After the foundation of the club back in 1987, it was a natural progression after scrambles to run classic trials as well.  Since then our trials have been well supported and on average eight trials a year are held. Entries average 50/60 riders. This year we will have three routes including a new Gentlemans route so that all rider / machine abilities are catered for.

Hi everyone,

Everything is in place for our trial on Sunday. 

Roger and Steve will be marking the sections and the caterer will be on site (she says that she will not miss the entrance this year!). 

As some may already know, Derek Rouart has volunteered to take over as trials co-ordinator, this was agreed at last week's AGM. Derek has been a long-time member of the club and has been involved on the scrambles side so some of you may know him. Having recently retired and moved closer to Bath, he would like to put something back into the club. I would like to thank Derek for this and look forward to helping him ease into the role. 

Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday, Dave
