Onward and upward for OSET

OSET Blkes will support six new clubs in 2012 as it looks to take its OSET Cup Series nationwide. Following on from last year’s success, which saw more than 40 different riders take part in six events, OSET will now support Horsforth and Spen Valley in Yorkshire, Owls MC and No Limits Trials Academy in Kent and Midland’s clubs, Nene Valley and Earl Shilton.

Horsforth DMC has teamed up with OSET premier dealer, Trials UK to run Yorkshire’s OSET Cup this year, as it takes over the mantle from Yeadon Guiseley DMC. This flagship championship will take into account the best six results over eight events and includes an OSET weekender event in mid-September.

Nige Pearson of Trials UK and Horsforth club member, said; “We’re absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to take the OSET Cup E-Class championship forward this year. We know there is a growing demand for e-class events and are very excited about working closely with OSET and Dave Horne who set up the inaugural Cup last year, to ensure our conducted routes deliver fun-packed, challenging and safe events for the young riders.”

The Yorkshire clubs, Horsforth and Spen Valley have worked together to ensure their events don’t clash. Horsforth DMC will run events on Sundays with Spen Valley running a conducted Saturday summer series.

In the Midlands, family-friendly club, Earl Shilton will run a conducted e-class route, supported by OSET, across 10 events all on its own land just off the M69. Nene Valley meanwhile will include an e-class within its existing trials rounds.

Meanwhile across the south of the UK youngsters will be able to enjoy conducted e-class events at the No Limits Trials Academy. Owls MC will welcome e-class riders to their small wheel’s courses.

Barry Huskinson of OSET Bikes, said: “So far 2012 is shaping up to be a great year for OSET riders. With events up and down the country that are compatible for kids who may have only been riding a matter of weeks and equally are ideal for those motoring ahead in their ability to control their bikes, makes for an exciting prospect in terms of attracting new riders to clubs and to the sport.

“I would encourage any club interested in receiving OSET support to get in touch and we’ll do all we can to help you get an e-class event up and running.
