Sunday saw a brilliant East Kent Combine Trial run by our friends at the Folkestone club at Harbledown,  a good mix of manufactured man made sections with logs and rocks and a collection of stream and camber sections. The trial was rewarded with good weather and a decent entry of over 50 riders. A link to the results HERE on the Folkestone site. Well done to the Folkestone Team who had clearly put in a lot of effort in setting out the trial.
