McQuaid Wins The Slemish Cup Trial




Our latest event was the JP Corry Slemish Cup Trial which was also the last round of the Michelin Club Series.  92 riders started at 10 30 am for 3 laps of 14 sections. Harold McQuaid took the overall win and the Mackness Slemish cup on 10 marks lost, 2nd place was Chris Brown on 42 marks lost. Other grade winners were Jake Hanlon in the expert grade on 58 marks from Andrew McCrory on 90 marks. Semi expert winner Philip Hanlon lost 17 marks and 2nd place Aaron Smyth on 31 marks. Clubman Philip McClurg made no mistakes and  went clean to win over Stephen Pyper on 7. the Sportsman grade was won by Allister Galloway on 7 marks lost the same as Mark Scott but Allister won on most cleans. Reece Gazzard took the McCosh cup and Youth A win on 35 marks lost from 2nd place Callum McAllister on 109 marks lost. History was made on the 70th anniversary trial by young Harry Smith who completed 3 laps of Slemish on a battery powered trials bike for the loss of 65 marks, well done Harry. The club would like to thank all the landowners, Mid and East Antrim council, officials and observers who made the event possible without them there would be no trial.
