NORTH BERKS SUPER TRIAL ROUND 2, 20th AUGUST 2017
Very much an instigator of the ‘Supertrials’, the North Berks club has provided the entertainment for over a decade with some excellent events, and 2017 was no different. The mixture of man-made hazards, including the mighty waterfall in the natural area of Seymour’s Arena, is the ideal venue to keep the crowd entertained. Showing why he is still Great Britain’s best world championship rider James Dabill, with his minder Jiri Svoboda from the Czech Republic, was head and shoulders above the rest, especially in the final. Dan Peace was once again on form to keep in front of young Toby Martyn, with Sam Haslam really on the game in fourth.
