Having already entered this trial I am gutted that due to illness I cannot ride. The Rickman championship series is one that I have never really done well in and with NT410 I was hoping to make an impression this year. It's hard to stay at home knowing that Dave, Teflon & Pete are all riding one of the finest trials in the country.
Still, it's not all bad news. Had the ACU Sammy Miller championship begun as per the 2010 schedule then I would have missed the first round. This would have effectively put me out of the championship running for 2011.
I turn my mind to the Cheltenham Home Guard Sphinx Trial on 17 Apr 11; hopefully, I will be back to fitness by then
I console myself watching the ICC Cricket World Cup match on Sky!
