SCARBOROUGH’S Simon Kershaw rode to a convincing win at Middlesbrough and DMC’s Charity Two-Day Trial last weekend, with proceeds going to the Air Ambulance.
The event centred on the challenging moorland around Woodhead Farm, Fryup, North Yorkshire. Saturday saw the top experts trying to gain advantage of dry rocks.
The non appearance of Ian Austermuhle left it wide open for Kershaw, Milner or Howell to win. Milner produced something like his best form as Howell faded in what was a tough day, but Kershaw kept his head to win by a convincing margin. Pye blitzed the opposition to win the intermediate class on a score of just ten, with Taylor second.
RIPON MC’s Acklams Motorcycles summer championship series ended with a classy entry at Kingstone Farm, Fellbeck on Saturday where Pat and Norman Shepherd hosted the seventh and final trial in the series.
The entry rocketed with 104 riders aiming for an end-ofseason points bonanza.
The small wheelers, 23 in total, enjoyed a mild short course of five sections more or less hovering around the legendary Holly Tree with climbs and descents up and over small rocks intermingled with slippery grass. The stars were Luke Constantine, Harry Mugridge and Conrad Andrew. Andy Tales was heading for a clean sheet ride ahead of Bevan Blacker and Phillip Hammond but the Ilkley rider stopped on the third lap in the middle of the eighth sections and Donna Dagbilen gave him a five for his pains.
THE weather forecast dictated the schedule for the penultimate easy trial on the Pickering DMC’s calendar on Sunday at Cow House Bank, Helmsley. The sections were marked easy in view of the bad forecast but on Sunday conditions in East Yorkshire held steady, so 19 competitors embarked on a four lap 11 section event. The last trial of the year will be at Riseborough on October 20.
