2017 22nd Jan Harry Robinson Trial, Championship Rd 1 of 5

Results rochdalemc2017.01.22

This year’s trial was once again at Back Cowm, a trial that usually has  a good turnout, but this year we were taken by surprise as everyone made their way to Whitworth, for a good days sport, resulting in a bumper entry of 107 riders.

Many had travelled a fair distance including quite a few from Bradford Trials Club which has a lot of promising youngsters, which include Beth Dunning, Olivia Brooksbank, both on the intermediate route, and Lucy Ayrton on the beginners route, all with lots of promise, which is good for our sport.

In the experts, there was a welcome return for local lad Josh Law, Andy Holker also dusted off his Gas Gas, in the inters Josh Chew continues to push himself as he comes to terms with the new route, as always the clubman route attracted most of the riders with Martin Jackson making a welcome return despite having a dodgy knee, in the beginners Lee Titley continues to improve and Glen Gosling braved the cold conditions to complete, what in the end a long day for everyone.

Most managed to finish the 4 laps , ten sections, some of which were long but flowed pretty well, yes they got slippy , tricky in places and we even got some of the white stuff for good measure.

Thanks to John at Cowm leisure for the use of the land, Ian Blackburn, Lordy and Andy Fitz for setting out, and the ten observers…

Our next trial is round one of our novice beginner series, 12th Feb, more details we be on our website and trials central, see you all soon….
