They do things differently over on the Continent, you know… two-day trials are much more of a social occasion as well as a competition and there are many popular events.
One of the best is the Costa Brava Two Day, on November 19-20 this year, which attracts riders from all over and includes a significant British contingent.
Entries tend to be at a premium and the list is filled pretty quickly - however there is a chance for one lucky rider to win for him/herself not only an entry to the trial, but transport for the bike and accommodation for the event as well as doing some good for Manchester Children’s Hospital and a charity for homeless children in the Philippines.
Trevor Bennett is hosting a raffle through www.Raffall.com and if you go to Trevor’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/trevor.bennett.397 you’ll find details of how to enter. The prize is described as follows: ‘Bike transport, flights to and from Barcelona, entry into the trial and accommodation for three nights’ and has a total value of £1000.
Tickets cost £25 each and the raffle closes on Friday, September 30 at 9pm or whenever the last ticket is sold - whichever comes first. The hosts say 100% of the revenue will go to charity. Let us know if you win.
