Harley Club - Trials Training Day

Good evening all, Just thought I'd add a couple of comments to the training day this Saturday (That's right, it's on Saturday due to Mother's Day. Especially with how busy this year is, we all need the brownie points). - The entrance to the HCV property is situated about 500m past the main entrance ...

Re: All grades in Aussie and State titles events

Okay, some further elaboration... Here we go... Deep breath... Re: Support classes at MotoGP / Formula One / V8 Supercars etc. These are not classes that are divided by skill, as this discussion is pertaining to and is, thus, irrevelent. These classes (GP2 & GP3 at F1 events, 125cc, 600cc at Mot...

Re: All grades in Aussie and State titles events

Since this issue has come up again, I'll have to state the tired old opinion again. As one that will directly benefit from a B-class open solo, I implore you to not run any grade that does not have regulatory restrictions. It is one trial per year and requires well-heeled observers and marshalls to ...

Re: Feedback please for 09 Titles

Okay, one quick final post from me on this one because there's too many people missing the point of the statement. Golf has officials going around with the groups as a secondary marker at the Majors; add to that, it's televised and would be rather difficult to get away with a sly stroke. That, and t...

Re: Feedback please for 09 Titles

Damo, Haven't you just made your argument redundant? You want the elite competitors to assist, yet you also believe that Novice through A-Grade should be directly catered for? Can someone name any sport where National Championships have classes purely for skill level? We are talking about the pinnac...

Re: Feedback please for 09 Titles

It is a shame that the discussion of support classes at the National titles comes up year after year... We are talking about the showcase event of Australian trials. Observers of a high quality are few and far between and are particularly required for these once-a-year events; surely riders who do n...

Re: 06 Crack...Am I the first???

Hey Neo, How does your bike carrier hold the bike on? We broke the lower engine mounting arm on our '94 Fantic through clamping the forks to a rigid bar on the trailer, due to inducing bending stresses into the headstock from the mounting running too low. Under braking and accelerating of the traile...

Outfit, Yes, rider 2 should definitely still win. Any motor racing series tie-break is decided by the number of wins as the first derivative, and the same goes for Superbike / WTC events that have multiple days / races. Winner of more sub-rounds gets the overall. Critically, you have suggested the '...

Outfit, I'd suggest your idea's a bit backwards. Using your system: First rider takes a point each lap at varying points, and a two in one section, ends the day on five. Second rider rolls backwards / cuts a marker too close / snaps the tape, loses five but was clean everywhere else. Surely, the sec...
