White Rose Ramblings

Leading off the field this year, West Leeds clubman rider, Richard Pearson, headed off into the brilliant sunshine with a contingent of riders from Jersey in tow.

147 out of the 164 riders entered turned up to ride this year which was a warm bright day and perfect trialling weather for both riders and observers.

With the Peace brothers riding it was the elder brother Dan who took the win on the White Rose Course losing a single dab.

On the 50/50 route it was fairly close marking at the top, but Hillsborough rider, Gavin Black, just held off Richard Williams to take the win on this route.
Repeating his win of two years ago, Scottish rider Alan McDonald took top spot on the clubman route, not having a single five certainly helped him, and being an early number just goes to prove that an early number is not a disadvantage.

Katy Sunter was once again the best female rider and riding the 50/50 route.

We have had lots of positive comments, with some riders writing glowing reports, thanks to all for those.

Trial History

Back in 1958 Reg Roberts a West Leeds member became disillusioned with riding small course events and dreamed of running a one lap long distance trial.

After over two years of planning, obtaining permissions, plotting sections etc the first event was run as a West Yorkshire Group trial.

The trial was originally named the Dancaster Trial, named after the first President of the club, Harry Dancaster, in 1947. This name remained until 1976 when the trial was awarded national status and the White Rose Trophy was donated by the Royalty Inn, which was the pub in Pudsey where the club met for their business meetings at the time

Having run two years successfully as a group trial the event was then upgraded to a Yorkshire Centre trial for the next ten events.

The club was keen to run the event as a national trial, but before that could take place the event had to run as a Regional Restricted for 3 years.

These 3 events were vetted by an ACU steward from each of the three invited Centres, who confirmed that the event was of a good enough standard to be run as a national, and so the White Rose was born.

Awarded a National status in 1976.
