60 riders came to work off the effects of Christmas for the Poachers 2nd Charity Trial for December. Set out amongst the climbs of the old Railway embankment at Benniworth course plotters did an excellent finding eight sections that took marks from all but one rider, Mat Mison had a very impressive clean ride on the big Matchless on the Premier route. It was good to see Mick Ash out for the first time on his new Ariel which looked great. Premier route two-stroke riders Mick Grant and Jez bray had a dab each to both finish on one mark lost and unit winner Brent Cordon brought the Cub home dropping just three marks.
Intermediate route was won by Paul Kirkby out on his Cub, the only intermediate rider to finish on single figures losing a commendable five marks , four of them on section seven, which proved to be the hardest section for the inter riders.
Clubmen riders found section one perhaps the trickiest with class winner Dave Pykett losing his only mark here. The other Bantam riding Laycock, Andrew won the two-stroke Clubmans class on three marks lost which was the same score as Tom on the expert route.
