European Union Cycling - 22nd to 26th July 2015

"'The UEC Mountain bike and trials European Championships are taking place in Chies D'Alpago in the Northern Italian Dolomites over the next week with Jack Carthy (Elite 26), Dave Kerr (Elite 20) and Aaron Duke (Junior 20) flying the flag for the UK. The competition is great preparation for the forthcoming World Championships in Andorra and the bulk of the competitors in Italy will also be in Andorra in six weeks time. Aaron has his qualifying on the 23rd July and Jack and Dave ride their qualifying heats on the 24th. Good luck to all three- it would be a brave man who would bet against another Carthy championship win in the finals on Saturday the 25th!"

Well, it's all over now and true to form

Congratulations to UCI European Champion JACK CARTHY!

To quote a spectator: "It was great to hear the national anthem ring out amongst the mountains for Britain."

Well done also to Dave finishing in 11th place, and to Aaron who unfortunately had to retire due to an injury - get well soon.

 
European Cup round 3 Sonico - Italy - 5th July 2015

The final round of the European Cup was held in Sonico, northern Italy on the 5th July. It was a superb event with excellent organisation. The trial itself was held on a 2km steep hillside course with the majority in the shade from the 35 degree heat. The sections were tough but the UK riders coped well.

Josh McParland won the Poussin class on 11 marks and with it took the European Cup title which is his first ever international title. In the Benjamon class Sam Shepherd took a very close 3rd place and finished 3rd overall. Adam Morewood made it 3 from 3 by winning the Minime class and with it his 3rd European Cup title.

All three riders will be competing for Biketrial UK at the upcoming World Championships in just over a weeks time.

 
British BIU BikeTrial Championship 2015 - 21st June 2015

The first British BIU BikeTrial Championship competition in the UK for many years took place this summer at Bracken Rocks in Derbyshire. A little different to the British Trials Cup/Championship series, it was run to BIU classes and BIU observing rules, with a couple of Non Championship Classes for riders to have a go out of class.

It was an excellent day with eight really good sections set out for all classes. Nearly everyone rode in their age-group class and this seemed to work well for most, with just a couple of riders out of class.

Well done to Robin and his team of helpers, thank you to all.

European Cup round 2 Rudina - Slovakia - 6th June 2015
The UK had a small but high quality group of riders at the 2nd round of the European Cup in Rudina, North East Slovakia. It was a compact 7 section course held in 30 degree heat. They all rode great with Josh McParland finishing 2nd in poussin to maintain his championship lead. In the Benjamin category Sam Shepherd had a storming 1st lap but suffered a little in the heat to finish in 4th place. Adam Morewood continued his fine form to take a comfortable win in the Minime category to hold the championship lead with the final round 4 weeks away in Italy.

GENERAL NEWS ...
New Medals for 2015

Many thanks to our new series sponsor for 2015 for having these medals made up for our winners - just 10 of each of this first batch made for the first round at Hook Woods.

The only way to get hold of one of these is to enter and get in the top three!

Get your entry off NOW !!!


2015 Rule Changes - Final rules have been added to the site - check them out here

Needless to say, it's taken a while to get all the rules sorted out this year, and then we discovered at the last minute that UCI have changed their's to give riders only 2 minutes in each section instead of 2½ minutes. This fits in with us nicely, particularly now as we're assisting with the BIU in the UK and their rule is 2 minutes. So, with immediate effect, riders at our UK events will have 2 minutes per section.

In addition, there is a change in the classification of what parts of the bike must go through all markers - this now states "the entire bike" instead of specifying parts.

And finally, the classes have had a little change, nothing drastic but with very low entries in the MTB class that has now been discontinued, and with the coming of a separate BIU event, the traditional BIU Elite class has been removed from the Cup series, leaving just one Elite class (formerly World Elite). Also there are a couple of age classifications added.

. Primary (10 and under) White Intermediate Senior (26+) Blue
  Novice (14 and under) Green Cadet (under 18) Red
  Novice Senior (15+) Green Expert Red (UCI style)
  Intermediate (25 and under) Blue Elite Yellow (UCI style)

Hope the changes aren't too complicated for you this year! A full list will be on the Rules page of the website in the next few days.


British BIU News

Congratulations to Robin Morewood becoming the BIU Delegate for the UK.

Robin's task will involve many issues relating to the BIU, International and European, such as issuing licences, advertising BIU events both at home and abroad, and monitoring the British Team entries to international events, as well as running BIU British BikeTrial Championship events with the full support and co-operation of the Biketrial Federation.

Check out the NEW BIU web page for Robin's news updates and information.

BIU Licence Application form now available from BIU page.


Club dates are out ...
Check the "Events" page for the calendar to date. Both TykeTrial and Crowthorne Cycle Trials Club have set their dates for the coming season, as well as the dates for the National series. Scottish Biketrial Club have now been added, the calendar's getting full!

New venue for British Cup Series
We can now confirm the great new venue for Round 2 of the Series on 10th May at Seymours Arena in Oxfordshire. Used for many years as the venue for the motorbike trials Supertrial and to be held there again later this year. Google "supertrial" to check out their videos, photos etc. More information later.

Confusion to start 2015!!!

We had an excellent meeting for the Annual Meeting on 30th November, all the dates were firmly set to fit around the international events. Unfortunately, we have now heard that the EBU/BIU have changed all of the provisional dates they gave us! We're now trying to fit new dates and venues into the new international schedule. We usually have the British dates set by now but apologies for the delay, we're working on it!

Lot's of other changes to the website should be with you soon, as well as the new calendar - but in the meantime, don't book travel or accommodation based on the provisional dates of the calendar!


2014 Series - Final close
