Report on the Nene Valley Motorcycle Club Annual Albert Glover Trial Venue: Glendon Quarry. Date: 11/03/18 A healthy entry of 56 riders braved the mud at Glendon quarry for the 2nd round of the 2018 club championship. The Albert Glover Trial was traditionally a road based open to centre event and the trophy features many great riders from the club’s history. Fitting then that the Expert win was a closely fought battle between two long standing members whose fathers are both past winners. Steve Bird took the win holding his nerve finishing on just 1 point, clearly enjoying riding his new TRS. Jonathan Lee narrowly lost out on the furthest cleans tie break and showed his liking for the conditions, being the only rider to clean the tough section 6 every lap. Another tie break was required for 3rd and 4th with Joe Collins getting the nod over Dan Greeves, both on 5 marks. Best Inter was Martin Greeves making good use of the 300 Beta’s power. 50/50 Winner was the photogenic T&MX regular Dean Devereux who also set the lowest score on the middle route, riding his lovely Honda TLM260. Alfie-Ray Turner was the Youth C class winner. Riding the 50/50 route Alfie impressed many people with some great rides on the screaming little Beta 80. The Clubman class is always closely contested, Nick Boxall using all his experience took a well deserved win on his Beta. Section 6 again proving the toughest as the conditions worsened with […]

I recently discovered some classic video footage on of an old Nene Valley Trial on YouTube which is well worth a look. The Trial was around 1987/88 at Desborough Quarry. There are some familiar faces on there, many of which are still riding. Click here to view the video Turn your sound off though as the audio was corrupted during the transfer.

AUTO-CYCLE UNION SOUTH MIDLAND CENTRE 21 Buckingham Drive Luton Beds LU2 9RA Phone 01582 455714 Mob 07747 855264 email@example.com www.southmidlandcentrea-cu.com 19th November 2014 To All South Midland Club Secretary’s. I apologies that this letter is late, just had a busy period with the AGM etc Insurance and event costs. I have just today received a note from Rugby with new insurance rates. There will be a new Insurance Matrix issued on Friday, but the nub of the costs are Trials Insurance Adult £3. (from £2.70) and Basic Package for Motocross from £650 to £700, and the additional / reduction for rider numbers will remain the same. I will bring this up at Management as a discussion point, as a big jump after two zero movement years does not impress anyone ! You should already have seen in the Management Minutes that the Centre has increased some costs. They are Permit per event £22 (£20) Levy per rider £1.10 (£1) However the Stewards Fee for all Expert and Total Championship Trials will be paid by the Centre, so that will probably save most Clubs £35 per year. It will probably cost around an additional £2.50 for other trials events assuming 50 riders. Affiliations Unfortunately this letter doesn’t seem to get to Club Treasurers, as I asked that Affiliation Forms should all be sent to me, either with a cheque for the value, or the cash could be sent electronically to the Centres account. After numerous years of sending […]
