George Clark (Onza) who is usually at home riding motorcycle trials would stand next to Nate on the 2nd spot dropping a total of 17 marks just the one on his last lap on section 1 the concrete waterfall, this was his very first cycle trial so he did very well adjusting to pedal power rules.
The third place was taken by Ben Woodcock (Ozony) who dropped 13 marks on section 6 the tractor tyres and the taped off gulley of rocks. Ben still tops the championship table in this class with 3 rounds to go.
The Novice class which had the most entry’s saw a tie between Casey Moore (Onnit) and Samuel Meeten (Monty) both finishing on 3 marks. Casey taking the win on 16 cleans to Samuels 15. Perry Meeten (Atomz) 5 marks adrift in 3rd place, William Clark (Ekinox) another new rider to cycle trials just the 6 marks lost on his last lap a well ridden trial by him as he too usually has an engine on two wheels.
Scott Wilson (B1K3) would be the overall winner in the Elite class on this occasion with a score of 13. Toby Smith (Ozony) continues in his winning spree in the Expert class with 4 wins under his belt. Darren Ring (GU) took the silver award, Elliott Tickner (Echo)3rd place and Adam Holt just missing the podium.
