A dry and mild day greeted a bumper entry of 40 riders for the Nomads annual Christmas charity trial. The entry consisted of a wide variety of machines – from pre-65 2 stroke twins to the latest trials bikes and even an electric bike.  All classes were equally well supported and a good days riding was had by all.

Thanks should go to the Haines family for running the very welcome half-time hotdogs and hot drinks (where else do you get lunch thrown in for your £15 entry fee?) , and as always to Reynard and Dave for layout a fun and largely dry course

We raised nearly a £100 for the landowners charity, which the club will make up to £200, and it was noted that the paddock area was completely clear of rubbish, which all helps to protect  this great piece of trials ground. Next trial – Saturday 7th March, .  Round 4, Club Trials Championship 19/20 – Ellisons, Thatcham

On a slightly less positive note,  one competitors van was scraped in the car park:

“To the person who scraped the side of my black van at the Club Trial on Saturday, please do the decent thing and contact me. The repair costs (scraped plastic side trim and rear wheel arch panel) won’t be huge but your contribution would be appreciated. We trials community are just that, so please step up and give me a call, text, Whatsapp. 07894 554464. Thanks, Roy.”

Merry Christmas from the Aldermaston Nomads!

Reynard and Dave have been out setting a course that should be fun and enjoyable for all levels and classes.  Start is at 11am

I’m told we even have a new portaloo tent!

Aldermaston Nomads Club Trials Championship – 2019/20 – Round 2 – Pickling Yards – RESULTS

Aldermaston Nomads Club Trials Championship – 2019/20 – Round 2 – Pickling Yards

CTC  Rnd2 trial was held at the Pickling Yards Mortimer on Armistice Saturday where 27 riders enjoyed 4 laps of 10 sections in mixed Woodlands. The event began in dry weather but within an hour rain set in, so those who got a move on benefitted as conditions deteriorated.

The two course plotters, Reynard & Dave , had set out in the week prior & produced sections achievable by most, with only 2 minor retirements. The day had started with the landowners gate padlock malfunctioning which caused an hours delay in borrowing a cordless cutter, but thankfully the event progressed in time.

of the riders who anticipated the imminent arrival of rain & got a move on was septuagenarian Reynard Norris who lost only 5 marks on the harder “A” route to win from a much younger Thomas Hawthorne on 7ml & Victoria Payne on 22ml.

Route “B” was close also as David Bathe dug out his Yamaha mono to win by 1 mark from Adrian Steele on 10 & Dave Barrett on 19.

On “C” route, last year’s series winner Jonathan Evans lost just 1 to win from Adam Huckstep 6 & brother Jack on 7.

Pre 65 rider Glen Hutchins on his James however lost 0 marks in his win from Wayne Hutton ,Cub,on6.

A route-Reynard Norris (Beta)5, Tom Hawthorne(Sherco)7, Victoria Payne(Sherco)22, Tony Moulder(Beta)22.

Youth A -Bailey Tidbury(Beta)41

B route-David Bathe(Yam)9, Adrian Steele(Beta)10, Dave Barrett(Beta)19

C route- Jon Evans(Gas Gas)1, Adam Huckstep(Sherco)6, Jack Huckstep(Beta)7
