2019 Boxing Day Trial Charity Trial

Results rochdalemc2019.12.26

The Boxing Day Trial Charity Trial was run once again at Back Cowm, this raises money in conjunction with John at Cowm Leisure, last years worthy causes were, Men in Sheds, and Cancer Research. This years charities have not yet been chosen, we have a meeting early next year, but if anyone has any ideas, please get in touch.

        We tried something a bit different for this years trial, 10 sections instead of 8, and a wheelie section, just as a bit of fun, Keith Goodwin surprised me on this especially as he is a beginner rider on my old Fantic 240, he showed up many others as he carried on towards the national gulley on his back wheel….
        I had help on christmas eve setting out, Andy Cripps, Charlie and Harry, along with Colin Blunt, much appreciated and always welcome, we were short of observers on the day, but a big thanks to those who did pick up a board, especially Bill Francis who made the trip from Diggle to help out.
         Thanks to Charlie Cripps, Harry and Harry Bayman for putting out route markers and bringing in those sections which had no observer, John at Cowm Leisure for the use of his land, and  the riders, for your support throughout the year.
        Our next trial is the 26th Jan, The Harry Robinson Trial, @back cowm, until then, have a happy new year and all the best for 2020….

Time and Observation trial

It has been discussed casually about the feasability of running a time and observation trial at  the 400 acres venue in 2015.  One member has come up with idea of running a route in the morning for novice and beginners  and one later for expert and intermediate riders, this would allow for the riders to observe the sections. Hard route riders to observe the first session and easy route to observe second session and so on. Is this type of event something that our members are interested in? Any feedback from you will be welcome i will post on Facebook page also.
