|I’m sure it’ll come as no surprise that the Pathfinder is once again full, though there is a reserve list entry available through the ACU Sport80 website. 3 stages do need quite a few helpers to run them, and we are looking for some more traveling marshals and observers. If you fancy a lovely day out in the woods (with a free burger ticket!!!!), please get in touch.|

Never done a 3 stage? Its a mix between a trial, a time trial and an enduro based on the original Army training trials format for all levels of rider! Below you can see an idea of how it usually works. Number of laps depends on course and conditions on the day. Stage 1 – Trial. 2 laps of 10 trials sections which are wide (big enough for trail and enduro bikes). Marking is 0,1,2,3,5 Around 2 hours to complete. There will be a short special test in this Stage. During this stage only, there will be Expert gates to challenge the Expert class riders. The other classes follow the main route. Stage 2 – Time Trial. 2 or 3 laps of the same sections (possibly eased slightly), but with a time limit of around an hour and a half. Harsher marking in the form of 0,3,5. Multiple bikes allowed in a section, but at riders risk! No Expert gates due to multiple bikes in the sections. Stage 3 – 3 or 4 laps in an hour but sections are not observed for footing or stopping – you just pass through the sections begins gate and any guide tapes as a checkpoint. Number of laps depends on class and conditions on the day. There is a break between each stage to have a rest, refuel etc.

Thanks to Anne & Jacqui doing “on the day entries” – remember them???!! To Reynard and Dave B for marking out on a dry Wednesday and then tweaking the course on rather more damp Saturday morning – there were a few tough sections, but no-one retired or disappeared into a bog! We hope to run our CTC round 3 on April 22nd at the Hermitage sand pit which is always drier! Also don’t forget our Pathfinder 3 Stage Trial at the excellent Bagshot D1/2 driver training area on May 21st. Regs will be open as soon as we can get it set up – keep an eye on the website and social media. Enter promptly as it fills very quickly. If not riding, we always need marshals and observers on the day, and help setting up on the Saturday – please contact us for details (firstname.lastname@example.org)
