An extra big thank you to all the observers who have travelled far and wide to help us run the trial, and those who have given up their day, even if they haven’t come with a rider. We appreciate all the help from all observers as we couldn’t run these events without you!

Thank you to Richard Timps, Joe Spivey and Mick Dubik for setting out.

Thank you to Bex & Maralyn for sorting the entries & everyone involved!

Our next trial is at a great new venue on the 19th February, and we are really excited about riding there! The trial starts at 10:30am with three routes for all adult solos and youth A, B & C.

New Venue Address: Stonedge Quarry Darley Road Stonedge Chesterfield S45 0LW

We have managed to get permission to use this land that we used to use 20 years ago. At the landowners request, there is to be no riding on this land except for organised events, doing so risks losing this land again!

Some photos below, thank you to Gillian Lawson!
