Shattock Run, Cambrian Rally, Beacons, Eppynt, MX & Bonfire nights. He
thanked Peter Brookes for his liaison work with Forest Enterprise. He
explained the implications of the new ACU membership/licence scheme &
proposed that WTRA membership for 2001 should be free. Organisers would
have their ACU membership paid by WTRA. Club night attendance has dropped
off recently & Bob suggested that the club should move back to the
Cross Inn near the Gabalfa flyover in Cardiff. Derek Barton - Treasurer -
reported that the club's savings had fallen from £15,000 to £10,000
partly as a result of the £3,000 loss on the Beacons but club had
acquired assets such as the quad, trailer, chainsaws, clocks, etc. Social
Secretary/Liaison Officer - Chris Lee - was absent but sent news that he
was preparing the Giveaway Raffle & Curry Evening. Right of Way
Officer - Stuart Dodswell - reported the new Rights of Way Bill had become
bogged down with over 300 amendments. Sports Secretary - Peter Brookes -
reviewed the club's 4 successful events in 2000 & thanked everyone for
their efforts. The start of the 2001 Snowrun will be in the top quarry
near Cefn Ludlow. The Cambrian Rally will be Easter Monday as the Army
range is booked on the Sunday. The Beacons will start in the quarry off
Gardiner's Way on the Army range. The Eppynt will be reversed. Entry
Secretaries for 2001 will remain: Keith Davies - Snowrun & Beacons,
Bob Jeffries - Cambrian Rally, Bob Mullins - Eppynt. Membership Secretary
- Ian Preece - reported that the club had 250 full members. Any other
business: The club is looking to purchase a container to permanantly store
equipment in Llandovery. Paul Davies volunteered to be responsible for the
store. Representatives of the club will be attending a meeting of the ACU
in Rugby on 2nd December. The meeting is being held to discuss the lack of
Championship rounds in 2001 but club members will take the opportunity to
expressing their concern at the ACU's apparent lack of progress towards
ISDE 2003. Prior to the election of officials, Bob Jeffries announced he
would like to stand down as Chairman. Peter Brookes proposed that Bob be
made President of WTRA to mark his tremendous contribution to the club.

The 75th International Six Day Enduro took place in Granada
between 31st Oct & 5th Nov against the dramatic backdrop of the
snowcapped Sierra Nevada mountains. 530 riders (motoladero) competed over
a course that covered 214kms on days 1,2,5 & 243 kms on days 3,4. Day
one began with Stefan Merriman recording the first test of that day 7
seconds faster than the next rider. Meanwhile on the highest point of the
whole course - 2000m. above sea level between control 1 & 2 - problems
started to build up as motolanero 220 onwards queued on a blocked climb
which began to resemble a smouldering hill fire with steam
rising into the thin Sierra Nevada air. The same loop Day 2 was less
of a problem. The rules on "outside assistance" were very
strictly applied with 5 riders excluded on the 1st day for allowing an
assistant to lube their chains. On Day 3&4 the course went northeast
of Granada over some sceinic landscape. Between control points 3 & 4,
2 switchback climbs which had become greasy after overnight rain proved to
be a challenge for the field. After No1 Juha Salminen cleared the top of
the 2nd climb 10 minutes passed before a trickle of muddy motoladeros
appeared including some tough British trial masters. The rest of the
controls although ridden were wiped from the results.
As with the 1999 ISDE in Portugal, the final day was cancelled as dust on
the MX tests was considered to be dangerous.
On the whole a fairly tough event with nearly all of the British
riders finishing including Patsy Quick the only lady to do so.
The overall winner was Stefan Merriman & the runner up was Mika Ahola.
33 nations competed for the Trophy: Italy (1st), Sweden (2nd), Spain
(3rd). The British team was 9th. In the Junior Cup the winner was Spain
(GB 8th). 86 teams competed in the club class, Wales A was 19th &
Wales B 28th. The Best Manufacturer was KTM. Chile won the Watling Cup.
Juha Salminen won the 125 Class. Best Britsih 125 was Edward Jones (36th
gold). Other 125 GB finishers: Steve Roper (gold), Dylan Jones (silver),
Andrew Edwards (silver), Simon Evans (silver), William Jones (silver), Wyn
Hope (silver). Mika Ahole won the +175 class. Best British +175 was Paul
Edmondson (6th gold) ahead of David Knight (7th gold). Other +175 GB
finishers: Wayne Braybrook (gold), Euan McConnell (gold), Mark Vaughan
(silver), Craig Bounds (silver), Neil Williams (silver), Jonathan Williams
(silver), Derek Little (silver), Ian Harkes (silver), Andrew Elliot
(bronze), Patsy Quick (bronze). Matteo Rubin won the 250(4s). David Johns
was 16th (silver). Other finishers: William Buchanan (bronze), Gary
Wigston (bronze). In the 400 class Jason Fraser was 23rd (silver). Other
finishers: Stephen Hunt (silver), Nicky Beavitt (silver), Darren Wilcox
(silver), Peter Burke (bronze). Ander Eriksson won the 500 class from

2001 to seek additional sources of sponsorship/funding to
allow the event planning to develop to a positive
conclusion. "We all want to see the ISDE back in Wales after a
gap of 20 years. It is the most prestigious off-road event worldwide
in the annual FIM calendar & we are not about to sacrifice the
work & effort over the last two years when there is still
the possibility of raising the required outside financial
support that we need." Alan King. UK FIM representative.

The Championship Debate
The aspect of Enduro which annoys most people is the noise. It is the
persistent & increasingly high pitched whine that comes from the
Championship Class. An article & letter in TMX - criticising the Dyfi
- is an example. Andy Waters of Diss MC has posted the following reply:
I wish to respond to the letter in last week’s TMX concerning the recent
MWTR organised Dyfi British Championship Enduro. Irrespective of the
problems highlighted, I feel it quite unjust and not in the long term
interest of the sport to be so critical of an organising team that has put
so in much effort, for so many years. MWTR association, which consists of
a very small band of enthusiasts, mostly non competitive riders, have
freely given their time up to organise events such as the Ceri, Powys and
Dyfi for a period of 20 years or more. 95% of riders who have ridden these
events will tell you that they have had a thoroughly good day’s sport.
It is important that events such as this are not lost as result of
feedback given in a negative, rather than a positive manner.Having ridden
and organised events of various status for a number of years, I very much
doubt whether the author of the letter, and as a matter of fact, most of
the current Championship riders have any idea about the time, effort and
commitment that is required to run a British Championship enduro,
irrespective of whether it is successful. The author, I believe, was also
trying to compare the Dyfi with a short course, multi lap Fast Eddy event.
Having organised a hare and hounds event for a number of years, I would
like to emphasise that it takes less than 5% of the effort when compared
with the event such as the Breckland. In terms of profit for effort put
in, the short course event is a much better financial proposition.
However, like most clubs, we are not in the sport for profit and we are
prepared to run events that require a lot of effort for the benefit of
Whilst I would like to wish Paul Eddy every success with his venture, and
I am sure he will succeed, I can hardly support the statement by Jonty
that Eddy, with these events, has done more for enduros than the ACU has
done for 10 years. The concept of short course events are not new, some
clubs have been running them for many years. From a personal view, whilst
we still have land for ‘proper’ enduros available, we should make use
of it. The UK, and in particular Wales, has some of the finest riding
terrain in the world and the 500 riders who entered the recent Welsh 3
day, and 300 riders who entered Sunday’s fabulous Eppynt enduro, are
testimony of this. If we want to improve and develop our top riders, we
must retain ‘proper’ long course enduros – when did the Americans
who tend to specialise in short course events, last win the ISDE Senior
Trophy?In terms of Jonty’s criticism of the ACU, I would like to
stress we are the ACU, riders, officials and marshals. Having
attended meetings at Rugby, I can only tell from experience, that the
Trials and Enduro Committee are a very dedicated team whose prime aim is
the interest of the sport. Many times the attendance of ‘top riders’
have been requested for the Rugby meeting, in most cases, as with help in
setting out and clearing up events, very little interest has been shown.If
the British Enduro Championship is to survive, yes we do need to improve
standards of some events. Nobody would dispute this. However, to take this
forward, clubs need encouragement, support and more importantly assistance
in organising them, not negative feedback which is very easy to give,
without much effort.
Yours in Sport

Postscript: This year's WTRA Beacons British Championship Enduro took 6
months of preparation; 6 weekends of chainsawing, bridge building,
bulldozing; 40 members gave their time to marshal the event & the club
lost £3,000+. No member of the Championship Class offered to assist the
club in any way.

The Dyfi - 4th round of the ACU British Solo Enduro Championship - took
place on Sunday 6th August. Paul Edmondson won the 1st day before
retiring. The overall winner was David Knight.
WTRA Committee Meeting
A meeting of the committee of Welsh Trail Riders Association took place on
Thrusday 3rd August at the White Hart Inn, Machen. Present were Bob
Jeffries, Bob Perring, Keith Davies, Taff Davies, Peter Brookes, Bob
Mullins, Steve Williams, Derek Barton, Russell Preece, Ian Preece. After
the reading of the minutes, there was a review of the Beacons. Despite a
good entry, the club lost £3,000. The loss was result of new costs
incurred in re-instatement, bridge building & land use. The committee
expressed it's appreciation of the work done by Peter Brookes as Clerk of
the Course. The lack of expressions of appreciation by riders for the
organiser's months of paperwork & weeks of clearing will result in
events of this scale becoming rarer occasions. A proposal to incorporate
the Championship into the Eppynt - if Forest Enterprise land becomes
unavailable - was rejected as it might change the perception of a popular
Clubman event. The rest of the evening was taken up by a discussion of
future events in the light of a meeting on 5th July between Forest
Enterprise - managers of the Crychan - & representatives of ACU/Welsh
clubs. This website is temporarily complying with the FE direction to
refain from publishing any information regarding FE proposals to further
restrict WTRA access to the Crychan. An ACU meeting to discuss land access
will be held on the 12th August.
ISDE 2003 Forum
A Public Meeting was held on Thursday 22nd June in the Metropole Hotel,
Llandrindod Wells to discuss the plans for the forthcoming Welsh 2003
International Six Day Enduro. The meeting was chaired by John Collins as
Ted Bartlett & Frank Carter were unable to be present. 25
representatives of Welsh clubs attended including Geriant Jones, Malcolm
& Annie Bates, Vic Madeley, Elwyn Price, Mike Davies, Mike Kilvert,
etc as well as WTRA members Peter Brookes, Bob Jeffries, Steve Williams,
Bob Mullins, Taff Davies, Julian Bishop, Colin Jones & Derek Barton.
In his introduction, John Collins emphasised that this was not a WTRA
event & it's success would require the co-operation of all the Welsh
clubs as well as agencies outside Wales. Alan King then outlined the
history of the proposal from WTRA's initiative to the Cambrian Council in
1998 up to the FIM acceptance against counter bids from Brazil &
Finland in February this year. Peter Brookes then presented the proposed
route for Day 1-4. The start will be in the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth
Wells. The Day 1 route will be 2 70 mile laps of the Eppynt Army ranges
reversed on Day 2 & Day 3 will be in the Crychan reversed on Day 4.
The Day 5 & 6 routes were left open as a opportunity for the Mid Wales
centre to become involved. At this pinot the meeting was opened up for
discussion. Subjects discuss included: the budget - the ACU has agreed to
underwrite the event which will be approx. £500,000, erosion, the
advantage & disadvantage of a long/multi lap course - the FIM
refuelling rules favour multi lap courses, flooding of the showground,
event insurance, television & sponsorship, the selection of a Clerk of
the Course, etc. The Mid Wales representatives then voted to promote the
event within their individual clubs & it was agreed that another
meeting should be held in 6 months.

Welsh Motorcycle Federation
The Cambrian Council for Motorcycle Sport has changed its name to the
Welsh Motorcycle Federation. The new Enduro committee chairman is David
Vaughan (an ex ISDE team manager & father of Mark) & Aitch Lewis
is the vice chairman. Kenny Williams is confirmed as Welsh Team Manager
for the 2000 ISDE with Mike Davies as his assistant.
Is it Art?
Alan Taff Davies recently took this picture of a piece of last year's
World Round marking containing over 20 staples. He considers it to be the
work of a primitive but closer examination reveals it to be a much more
important collaborative work. The combination of post modern
Neo-classicism & Pre-war German Expressionism creates an installation
that is resonant of Man's eternal struggle with Nature. It was included in
the Beacons Exhibition & is enigmatically entitled Straigth On - Day
Time up for cards?
Paul Edmondson held an invitation "PR" session on Easter Monday
at Brownhills motocross circuit to introduce a new sponsor - OTR
lubricants in partnership with IPONE - to his Fast Eddy series. Vic
Madeley's Cambrian Timing took the opportunity to demonstrate the new
timing system that will be employed in the series. Bar codes on the
rider's helmets are scanned with a hand held reader as they pass through
the control. The time & rider's details are instantly radioed &
stored on computer. It was a very impressive demonstration in the muddy
Aprillia is off the menu
Riders should be advised that - according to page 49 of the Aprillia RSV
Mille owners handbook - "the vehicle is made up of non edible parts.
Never bite, suck, chew or swallow any part of the vehicle for any
reason". As a healthier option riders who eat their machines might
like to try an RMX in a black bean sauce but you'll feel like another one
half an hour later. You can roast a big British thumper like a Rudge for
Sunday lunch or you may consider a lawnmower as an organic alternative.
Old strimmers can be very stringy. Bon appetite.
Rights of Way
A Bill entitled 'Improving Rights of Way' received its second
reading on March 20th. It will not improve your rights.
Filling in an Entry Form
Following the Snowrun, WTRA received several complaints from competitors
that they had been entered in the wrong class. This was the result of the
organisers making the classic mistake of using the information supplied by
the rider & not looking beyond the physical reality of the form for a
deeper meaning. While the organisers develop their clairvoyant skills
riders could help by filling in their entry forms correctly. If you have
difficulty filling in a WTRA entry form do not hesitate to ask for help
from a four year old child.
