John Bolton Trophy Trial

A very warm and sunny day for this year's novice trial. The recent dry spell led to dry going on the sections and subsequently a low scoring event. Paul Kettlewell does it again and goes round the 39 sections clean on the main route and so will have his name added to the John Bolton Trophy.

On the 50/50 route Callum Burgin losing only 2 marks took the win on this course.

On the Clubman route Katie Ward repeated her success from the 4th round of the Novice & Beginners series, incidentally losing the same marks (8), but this time riding a more modern bike.

John Bolton Trophy Trial

Other News news

Novice & Beginners Trial

A severe shortage of observers for today's trial led to many of our regular club riders doubling up and doing observers duties as well as riding, many thanks to those.

A pleasant sunny afternoon greeted the riders at Post Hill today. The king did it again! Paul Kettlewell going round clean today leading 7 riders all under 10 marks lost.

Riders on the 50/50 course having a harder time with winner on this route, Jonathan Wilson, losing 11 marks, 8 of which were on the tricky tenth section.

On the Beginners route, Andy Turver had a comfortable lead to take the win on this route.


Stan Pitts Trial

A fairly depleted entry list for this year's running of the Stan Pitts Trophy Trial. Richard Sadler just getting the better of Dan Thorpe by a 3 mark advantage took the premier award.

On the Clubman A route it was Katy Sunter who had a 2 mark advantage over second place taking the award for best 50/50 rider.

On the Clubman B route Phillip Hammond had a clear margin to take the win on this route.

Mixed weather for the duration of the trial. Sunny intervals and the odd light shower, fairly windy throughout, but a heavy shower after the event drenched the officials who were still clearing up.


Novice & Beginners Trial

The king of Post Hill has been toppled from his perch! Going round the main route for a loss of only 1 mark Chris Hirst took the win from second place Paul Kettlewell who lost 3 single dabs. Paul has won the previous 3 rounds.

A fairly overcast day to start with, but dry. The sun did shine later during the event making the temperature pleasant.

On the 50/50 course and never quite mastering the tricky tenth section losing 9 of his 13 marks here; Matthew Morrel's score of 13 was still good enough to take the win on this route.

What must be a first for Post Hill at least; we had a female competitor losing least marks on the Beginners route and riding a pre 65 bike! Katie Ward dropped just 8 marks to take the win on this route.

The March of Time

As time passes we all get older even West Leeds club officials, hard to believe – right!

Some of our officials are well past retiring age and we now need some computer whizz kid to start learning the ropes of the stuff our present trials secretary deals with – basically results, preparing event paperwork etc. Various systems are in place which without any instruction our present club officials would find unfathomable!(no disrespect). Are you up to the challenge? Do you know anything about spreadsheets, are you computer literate? We would love to hear from you!
