KIA National Twinshock Championship - Round 4

Round four of the 2017 KIA Cars sponsored Twinshock Championship was hosted by Scunthorpe Motor Cycle Club at the very scenic Ledgerwood Country Park that overlooks the Trent Falls, the point where the Rivers Humber ,Trent and Ouse join.

 

Heavy Overnight rain got Clerk of the Course, Mark Garrod out and about early and was forced to make a number of slight section adjustments. As the riders started gathering at the venue, the rain clouds disappeared and by the start time, the 116 competitors were bathed in glorious sunshine that lasted all day.

 

The two section start, section saw riders setting off at two minute intervals to tackle the 20 section, 2 lap event. Experts route riders starting at section 1 with the clubman having to deal with a challenging decent onto the River Trent foreshore to reach their first section of the day – section 9.

 

There was little drama for the Experts early on until they arrived at section 5, a challenging section filled with very awkward logs and roots. Andy Hipwell gave an excellent demonstration of petrol tank dint prevention by lying on the floor under the bike, feet still on the pegs after not quite making it over the big tangled tree!

 

Section 7 allowed Ian Peberdy to get his beautiful sounding Triumph twin on full noise to hop over the three sets of awkwardly spaced big rocks as well as any modern lightweight mono to take an easy British / Pre 72 class win.

 

The Long narrow rocky Section 10 only had two double clean rides on the expert route, one being Eventual overall Winner Chris Alford fresh from his SSDT special first class award and twin shock specialist Veteran Roman Kyrnyyckyj who was later disappointed to five his 39th section trying to hang on for a clean after getting slightly off line.

 

Up at the stream end of the venue four challenging sections sorted out the clubman riders. The most competitive class was the British / Pre 72 with the top three of Peter Edwards, John Hamblin, and Mick Grant all ending the day in single figures. Mick outperformed the other two up there, but lost a few more at the earlier tricky 5th and 9th sections. All Class winner had comfortable victories. Richard Allen would have put the pressure on Roman, but for a couple of early unexpected bike stalls.

 

Luke Staples making his series debut enjoyed his day out to comfortably win the clubman monoshockers, while debutants Jess Bown and Louise Alford had a break from the Ladies British Championship scene to mix it in the Classic Scene. Conratulations to the other class winners , Butch Robson, James Waters and Stephen Bisby
