Adrian Brown Trial, November 10 & 11, 2012

Adrian Brown Trial, 2012

The Adrian Brown Trial was held at Summerland on November 11th in very cold and slippery conditions.

However, the turn-out of riders was excellent considering the weather for both the vintage on Saturday and the modern on Sunday, A total of $745 was raised for the Cancer fund.

After a short Remembrance day service on Sunday, which included the reading of "In Flanders Fields" and The Last Post (played on the Harmonica), twenty riders in three classes set off to tackle a 5km loop with 15 sections.

In spite of the slick rocks, everybody had a really good time, and even the riders out for their very first Trials competition were all smiles at the end.

It was Brandon Wince who took the win in the top class for the 3rd straight year, but the fight for 2nd & 3rd, was close between buddies Stan Bakgaard and Steve Day.
