A great days riding at the 2017 Pathfinder. Superb weather and a great course meant the full entry had a hugely enjoyable event. General feedback was that every one had a great time. The only shame was that the Pathfinder is the only remaining 3 Stage now. Maybe the success of this one will inspire other clubs to run a 3 Stage.
Massive thanks to all the marshals and organisers who ran the event. The Pathfinder requires a lot of observers, so without them it wouldn’t happen.
Also thanks to all the rider who turned out. we were actually turning away entries in the preceding weeks. Well done to the class winners. NB: If you receive the posted copy of the results, we spotted a mistake to second place in EN C after posting. Corrected here.

Results attached for Round 4 at Ellison’s Canyon – 4th March 2017
Following a wet lead up to the trial, the weather was better on Saturday with only a shower in the afternoon. Although muddy, the sections held up well for the 17 riders that turned out. (A considerable improvement on the few we had there last year).
Thanks go to Reynard Norris and Dave Barrett for laying out a good course in very wet conditions the day before.

Happy New Year from the Aldermaston Nomads!
A cold but dry day greeted the Nomads Christmas trial on the 2nd January. Once again the venue was the Pickling Yards, which has changed a little over the last year or so with some forestry work. Reynard put in a lot of effort over the last couple of weeks to provide a good course. It was particularly good to see the first group of sections in an area we haven’t used before.
41 riders braved the cold and enjoyed a good days riding along with hot dogs and gluwine provided by the club during the lunch break. The club raffle (and donations for the refreshments (+ a topup from the club) raised £200 for Englefield estates’ chosen charity.
With the exception of the clay banks by the lake, the sections probably rode easier as the day went on, and the course was cleared quickly at the end of the day.
