The Leven Valley 2 Day Trial 29 - 30 September 2018
A wonderful Weekend
Our inaugural event, The Leven Valley 2 Day Trial, took place over the weekend of 29th and 30th September 2018 and we had a full entry list of 192 riders. With some retiring before the event due to ill health or mechanical issues with their bikes, on the day we had 174 starting riders.
All the riders were sent on their way by the wonderful Sammy Miller. It was a huge honour for us to have him with us for the weekend and to present the trophies, and in particular the winners trophy, which he himself very kindly donated, won by John Charlton, the only rider to complete the weekend with all clears! Thanks to Sammy and congratulations to John and to all our riders.
John Moffat of Trials Guru has written a wonderful report about the weekend which can read here. John has been a staunch supporter and sponsor of the club as well and he kicked off our weekend as Rider 1! It's a great article, and he sums up our 2 Day Trial as being 'Top of the pops'! Thanks John!

We are also most grateful to two excellent photographer for their wonderful photographs from the weekend.

John has written to tell us that any rider wanting a free issue electronic picture in JPG format for private use only, then these can be provided by e-mailing your riding number to firstname.lastname@example.org. If they have a photo of you they are more than happy to provide this service free of charge. Thanks John - that's very generous.
