EKTC 12th March RESULTS LINK – Folkestone MCC

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.

Over the next few weeks there are several East Kent trials taking place including our own Weald Non Expert Trial on the 16th of April. Entries available via Sporting Motorcyclist or online for those linked below.
