A great turnout at the Loughborough Trials Clubs hastily rearranged trial last Sunday (4th May) were treated to 10 excellent sections that had a mix of everything expected from a clubman event with loose climbs, twisty tight turns and grip less roots but the results showed its man not machine as "classic" bikes took victory on three out of 4 routes.
On the hard route Yamaha mounted Steve Bird took a clear victory over Jonathan Lee on his (very) bright and shiny Sherco with top youth Matt Dixon in third. Section one set on the roughest piece of ground that could be found (a winter of cattle movement put the "natural challenge" into this section) was the real test for this route while tight turns on section 4 also took marks, particularly as "Spot Everything" Tony Wareing was on the board marking this one!
On the 50/50 route Ian Margetts on his trick T/S Fantic made things look easy while Mick Thurman on his TY for the first time in a while kept him honest. Mark Gregory on his Sherco in third just in front of Tony Jones on another TY must have though he was in a time warp....Mick Bone marked section 3 and with its tight camber turn this did the damage along with section 9 and its tree root climbs being watched over by Phil Bradley.
A fantastic 38 riders had a go at the middle route but another trick T/S Fantic in the capable hands of Olly Wareing took honours although Olly will kick himself for a loss of concentration on the second climb of section 2 that resulted in a 5 and his only loss of the day. At least his mistake put some pressure on as Cambridge Trials Centre proprietor Pete Davies kept it close loosing just 6. Greg Moor took third but again only by cleans over Guy Bradley on another T/S Fantic.
Only on the White route did modern bikes have their way with Michael Smally keeping his feet firmly fixed to the pegs of his shiny new Beta all day while Gas Gas mounted Robert Wright and Alan Jones lost just 3 and 4 respectively. Again a good spread of scores showed perfect route plotting with the experienced guys and gals on low scores and the novice riders a sensible final tally.
A few more queues than normal and a very hard working weekend for the section plotters who had marked out at the previous venue just before it was found not to be available resulting in the rapid relocation down the road to Vickers were the only minor stress points of a brilliant event, that and Richard running out of pre-printed number cards when the "Nene Valley Mafia" turned out on mass following the late cancellation of their own planned event! Thanks for your support guys,

Good turnout Cartmel Fell trial.
