Moors the merrier!

North Berks MCC had their first round of the 2019 club championship at the Moors, East Hagbourne. The annual Boxing Day Hangover Cup Trial had a good entry of 57 riders tackling four laps of eight sections in the cold but fresh winters morning.

Will McBain took the win on the expert route with Tom Nicholas close behind and Tom Plant, Joe Nicholas and young upcoming Alicia Robinson rounding off the top five.

The club saw a wealthy entry of 13 expert riders all tackling the challenging sections. Local Didcot lad, Lee Sullivan, took the win on the 50/50 route from Joe Bayliss and Will Fidler.

Clubman B was won by Ryan Tomkins with Mark Elms chasing all the way, and Richard Hawthorne, Kieran Tame and John Hawthorne finishing in the top five.

Brian Tomkins stole the win in Clubman C from Neil Harris with Dereck Dodd making a comeback merely missing out on second place from making a rookie mistake, going the wrong side of a marker.

Young Max Agar tackled the Youth 50/50 route, while Brett Harbud stormed ahead in Youth A taking the win from William Clark.

George Clark moved up to Youth B to tackle the harder sections, and Youth C saw Ben Nicholls take the win from young and upcoming Harry Wheeler who has moved up from Youth D.

Little Jonathan Brett won the Youth D class with Riley Middlehurst just behind, along with Ace Allinson.

A massive thank you to all the observers, people involved in marking out sections and a special thank you to the land owners. North Berks MCC have pulled off another fantastic Boxing Day trial yet again.

Christmas Dinner & Awards Night

This years Christmas bash was held at Frilford Heath Golf Club. A good number of members joined us for a brilliant evening celebrating the successes and recognising the achievements of our members who have joined us at club events this year. 2018 has been another great championship with all six rounds being well supported.

We were treated to a tasty three course Christmas meal which was followed by the presentation of the awards to all rider classes and a few extras as usual. Yet again, the evening was a great success and everyone enjoyed spending time and catching up with their trials friends.

Thank you to Frilford Heath Golf Club and their staff for laying on a great spread. Thanks also to the committee members who organise the Club events, you do an amazing job year after year.

Round 6 – Brolly definitely required!

We returned to the steep climbs and sandy banks of the popular Besselsleigh venue for round 6 of the club championship.

The majority of the sections were marked out the previous day in glorious sunshine, but as the morning broke on Sunday the weather had made a turn for the worst. The rain continued for most of the day which made some of the drops into sections 7, 8 and 9 rather treacherous although they had been eased on the morning by the marking out crew. The weather certainly impacted on the entry with a total of just 25 riders braving the awful conditions.

Yet again Tom Nicholas took the win in the expert class for the loss of just 18 marks in the tough conditions which was a way ahead of Oliver Smith on 42 and James Grist on 67. Darren Wheeler took a creditable 4th having not ridden for a year or so, Darren has been concentrating on his Triathlon events, so is superfit at the moment. Looking a little rusty on the first lap but back to his old self thereafter looking confident on bike.

Liam Anderson took the glory on the 50/50 Clubman route on 87 despite snapping his gear lever and having to drop the gearbox to 2nd on most sections with a pair of pliers before entering the begins cards, inspired! The Belcher household will be quiet this evening as Finley and his Dad Stuart ended on exactly the same marks – 93, but Fin taking the win on number of cleans, 3 to 2. Unlucky Stu, he did have the advantage of being on your bike though eh?! Luke Hora came forth, first time out on his Mont, Luke is used to a 2 stroke machine but by the end of the day he was looking good on the thumper.

There were just two riders on the Clubman B route, Ryan Tomkins taking top spot on 88, Patrick Middlehurst second for the loss of 103.

Ryan's Dad Brian Tomkins took the win in the Clubman C class dropping 66, Neil Harris on 89 and Tom Nicholls on 99.

Jonathan Evans was on his own in Clubman D class and dropped 25 dabs.

Youth A was won by Brett Harbud dropping 35 marks on the top route, Alicia Robinson on  81 and Joe Snelling on 94.

Jazz Hammond was on her own in the Youth 50/50 class and completed the four laps for the loss of 103 marks.

Bailey Tidbury was the only entrant on the Youth B route and dropped 93 marks.

As usual we are indebted to the observers who stood out in the atrocious weather: Mark Anderson; Barry Wheeler; Todd Jones; Sue O'Sullivan; Dereck Fowler;  Krysti Anderson; Dickie Harbud; Mick Bayliss; Jimmy Axford; Andy Hora and Sarah Anderson.

We hope you all enjoyed it despite the weather. The next club event is the North Berks Annual Dinner and Awards night at Frilford Heath Golf Club on the 30th November, we hope you will all join us for a great evening with friends.

The 2019 Championship gets underway as usual on Boxing Day, again we hope to see you all there with your shiny kit to burn off the Christmas excesses.
