I believe that few people are exploring the information available to them. Please pass the following message on to trials people.
Championship standings can be viewed on SWAN (www.trialscores.com).
The HOME PAGE lists results and information in the DATA CENTRE. Click on DATA CENTRE to view RECENT EVENTS, FUTURE EVENTS and CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES.
Then click on SERIES RESULTS for the 2013 North Island Championship.
A rider’s best 8 results from the 10 rounds will determine his championship position.
Blake Fox has the overall lead but Jake Whitaker is chasing him down. John Haynes cannot afford to drop any further rounds if he is to challenge.
Liam Draper is running away with the A Grade championship, but Jacob Gundry and Carl Robson continue to battle for second place.
The Intermediate grade is developing into a tight battle. David Trewin has the lead, but he cannot afford to slip, because Craig Thompson, Snowy and Kevin Gundry are ready to attack.
2013 NI Trials Champs hosted by the Waitemata Motorcycle Club and held in the Auckland region over
the weekend of 13/14 April.
This report was written by Peter Boettcher.
I would also like to extend my thanks to all the riders … one of the observers had not observed trials for thirty years and was very impressed by the courteousness of all the riders and their appreciation of all the observers’ assistance to make this a successful weekend. I was asked to pass these comments on to the riders.
2 day Report
25th January 2013
There are now entries open for Rounds 1&2 and 3&4 of the N.I. series by going to www.mnz.co.nz or Click here! , ‘clicking’ on Moto Trials and ‘clicking’ on the event you want to enter. I understand the S.I. rounds are in the planning process but as yet no permit application has reached my desk. We urge you to enter early this year as most administrators are unhappy with the last minute entry ‘rush’ that has occurred in previous years. To this end The Ixion Club has introduced an automatic late entry penalty of $20 extra to be effective after midnight on 18th Feb. Hamilton is following suit but is requiring entry by 15th. I am sure that other clubs will take a lead to try and compile their rider lists at least 10 days before the event. I will admit that there have been some small teething issues relating to placing a two tier fee on the web for your payment [you may or may not notice an incorrect fee on the info sheet. However the entry process contains correct amounts]. So again I will ask for some leniency should the system falter for you. Please contact me if this is the case. Remember we put these systems in place to try and improve administration and ease the workload of our precious administrators. Jim Henderson for Moto Trials 8th December 2012 Hi All, 2013 Championship Moto Trials will be run under “stop” rules. If there is no change in FIM’s position, 2014 will run under Non Stop rules. We will all use the coming Trials season to adjust our thinking and clubs will be wise to run some nonstop events. I would like to invite you all to a Non Stop workshop weekend at Wellington on 10th – 11th August 2013. Please keep this day free on your proposed calendars. More details to follow but the basics will involve section setting and bike riding. Jim Henderson for Moto Trials
World Moto Trials comes to Australia.
The advent of a World Trials round in Australia has given viewing opportunity to many in Australia and NZ who have never seen this calibre in the motorcycle discipline before. We were to witness the sheer size and scale of obstacles that must be attacked without the fear that surely a mere mortal would possess. Riders were seen to attack 3 metre steps with such accuracy that a wheel width off line could send them crashing some 5 metres below. Mostly this was prevented by some ‘heroic’ minding. The venue for this spectacle was Mt Tarrengower, Maldon which is an historic village not far from Bendigo, Victoria. It was an ideal source of large and grippy rocks, a valley with slab rock sides and a man made log section. The organisers, MA and Trials Club of Victoria, made an excellent job of giving an entertaining week to all who attended. The NZ contingent who would have consisted of around 120 people in total was there to support “their own” Jake Whitaker, John Haynes and Blake Fox with ‘Minders’ Nick Ball, Warren Laugesen and Gavin Fox. Also in competitors circle was Karl Clark who was ‘Minding’ for Pro rider Jack Challoner. While it was never going to be an Australia or NZ podium on any grand scale [Europeans feature heavily on the pro circuit and it is some way off for ‘Down under’Trialsters] it was a very good result for NZ riders with Jake taking a 4th and a 7th in the Junior class [under 23] and staying ahead of all Australian riders and getting among the Europeans. Meanwhile John took a 4th and a 5th and Blake a 7th and a 4th in the Youth [under 18] class and both kept mainly ahead of the Australians. All who made the trip from NZ have spoke of the opportunity to see the “amazing”. Thank you Australia, for bringing Moto Trials ‘Down under’. This is a report that I submitted to MNZ with pictures to go onto the website. I would still like to receive the group photo taken at section 15 on Sunday. I was at a loss as my camera broke down en route. On the International front I would like to congratulate Jake, Nick, Blake Gavin, John, Warren and Karl for their valiant efforts in Maldon. You made us proud. I would also congratulate Carl Robson and Steve Armistead for their showing and finishing of the SSDT and Pre 65 ST respectively. Thanks Jim….
