The famous Brough Rough N’ is back again! This year it will be held on Sunday the 4th September. We have been given kind permission by the landowner to run the event again and he has even been kind enough to allow us to increase the number of riders allowed to enter this year!
Pre-entries information can be found below, and entries will also be taken on the day on a first-come-first-served basis. The trial starts at 11am, so make sure you arrive around 10am to get signed on in time and to buy raffle tickets, etc.
This years nominated charity is Bluebell Wood Children Hospice in Sheffield. We are attempting to raise £2000 so the hospice can buy an emergency ‘care at home’ bag, for the children who can’t leave their homes. If you would like to find out more, please visit their website: http://
If you haven’t ridden the Brough Rough N’ before, it is a trial like no other! It is a big lap, all off road, 1 route trial. The sections range from very easy, to almost impossible, but nothing is dangerous! Sections close at 4pm and you choose the amount of laps you want to do.
Make sure you bring plenty of cash with you, as there will be a raffle and food and drinks for sale to raise as much money as possible for Bluebell Wood Hospice.

Another great turn out for the first ever Oset evening trial at Unthank Hall Farm! Special thanks to the land owner who was very kind to let us use this perfect bit of land. We had some great sections with varying difficulty and a lovely patch of mud at the bottom which went down well with all the kids…not so much the parents…! Not sure why…!
Special thanks also need to go to the riders and their families, for taking part and for their enthusiasm. It looked like everyone had a great time.
Well done to Thomas Wright riding the hard route – oozing confidence and wowing all the observers! Well done also to Tyler Atkinson for coming first on the medium route – so many cleans and only one 5 on Section 4! Lukas Butcher also deserves a big well done for coming first on the easy route. Fantastic work all of you!

On Sunday 15th May, Sheffield and Hallamshire trials club held their first Oset trial of the year. These trials are aimed at children who are new to trials and just want to ride and have fun.
There were a few who came for their first ever trial and some who came along to spectate and find out more. All of the kids put in some great effort and had lots of fun, which is what it’s all about! All the family is welcome and it was great to see everyone supporting the kids and watch them grow in confidence in the sections.
The group usually splits in to two groups to allow the kids more riding time, first completing a set of 5 sections one way then after lunch the same 5 sections are ridden in reverse. There’s always a chance for the kids to have a play about at the end too.
For Max and Lucas it was their first trial and they both put in lots of effort in the sections. Well done to Theon and Stanley for a joint first place and Sam for winning their respective routes. A huge well done to all.
