A new class was introduced in 2017, Twinshock who used the Hard Route in the series, and this was won by Steve Peak.
ACU South Midland 2017 Trials Championships
This years Adult Championships were to be 6 rounds with dropping one score. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the final round due to bad weather conditions and safety at the venue. It is not possible to re-run the trial on another date so this round has been cancelled. The ACU rules stipulate that Championships have to be calculated on the number of rounds held. So this year’s results have been calculated on the 5 rounds held and riders have to drop their worst score.
It has changed the winner of the Expert and Intermediate classes.
So I would like to extend my congratulations to the following riders who are our 2017 champions :-
Chris Koch- Expert class
Jason Clifford – Intermediate class
Christian Hatcher – Novice class
All good wishes and I look forward to the 2018 season.

2017 Novice upgrades
I would like to congratulate the following riders who have all this year won 3 or more Novice classes and therefore qualify to upgrade their Novice status.
So for 2018 you will either have to ride as an Intermediate and ride the 50/50 route or as Clubman and continue to ride the yellow flagged deviations.
So well done too:
Christian Hatcher 2017 South Midland Novice Champion
Look forward to seeing you in 2018!
