Ilkley Trial

For the second time I took part in the Ilkely Classic Trial this sunday. As usual it was very well run, with sections on private land. The weather started fine but after lunch it started to rain. As the previous week had been very wet a few sections were cancalled. Of those that remained a few were dry but most were wet and slippery.

An easy section - there were loops in and out of the trees to add a sting though
My final result was 12 out of a class of 16. The winner cleared all sections on his new Alp 200. Before lunch I was doing well and was placed 9th but after lunch I scored a few '10's where others did better. Near Pately Bridge there is an inlcine which as number 1 I was due to be first up. I picked a line and it was the wrong one. The left of the track was muddy, the right fine - I should have cleared it!

The Alp did fine and took me home, but not as far as the winner had to go - he headed off on a 150 mile trip!
