Once again, the ski fields of Mt BawBaw produced a great trial with plenty to offer for all.

Many spectators were blown away with the “trial’s activity” being seen on the sky slopes and Mt BawBaw management very pleased with the way this sport is conducted.

7 sections from last year and 1 new one used with all existing being re-arrowed to give that new section feel.

With A, Expert and juniors doing 4 laps and the rest of the field completing 5 gave all riders and full days riding with not too much time left at the end.

Canberra’s Luke Anderson rode superbly to take out the A/Expert combined class on 32 pts with passed champion Dean Nuttall on 61 pts in 2nd and Zac Malarczyk with 71 pts in 3rd with also being the only riding doing the Expert lines.

With the Masters and B grade class combined, the older (or more experienced) riders took out the places with Simon VB in 1st, Phil Lewis in 2nd and Peter Wines in 3rd.

With Pat Sutton moving to B grade for the first time, it was Reece Chalmers taking out C+, Josh Aureri in 2nd and Bryce Robinson in 3rd.

Ben Hayes convincingly took out the C grade class with 2nd and 3rd place being quite close with Brad Watson edging out Bazil Tambanis.

Vets 40+ was also close with newly returned to the sport rider Tim Lloyd in 1st, Les Patterson in 2nd and John Rees in 3rd.

It was great to see the juniors getting around and having great fun also with Charlie Masovic, Sophie Haynes and Xavier Moore taking pops around (Steve Johnson).

Keep tuned for next year’s event with lots of new sections being considered further away from the ski centre.

Congratulations to OMCC for the huge effort getting this venue up and running and of course, all the officials and observers giving up their time for others to ride.

Oakleigh Gate Trial – Photos

Standard

The Oakleigh Gate trial took place despite the horrendous weather forecast.

After some rain initially, the sections were certainly wet and slippery. However, the weather remained dry throughout the majority of the day, making for ideal conditions once everything began to dry out.

We had a good turn out of riders, with the sections offering challenges to all skill levels. The scoring is very different to traditional trials events and proved to be quite challenging as riders really had to be quite strategic and imaginative in their line choice, as one little dab can cost them all their hard earned points!

A big thank you to everyone who helped organise, set up, score and catered for the event, we really appreciate your time and efforts

Photos of the event are now on our Facebook page. You can see all the photos by clicking here

Hopefully looking to run a few more of these events in the near future, so keep an eye out on the website or our social media for further updates.

Oakleigh Gate Trial 26.11.2017

MSallIMG_7915
Standard

WHEN:   Sunday the 26th of November
WHERE:    Simpson Road, Clayton North, Victoria

Everyone is invited to participate in this Gate Trial practice event. The trial is to be held at the Oakleigh Club Grounds on the 26th of November 2017.

A gate trial is a different style of trial where all grades can compete against each other in the same sections. The idea is to score points by riding through pairs of arrows that define a “gate”. The rider decides which line to follow to get the maximum score possible for his or her riding ability. Unlike a normal trial, the rider with the most points wins.

Each grade will get their chance to score a set amount of points through their section AND more points by collecting extra gates as they are running through their section.
There will only be 3 grades; White, Blue and Red.

This will be a self‐scoring event with no trophies; however we do request that ALL riders are to be riding in pairs and score each other.

Hope to see you there.

Standard

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.
