Despite the threat of wet weather the 2016 ACU British Trial Championship two day event at Fell Green, Bootle in Cumbria welcomed the warm spring weather. A tough tweleve section three lap course had been set out with a wide variety of terrain available at this moorland venue for the entry of just under twenty riders. After a tough day one of competition the organising club eased the hazards for day two which was welcomed by the majority of the rider’s enterd in the championship class.
Dec Bullock: “I started the new BTC season with a good solid opening score but I could not carry this momentum into the second lap and my score wiped out what could have been potentially a good result. I came back strong on the last lap but the damage was already done pushing me down the order to a very disappointing twelfth position”
“I approached the second day with a fresh mind and with three good lap scores I just missed the top five. I felt very strong on the machine and very much rode my own event. Once again it was my second lap score which kept me out of the top five but seventh position gave me some good championship points”
“The weekends results could have been better and I need to finish higher up the order to pull me up the championship table. Once I can become more consistent I am sure the results will improve at the second round in May”
“It’s now time to focus on my next event which is round two of the FIM Trial World Championship in Japan this weekend where the aim once again is the top five”
