British Trials Cup - Round 4 2016 - Blackpool, Lancashire
A really good weekend at Blackpool, the help in setting up and running the event was fantastic, so many people helping out - thank you all very very much!

Saturday was beautiful sunshine (probably too hot to do much riding) but on the Sunday, even the rain didn't seem to dampen the riders' spirits and everyone seemed to enjoy the sections and the event in general.  There was a really good atmosphere among the riders and others present which all helped to make a good time, all finished off with the lovely Rebecca to present the awards.

Just one accident during the day for Samuel Meeton in Primary Senior Class who came off his bike leaving a section.  We're pleased to say that, despite a lot of blood, he went on to complete the course in just one dab!  Well done to Andrei Burton in Elite on finishing some hard sections also on just one dab.  Overall scores, some high, some medium and some low showed that we had the sections at a perfect level for you all. Well done to all the riders who competed, and welcome to all the new riders who were competing at their first National competition - we hope to see you again at the final round of the season at Hook Woods on 11th September - we can always guarantee another good time at that venue!

British Trials Cup - Round 3 2016 - Olde Home Farm, East Yorkshire
Amazing weekend with all thanks to the Ackerley family - it took Simon many hours of work to provide eight great sections, but everyone there really enjoyed the event.  Check out our facebook page for loads of people's photos and video clips.  

Also thanks to the local event sponsors, Marcus Bourne, Peter Winn Tyres, Simon Pilling, D.A.W. Logistics, Wilfred Scruton Ltd, and DRT Trailers, as well as the series sponsors Tartybikes & Trialtech.  The contributions allowed us to provide two 50 vouchers as prizes in a raffle draw for everyone who had pre-entered the event, and to buy a supply of bike parts to use as spot-prizes at this and coming events, as well as to top up the Biketrial Federation funds for the various equipment and running costs.  

The competition, riders, spectators and riding were great, there were some high scores, but there were three people who finished on "0", so well done to Bailey Dacker, Samuel Meeton and Andrei Burton.  There were no major injuries (apart from Reece Seymour's hairline fracture of his fingers, oh, and Darren Ring's pulled hamstring)!  The photos and videos on facebook show how much everyone enjoyed it, do have a look through them!.

The results are now available here.

British Trials Cup - Round 2 2016 - Bob Macgregor Trials Park
Another great trial on Sunday 1st May at Bob Macgregor's, a very wet start to the day but the rain stopped shortly after the start leaving the sections a bit muddy for the first lap.  The sunshine helped to dry them up in time for the second lap.  Everyone completed the course of eight sections with not one person retiring which suggests everyone enjoyed it, backed up by the verbal feedback afterwards.  Many thanks to the venue organisers, and to the Clerk of Course and his helpers for such good sections.  We had planned on running another fun speed section at the end of the event, but everyone wanted to get off home - perhaps earlier next time!

British National Cycle Trials Cup.2016

Round 1   -   Seymours Arena, Oxfordshire 10th April

British National Cycle Trials – Round 1 commenced at Seymours Arena, Oxfordshire which hosts the famous North Berks Bonanza.

The 8 sections were marked out and taped the day before but persistent rain / wind overnight caused markers to be dislodged and numbers on gates disappeared, but by the start time all was in order as the sun came out and stayed out for the whole of the event. The wind however was still around and made some riders drop a 5 when they were on the high rocks. Two minutes were allowed to clear a section which did cause a little heartache, but as riders settled in their time came down.

Section 1 – With a start gate on the hillside then to drop down into the gulley of rocks and make their way upwards, speed was essential for the Expert and upwards. This then led on to a water jump and the only way to do this was from a small ledge, and turning on the back wheel and just to go for it, too long thinking about it and you would be out of time. In the Expert senior group Ryan Crisp (B1K3) and Will Ackerley (Crewkerz) who has recently moved up to this class were neck and neck on 7 points after the first lap. A single dab on lap 2 when Will had previously cleaned this section, followed by a 5 on the windy section 2 meant he finished 1 point adrift from Ryan Crisp coached by Darryl Smith. Andrew Chai (GU) rode well taking the bronze medal, and Tom Astbury (Bionic) missing the podium but a good 2nd lap by him. Adam Birchmoore (Monty 221pr) in the novice senior group was happy taking his first win in the British Nationals after a second lap of just 9. There were four riders very close in his group after their first lap, Carl Weightman (Neon) held the second place holding off Joe Gatrill (Zoo) who continues to get better the more he rides.

The primary senior group which is a new class that was introduced this year to encourage new riders to the sport saw 10 year old Samuel Meeton (Monty) having a second lap of just 1 mark lost on section 6, a Gold for him. Oscar Jones (Onza) took the silver and Jake Green 3rd place, both 17 marks lost on their last lap. Local rider Nate Robinson just 2 marks off the podium, and Elliott Cooper (Hashtag) another 3 adrift. Nine year old Bailey Dacker (Onnit) took the primary class win with 10 marks lost on the day.

Elite class, which had a good entry had Andrei Burton (Echo) top of the podium on just 9 marks lost, 5 marks were lost on section 7. Dave Kerr (Crewkerz) was runner up, with Sam Oliver taking the bronze medal.

 Section 9, which took place just before the medal presentation, was a speed obstacle race against the clock, with 2 routes just for fun though with a few fallers but all with smiles and egging each other on. Eventual winner on section 9 the hard route was Charlie Rolls with a time of 25.76 seconds. The easier route was won by Joe Gatrill timed at 13.20.

 Many thanks to North Berks MCC and all concerned in staging this event Especially Stuart Robinson.  Thank you to main sponsors Tarty Bikes and Trial Tech. The awards were presented by Biketrial Federation Chairman, George Eyre and Administrator Barbara Wright.

A brilliant day with plenty of good feedback.  Round 2 of the 5 rounds will be staged at Bob McGregor Trials Park, near Glasgow on 1st May 2016.

What is the Biketrial Federation all about?
 How do you get involved?

The aims of the Biketrial Federation in running these events are: The purposes of the events are for you:
  • to enjoy
  • to be fair
  • to encourage
  • to promote
  • to discard petty rules
  • to minimise red tape
  • to compete with like-minded people
  • to keep fit
  • to make friends
  • to test your skills
  • to find Britain's best in each age group

Having said all that, we do of course have to have rules, selection policies, and of course all the official stuff such as insurances and official paperwork.  (To check all this stuff out, see further down the page.)

ENTERING AN EVENT
We're sorry, but you do need to send in an entry form, and if you're under 18 then an adult has to sign for you.  And we're even more sorry, but you do need to pay an entry fee to pay towards things like the use of the land, the insurance, the toilets, the equipment that's needed, and of course towards the medals and trophies!  The entry form and the payment need to be with us as soon as possible and before the closing date ... we need to know how many of you to prepare for!  If you have to cancel for any reason, just give the Secretary a call within 24 hours of the competition and you'll get a full refund.  For those of you who don't send your entry form and payment before the closing date - of course you can still come along but you will be charged an extra 5 late entry fee - best to do it early and save some cash!

TURNING UP ON THE DAY
Try to get there in good time, and please park sensibly.  As soon as you arrive you must come to the control tent and sign on - your insurance does not start until that's done.  You'll be given your punchcard then your time is your own to have a look around the sections and check out the route before the pre-trial briefing starts - and make sure you come and listen to it, there may be some special information that you need to know specifically about this event.

Then off you go and ride your bike, meet new people and have a great day.  There's usually 2 or 3 laps of the sections so you'll need to change your punchcard at control between laps.

ALL FINISHED?
As soon as all your sections are finished, bring your last punchcard straight back to control as they're allways timed at these national events - it might make a difference to your finishing position in the results if someone else is on the same score!  As soon as we have that last punchcard from you your scores will be counted and put onto the results board.  When we've got everyone's back, then there'll be a presentation of the medals for the top 3 riders in each class - do stay and give everyone a cheer!  A couple of days afterwards, the results will have been double-checked and will be posted on this page for everyone to see.  We're setting up some #pages so that everyone can post their facebook pictures with that link so there should also be some great photos of the day for you to see - and don't forget to add your photos to it so other people can see yours!

AT THE END OF THE YEAR - THE BRITISH TRIALS CHAMPIONSHIP
On the results for each individual event, you'll see a column for "Champ Points".  These are given according to the results in each class for each event.  To earn championship points you must either hold a British passport or have lived in the UK for at least six months (not just on a holiday).  We don't check this out - we take it on trust so no need to bring the passport with you!  The points are decided on:
1st = 20 points 2nd = 17 points 3rd = 15 points 4th = 13 points 5th = 11 points
6th = 10 points 7th = 9 points 8th = 8 points 9th = 7 points 10th = 6 points
11th = 5 points 12th = 4 points 13th = 3 points 14th = 2 points 15th = 1 point

If two riders finish an event on exactly the same score, then the decisions are made on (a) most '1s' (b) most '2s' (c) most '3's (d) most '4's.  If this doesn't sort out the better result, then, as far as medals on the day, positions are given on the fastest time to complete the course; but championship points are added together and shared equally.  Complicated? Don't worry, we'll sort it all out!

The end of year championship trophies are awarded to the three riders with the most points added together over the season; based on each rider's best 4 results out of the 5 events. This is so that no-one is penalised for having an "off" day, or couldn't come along because of say exams, or simply just too far to travel for that event.  You don't have to enter all the events, even if you only make it to one or two - you'll still get your points and a championship position.

DON'T TAKE IT TOO SERIOUSLY!
Whilst there are some who can get to every event it can be competitive for them - but we want everyone to enjoy their days.  If you get a '5', tough, it's a learning experience, just try again on the next lap, there's no need to get stressed about it, there'll definitely be other people getting '5s' aswell, you're not the only one!

We want you to have a great time, enjoy riding your bike, learning new skills and meeting new people.

The rules for 2016 will have some slight changes after the Annual Meeting of Organisers at the end of 2015 - but very little, we're still sorting them out.  The 2015 rules can be viewed below - but don't forget to read them again before starting your first competition of the year to check out for any changes!

You'll notice in the rules that the lower classes, Primary, Novice, Intermediate and Cadet are NOT given points for their bike touching the section (except handlebars), so they can use a pedal or bashplate to help them get up obstacles.  However, once achieving the Expert and Elite classes, we expect you to to have achieved the ability to get up the obstacles without needing that extra help; so the Expert and Elite riders do get scored every time the bike touches the section (except tyres of course!).

So, if you're new to trials, which class do you enter?  Have a look through the Competition Guide video, take a guess on which class could be best for you and enter into that class.  Once you've started, if within the first three sections you find that you're in the wrong class, then come back to control and we can move you up or down a class - that's not a problem, we want you to enjoy the ride.
