I believe we would have more people move from clubman to C grade if the standard of C grade lines was set as they were at Argyle. There has been a too greater gap between clubman and Cgrade in the past. If C grade is too easy then there is C plus. The previous C grade lines were too hard especially on twin shock and classics, C grade should be more about getting around obsticles ( eg tight turns) and small rocky sections than climbing over large rocks. I would like to hear other peoples opinions on this. P.s well done Clive and the rest of the OMCC very enjoyable weekend.P.S 2 by the way i came 6 out of 7 but enjoyed every line
Darren, hit the nail on the head in his first 4 sentences. for what I see there is the bulk of the riders ride white and blue. All he is saying is that there appears to be no easy set up from White to blue at times, lets just keep it simple and zero in on that.
Does this sport want to encourage new riders into the sport, assist juniors to move up, and provide an easier path into higher grade. Or does it want to stay where it is, have C graders and clubman riders riding the same grade for years. We are not all talented like Tony Bou and are lot of riders are new to motorbiking and Trials.
It is not hard to cater for novice riders up through to higher level C graders. After all we all just want to have fun, enjoy ourselves, fell challenged and go away from the trial with all parts of our bodies in one piece and not damaged
This is such a great discussion thread and clearly shows that there is a need for this
