2010 Sherco Australian Women's Mototrial Cup & other news

Postby BAT Woman » Wed Jun 09, 2010 12:54 pm

Good morning all,

with less than 4 weeks til The Women's Cup I thought it timely to hopefully motivate all the women & girls that love trials to come along & celebrate their fun & challenging sport. At The 2010 Sherco Australian Women's Cup being held near Canberra ACT (Australian Capital of Trials) on the 4th July 2010. Independence Day with a twist (of the throttle, of course)! If you are dead serious about your trials or just enjoy the social, 'having a go' side of the sport, please make the effort to come along & help us celebrate our presence & acceptance in this wonderful sport of trials.

Again, there will be classes to cater for you all, as follows:

Expert Women (A & B grade)
Sports Women (C grade)
Masters Women (>40 years, any grade)
Novice Women (club grade)
Junior Women (<16 years, any grade)
Sub-junior Women (<12 years, any grade)

As I will need to organise trophies & prizes, if you are thinking of attending, I need you to text or email me & let me know & what class you intend to enter, please. I thank you in anticipation of your prompt attention in this matter.

Looking forward to hearing from lots of you! :D

OTHER NEWS:

Congratulations to Kristie McKinnon for her fine 5th place in this year's SSDT, big effort!

Remember to keep 21-22 August free for the Australian Titles in Queensland. Us southerners will be ready for a dosing of Vitamin D by then. How about a Master Women's Class??

MA is holding an AIS Women's Camp on 13-16 September here in Canberra, an exceptional opportunity to improve your skills, fitness & enjoyment in trials. Make sure you get your applications in to MA before 9th July. Shame about the timing, it could have been a perfect spring board to the Trials des Nations for our Women's Team.

A reminder about the SA Women's Cup being held 25-26 September, a 2 day event to make it worth your while, in the Barossa Valley. Please consider supporting this event as they are promoting women's participation in trials.

Yours in trials,

Bev Anderson-Tranter

Hi Bev,

Good luck with the Sherco Australian Women's Cup this year, hope it goes really well for you and your team.

Thanks for the plug for our event in September - already getting phone calls of interest from Victoria, so hopefully it will be a great event and I hope to see you over this year as well!

I will post more info about our event after yours has been run and won.

Cheers
Andrew

2010 SHERCO AUSTRALIAN WOMEN'S CUP REPORT

For the 2nd year in a row the Women’s Cup was held at the Beckett’s Captain’s Flat property & again proved to be the idea location with a great variety of sections skilfully crafted by the TCC trusty section setting crew.

The day before, the paddock was buzzing with arrival of interstate trials families & locals, setting/clearing sections, showing off balancing tricks, having a ride & generally just socialising.

The morning of the trial was as cold, as forecast (the Reed kids were happy to have taken up Toby & Michelle’s offer of a cosy house & left the poor grandparents to fend for themselves), but the sun was shinning & the warmth & excitement in the pits was heartening for the start of the 9th Annual Women’s Cup. The obligatory Cup photos were taken, with of course, some riders missing because of their eagerness to get riding. The numbers were down on previous years, because of an unfortunate clashing of dates with the Victorian State Round, but the quality & commitment of the 13 Women & girls riding made up for the lack of numbers. The effort made, especially by the Queensland & Victorian riders to attend, is greatly appreciated & acknowledged. Thanks also, to the effort, of all the parents & grandparents, who support their girls in their chosen sports & transported them to the Women’s Cup.

Sherco/Trialzone Section One was placed on the side of a steep hill. Starting off traversing the section north it was a tight turn south, or up & over logs (depending on your grade), & up & down the steep hill side again a number of times according to your grade. The early leaf litter made it interesting but by 2nd lap clear lines were evident. Young Shelby Lonie (who is a dead ringer for her big sister Brooke, a few years ago) rode her line very competently. She has definitely been practising her tight turns, well done Shelby! Aisla Anderson had a magic ride on this section outshining those that went before her. She is definitely on the way up & is justifying her selection in the Trials des Nations Team.

Monza Imports Section Two was next to section one on the steep hill side, this time there were more rocky outcrops to contend with. The C line changed many times during the day with the movement of a group of logs poised at different angles on the hill side. A tight off camber turn out for the Club riders was a challenge & my young Brooke made her day (& mine) by managing to clear it on her last attempt.

TJ’s MotorcycleTyres & Accessories Section Three was again on the same hillside this time with even bigger rocks for everyone to negotiate, but the stable ground actually made this a very rideable section & everyone seemed to enjoy riding it.

Kaos Trials Team Section Four was the start of the mud sections, which thankfully have been starting to be a more regular feature of recent trials. Those who had fitted new tyres were happy they did. It was a slippery sliding ride over the creek & up & down the steep dirt banks of another hill side. The muddy sections made for some good spectating, especially of the higher grades.

The Hell Team Section Five was again muddy but up & down a steep gully with not much traction & a short run up. Even getting into the section was a quagmire & needed to be attacked at speed to not be sucked into it. It was fun!!

KD Moto-Trials Section Six was up a steep, muddy, rocky creek bed, again weaving up & down the steep, rocky side while local crowd had a great vantage point standing on other side of the dirt bank & watching, cheering & being in awe of the top riders in action. Not to mention appreciating the antics of the mere mortals. Sue Ferris was riding the Club line very smoothly, looking very confident.

Canberra Motorcyle Centre Fyshwick Section Seven was in the same creek just 2 metres from the last exit, causing a bit of a bottleneck & bikes were often strewn wherever a spare muddy cm could be found, while the riders walked the section. Again muddy/rocky low lines for the lower grades & exciting/challenging rides up the side of the crevice for the more gifted, encouraged to the delighted spectators, young & old.

Canberra Motorcyle Centre Mitchell Section Eight was a bit of a ride away, through the creek up & over a cleared paddock hill, dropping over the other side into a wooded patch with the section perched on yet another steep incline. The section was hill climbs of various lengths, according to grade, negotiating trees, rocks, logs & much bush litter to then return to the base with tight, steep, turns only to blast back up the hillside again before dropping back down to the exit posts. A few breath holding moments were seen here.

Montesa Section Nine was a little further out towards the road, again blasting over the paddocks through gates to a mellow gully with big fallen trees to ride over again & again, & slippery mud banks to keep it interesting.

Joe’s Motorcycles Section Ten was only a few metres up the gully to tackle some more, huge, fallen trees & more slippery banks. Causing some riders grief early in the trial but like many of the sections one was usual able to master it later in the day. Four laps in all meant a comfortable pace for most riders.

Then it was time for the presentation always anticipated with great excitement. It was the formal recognition of the Women’s Cup with not only lovely silver cups, donated by Sherco to recognise their achievements but a huge bootie of awesome giveaways from the extreme generosity of all the section sponsors. It is the icing on the cake for a wonderful day. The girls went away with an array of oils/lubs/clothing/accessories/tyres/etc. All these supporting businesses, every year, do not think twice about sponsoring the event. Our wholehearted gratitude goes out to you one & all!!

Now to our results:
Expert Woman’s Champion is balancing queen, Kristie McKinnon, for the second year running. Runner Up goes to past champ Michelle Coleman, only 3 points in arrear with the fast improving Ailsa Anderson taking 3rd place & 4th place taken out by the capable Brooke Lonie .
Sports Woman’s Champion is the irrepressible Adina Reed, (she almost stampeded to take the TJ rear tyre prize & well deserved as she rode with a seriously worn out one). Runner Up went to lovely Victorian, Ina Halls.
Master Women’s Champion is proudly, myself with the loyal Sue Ferris as Runner Up.
Novice Women’s Champion is Julie Collins, it is a shame we loose Julie to MX for most of the year but great to see her come back to the annual Women’s Cup & ride so well. Runner Up was the stoic Estelle Boorer who manages to balance riding, with minding for Jonty, keeping an eye on Kaitlin in the van & being the face of Koas Trials Team. Our newest rider, Kayla Silin, took 3rd .
Junior Women’s Champion is my proud Brooke Tranter, also most improved going from a lap of 16 down to 1 on the last lap.
Sub-Junior Women’s Champion is the very capable & determined Shelby Lonie, Matt must be very proud of his girls.

Special thanks, to the Trials Club of Canberra for again hosting the Women’s Cup. The tireless work of the all the volunteers in just amazing.

Also, thanks to our gorgeous trophy boy, Jacko Murray.

I would like to wish all the entrants in the Aussie Titles the best of luck. I was hoping to attend but I have more pressing issues at home this year. So, do good & enjoy!

Next year, we plan to celebrate the Women’s Cup 10th Year Anniversary. Don Murray & I are already throwing a few ideas around to make it a very special event. So, we will keep you posted & hoping all the women & girls will be able to come & help celebrate 10 years of recognising our participation in the sport of Mototrials.
