Successful Baa 2 Day Trial

Updated: Aug 27, 2020

This weekend has seen the successful completion of our modern 2 day trial at Edmondbyers

Saturday kicked off at 12 noon with groups of 6 riders heading to sections 1 and 6 at 10 minute intervals. The weather was surprisingly kind to us all afternoon. The sections, in a river and up gullies, were good, taking marks off everyone.

Sunday kicked off at 10 am and the weather started off well for us. The 11 mile lap had a good mixture of river, rock and gully sections. The new route through the gap in the stone wall and under the bridge worked well and took the riders to a super ride out to the rest of the course.

Unfortunately, as some were starting their second lap, the heavens opened and we had a downpour but it didn't stop anyone. The sun returned for the end of a successful weekend.

Our class winners were:

Expert: John Crinson

Clubman: Eddie Aitkin

Easy: Eric McMeekin

Thank you very much to landowners, caterers, organisers, observers and riders!
