Richard Timperley, Leigh Elliot, Mark Timperley and Jonny Carr laid out the course and did a great job of handling the new woodland sections. Thanks to all the S&H team for the job of setting up on the day and helping raise money along the way.
All the riding aside we managed to raise over £1100 between the chosen charity Bluebell Wood Hospice.
A massive thank you goes to the landowner for allowing the event to take place and to all the observers who braved the intense heat to support the event and make it as special as it always is. Thank you again to all who came and contributed without you it wouldn’t be possible.
On Sunday 25th August, Sheffield & Hallamshire MCC will run our annual Brough Rough’N Andy Atkinson Memorial charity trial at the fantastic Elmore Hill Farm, Brough, Derbyshire.
The event first ran in 2013 and has continued to grow ever since as it is quite unique compared to most trials as everybody rides the same route. The sections vary in difficulty so there is something for everybody and the hardest sections are graded. This year is a slightly different format which is largely to try and get everybody finishing at a more similar time and shorten the day for the observers. There is 3 laps of 15 sections for everybody over a 6 mile moorland lap with sections varying from rocky streams to huge graded hills and maybe the odd bog thrown in for good measure. All proceeds are going to Bluebell Wood Childrens Hospice as in previous years.
We have the usual charity raffle immediately after the event with some great prizes and there are some Michelin tyres to be won this year along with other great products from trials suppliers and local businesses.
Catering will be available at the start all day along with an ice cream van if the weather allows – fingers crossed.
The entry fee is £20.00 and observers are required who will be paid £20.00 and will receive a voucher for the catering van. Obviously the £20.00 can be donated to charity if they so wish.
The start will be signposted and can only be accessed via Duper Lane, Abney, Derbyshire, S32 1AH with entries closing at 10.30 ready for an 11.00am start.
If anybody can help observing or would like to donate anything to the raffle then please contact Richard Timperley on 07545 468341 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
