  1. Whats gone wrong with Trials.

    Just my two pennorth FWIW. Assuming there are more than two routes then how about this. On the easiest of routes only then the winner of the Club Championship has to move up to the next class the following year and cant drop back. One proviso if they are insistent on riding the easiest route then they score 0 Championship points so just ride for the fun of it. My old club had 5 routes, 3 in the sections as two were 50/50 routes, so there was a route above the easy route which rode 4 or 5 of the easier Intermediate sections and 5 or 6 of the easiest sections. Worth a try as the new season creeps over the horizon ?
  2. Just a quick note for all the friends and supporters of Peak Classic Trials Club. I have just updated the clubs website at www.peakclassic.co.uk with results of last Sundays trial at Sacheveral Farm along with current 2018 Club Championship standings. Feel free to go and have a look and see how your friends are doing

  4. Had a couple of people contact me about the Easy / Beginner trial and Mick Andrews Training day this Sunday at Carsons farm, Grange Mill, Derbyshire. DE4 4HY BOTH EVENTS WILL MOST DEFINITELY STILL BE GOING AHEAD. THEY WILL NOT BE CANCELLED. NO NEED. I was up there today to see what the venue was like after yesterdays rain and the ground is bone dry and as ALL the sections are laid out easy I cant see a problem. Same with the Mick Andrews Training day. Venue opens 9.30am Easy / Beginner trial starts 11.00am. Mick Andrews Training day can all people already entered please arrive no later than 10.30 so that Mick can start promptly. So full steam ahead and see you there.

  6. Classic trials clubs in mid wales

    Thanks lsv ive put them into Google maps and they are just over 2 1/2 hours away. Looks like thats my only option. Heard good things about Aqueduct Suppose ive been spoilt as never had to travel more than an hour at most to get to a trial before. Thanks for the suggestions.
  7. Classic trials clubs in mid wales

    I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for clubs that hold trials suitable for British Bikes / Pre 65 in Wales or more specifically mid wales. I know of Aqueduct but thats more north wales. Just wondering if there are any or many. Any suggestions ? Cheers
  8. I've been down there today laying out the sections for Sundays event and the venue is in superb condition. The rocky stream bed, which is such a nice change to ride as we get less and less chance to ride streams nowadays, has just the right amount of water running down and the valley sides are bone dry. The course will be a mixture of stream sections and climbs on the valley side so something for everyone with routes to suit beginners right up to Expert level. So dont miss out on your chance to come and ride with us at this super venue in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District. See you Sunday

  11. Well I collected the Cub today.

    A lot of "shed engineering" been going on there. Make do and mend is all very fine on a budget but the real killer at most clubs, forget the Scottish because they would just laugh, is that hydraulic clutch. They might turn a blind eye, as long as you are not winning anything lol, to the front end and the carb but that clutch would be a "problem" for most clubs. So "specials" it would be or maybe Twinshocks for some clubs. However you may know better. If you just want to ride it then it doesnt really matter what class you are put in because you still ride the same sections. Good luck with getting it fettled. Youve got a busy winter coming up but thats half the fun. Be nice to see a before and after shot.
  12. BSA Bantam rear hub widening

    By the time youve done you might as well buy a billet alloy one from Alan Whitton in Dronfield.
