All things Motorcycle Trials

Allan Jefferies Trophy Trial 30th July 2017

This prestigious event is typically well supported but this year in common with some other events the number of entries received, at least to date is unusually low and unless there is a late influx of entries there is a risk that the organisers may be forced to cancel.

 

There is still time to enter and the club are particularly keen to have more serious trials riders entering to compete over the Principal Allan Jefferies Course. However if this doesn’t suit there will also be an easier Clubman’s Course. Supplementary Regulations with Entry Form are available online from various sources including the ACU’s website but if you wish to receive “Regs” directly via email please make this request to the organisers using either the telephone number or email address listed below. Eligible riders wishing to enter should act now, before it is too late.

As always, there is the thorny problem of getting sufficient Observers and as some of the more remote sections are typically only accessible by motorcycle or on foot “Observers with Bikes” would be particularly welcome. Volunteers should be guaranteed a good run out on the day as well as a food voucher for the excellent fare available at the café. Anyone willing to help should contact the organisers – Tel: 07784186021 or email: bradfordanddmc@btinternet.com

As the course includes PUBLIC HIGHWAY and in places also crosses PUBLIC footpaths, competitors are reminded that they should moderate their speed accordingly and ride with consideration at all times.

Each competitor is further reminded that the machine on which they will be competing MUST be appropriately registered, taxed and insured. Riders must comply with all legal requirements and entries are conditional upon these important factors being met.

This event in the past has carried British Championship status and was ‘The one to win”. As with any event when it’s gone it’s gone and with it goes the land and the hazards. Let’s see a sudden rush of entries to keep this once great trial move back to carry the status it deserves.
