British Trials Cup - Round 4 2016 - Blackpool Moon Rocks
A really good weekend at Blackpool, the help in setting up and running the event was fantastic, so many people helping out - thank you all very very much!

Saturday was beautiful sunshine (probably too hot to do much riding) but on the Sunday, even the rain didn't seem to dampen the riders' spirits and everyone seemed to enjoy the sections and the event in general.  There was a really good atmosphere among the riders and others present which all helped to make a good time, all finished off with the lovely Rebecca to present the awards.

Just one accident during the day for Samuel Meeton in Primary Senior Class who came off his bike leaving a section.  We're pleased to say that, despite a lot of blood, he went on to complete the course in just one dab!  Well done to Andrei Burton in Elite on finishing some hard sections also on just one dab.  Overall scores, some high, some medium and some low showed that we had the sections at a perfect level for you all. Well done to all the riders who competed, and welcome to all the new riders who were competing at their first National competition - we hope to see you again at the final round of the season at Hook Woods on 11th September - we can always guarantee another good time at that venue!

Trials World Cup Round 2, Les Menuires, France
This weekend (8,9 & 10th July) sees the 2nd round of the Trials World Cup being held in the Alpine ski resort of Les Menuires, France. The uk has a big entry for this event with Jack Carthy, Andrei Burton, Dave Kerr and Steve Rogers riding in the 26” class and Sam Oliver and Andy Chai riding the 20” competition. Sam and Andy would have been joined in the 20” by Owen Gawthorpe but a virus is keeping him at home.

Good luck to all of the guys and let us hope for good showings in qualification and for the 2015 World Cup winner Jack Carthy to be topping the podium this time after his unfortunate crash in the first round!

Well done to Jack Carthy - 1st place - and well done to Andrei Burton - 9th place!

Thank you to the Biketrial Federation for supplying the entry's and the permit for this event.

The World Trial GP promises to be a spectacular event at this new venue and is well worth attending on both competition days the 16th and 17th July. Event coordinators, Graham Jarvis and John Kerwin have put a lot of effort in to provide what will be a memorable event.

British Trials Cup - Round 3 2016 - Olde Home Farm, East Yorkshire
Amazing weekend with all thanks to the Ackerley family - it took Simon many hours of work to provide eight great sections, but everyone there really enjoyed the event.  Check out our facebook page for loads of people's photos and video clips.  

Also thanks to the local event sponsors, Marcus Bourne, Peter Winn Tyres, Simon Pilling, D.A.W. Logistics, Wilfred Scruton Ltd, and DRT Trailers, as well as the series sponsors Tartybikes & Trialtech.  The contributions allowed us to provide two 50 vouchers as prizes in a raffle draw for everyone who had pre-entered the event, and to buy a supply of bike parts to use as spot-prizes at this and coming events, as well as to top up the Biketrial Federation funds for the various equipment and running costs.  

The competition, riders, spectators and riding were great, there were some high scores, but there were three people who finished on "0", so well done to Bailey Dacker, Samuel Meeton and Andrei Burton.  There were no major injuries (apart from Reece Seymour's hairline fracture of his fingers, oh, and Darren Ring's pulled hamstring)!  The photos and videos on facebook show how much everyone enjoyed it, do have a look through them!.

The results are now available here.

BIU British BikeTrial Championship 2016 and BIU European Cup Round 1

Beautiful weather at Dudwood in Derbyshire for this event, with some excellent, although challenging, very well set up sections.  It was great to see several old-time riders there as spectators too!

The 39 competitors made their way round the course of 3 laps of 6 sections: with 29 riders competing for the British BIU title and 24 competiting for the BIU European Cup points.  Sad to say that just 6 european riders attended from Slovakia, Catalunya, Italy and Czech - the rest missed out on a great event!

Well done to BIU Delegate, Robin Morewood and to his team of helpers.

Check out the results from the BIU page.

British Trials Cup - Round 2 2016 - Bob Macgregor Trials Park
Another great trial on Sunday 1st May at Bob Macgregor's, a very wet start to the day but the rain stopped shortly after the start leaving the sections a bit muddy for the first lap.  The sunshine helped to dry them up in time for the second lap.  Everyone completed the course of eight sections with not one person retiring which suggests everyone enjoyed it, backed up by the verbal feedback afterwards.  Many thanks to the venue organisers, and to the Clerk of Course and his helpers for such good sections.  We had planned on running another fun speed section at the end of the event, but everyone wanted to get off home - perhaps earlier next time!

The results are now available here

In plenty of time this year, the entry form for the UCI World Cup events and the Youth World Games is now available here, don't miss the deadlines!  For more information click on the UCI logo on the right.  Don't forget to copy our British Team Manager into the entry form so he can keep track of you British riders!  Good luck to all.

All of the venues and dates above for the British Trials Cup series are now confirmed and safe to make your travel arrangements and book any accommodation.  Really looking forward to seeing everyone again this year.

Welcome to trials in 2016, we're busy orgnanising a great year for you both at club and national events - new venues, new ideas.  Many thanks to everyone who completed the survey at the end of 2015, we're still working through it and will do our best to put ideas into place where possible.

We need more help though, after many years doing the sport's promotional work, Ben Swales has now retired to concentrate on being a teacher!  Thank you Ben for all your hard work in the past.  We do need a volunteer to take on this role; coming along to events, taking photos, writing reports from events, managing the facebook and trials-forum pages, getting reports and photos out to the media, and anything else to promote the sport in the UK.  If you fancy a challenge, do please get in touch with us.

Another of Ben's tasks was to contact those who may wish to sponsor the national series - we don't have anyone to do this yet for 2016 - so if anyone reading this considers the sport is worthy of sponsoring, or if you would be happy to take on the task of making contacts, please, do get in touch with us at info@biketrialuk.co.uk.

We've tried to make the website a little easier to navigate, without going through several pages to find what you want.  On the left you have the general information about the sport and about the British clubs, and on the right, you have the international information.  Just click on the link or on the logos to take you to the information.  

We're still working on this so please give us a little more time to get it all refreshed and updated.


Good luck to everyone this year, at the clubs, at the national series, and at the international events.  Let's hope for lots more medals coming back to the UK!
