The Travers Trophy Trial will provide the climax to the 2017 ACU S3 Trials Championship on Sunday 24th September. Sherco rider Luke Walker has led the series from the start with three wins and two second places from the 5 rounds held so far. Former S3 series winner James Fry is the only rider who can challenge Luke for the title and fellow former winner Chris Pearson is safe in third place. The natural setting of the Travers Trial will be a fitting finale to the series.
The newly initiated Clubman class has proved a great success numbers wise with big entries of riders out to enjoy a day on their bike right through to more mature pilots who had found the over 40 class a little too challenging on the previous harder route. Unfortunately most riders have only done their local round and hopefully they might travel further afield in years to come.
Clubman legend Darren Wasley has sewn up the series with more than double the points of second placed John Cowley who is 5 points clear of downhill mountain bike star Sam Atherton.
With something for everyone the S3 series goes from strength to strength with thanks to all event organisers and support from John Shirt we look forward to a bright future
