2016 BIU EUROPEAN CUP AND THE 2016 BIU BRITISH BIKETRIAL CHAMPIONSHIP AT DUDWOOD, DERBYSHIRE
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!
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 the organiser, BIU Delegate Robin Morewood and to his team of helpers.RESULTS

ACU Trials licence at a cost of £10 per year. This will cover riders for all
international BIU events in 2016. https://www.acu.org.uk/RidersMembers/License-Forms.aspx
Secondly, you must contact the Delegate to apply to
enter any BIU event, application will only be accepted from each
