THE annual Rene Smith Memorial Trial at Dob Park, Otley, was yet another well supported event with a hundred and thirteen competitors from all parts of the British Isles battling through the dense woodlands overlooking the River Washburn.

The title commemorates a remarkable Denholme lady who observed hundreds of motorcycle trials over the recent years.

The donations will be channelled to the Mental Health and Auto Cycle Union Benevolent Fund organisations.

East Keswick landscaper Ben Hemingway won the expert class from Leavening joiner Adam Milner and Rawdon's Sam Beecroft-Penny.

Meanwhile, the Spen Valley club staged their eight RAS Sport at the Parkwood Offroad Centre at Tong where 73 competitors battled for points in the closing stages of the championship.
