Stainsacre’s Rigg Hall hosted Guisborough and District Motorcycle Club’s second round of their summer series trial and were lucky to miss the heavy showers.
Clerk of course Bill Filer said afterwards: “That’s the first time I have marked a trial out here on dry going and it reflects in the scores.”
Matt Maynard and Chris Barnfather finished level on points, with Maynard taking the win on most cleans rule.
Maynard almost lost his chance of victory when losing five marks on the difficult rocky river section of number eight, but fought back with a faultless ride on the rocks of five.
Jak Holtby finished third with former East Yorks champion Mark Harrison fourth.
Brotton’s Liam Ashurst grabbed Clubman A class with a strong ride, leaving Danby’s Ian Hopley - aboard the immaculate twin shock Yamaha - runner-up.
Other old bikes were still competitive in the hands of experienced riders Clubman B winner, Whitby’s Richard Harrison on the Monoshock Yamaha and third place Ian Atkinson on a beautiful old Montesa. Glaisdale’s Andy Dale on the modern Beta split the two ‘old uns.’
The Adamski brothers - Hamish and Chester - from Lealholm were early numbers over the slimy river sections, but produced strng rides to win Youth B and C classes.
Guisborough DMC thank all involved.
