Back cowm quarry was the venue for the first trial of the year for the Rochdale club, with 80 riders it was a good turn out, with riders once again traveling considerable distances to ride. Section one observed by Neil Anderton was a tricky one for the hard route boys with only Andy Cripps and Jack Price Brad and Dec Bullock cleaning on the first lap Julian Ingham had a five here as did Richard Anderton. It was the youngsters who lead the way on the day with all three youth expert riders taking first second and third overall, Jack Price was in a league of his own dropping only 10 in total then it was the Bullock brothers with Brad on 20 and Dec on 22. In the adult class Andy Cripps got the win losing 27 in total a long way in front of second place man Julian Ingham who finished on a grand total of 66 marks lost third went to Paul Heyes on 76.
