Guisborough & D.M.C. Alan Fothergill Trophy, Aislaby Quarries, Whitby, Sunday

A GOOD entry of seventy riders turned out for Guisborough club's Alan Fothergill Trophy trial for a three lap ten section course at a remarkably dry Aislaby Quarries on Sunday.

The event counted towards the Adult Clubman, Twin-shock and Northern Area Championship.

Sadly, only two experts contended for the main silverware but proved in fine form and well matched in what was a tough event, Russ Rooksby from Yarm holding off a strong challenge from Scarborough`s young talent, Zac Collinson, aboard the All Speed Gasser to win by a three mark margin.

Flagged around the old stone quarries above Aislaby village, the second section, a twisting climb over loose going saw Chris Laws drop five, as did Richard Ward and Rob Carter on B route.

Strong rides first lap from Amelia Mayhew, Harrison Skelton and Fantic mounted, Mark Butler.

The third was a real tester, a steep climb over rocks followed by a vicious plunge back down took double figures off both Rooksby and Collinson, while Paul Nelson took a flag out at the very end after a good ride.

Twin shock victor Dave Bell, Bulto mounted, posted a clean ride and never looked like dropping a mark.

The last section, a straight forward hill climb, observed by Pete Simpson grabbed no end of marks, but a fantastic ride from young Skelton, ringing the little 80 cc Beta`s neck to record a loss of just seven, where some of the bigger bikes floundered, but Youth B winner Elliott Laws bettered this by four marks.
