Club Trial 8/8/18

Maesteg Motorcycle Club #MMCC ran their first open trial at their Bryn venue on the sunny Wednesday evening on 8th August 2018.  Priceless Lloyd Price was the overall winner of the event.  There were 3 rider categories Sportsman /Clubman and Experts, also with masters classes using three sections of the class above. Sections included tight turns with steep banks and the odd stream thrown in for fun.  There was a brilliant turnout of 31 entries which #MMCC were really proud off and made the club feel rewarded for all their hard work in setting up and holding the event.  Experts and Clubman masters started on section 4 while everyone else started at section 1, everyone who entered the event agreed the sections were challenging but fun and some even enjoyed the boggy sections. Jason Galvin was runner up to Lloyd and took a worthy second place.


Clubman Masters was dominated by Julian Collins with an incredible ride result scoring 9. Second place taken by the up and coming British enduro rider Harry Hiller Rees and a close third by old man James Lamin. Clubman had the most entries into their class, some were very experienced riders who could have easily competed at Experts.  At least two sections looked daunting to the riders but when ridden were completed cleanly by most. Clubman was won by a two finger Martin Jones and the runner up was penshener Antony Macklin on his shiny four stroke Beta.

Sportsman Masters, some riders were good enough to ride at Clubman class and missed a few fun section. The day was won by a very slim looking Dai Bedford and the runner up was Wayne Thomas on his 1000th trial,  third was taken by John Morgan. Sportsman class is for riders getting into the sport or very old boys on their way out.  All at #MMCC agree this was a great first event for the club and we’d like to thank all who attended including the spectators. Clerk of the course was our very own Andrew Williams (Coach) and both #MMCC and the Coach would like to thank all the observers, especially the new ones, also Harry, Spock, Lloyd, Hicksy & Ioun (aka Twix) for helping build a brilliant and challenging course, cut down ferns and help the club to hold a superb event. #MMCC are planning to put more of these events on in the near future so keep a keen eye on our Facebook page and website for upcoming events.

The Hopkins Memorial 2nd April 2017


We were blessed with a sun kissed venue on the morning of Maesteg Motorcycle Clubs first ever enduro since its inauguration 6 months ago, the team of volunteers stood ready at their marshal points looking over their hard work they’d endured during the wet and cold winter months. Spring was here and so was the smell of crisp two stroke premix filling the air, along with the culinary delights served up by our club member Jason in the parking area. The first rider Mark Miles was set off at 10:00am to attack the arduous terrain that the club had set out for the riders. It wasn’t long before the first obstacle a 10-foot bank out of a river caught a few riders out and created a bit of a bottle neck. The riders soldiered on and made sure they didn’t make the same mistake on the following laps. Ashley James and James Davies found out just how deep the Maesteg bogs were by parking their bikes in a vertical fashion, the ground didn’t seem to want to let them go yet they endured the remainder of the lap to get to the first check within time. Matt Wooten had to be given the prize for best attempts of the hard option gap jump after 3-4 spectacular fails lading him in the pit. The river crossings seemed to be where the choice of lines really counted for saving time and the marshal’s done an outstanding job of directing and rerouting to allow the event to flow.


There were some very talented riders within the Expert class however British Team ISDE Silver Medallist Jamie Lewis proved unstoppable, setting some blistering times around the track and came away with the overall trophy. Jack Heath in second had a great ride setting very consistent times throughout his 3 special tests and proved on the pace narrowly making the final tight check lap. Lennie Tidd rounded up the top three and set two good test times after getting stuck on the first test, he narrowly dropped a minute on the final tight check but made easy work of Maesteg’s hard option gap jump.


In the Veteran class produced a winner in the form of Gareth Leonard that has experience in hard, wet, muddy conditions albeit on a rugby pitch. Second place was Chris Thumwood who had a consistent and intelligent ride staying on time and setting two good test times. Michael Rees in third on the other hand dropped time blabbing in the pits, yet set some very quick times that would have seen him battling with some of the Experts.


The Clubman class proved a hard day’s work on their set check times with only 1st place Damien Close and 2nd Place Lewis Simpson staying on time throughout the day. Dean Hancox rounded out the top three with a good ride in class.


The Sportsman class saw some close competition however Jack Griffiths put in a very quick test time and came away with the win in what I believe was his first endure, Jack may want to move up a couple of classes with his now race proven ability. Mark Miles the rider that started the event off put in a very good test time and finished up in second, again the challenge for the next event could be to give some of the clubman a run for their money. Jonathan Williams rounded off the sportsman class in a respectable third with all three riders staying on time.


Maesteg Motorcycle Clubs first event seemed to be a success, with nothing but good feedback from the rider, spectators and the ACU steward. The club would like to thank everyone that took part in the event and would like to extend this to the generous land owner for their time and effort to make this happen. The Clubs next Enduro Event will be held in August so stay tuned and don’t miss it!
