12 June 2022 - Another Sunny day at Rileys Railway

The latest Loughborough trial at Rileys Railway was blessed with a fine and sunny day and 55 riders turned out for an enjoyable day.  The club are grateful for a full turn-out of ten observers which always makes the trial run more smoothly.

On the Red route Joe Collins had an excellent ride with a clear win with Tim Johnson in second place and Sam Hill in third place, these two only separated by three marks.

Green route winner, the evergreen Mick Thurman, was no doubt fuelled by Ann’s cakes and encouraged along by Dougie!

Pete Jones on the Yellow route managed with just the two dabs all day, shading Martin Riley, riding on the family farm by four marks.

The Blue route was very close with Mark Richards just beating Simon Hood by one mark, with Ian Breakwell only just behind them.

White route riders John Lawrence and Jim Lawrence who were riding around together and looking after John’s grandson Isaac, were tied together all day with John winning and beating Jim by just two marks.

The Club do not have a trial in July with our next event the two-day Susan Harris Charity Trial on Saturday 13 August, start at 4:00 pm with four laps of eight sections at Vickers Farm and on Sunday 14 August at the usual 10:30am start with the long lap of fifteen sections ridden three times at Vickers and Rileys – a good chance to clear out those clogged silencers from short lap trials.  Both events start at Vickers and we will be holding a raffle, donations of prizes always welcome. As always we will be having cakes from Ann Thurman, make sure you get some of these wonderful cakes and a bonus they help you keep your feet up!

Last year’s one-day event raised £1850 for Melanoma Focus, with this year’s charity being Macmillan Cancer.

There should be a Burger van available both days and overnight camping is possible at Vickers.

We would like hear from any section sponsors and observers, please contact Gary or Howard.

Entries for both days will open 11 July, so please put that date in your diary.  We will put a reminder on the website and Facebook nearer the date.
