Well almost one route, with a graded 3-2-1 option on about 4 of the trickier sections.
A quick check of the cards revealed some were confused by the graded sections scoring , more on this in the newsletter.
April’s Very Special Trial Experiment
John Charman’s, idea of a one route trial was adopted by the committee and will be set out by Clint for next months event. In favours spoke of the opportunity for riders to try harder routes, the single list final scores at the finish and suggested progressive sections through 4 easy to hard yellows, 4 similar blue 2 whites. Anti-proposal said whites would be bored and yellows would miss out on many sections. However the decision was unanimous for having a go.
Years ago all trials were one route for all bikes 125 cc to 500 cc, the results produced a table of rider ability. A perfect trial and a credit to the Clerks of the Course was Mr. Venables comment on a Greybeards in TMX, and to illustrate this he quoted the results – Cranfield won on 0 – Dick Husband last on 100! If Clint gets a result like that it will be pleasing and who knows, with a special test added, it could become an annual club championship. Whatever you miss out on, don’t miss this event.
So are we turning back the clock, or is this the way forward…
