JPEG - 3.1 kb The British National Cup series got off to a very successful start on Sunday 18th of April at the excellent Barrow Farm Trials and Jump Centre in Essex. This is a new venue for the series and is unusual in that all of the sections are entirely man-made, featuring tyres, concrete pipes, logs, metal boxes, balance beams and skips. Six of the eight sections for the first round of the Cup made use of these man-made obstacles, with two more situated in the woods to the back of the venue and comprising muddy banks (which were dusty banks by the end of the day!), logs and, for the Elites, a stagnant pond! The sections had been set by Mick Scrivens and Fred Savage and featured a good mix of technical passages and big moves, with some spectacular gaps and drops to wow the spectators. Onza Bikes, official sponsors of the Cup, were there with an exhibition stand showing off their 2010 range. Look out for a short article on that in the next few days. Now, onto the competition...

Elite

PNG - 374.4 kb The Elite competition provided some thrilling scenes, as riders negotiated technical passages, gaping chasms and giant drops on their way through the sections. In 26”, Ben Slinger (Atomz) and Ben Savage (Rockman) were both on 0 after their first lap. It would take something special (or a mistake from one of them) to separate these two seasoned competitors. In the end it was Ban Savage who put a foot down, relegating him to second place after Ben Slinger finished with a perfect score of 0. Andrei Burton (Onza) completed the podium with seven points on his card. In Elite 20” Sam Oliver (Rockman) took the win with just nine dabs, followed by Joe Seddon (Onza) on 31 and Tom Rankin (Tarty Bikes) completed the podium with 31 points.

Ben Savage was riding his new 24” Rockman Traktor and there was some debate as to what this would mean for the World Championship qualifications, as 24”s are currently not UCI legal. Will the qualification points go to fourth place Atomz rider Danny Butler?

In Elite 20” Sam Oliver (Rockman) took the win with just nine dabs, followed by Joe Seddon (Onza) on 13 and Tom Rankin (Tarty Bikes) completed the podium with 31 points.

Expert

Expert 26” saw Czech rider Jan Musil take the win with 5 points on his card. This meant that championship points would go to second, third and fourth placed riders. These were Kyle Livesy (26), Jamie Pedrosa (33) and Darren King (41). Jan won by quite a margin! The 20” competition was won by Stephen Thompson on 13, followed by Ryan Trickett on 16. There was a tie for third place, with Ryan Crisp and James Butcher (both on 18) unable to be separated on points, cleans or time! This means that they both get the championship points for third place, which could make for some interesting battles between the two in future rounds!

Novice

Eight year old Adam Morewood (Tarty Bikes), who we have been hearing a lot about recently, finished in first place in Novice after dropping just two dabs. He was followed by the Rolls brothers, Charlie and Sam in second and third place respectively on 5 and 23. These young lads are getting better and better, we’ll be following their progress with great interest!
