Risby rider Doug Theobald was in top form to claim victory in the annual national trial, organised by the Sunbeam Motorcycle Club in Hastings.

Competing in a field of more than 100 competitors, Theobald adapted to the challenging course strongly to take hid 225cc Gas Gas bike to first place ahead of Yorkshire’s Paul England riding a 250cc Beta.

Nearer to home, Ixworth’s Kevin Plummer and Badwell Ash man, Doug Barrel — both riding Gas Gas bikes — competed in Ipswich MC Club’s trial, held at its Offten venue.

In a field of 35, Plummer excelled to take the win, while Barrel also hit form to take a close second place.
