Banbridge & District MCC 2 day Classic Trial

Recommended Posts

For the last ten years the Banbridge & District Motorcycle Club have run one of the few classic trials in Northern Ireland; this year they stepped up a gear and organised a two day event. The venues for Saturday and Sunday were only about 10 minutes apart, with camping available beside Turley's Bar and the Flax restaurant. Mervyn set out a great course with hard and easy routes, catering for both Pre 65s and twin shocks. The easy route was negotiable by novices but still included enough to challenge the concentration and skills of the more experienced riders.  Each day was set out as 4 laps of 10 sections, all off road so no road traffic requirements.  The majority of the entry was made up by twin shock's, but given the sections there was no excuse for not having a larger entry of Pre 65 and pre-unit bikes for this event.

Typical Northern Ireland weather included everything from thunder showers (Sat morning) to glorious sunshine, with several pints of refreshment in Turley's needed to replenish the riders at the end of the day.

If anyone is thinking of taking a trip over to Ireland I'd highly recommend you keep an eye open for next years event. Have a look at the youtube video (https://youtu.be/rGbyj3exzbk) to get a feel for this year's event
