Testing Trial.
« on: June 14, 2018, 09:45:16 am »
Well I have entered the MCC Testing Trial and Liuda well also be there running about on her Chinese 125cc Army Bike. 😃
I am campaigning my Beta Alp 200.
As usual the Rat Island Hospitality Tent will be up for friends to shelter from the sun/rain between rounds and to provide a base for those that arrive on their bikes and need somewhere to put their gear. Free drinks as usual.
Look for the Rat Island Flag.
See you there.

No she won't, the only vehicles authorised to move about onsite during the event are the competitors and the organising team.
I am sure we can find her an enjoyable marshaling slot tho'
(or she could enter in her own right)

Oh dear she will be a bit disappointed.

Surely visitors have to drive or ride onto the site?

Maybe she can ride from one section to another to see if everything is OK in an official capacity every so often?

(I hope the Marshalls can speak and understand Russian).

She is still learning so I figure tho she is a full MCC Member Competing may be a bit much for her.

Just get her to enter and compete; she can take her time and the off-road experience will enhance her road skills.

It's a bit like chucking your kids in the deep end of the pool to teach them to swim.  Alright, you might lose a few and get fewer Father's day cards, but some are going to make it  :).

Blooming heck Paul, have you got any kids left ?  :(
Glad you weren't my dad.
Mind you, you would have to be pretty old to be my dad.

No intention of loosing Liuda. However she is very much a novice and needs to do a bit of practice with no pressures..
