THE Richmond Motor Club organised yet another Cogden Hall Two-Day Trials Training event for 60 boys and girls on Wednesday and Thursday July 30/31.
Eight classes of youngsters were taken through all aspects of trialling by Katy Sunter, John Sunter, Reeth Three Day winner James Lampkin, Gavin Lowther, national trials winners Dan Thorpe, Ian Austermuhle and S3 Parts champion Richard Sadler.
Matthew Maynard also made a great debut to the annual training school and created a big impression with the youngsters. Ros and Andrew Brown of AG Bikes donated vouchers as part of the awards structure.
JAMES DABILL won the third round of the ACU British Trials Championship at Addingham Moorside on Sunday but only by a slender margin of two penalties over Scarborough’s Michael Brown. The winner lost a mere four penalties on the Danny Cockshott designed Yeadon -Guiseley Motor Club course.
With another four events on the calendar this year the Keedwell backed series is going to run right down to the wire. Alexz Wigg salvaged third place from Jack Sheppard and Whitby’s Andy Chilton.
Denby Dale teenager Jack Price matched MRS Sherco teamster James Fry on penalties but took a fantastic eighth place scoring eight championship points. He is now ranked 11th tracking Richard Sadler and Dan Thorpe in the standings.
THE Acklams Motorcycles championship series headed for remote Low Skelding on Saturday afternoon where the Ripon Motor Club hosted the sixth event in the summer series of trial.
Ilkley Heating engineer Andy Tales set the benchmark and was on his way to overall best on the novice course but MRS Sherco employee Phil Hamond came up on the rails when Andy dropped three marks in section two to take the honours by two marks. Top youth Aldis Blacker did the same to Jack Harker, by two penalties, even after the latter had spent two days at the Cogden Hall training school.
Richard Taylor, Kevin Morley and teenager Joe Tales dominated the Greens with large winning margins .
The two Daves, Carr and Brogden, contained Steve Bradley and Repsol mounted Richard Thorpe in the Whiskerys.
