Amended results now attached.. apologies Dean for missing you off and to Sophie who actually rode the youth novice route.
Following torrential rain on the Saturday the conditions on Sunday were perfect, the sections stayed dry and very little alterations were needed before the trial started. The Brush family arrived on mass over the weekend and along with Mike Nutbrown we managed to get all the sections laid out by early afternoon,it goes to prove that many hands make light work. The family numbers increased on Sunday with Jo providing the secretary duties, section of fine cakes, and husband Jeff as an observer. With all their help plus the usual backbone of helpers that observed and helped pack away at the end the whole weekend was a great success.
The most positive aspect of the trial was the number of youth riders that were present, they made up 25% of the numbers with 12 taking part. These kids have real potential to be very good riders and their enthusiasm was really inspiring. With the help of our own Mike Nutbrown we plus several other clubs are giving these kids access to practice and to improve and this is something that will sustain the sport for the future.
Well done to Mark Smith who took the overall win and will receive the “Murray Brush Trophy” at our presentation night early in the new year.
