EVENT ROUTES AND INFORMATION

Scunthorpe MCC currently have the following routes


Sections are set using coloured Markers and Start/End gate boards, the markers are placed in the ground so Riders can navigate the section in a certain direction, based on the Start and End Boards and Red & Blue flags - Red flags must always be on your Right and Blue flags on your Left. The sections have one set of primary markers, the Red & Blue (or Main Route) when these are the only flags present all bikes, regardless of route ridden, must pass through them. When a different set of flags, such as Yellow (or Club Route) or White (or White Route) are present you follow those instead. White route will follow Yellow flags when only Red & Blue and Yellow are present.

MAIN ROUTE (RED & BLUE FLAGS)

Made for Expert, Intermediate, Youths A & B and Novice riders who want something harder than a Clubman trial
but not as hard as a Yorkshire hard route

CLUB ROUTE (YELLOW FLAGS)
​Made for Novice, O/40, O/50 and Youth A & B & C Riders who want a challanging days riding but with minimal
risk

WHITE ROUTE (WHITE FLAGS)

Made for Beginners, P/65 and all Youth Riders who want something slightly easier that the Club Route

HOW THE SCORING SYSTEM WORKS

There are many different types of trials in the Uk, ranging from Non-stop national road events covering 60-100 miles per event with one lap, to local club events like ours which usually have 8 section and 5 laps only covering 5-15 miles. Meaning during one of our events riders will be expected to complete 40 sections in total. Bikes and riders are classified as in the section once the front wheel spindle of the bike crosses over the start line, and similarly are out of the section once the front wheel spindle crosses the end line.

NORMAL SECTIONS

 

Section Score = 0

  • No feet put down throughout the whole section

  • The rider stalls the bike but keeps both feet off the ground to restart the machine

 

Section Score = 1

  • One foot put down once throughout the whole section, or the following bullet point

  • Any part of the Rider came into contact with anything other than the bike once. Example – The rider leans
    their shoulder or helmet on a tree within the section

     

Section Score = 2

  • Feet put down twice, or both feet put down once at the same time throughout the whole section, or

  • Any part of the Rider came into contact with anything other than the bike twice. Example – The rider leans
    their shoulder or helmet on a tree within the section


    Section Score = 3

  • Entering a section before being called upon to do so by an observer/official


 

GRADED HILL CLIMBS

Numbered boards will be placed at defined places along the Section, in order that a rider’s performance may be determined. Marks will be lost in a decreasing manner from 5 to 0 depending on the distance a rider can traverse the Section without failure. The front wheel spindle is the part of the machine to be used in assessing the distance traversed.

Unlimited Footing is allowed without penalty.
