Trial Magazine - - SPORT - AR­TI­CLE: TRI­ALS ME­DIA

De­spite at times show­ing to be a lit­tle ner­vous on his first lap, Mitch Bright­more has soon set­tled down to im­prove as the day’s ac­tion has pro­gressed, in this year’s se­ries. This was the case at round six at the Hafren Trial in Wales. Just off the win­ning pace on the open­ing lap he ap­plied his skills to move up to the top of the leader board to even­tu­ally take a clear win from Char­lie Smith (Inch Per­fect Beta) and his near­est cham­pi­onship chal­lenger Gus Oblein. With his eyes on the ti­tle he went to Scot­land know­ing ex­actly what he had to do to take the ti­tle. Two tough days de­cided the cham­pi­onship in Bright­more’s favour as he won by a clear ad­van­tage on both days. The fi­nal cham­pi­onship points tally tells its own story. This new se­ries where the youth rid­ers com­pete with the adults has hope­fully given them an early step­ping stone on the path to suc­cess in the tri­als world, which be­comes much harder as you move up through the classes.
