Great Bri­tain’s fu­ture as a lead­ing trials nation just gets bet­ter, look­ing at the amount of ris­ing talent that is com­ing through the ACU youth sys­tem. The five classes re­main very com­pet­i­tive, as you will see with the lat­est cham­pi­onship po­si­tions. Greeted by calm warm weather, the Min­tex Trial always has an air of ex­cite­ment about it, and this year was no dif­fer­ent as the class of 2019 in­cluded a su­perb en­try of 56 young rid­ers.

A Class

Look­ing very con­fi­dent is Jack Dance with the up­per hand at three wins from the four rounds, only in­ter­rupted by Reece Gaz­zard. The fight for the fi­nal step on the podium looks like it will be a very close one, with Ross Gal­loway hold­ing the up­per hand at the mo­ment over Har­vey Taglione and Cameron Brice (Beta).

C Class Stan­dard Wheel

Win­ning all the rounds to date Ge­orge Hem­ing­way has one hand on the 2019 ti­tle and has shown a su­perb ma­tu­rity in his rid­ing, re­main­ing con­sis­tent and fo­cussed to take the full house of wins. Take noth­ing away from the fight for the runner-up po­si­tion between Jasper Fox and Euan Sim, this will go all the way to the wire.

B Class

The B class story repli­cates the A class, as the fight for the top spot re­mains very close between Bux­ton-based Harry Turner and the el­der of the two Hem­ing­way broth­ers Harry. Young ‘Hemmo’ broke the win­ning run of Turner at the last round, and it will be in­ter­est­ing to see the out­come in this ti­tle race.

C Class Medium Wheel

Small in stature but big on talent, both El­liot Smith and Stan­ley Cub­bon con­tinue to trade blows with one another in the fight for the 2019 ti­tle. Smith has the up­per hand with the four wins to Cub­bon’s sin­gle one, but they both know that they will have to be rid­ing at their very best as the cham­pi­onship ap­proaches its con­clu­sion.

D Class Medium Wheel

Fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of his el­der brother, Max has dom­i­nated the 2019 se­ries which is re­flected in the 100% win­ning record. Con­nor Wat­son has kept the pres­sure on but has let Dance pull out a clear lead. Will the Dance and Hem­ing­way broth­ers dom­i­nate the cham­pi­onship as it con­cludes? We will have to wait and see.

D Class Small Wheel

Ab­so­lutely wide open is how we would de­scribe the D Class small wheel cham­pi­onship. What else can you say, when you have four win­ners from the five rounds con­tested? Ja­cob Wil­son heads the field but with wins also from Tom Gib­bins, Ma­son Craw­ford and Bobby Crab­tree, who will come out on top of these OSET rid­ers to take the 2019 ti­tle?
