Cold and wet weather couldn’t stop 20 riders participating in the Oakleigh Motorcycle Club’s TDN training weekend.
Chris Bayles of Tasmania gave plenty of great tips for Saturday’s B, C+ grade and Sunday’s C, Clubman graded riders.
All riders commented on Chris’s great coaching advise and techniques with everybody improving their performance by the end of the day.
Not only great tips were given but a full smorgasbord of food complimenting the BBQ lunch was well received.
This is the 2nd year the OMCC has supported the TDN team and wishes them great success at this year’s Spanish TDN event.
Once again, OMCC will be running a training weekend at the club on the 5th and 6th Aug.
This is not just for club members but anyone that would like to travel to the Oakleigh MCC grounds and participate. Just bring your trials bike and MV licence. We will have “come and try day permits” for those that don’t have a licence.
Chris Bayles who was runner up to Kylie Middleton in last year’s Australian Titles is excited to give up his time to come over and present training to all levels of riders from Juniors right through to Experts.
Chris is a very down to earth guy with a huge amount of talent & experience which he’s only too happy to pass on his knowledge to anybody that participates in the training.
Like last year, OMCC will presented a cheque to the TDN team to help them get over to Spain for this year’s event.
We will be running 2 full day sessions at a cost of $70 per rider with lunch provided.
Saturday at 10am until 3:30pm and Sunday from 9:30am until 3pm.
It would be good to have “C+ grade and above on Saturday” and “C grade and below on Sunday” but this may change depending on when most riders can fit their time in.
So once again, don’t miss this great opportunity as 1st in 1st served.
Just email your participation to: firstname.lastname@example.org

The Oakleigh Motorcycle Club has just secured the Mt Baw Baw Alpine Ski Resort for a motorcycle trial’s event on the 25th and 26th March.
Normally used in the winter months for “snow skiing etc” and summer months for “downhill & cross country mountain bike riding”, it’s now going to cater for what maybe the 1st time a trial has ever been run at a ski resort in Australia.
For some of you that have visited this area, the sections will be placed on the rocks around the main car park area and along the valley heading to the downhill skiing area.
Naturally there will be plenty of accommodation at the resort and meals at the main restaurant for all to enjoy. We may even have Rob Austin entertaining us with his guitar playing and singing skills.
“Supp Regs” and “accommodation details” will be posted in the short future so pen this down in your diaries and hope to see you all there.
This Sunday Oakleigh MCC will hold its membership and presentation day at the Oakleigh Club Grounds.
Local Sherco and Scorpa dealer “Proline Motorcycles” will have a demo 2017 Sherco 300 for those interested in trying out the latest model.
