Preview of ACU Trial Expert and Trial 125 classes
The St David's Trial ACU Expert Class boasts big entry on Sunday.
Thirty two riders will compete in the ACU Expert Class with Chris Stay, Ben Morphett and Dan Thorpe who all stood on the podium at the first round fending off challenges from Sam Yeomans and Charlie Smith. World Ladies Champion, Emma Bristow has committed to all nine rounds of the series and has her eyes firmly fixed on a podium finish during the season.
Brett Harbud, Ben Dignan and Adam Harris finished in this order in the ACU Trial 125 class at round one, but no one would bet on them finishing in any particular order this time round.
The action starts at 9.30am and within two hundred meters of the start riders will face the opening two sections, the first being the famous “Dragons Tooth”. This has been increased in severity for the ACU Trial GB class this year by Clerk of the Course James Lamin. From here the riders take on an easterly loop to include sections at Shooters, Stairway to Heaven, Pink Floyd and Washers Weir Top, before looping back around to the final three sections including the “Big Gulley”.
Spectators are asked to follow the designated route which will be signed to all sections which will allow a visit to all twelve at some stage during the three lap event.

We will preview the ACU Trial GB and Trial 2 Classes tomorrow.
