Top talent take on Lakeland Trial
The premier trial in the Northern Centre calendar takes place on Sunday, May 29 when the Westmorland Club host the third round of Trial GB , The Lakeland Trial – the main British Championship series at Haveriggholme near Torver thanks to the generosity of the Barrow Club and landowner Norman Cooper who have welcomed Westmorland to their land.
The trial entry stands at 57 riders in the four classes, Trial GB, Trial 2, Trial 125 and Trial Expert with the 3 laps of 12 sections featuring suitable variations for the different classes. A comprehensive programme will be available with an admission charge (insisted upon by the ACU) of just £5 per person to include the programme
Clerk of the course is Antony Brockbank who has been plotting the hazards all week and his reputation for setting out trials of this calibre is second to none, so expect a great, challenging trial.
Spectators should go to The Old Railway Line, a familiar parking area to most potential spectators in the area, but for those who may not have been there previously, parking is excellent just about anywhere along the old line with the 12 sections and start all easily accessible.
The first six sections are located just off the old railway track with the other six the other side of the valley, spectators having crossed the stream by the footbridge into the start field where there will be toilets and catering with the sections indicated on the map in the programme.
It promises to be an excellent event and is the only chance to watch all the top UK trials men in action in Cumbria this year.
