ACU Oset British Solo Youth B,C and D Trials Championship Round 4

Two rounds of the British Solo Youth championships were held on the lower reaches of Dartmoor on the last weekend in May 2015. Taking advantage of the school holidays riders came from all parts of the UK from as far afield as Lochaber in the Highlands.

Round 3 was hosted by the Moretonhampstead Club in the woods above Lustleigh which provided a variety of terrain in the wooded valley and included many Granite outcrops, hill climbs and tree roots on most sections. Billy Green might have been expected to win on his home ground and home club, but after only loosing 1 mark on the first lap he lost a 5 on a steep granite rock with multi steps and came crashing back down with only his pride taking a knock. Keiran Child from Horsforth had 3 steady laps to take the B class honours.

Day 2 and round 4 of the series hosted by the West of England Club on their BTC adult solo course at Kelly Farm on the other side of the valley which is split by a minor tectonic plate fault known as Lustleigh Cleave. There were no major eruptions in the classes during the trial and the overnight rain just managed to put some grip into the dry conditions although some leaf mould was carried up onto the grippy granite climbs and steps. On the red route for B class riders Billy managed to turn the tables on Kieron by a good 10 marks to return to winning ways and retain his lead in the Championships.

The 81 riders were pleased that the warm sun came through after lunch and Lewis Hurdsman was pleased to finish his weekend with a 3rd place after his win at Bullaton to come away as Championship leader in the D class small wheel group. Harry Turner who this year has moved to the C Class medium wheel took the win on both days A sprited ride was made by George Hemingway on the Oset 20 aviating his front wheel in sheer delight.

As all the families made their way home with tired lads and dads there were many smiling faces.
