Master of the Mines Series
Due to the running of the trials park we have had to have a look at the number of trials that we run over the year, there is only so much our small number of team members can do, and running the park every Sunday and now on Wednesday evenings too is a massive commitment!!!
We are also aware that the trials were very well attended and that many folk enjoyed the type of events we run. Not wanting to change too much we have came up with a solution we hope you will enjoy.
Right from the start of our quest to get back onto the Leadmines it was always our hope that when we got back up onto it that we could run some sort of series to showcase the area and the history.
What we have decided to do is run a series of three trials over the summer season called “The Master of the Mines”.
The first trial is set for Sunday 22nd of May , starting at 11. The other two dates are yet to be confirmed, but all will follow the same format. Four laps of ten sections set out across the Leadmines bringing back into play some old school sections from years gone by and hopefully some totally new ones too!! Robert, John, Andy and others have been up the last few Sundays reminiscing and cutting away to get access to these sections.
At the end of the series the winner will be crowned “Master of the Mines”.
As usual the course will suit all grades of rider on all types of machinery! Get your old bikes dusted down and get them out!! It would be fantastic to see some real old classic machines back out on the Leadmines, old 50s rigids, 60s Villiers powered machines, 70s Bultos, Monts and other Spanish bikes, and on into the 80s and beyond! Bikes that many riders took up the hill over the past 70 odd years!!
Also, don’t be shy! If you want to join in and help come on up! There more input we get the better!!
See you all on 22nd of May!!
