Latest Update from the ACU

The Below is the latest advice from:

Neil Doctor
Assistant General Secretary ACU.

As we carefully steer ourselves through the current pandemic of Covid-19, the UK Government and the respective devolved governments have and will continue to ease restrictions (subject to their not being a second peak of the virus) which will allow our various sports to commence. 

We have now issued risk assessments templates which gives guidance/advice across all disciplines about the various Control Measures to be put in place to mitigate, as far as is reasonably practicable, any risk to our volunteer Officials and our competitors.

Furthermore, Organisers are to be mindful that as is currently outlined in the various Standing Regulations for our Sports contained in the ACU Handbook and in the National Sporting Code under article 8.02 in which it states ‘No competition shall be promoted on either a public or private road, track or elsewhere until the Organisers have obtained the necessary lawful authority from the appropriate public authorities or private individuals and landowners',  all necessary notifications/permissions should be obtained from Local Authorities/statutory authorities (police), local hospitals that an Event is taking place, and/or have written confirmation from the Circuit/landowner that the necessary permissions are in place for the Event to commence.   

We have all seen reports of police turning up at events in recent times and we have seen reports of Organisers who are not affiliated to the ACU blatantly disregarding UK Government Advice and Guidance which has undoubtedly put Off Road motorcycle sport in a poor light.

Finally, please remember that until the UK and devolved Governments lift restrictions on camping and overnight accommodation, planned events should be restricted to one day events to eradicate overnight stays.

Please help us to help you restart and organise the sport and in doing so let us work with the respective Authorities and furthermore not attract unwanted or bad press to motorcycling.

 

Novice & Beginners Third Round

Slightly less greasy conditions for the third round in our N&B series. Judging by the score sheets; section 3 was the one to clean today, but only one rider managed it, that was Chris Johnson and together with only 2 single dabs; that gave him an easy win on the main route today.

Also doing a good job on this one was Mick Kettlewell losing just one five here gave him the win on the 50/50 route.

On the beginner's route 3 riders tied for first place all losing a maximum on this one section and no marks lost elsewhere meant they were inseparable and therefore share first place. A very unusual result!

As an interesting aside 4 of the 5 winners today are all riders over 60, make of that what you will!

Novice & Beginners Second Round

Following "The Deluge" the ground at Post Hill was in a very greasy condition, which meant the chances of someone going clean today was slim, however Paul Kettlewell came close losing only 2 marks.

Mr TrialsUK, Nige Pearson, doing a good job on the 50/50 route, losing 22 to take the win on this route.

On the beginners route it was Ged Fallon who came out on top for a repeat of his last result on New Years Day.

 

The March of Time

As time passes we all get older even West Leeds club officials, hard to believe – right!

Some of our officials are well past retiring age and we now need some computer whizz kid to start learning the ropes of the stuff our present trials secretary and webmaster deals with – basically results + website maintenance and design. Various systems are in place which without any instruction our present club officials would find unfathomable!(no disrespect). Are you up to the challenge? Do you know anything about spreadsheets and web programming? We would love to hear from you!
