Longtown Clubman Champ's Trial - 30July 2017

Words: Colin.

Event Index: Info. Snippets,


West Glos help the ACU Western area's Youth Development Squad to run a full trial on the last day of their summer camp. This is also a round of ACU Western's new Clubman Championship. All classes are allowed to enter but only certain ones are eligible for points.

This Sunday trial follows the Summer Training camp on the Friday and Saturday at the superb Longtown venue.

Camping is available over the 3 days at the official campsite opposite the venue with toilets/showers but limited hookups, if at all. We also have a great village pub (Crown Inn, Longtown), with some great food and drink available just next door.

The Squad have regular updates on their Facebook page.


Riders who book in for training with Si Welch will automatically be allocated and entry in the Sunday trial, though you will have to pay separately. If you know you will ride Sunday then you can enter Online in advance then if there is a bike problem or whatever resulting from the training days then you will be allowed a full refund.

We are hoping to use sections at the top of the farm and some tougher ones for a hard route. We will have more laps than last year as you all rode so well that you finished early and had energy for more!

Simon is planning to add more coaches to the list depending on the trainees booked in but please book early to avoid dissappointment.

This is a beautiful area on the edge of the black mountains, so if family want to come with you, there are walks and places to explore all around. (Plus they could help observe on the Sunday!) Checkout the tourist board for other activities all around. Abergavenny is nearest main town.

Any profits made at the Sunday trial get ploughed back into the Youth Development Squad.
