Wulfsport ACU Trial GB heads to Rock & Hop

The title chase reaches a critical point this weekend, especially in the main Trial GB class with just two points separating Jack Peace (Sherco) and Toby Martyn (TRRS).

New to the Championship, Rock & Hop, near Harrogate is the venue for the penultimate round which will take place over the standard three lap, twelve section course. Members of the Ripon Club have been working hard setting out the course over the three parcels of land, locally known as Rock & Hop A, B and C.

However, the Trial is not just about the two riders battling for the GB title. Jack’s brother Dan, Billy Green and Jack Dance will compete over a course which ex British Champion James Dabill has advised the club on.

Iwan Roberts, Harry Hemingway, Harry Turner, George Hemingway, Jamie Galloway, Alfie Lampkin, Dan Thorpe, Emma Bristow and  George Gosden will all be wanting the keep their championship hopes alive in their respective classes.

The Paddock will open at 1pm on Saturday, one hour ahead of the Sections opening for riders to inspect them. The first seven sections are located across the road from the start area and feature rocks, which after the opening zone in the lower area amongst the young trees, move onto the steep banks for numbers two to seven, all within easy walking distance from the start.

Sections eight and nine are located amongst the more established trees to the furthest point from the paddock, before the riders return to the start area for the final three sections which could decide the outcome in all four classes. For spectators who like to keep up with the action, it is possible to visit all twelve sections on the first lap, but when the action speeds up (which it will) on laps two and three, the first seven and the final group in the start area is a good bet.

Trials fans are asked to take extra care when crossing the public road, which will be marshalled.

For spectators who wish to make a weekend of it, the Ripon Club are organising a Youth Superstars Trial on Saturday afternoon on a compact course in the wooded part of the start area.  Weekend spectator admission is £5 for adults with accompanied children free, whilst overnight camping will be charged at £10 per person.
