Winner 2017

White Rose Ramblings

Horsforth club rider Errol Brown led off the field in the 2017 Trials UK White Rose Trial, starting number one on a very wet and windy day at Cam Head. Lots of squally showers the whole day and misty at least up at the start area.

In a reversal of fortunes Richard Sadler took the top spot from last year's winner Guy Kendrew by a 3 mark advantage.

The 50/50 route was once again won by the evergreen Philip Alderson, this makes his eighth consecutive win on this route.

Scottish visitor Alan MacDonald took the win on the clubman route from Katy Sunter who was the best female competitor and therefore takes the West Leeds Owl Trophy.

Despite the weather many competitors enjoyed the ride and made a point of thanking the observers for standing out in the atrocious conditions, which West Leeds Motor Club wholeheartedly endorse.


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 in 1961 known then as the Dancaster Trial was run as a West Yorkshire Group trial.

Having run two years successfully the event was upgraded to a Yorkshire Centre trial for the next ten events. The details and winners from these events can be found here...

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.
