Nemo Trial Results
Congratulations to Sam Gent on keeping his feet up all day to win the Hard route in the first Loughborough Trial since lockdown and run under the ACU COVID rules. Youth rider Sam Hill had a fine ride to finish runner-up on seven marks.
The Middle route was close with the Steve Kenny winning on two marks, with the next eight riders chasing him closely and all under ten Marks. Pete Jones out for the first time on a 200 Beta regretted going the wrong side of a marker and losing five marks which cost him a win on a Zero score, spotted by brother Gil who was operating the punch-cards.
The White route was won by Dave Cole on his newly-built Yamaha Majesty, with a tied finish for second place between Jim Lawrence and Ian Breakwell, Jim taking the place on the tie-break.
The section-setters laid the event out to ensure flowing sections to aid the group riding required under COVID regulations, thanks to them for setting what was enjoyable trial for all.
Thanks to everyone who took part, especially those riders who volunteered to operate the punch-cards, a first for the Club and the only way that trials can run without observers.
The next trial was scheduled for November, but after due consideration with the current COVID escalation, the club have decided not to run this event, but to look forward to an easing of the situation and possibly running the next trial on 27 December at Riley’s Railway.
