2020 26th January Harry Robinson Trial

Results rochdalemc2020.01.26

It was a cold wet day at Back Cowm Quarry for this years trial, which saw 50 odd riders tackle some wet and greasy sections in full view of the lads in their 4 wheel drives who were also using the quarry for their monthly day out.

We were short of a few observers  but the first 4 were manned, Steve Ellis on number 1, a difficult one for the experts with the grip level so low, 2 was watched by Stephen Hoyland sat in the comfort of his pickup, again this looked hard for the experts, but Charlie Cripps is beginning to really progress at this level and should be the one to beat in the not too distant future.
3 was a shale hill climb, very slippy on the turn before you went up , and 4 was opposite the brick crusher, observed by Bill Francis, again sat in the comfort of his vehicle, this had a tricky turn on the main route that needed a good line to get a clean, 6 and 7 were in the very back of the quarry, both had no observers with  riders having to judge each other, section 8 had no observer for a while but later Paul Heyes wife walked up to take over, Margaret and Lauren were on 9, and again the riders had to mark each other on 10.
       The weather turned out to be a bit miserable on the day and this may have had an effect on the entry which was a bit down on previous years, but the trial itself was about right for the conditions . Thanks to everyone who observed, John at Cowm for the use of the land, and all the riders for your support.
