Cars, bikes and beach... Motorsport Guernsey style!

15th November 2015

Guernsey seems to be almost unique in allowing Trials bikes to ride around on its beaches. This helps to make the Guernsey 2-Day Trials Open events so popular with Jersey, UK and French riders.

Today I just managed to get to a section of the Trials meeting laid out on rocks in the pretty Bordeaux Harbour.

The rocky sections were a challenge as the Guernsey granite takes no prisoners. Its not a fair fight between Guernsey's finest 'hard stuff' and a bike frame... or worse, a riders bones!

However there were no mishaps whilst I was there :-)

That was not the case at the Autocross meeting at Chouet. We had roll-over after roll-over including a 'hospital run' for one unlucky passenger. All this drama meant the meeting had to be cut short and was also the reason I was late getting to the Trials.

But that's Motorsport, eh.
