Novice & Beginners

We have now a permit for our first round of this year's N&B series. See link in Events Diary panel to the right. Clicking this link will take you directly to the ACU Event Entry system. Once you get into the entry page you will be confronted with 12 choices, if you are an adult then only 3 will be applicable to you. Please try to make the correct choice: Either main route (suitable for experienced novice riders): 50/50 route (suitable for less experienced novice riders) or beginners route either for raw beginner or older bike/rider, or if you just want an easy ride! Changing course on the day is a bit of a headache for the secretary! as all the paperwork has been prepared and printed beforehand.

 

Sad News (Update)

We now have details of the funeral arrangements: This is to be on Monday the 31st January at Cottingley Crematorium 11:30am, no flowers, but donations to Yorkshire Air Ambulance and/or Dementia UK. There will be a reception following at the Gildersome Conservative Club.

 

We have just heard that a past president club of our club, Arnold Teal passed away yesterday. Arnold did a lot of work for this club including when the club used to run scrambles at Post Hill he acted as Scrambles Secretary and did a lot of the manual labour as well. He will be fondly remembered by all those who knew him. Sincere condolences to Rose and Arnolds family.

Presidents Trial

Novice rider Sam Ludgate dusted off the cobwebs from his old Jotagas, splashed some oil on the chain and rode this year's Presidents Trial and promptly posted the best performance and bagged the Frank Fletcher Trophy. Expert rider Liam Walker was relegated to second place, but for a single 5 on section 10 it could have been a different story.

Slithering round in the greasy conditions it was club chairman Nigel Crowther who just pipped Paul Kettlewell for the win by virtue of a most cleans tiebreak.

On the Clubman course it was veteran Stuart Oughton who just beat another veteran Chris Johnson for the win on this route.

 

Novice & Beginners Trial

A nice dry day for our return to Post Hill, 41 riders signed up for this event. Club Treasurer, Ben Ludgate and Daniel Hole, a Y&G member shared first place by virtue of the fact they both went clean on the Novice route.

Tony Calvert just pipped John Maxfield for the win on the 50/50 route by going furthest clean.

On the beginners route it was club member Mike Frizzell who took the win beating several younger riders.

 

NOTE: Our next event at Post Hill will be the annual Boxing day Presidents Trial. Entries now open on ACU website: See link in Events Diary panel.

 

Club Membership for 2022

With 2022 not so far away now, you may wish to apply or renew your club membership. If you apply to renew your membership on the ACU website first and then renew your trials registration you will not need a code. If you renew your membership through our website link then you will need a code before you can renew your trials registration. Just saves a bit of time doing both on ACU.

TrialsUK White Rose Trial

A dry day for this year's running of the TrialsUK White Rose Trial. First run in 1961 this makes it the 60th anniversary of the event. Richard Sadler has succeeded in achieving a hat trick of wins. Results file over on the Latest Result panel on the right.

 

John Bolton Trial

The weather stayed dry for two thirds of the event, but the last third saw some very heavy rain. Those in the know went round quickly and finished well before the rain started, notably Tom Green who won the Clubman event was finished and on his way home before some riders had completed one lap. The overall winner was 15 year old Harry Hemingway also just beating his brother George (13).

On the 50/50 route regular rider Paul Kettlewell had an easy win being well ahead of the rest of the field.

Stan Pitts Trophy Trial

The promised sunny afternoon never materialised for our Stan Pitts Trophy Trial, the riders were probably thankful for that, however it did stay dry and reasonably warm. On the main route it was Danny Gamble who headed the field losing 3 single dabs.

On the 50/50 option it was our club chairman, Nigel Crowther who managed to take the top spot despite an unfortunate five on section 10. The experience of Neil Gaunt paid off as he won the clubman course for a loss of 13 marks.

 

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 and webmaster deals with basically results + website maintenance and design. 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 and web programming? We would love to hear from you!
