FOUR NEW PLATES FOR FOUR NEW LEADERS
With rounds two and three just three weeks away there will be four new class leaders going into the Anthony Rew Trial which forms round two on Saturday 26th June. With an oversubscribed entry for the event (and round three the following day) all classes are brimming with talent and the big question is " how many can retain the leaders red plate for two days?"
With a new, brighter colour and now with white numbers to stand out better, it will be Toby Martyn who will display the red number two plate at Kelly Farm and will surely want to retain it for the following day at round three near Tavistock.
There will be no one more proud than Alexz Wigg to display the red thirty three plate as he defends his win in the Trial 2 class at Hookwood last month.
There is no doubt that Harry Hemingway will have his sights on retaining the number forty three red leaders symbol in the Trial 125 class for the whole series and if not, certainly when the series finishes at the end of October.
Chris Alford will display the seventy one number for the whole year and his aim will be to retain the red version for as long as possible. With the consistent ride he produced at Hookwood, who will be able to topple him during the nine round series?
With the opening round done and dusted, the ballot for each class (except ACU Trial GB and Trial 125) now comes into play with the top six in ACU Trial 2 and the top eight in ACU Trial Expert being seeded to the back of their respective classes.
We will publish a full list of starters when the ballot is completed on Wednesday 23rd June.
A reminder to all riders that the entries for round four, the Lakeland Trial are filling fast and will undoubtedly close before the due date.
