JMC & LCC Jersey Two Day Trial Event

JMC & LCC Jersey Two Day Trial Event 11th and 12th November 2023

Trial 2 Men’s World Champion dominates over the trials weekend  

World Trial 2 Men’s Champion Billy Green lived up to his reputation as he claimed JMC & LCC’s 2022 Versus Finance Two-Day Trial.

The annual showcase event has seen an ever-increasing number of top riders from the United Kingdom travelling to Jersey to test their skills on the varied trials sections that the Island has to offer. 

These included 9 x Trial GP World Women’s Champion Emma Fry (Bristow) MBE (being awarded this for services to motorsport and women in sport). Emma won the highest placed female rider with a well-deserved overall 5th place and the crowds were delighted to see her ride again in Jersey.   

Green dropped just 14 points across the 30 sections of Saturday and Sunday, 13 of these were in the extreme wet conditions of last Sunday, after a near flawless performance on Saturday losing only 1 point.

James Fry took 2nd place on 36 points, and Harry Turner claiming the final podium spot, dropping 50 points overall. Oliver Smith came fourth, followed by Emma Fry (Bristow).

The Maine Cup was awarded to the top Jersey rider in the Expert class, this was claimed by Adam Le Cheminant, who lost 198 points across the weekend. Closely followed by Joshua Troy and thereafter Lee Rogan. 8th, 9th and 10th respectively. It is also worth mentioning the youngest rider of the 2 day Tom Le Breton who debuted well and was welcomed with an overall 12th place in the Expert route.

In the B+ group, Nick Life was first overall followed by Anthony Millar and Ty Hendra. 

Elsewhere, there was more success for Jersey in the Clubman class, with Glen Hamel claiming top spot, with another Jersey rider taking second place Ricky Morin, closely followed by Guernsey man Ben le Page taking third.

All local riders in this group, Gary White shone in the C+ class with Terry Gibaut taking runner up spot and Charles Hamel taking 3rd.

In the C route this was won by Steve Kenny, 2nd Richard Wareham and 3rd Dragos Plataga all from the same UK club Pathfinders & Derby MC.

Trials were the first events that the JMC & LCC started with dating back to 6 April 1920.

The two-day event was incorporated just a few years later into the annual calendar and, despite the pandemic, weather conditions (such as this weekend) continues to attract big names from the UK and France.

The JMC & LCC would like to thank all the observers, officials, landowners and Parishes who were involved across the weekend.
