North Lincolnshire Classic Motorcycle Club
Kickstart Challenge 2018
North Lincolnshire Classic Motorcycle Club held its first ‘Kickstart Challenge’ at Winterton Steam and Vintage Rally on 15th and 16th September. It was a great success with 29 Riders tackling 8 sections against the clock in our own arena. There were 3 riders from each category that went through to the final and the trophy winners were;
Junior Jasper Fox
Modern Callum Hedison
Classic Callum Hedison
Junior Jacob Potts
Modern Simon Hurst
Classic Luke Staples
We are planning more of these events in the future, please check the website for details next year. Thank you to all the riders who supported the club this weekend, it was great for PR with fabulous feedback from the visitors who watched the event. I’m sure we will see some more new members soon. It’s amazing how many people have an old trials bike in their shed!
Most importantly, massive thanks must go to Mick and Luke Staples who have spent countless hours manufacturing the sections over the past few months, without them it would not have happened. Thanks to Craig Spencer and Colin Thompson who along with Mick and Luke took time off work on Friday to set up the trial. Massive thanks also to our own Peter Purves (only much better!) the one and only Jon Dent for his superb commentary throughout the weekend. (And for coming up with the idea in the first place!) Thanks also to Paul and Ben Mayes for their help including Ben’s photo’s.
On behalf of all the riders I would like to say thanks to everyone who helped make the weekend a great success!
Don’t forget, the next Trial is Manton on 14th Oct!

The club is looking for help in setting out trials on the Saturday before the event. Club members who are experienced in marking out trials could do with a hand with marking out the sections and clearing overgrown areas so different new sections can be set.
Even if you could only help out at one event per season it would be appreciated, although if you can do more all the better.
If you can spare a few hours the day before a trial to help mark out sections please see Colin Thompson or ring him on 01469 540678, he is organising a rota of volunteers for this seasons events.
