DOUGIE LAMPKIN again demonstrated his almost mystical skills at Addingham Moorside, riding his Vertigo machine on the 13-section trials course without incurring a single penalty.

This display bettered the score of Leyburn joiner Richard Sadler by just three penalties. Third place went to a Lampkin nephew in 15-year-old Harry Hemingway, who heads a list of top level trials names – Jack Challoner, Ben Hemingway, Jack Peace and Bradley Bullock to name but a few.

The third section to the north boundary was cleaned by Lampkin on all three visits and Jack Challoner on his second lap. Jack Peace just about matched Dougie with two solid rides marred by a stop on lap two, but the Sherco was right on top of the section.

Richard Sadler's hopes took a knock with two dabs then a third on the steep, twisting rocky sixth section where no rider on the hard route stopped.

Graham Tales won Clubman A from Adam Thornton and Paul Jackson tied for second place with Katy Sunter Thorpe making the section look easy. She took fifth place.
