The Hallamshire Trial – ACU Normandale Masters Championship

On Sunday 28th October, Sheffield & Hallamshire MCC are hosting ‘The Hallamshire Trial’ which is the final round of the ACU Normandale Masters Championship.

Originally this trial was due to be a resurrection of the Peak Trial which has been a round of the ACU Solo, Sidecar and Novogar (now S3) championships but the club have encountered land access issues at the last minute forcing the tough decision of whether to cancel or not.

The enthusiastic bunch at S&H don’t give up that easily though and after some stress and many phone calls and emails to landowners, Richard and Mark Timperley have managed to create a completely brand new 2 lap road based trial which is now centred in the small village of Barlow which is approximately 3 miles from Chesterfield and lies on the edge of the Peak District National Park so offers easy access for everybody.

The route is being finalised as you read this and it is looking like a 5 or so mile lap with 20 traditional sections so causes no fuelling issues as the last sections are at the start. Some sections may be familiar to some riders but the majority will be new and the potential for this trial going forward is massive as land is becoming available to us.

The usual Normandale classes are all catered for and there will also be a Clubman A & B class and Expert route for any non-championship riders.
The start venue offers a hard standing car park, on site café which will be serving food all day and permanent toilet facilities.

The start time is a bright and breezy 9:00 am for the first riders to ensure the best is made of the daylight available. The clocks go back the night before so everybody gets an extra hour in bed anyway!

Entries are now open via the ACU Online Entry system via this link: https://www.ride-acu.uk/Secure/Login.aspx?EventGUID=dc1ce3e8-d477-4702-827b-9928491a62a7

Entries close at midnight on 22/10/18. Please direct any further enquiries to Richard Timperley on 07545 468341 or via email: secretary.sheffandhallamtrials@gmail.com

Thank you to Richard Timps, Joe Spivey and Mick Dubik for setting out.

Thank you to Bex & Maralyn for sorting the entries & everyone involved!

We have managed to get permission to use this land that we used to use 20 years ago. At the landowners request, there is to be no riding on this land except for organised events, doing so risks losing this land again!

S&H – East Midlands Oset Cup – Rd 4 Results

Another great turn out for the first ever Oset evening trial at Unthank Hall Farm! Special thanks to the land owner who was very kind to let us use this perfect bit of land. We had some great sections with varying difficulty and a lovely patch of mud at the bottom which went down well with all the kids…not so much the parents…! Not sure why…!

Special thanks also need to go to the riders and their families, for taking part and for their enthusiasm. It looked like everyone had a great time.

Well done to Thomas Wright riding the hard route – oozing confidence and wowing all the observers! Well done also to Tyler Atkinson for coming first on the medium route – so many cleans and only one 5 on Section 4! Lukas Butcher also deserves a big well done for coming first on the easy route. Fantastic work all of you!

Results can be downloaded here: 20-7-16 Unthank evening trial (PDF)

A massive thank you as always to the observers – Joe Spivey, Jess Bown, Jonny Carr, Laura Carr and Robin Charles. And special thanks to Jonny for setting up the sections.

We hope to see you all on the 10th September at Burrycliffe Quarry at 10:30am.
