SA WOMEN’S CUP & DIENER/HOLMES SIDECAR TROPHY HEAD UP A HUGE WEEKEND!
The first event in SA motorcycling history to have the girls and women headline the event, the Rockhopping SA 2021 SA Women’s Cup & Diener/Holmes Sidecar Trophy for Trial, hosted by the Keyneton MCC headline a huge weekend of action, across many disciplines of the sport.
Being run on Long Gully Road at Angaston from 9.00am Sunday, this event also features free entry for spectators, who will be able to wander around between the sections and watch some of SA’s awesome trials talent.
Leading the way is current Australia #2 (2019) in Open Women and Junior Women U13, Lillie Yiatrou and Charlotte Cowan, with Lillie also a 2 time Australian representative, and the reigning MSA Rising Star. Also in the field is 2018 Australian U13 Champion, Alisha Harry and Under 11 #1 from 2019, Ashley Barwick, again showing how much SA leads the country in Junior Women.
And due to the nature of Trial, and only 1 bike on the course (section) at one time, juniors can compete in senior classes in direct competition, with the Sport Women (formally C Grade) Class being made up of all junior riders, Charlotte, Alisha and Hayley Stephen.
At the other end of the field, look for the Long sisters, Chelsea & Cadance, both riding in Junior B Girls in their first SA Women’s Cup in 2021, and with dad, Aaron, and grandfather, David, also in the field, it shows that Trial is very much a family affair!
The Diener/Holmes Sidecar Trophy will also feature a number of female passengers, led by 2016 Australian Champion, Melissa Rogers, onboard with Steve Rees, the very team that won the Australian Championship in 2016. Look out also for the husband & wife team of Adrian & Tanya Harry, and the father & daughter team of Greg & Anna Rogers (who are having their first ride together).
There will also be a full field of support classes in action, led by Trial 1 riders, and Australian Champions, Connor Hogan (and Trial2 World Championship competitor & multi time Australian representative) and Haydon Barwick, along with juniors Hayden Eardley (2018 U13 Australian Champion) and Carl Henschke taking it on in the senior classes, and a heap of junior riders in action as well – there will be something for everyone to watch!
Although there is free entry for spectators, there is no catering for this event, so bring a picnic lunch and sit under one of the many gum trees to watch the action.
The event will also be preceded by a Come & Try Day on the Saturday – at the same venue – from 10.00am to 4.00pm, mainly for the girls and women, but open to all.
