Richmond Motor Club. Hardstyles Easy Trial, Hardstyles, Marske, Sunday.

THE Richmond club changed down a gear after staging the Scott Trial last week to run the annual Hardstyles Easy Trial at Marske on Sunday. Sixty five competitors, in nine classes, rode a three-lap 12-section course on Gerald Horn's land plotted by clerk of course Andrew Swainston.

Paul Astwood marked out the easy conducted course for the youngsters. Rob Waite won a Scott Spoon and must have inspire his father Phil and daughter Beth because they both competed. Will Reynolds was out and about and keeping close eye on Class C youngsters Bailey Huntbach and Josh Dent, plus special attention on newcomer seven-year-old Penelope Gray. Names at the sharp end were Paul Wearmouth who won the main course without penalty while Leyburn joiner Paul Sadler topped the over 40s ranks.

Callum Fowler put in the cracking ride to win the Youth Class B. His mother Sandra will be suited with his one penalty result as will Clare Storrow, whose son Edward posted runner-up to Callum.

Richmond will run again on November 21 at Hurst where the annual Eric Ridley Trial will attract a strong entry.
