Kershaw hits top form to win Kay Trophy at Ouseburn
3:56pm Friday 1st March 2013 in Sport
EBORACUM MC held their popular Kay Trophy Trial on Sunday at Moor Farm, Ouseburn, which saw Scarborough’s Simon Kershaw hit top form to take silverware.
A bright, but bitterly cold day with snow flurries stopped the 93 entrants from hanging about – thankfully for the observers.
Kershaw proved just too experienced over this rocky and steep woodsided venue course for young Pocklington rider Ollie Kendra, but Kendra put a good ride together to pip Yarm’s Stevie Suddes for runner-up. Kershaw earned his win with fine rides on the hillside rocks of section six where Scarborough club stalwart PeteRace observed losing only three marks to Kendra’s nine.
Suddes and Richie Kendra also had their moment of glory here with just two marks lost.
TWR Gas Gas riders Mark Smith and Nick Coleby edged hard fought wins in Clubman A and B – Smith by one mark from Wetherby’s Rob Hardisty and Shane Monkman, from Wombleton, in Clubman A – and Coleby on most cleans rule from the experienced Ian Myers in Clubman B. Coleby cleaned everything until the mud and rocks of Sue Wainwright’s section eight.
Folifoot youngster Ben Goddard found it tough going as a sole Youth class A entrant, but gained a finish, and Scarborough siblings Zac and Claire Collinson wrapped up Class B and Class D wit Claire remaining unpenalised. Thomas Constantine, from Richmond, won the Youth class C.
THE white-out continued on the motorcycle trials scene whenupto six inches of snow caused the Harold Graham Trophy trial to be cancelled at short notice on Sunday.
The trial was planned for Cogden Hall and now Richmond MC secretary Julia Robinson is seeking another date on the hectic trials calendar. Two hours after Richmond cancelled, the Consett club postponed their Will Robson Trophy Trial at Houndsgill Farm where a similar blanket of snow beat the organisers.
SCARBOROUGHDMCare aiming to putthe fun back into the trials scene on Sunday, March 10 at Low North Park with a Red Nose Day event.
The meeting will have 12 sections (if possible) and three laps around the old Army camp with a 10am start – or thereabouts. There will be no stop rules, as well as face painting for big and little kids.
Usual safety wear must be worn, along with any dressing up that takes your fancy, but above all else a red nose must be worn.
