SILSDEN'S Jonnie Fannon was a category winner at Horsforth DMC's Bob Owen Charity Trial at Tong near Bradford.

Keiran Child won the trial at the Parkwood Offroad Centre outright which commemorates the name of a former president of the Yorkshire Centre ACU.

Eleven young girls and boys rode their own trial away from the main course where Fannon rode the hard route alone and won. Harrison Plant and Harrison Lightfoot headed the other classes.

The trial ran as planned with three laps and 14 sections but the scores for the last section vanished so after a very lengthy search event secretary Martin Fairburn took the decisions to post the results over 13 sections.

One year ago 15-year-old Bradford trials rider Child won the youth class at the 28th Bob Owen Trial. On Saturday Child won the same trial outright, beating some of the top local competitors.

His victory also gained him the top novice rider award.

Over the years the trial as donated thousands of pounds to charities. Saturday's event, supported by 101 competitors, will no doubt maintain the Horsforth club's excellent record.

Eleven-year-old East Keswick boy Harry Hemingway was also on a giant slaying mission. The youngster contested Class A Clubman, one step below the expert class, and won. That ride dispatched 40 other rivals. Ironically, his uncle is Silsden trials legend Dougie Lampkin.

Bradford Motor Club treasurer Stephen Wilde upheld club colours by winning the Clubman B from Mick Kettlewell and Mick Ward, who headed the over-sixties category.

The other Hemingway – George – the smaller version of the clan, took tenth place in the same class and, but for two failures in sections eight and nine, would have been right on target.
