New Sections for Round One
A lot of work has gone on at Hookwood in recent months with some new sections and modifications to existing ones being carried out by the enthusiastic team, headed by Clerk of the Course, Jim Connor.
Whilst Jim stressed that the ACU Trial Expert and Trial 125 route will be testing, but relatively straight forward for Centre level Experts, the Trial GB route will have some very technical parts to it, whilst the Trial 2 sections will be less complicated, but very testing.
With an eye on the new one minute time allowance for each section, the Sandpit has been split into two for 2020, before the riders cross the approach road to tackle three slippery sections in the Oakwood and then retuning to the "main arena" where massive rocks have been moved to create three completely new variations. Section two from 2019 now features as section eleven before the final section of large logs completes the lap right in front of the start finish area.
Our picture shows Jim and Sam Connor- who has aided with section planning, with Stephen Dabreo demonstrating one of the tree trunks to be used for the ACU Trial GB class near the sandpit. We apologise for Fudge, the dog, being camera shy!
The action takes place at Hookwood, West Horsley on SATURDAY March 7th.
