  3. Last Round of ACU Acklams Beta British Ladies and

    Girls Trials Championships 28th October 2018

     

    With just under four weeks to go until the last round of the British Ladies and Girls Championship, the Trials Park at Corton has seen lots of hard work carried out to provide an event of worthy status. As you may know, our original venue for the event became unavailable and we are very grateful to Chris Edwards of the Trials Park for coming on board; just a pity it’s not closer to Chelmsford in Essex !!

    We are pleased to say that four of the eight Championships will still up for grabs on the 28th October.

    In the Ladies, five times World Champion Emma Bristow holds off Jess Bown with both winning and coming second respectively in all previous rounds. The Ladies 50/50 sees Bethanie Dunning battling with Chloe Baker for Championship honours. The Ladies Intermediate crusade has seen the closest fought contest with Catherine Alford and Jazz Hammond; the Gas Gas and Sherco ladies only separated by four points. Elizabeth Tett holds a small advantage over Kaytlyn Adshead in the Girls B Championship.

    The challenges facing the Ladies range from exposed tree roots, muddy climbs, concrete blocks and steps and everything else the Trials Park can offer. Overcoming these obstacles feet up will see the Champions crowned.

    Please come along to spectate and watch the best Lady riders in the country do battle for the last time in 2018. We can guarantee great close up viewing and a short walk between sections.

    Action gets under way at 10.30 28th October

  4. FYI

    From the FIM Technical regulations

    19.02

    The use of ballast to stay over the minimum weight is forbidden. The term "ballast"

    refers to as any component, device or part, the primary function of which is to add

    weight to the machine. All components, devices and parts must be firmly fixed to the

    motorcycle.

     


  5. Just got home after the Sheffield Trial last night. Great entertainment and some fantastic rides to challenge Toni Bou. That's Bou as in Boo not Bow as in Cow...commentators please note. Anyone I spoke to who came from South of Derby had great difficulty understanding any of the commentary and I was amazed to read in the program ( free...I was surprised too ) the two muppets had been doing the commentary for the last 12 years.

    Apart from that moan a great night and hope Jack has a speedy recovery ;)


  6. I have three words for you. Boring, boring, boring. If I wanted to watch riders doing big loops and riding on the flat ground, going back on themselves against the direction of the section, I would watch the novice route at my local club trial. The top riders must be taking medication to stay awake ! Japan and USA seem to have been laid out in the same way. Yes maybe the camera flattens the gradient of descent or climb but it does look as if I could have a go at some of the sections. Maybe this is what was intended by the FIM, get your average Intermediate club rider to enter world rounds.

    Let's be honest the WTC is a circus, that only the top 4 or 5 Spanish riders have a hope of winning. Let them ride X trials or Red Bull sponsored events, make lots of money and open trials training schools in Andalucia. The paying public will want to see excitement and riding that is so far out of reach as not to be true, but as we all know only these skills are displayed by the top Spaniads. Their economy is in ruins, let Dietrich Mateschitz help them out. When they have retired, then the next level of riders will still ride at World level, just a tier down from the Bou dominated era. Might even get a British world champion again.

    As for non stop it's just farcical as seen by the dubious and extremely subjective marking. I won't be going to Carlise this year, maybe my loss, but I've just painted my fence and viewing that drying seems more interesting

  7. Raga300 is talking about my bike :D :D

    AJP cylinders look good to me. Bike feels great but heavier than my 2009 Raga. Will run in slowly but at the moment bike feels very smooth and stable and suspension is super smooth. Will let you know how first trial goes on Sunday

  9. Fantastic trial with a great variation in section design and layout. Just one question. Not that it effects my riding but the program stated it was a no stop trial. Half way round the first lap I overheard someone say it was stop allowed. Then on the second lap there was a sign at the start of the 18th section saying it was a no stop section...never seen that before. As I said it didn't change my riding and it was by far the best trial I have ridden in a long time. Just curious
