Round 5 – The Ben Carlile Trophy – Brimham Rocks - 10th & 11th July 2010

JPEG - 17.2 kb The annual Tyke Trial two-day trial at Brimham took place on the 10th and 11th July this year. After the cancellation of one of the days last year it was great to see a high turnout for the weekend in 2010! The event is organised each year to remember Ben Carlile, a young club member who very sadly passed away. A dedicated and enthusiastic rider, Ben is missed by all and the weekend is a great way to remember him. Following the tragic death of Gavin Bedford this year, the event was extended and is now held in memory of all club members who are no longer with us.

Day 1

JPEG - 713.9 kb The first day of the weekend is traditionally given over to a fun day, with various events and competitions, including a treasure hunt, fancy dress competition, high-jump contest and speed trial, being held throughout the day, followed by a BBQ and bonfire into the night. The competition proper then takes place on day two. Tribal Rider Jack Carthy blew everyone away by cleaning the speed trials section in just 17 seconds – bunnyhopping over most of the section in one go! The events were followed by the presentation of the 2009 Championship awards. In Elite 26” Andy Ford finished first overall, followed by Joe Oakley and Andrew Walker in second and third respectively. Elite 20” saw Karl Donnelly take the top spot, with Jack Carthy and Tom Astbury completing the podium. Paul Wood took the win in Expert 26” after an excellent season. The podium was completed by Dave Finney and Matthew Rushton. Alec Wray finished first overall in Expert 20” and Keiran Donnelly and Stephen Thompson finished in second and third. Matthew Holdsworth topped the podium in Cadet 26”, followed by Tribal Rider Ben Swales in second and Club Chairman Neil Raven in third. JPEG - 690.5 kb Tribal Rider Jamie Bew was the winner in Cadet 20”, ahead of James Bancroft and Lee Schofield. Intermediate saw Tom Hooper, Sam Ford and Bradley Stead in first, second and third respectively, with TJ Reynoldson, Andrew Dorrit and Adli Rowland taking the top spots in Novice and Adam Heenan, Connor Parker and Elliot Raven in Primary. The observer of the year award was presented to Karen Carthy, who had not only observed at every round of the season but also contributes so much to the running of the club and the competitions. After the awards had been given out, one last award remained to be presented: the Ben Carlile Memorial Trophy. This annual award is presented to the club member who has contributed the most to the club throughout the year through their attendance, image, input and general attitude and is presented by Ben’s dad Kevin. This year it went to a very deserving Jamie Bew – congratulations Jamie!

Day 2

On Sunday the fifth round of the 2010 Club Championship took place on the excellent sections that had been set out during the previous day. Fortunately the weather was a bit cooler than the previous day, so riders didn’t have quite such a tough time of it.

Elite

In Elite Jack Carthy and Dave Kerr had to be separated on most cleans after they both finished on 4 points, with Jack taking the top spot. James Hyland finished in third on 17.

Many thanks also to founding members Karen Luscombe and Heather Jagger for joining us on the Saturday to present the TykeTrial annual awards for 2009, it was really good to see them and to remember that there would never have been a TykeTrial Club if they hadn’t started it up back in 1997. Thanks also to Kevin and Samantha Carlile for coming along to present the Ben Carlile Memorial Trophy in memory of their young son and other riders who have passed away.

Round 6 – Cockhill Leadmines – 5th September 2010

The sixth round of the Tyke Trial club championship took place on Sunday 5th September at Cockhill Lead Mines near Pately Bridge. Despite the clouds and chilly wind, the weather remained dry for the duration of the competition. Three of the eight sections had been set in the stream that runs through the venue making for some exciting moments as riders were faced with either clearing an obstacle or spending the rest of the day with wet feet! The rest of the sections were spread out over the venue, with a long walk up the hill to sections four, five and six. The lack of big obstacles meant that the organisers had set some very tough, technical sections in order to keep the level of difficulty up.

Elite

Elite class saw UCI Minime World Champion Jack Carthy finish on just one point(!) to take the win ahead of Andy Ford on 14 and Alec Wray on 17. Michael Singleton (4th) deserves a mention as he rode the competition with full commitment, either cleaning or fiving every section!

Round 7 – Lee Mill Quarry – 3rd October 2010

Round 7 took place on Sunday 3rd October at Lee Mill Quarry, near Bacup. This is the only purpose-built venue on the Tykes calendar and riders had been looking forward to this round for a long time and spirits were high in the days leading up to the event. The weather had other ideas however, and the entrants were greeted with the worst rain that we’ve had all year! The ground soon turned to mud, the sections were slippery from the off, with one section being pulled up after being deemed too dangerous and the start gate of another having to be moved when the pond flooded and covered it completely! The turnout was still high however, although some of the less dedicated riders decided that it wasn’t for them and went home to dry off, and it turned out to be a challenging an enjoyable trial!

Elite

Despite the weather and the treacherous conditions, Tribal Rider Jack Carthy still managed to get round the two laps of seven sections with only three points on his card to take a spectacular win! He was followed by Dave Kerr who managed to finish on 11 (no mean feat when you consider that he spent a good three hours fixing, bleeding and cursing his rear brake!) and Rob Poyser on 17.

Expert

Alec Wray moved down form Elite class after checking out the sodden sections and ended up taking the win in expert on eight points. Jamie Bew finished in second place on 16. The rest of the Expert riders either didn’t show or went home with their (wet) tails between their legs, so no third place this time!

Harry Francis and Aden Firth-Corner both managed the perfect trial, coming in clean (their score cards at least, everyone was filthy and soaking by the end of the day!), with Harry just taking the lead on time. Jordan Seymour completed the top three with just one dab – a veryclose competition indeed!
