A couple of rookie line-ups earning top-10 results … this is the stuff of fairytales.
New Zealand could not have asked for more from its Trials des Nations campaign at the weekend, a four-rider Kiwi men’s team and two-rider Kiwi women’s team arriving at the Trail des Nations for the first time in 10 years and taking on the world elite at this “Olympic Games of Trials” at La Chatre, in France.
A total of 22 countries took part, with the top five professional nations competing in the elite Group A Class, while the remaining 17 nations, including…..

Jake Whitaker – New Zealand and Australian MOTO TRIALS CHAMPION !
Just arrived home after our 3 day New Zealand Championship over labour weekend. This year it was held down in the south Island in Alexandra, one of my most favourite places to ride with all sections being set on big slabs of rock with endless traction. I made it 6 titles in a row this year winning the expert class with a clean three days, which meant I was able to ride faultless the entire competition, something I haven’t been able to do since I was riding in the junior class but never a three day event!!
The event was set on the easier side to the usual standard of sections here in NZ, the top few riders were loosing very few points which made it a tough event mentally, a laps in concentration could have resulted in a very different outcome, even the riders in the bottom end of the grade had very low scores for a championship level event. After handing in 4 lap cards of zero on Saturday I new it was going to be?…..

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!
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.

We have DVD’s that we recorded of the FIM WORLD TRIAL CHAMPIONSHIP
in Australia-May 2012
New Zealand has the opportunity to bring Jack Challoner to show us Kiwis how it’s done in the world championships. Also attending will be Jacks minder Dan Clark who has also competed in the world rounds in the past.
We are looking at having three training camps one in Tauranga, one in Wellington, and the last one in Christchurch. These camps will be held in November 2013 but dates will be confirmed at a later date.
These camps will be held on a weekend and will run for two days. We are limiting numbers per training camp to make sure you get your money’s worth and to make sure you get one on one with these two top riders.
This is a great opportunity to be able to be trained by a current top ten world trials rider. Both Jack and Dan hold training schools back in the UK and they are always popular.
Training days will be split into two groups and you will then swap over so you all get time with both lads.
Training days will only be open to the two options above!
Your training fee will be going towards fundraising for their airfares.
Jack will put on a demo at lunch time so you will get to see up close just how good this lad really is!
We are just looking at numbers on who would be interested in attending these camps at this stage with more info to come.
North Island riders please contact John Ravenscroft.
South Island riders please contact Karl Clark.
