Received this lovely card and message from Eddy Hibbert who had a BIG fall while watching the Dave Rowland Trial on 3rd July:

To Man17Just a note to say thanks to all of you for looking after me after my fall and for all your good wishes.

I am very grateful but sorry I spoilt the trial.

Hope to see you all in the future.

Eddy Hibbert.

Note from Mr P: No need to apologise Edd you didn't spoil the trial - we are all chuffed you got over it. Tough lot old trials riders.

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


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!
