The above is based on the wheels of combustion engined machines using motorcycle tyres. If other wheels are used as on current Electric powered machines then the outside diameter (total circumference) of the tyre must not exceed that of the corresponding tyre size.

                                Engine Sizes

Rebores are permitted subject to the resulting engine capacity not exceeding a tolerance of +3cc

ILLEGAL PRACTISING

All land belongs to someone and riding on it requires the owners permission - simple

Practising at ANY C&NW Trials venue, with the exception of Hawks Nest & Alvanley Trials Ground (by prior arrangement) is not allowed

If you're caught by the land owner, or if they find there have been riders practising we will lose the use of the venue completely. NO LAND = NO TRIALS!

 

"Pic' of the Day"
Man 17's great friend and Sheffield and Hallamshire Clubs mainstay Andy Atkinson who tragically and unexpectedly died on 26th August - "we'll miss you mate".
