JPEG - 17.2 kb Following the cancellation of the first round due to heavy snow last month, the Tyke Trial club championship kicked off on Sunday 21st of March at Shipley Glen. Some 60 riders turned up in the morning to be greeted by glorious sunshine and some interesting sections. Among these 60 riders were a lot of new faces, which was wonderful to see! All categories had a healthy number of riders and there was some close competition for the top spots. The only downside at the start of the day was the lack of willing observers, which meant that one of the sections had to be pulled up in order for the trial to go on. This was disappointing for riders and organisers alike and is something that we would like to see change at future rounds!

Elite

Elite category was a closely fought competiton, with just four points separating 13 year old winner Jack Carthy (Onza), who finished with just five points on his card, and runner-up Dave Kerr (9). Steve Rogers took third place with 27. Atomz rider Danny Butler had started the trial but unfortunately retired after his first lap – it would have been interesting to see how youngster Jack Carthy compared to the more seasoned competitor! Jack almost managed the perfect trial, with his five points coming from a surprise fall on section 7, spoiling his otherwise immaculate scorecard.

Expert

Expert category was just as closely fought, with Kyle Livesey finishing with just one dab and second place Chris Rider and third place Paul Wood finishing on 6 points apiece and being separated on most cleans. Danny Brady was unfortunately carted off to hospital after a gust of wind blew over a cliff edge, resulting in a couple of dislocated fingers and a torn ligament in his ankle – get well soon Danny!

Cadet, Intermediate, Novice and Primary

Cadet was very close at the top, with Sam Cahill just beating Sam Ford (24 and 25 respectively) and Jack Chapman close behind on 28. Intermediate was won by Chris Fairbairn (5), followed by John Padley and Jed Hesling (8 & 11). Eight year old Adam Morewood (Tarty Bikes) took the win in novice class, dropping just one point on his first lap and cleaning the rest of the trial! Definitely one to watch for the future! Second and third place went to Craig Patrick (10) and Sam Rolls (11) and Joel Holdsworth took the win in Primary class with 29 points.
