Thames MCC Motorcycle Trial at Frensham Vale, Nr Farnham. 31-01-10

2010-01-31 Thames MCC-9807, originally uploaded by Shutes Images.

A great trial at Frensham Vale, Farnham, Surrey last Sunday. When I say great, great if you like mud, mud and more mud (oh and a load of 5’s to go with it!).

This was the second round of the Thames MCC club champs, I have only joined Thames this year and it seems like a great club, friendly people, well organised and with club champs to boot –  which is great to add a bit of real ‘sport’ – the trophies looked nice too, although i doubt i’ll get one of those (this year!! – my time will come!!)

I recruited 2 new members for the club, James Finn and Matt Wright who both had thier first adult trials outings on newly acquired Gassers. James is a former Super-Moto rider and Matt used to ride for the South of England as a schoolboy. Both went straight in on the red route and fared well – James had to retire with a knackered clutch just as he was getting his confidence up, which was a shame but he will be back! Mat (king of the bounce grip) showed he still had his old skills, we both started with cleans at section 1, (if only that had been how it continued!!) – i think we were pretty close in the end, but i reckon he got be by a couple of 3’s

Heres to the next (a bit drier) one.

Feet up!!
