What a wonderful day, 14 teams made their way to Argyle in central Victoria for the 2022 TdN Trial.
This year’s event was run as a Trial des Nations format, with teams of three riders, 16 sections and
two laps. With the best two scores of the riders counting for each section. First riders set of at
10.30am then the rest of the teams set of in three-minute intervals. The teams start time were
selected in a draw. Sections had to be ridden in order, this adds a little more pressure to teams when
another team rocks up to the section.
The feedback from the riders was they all had fun and found the format to be fantastic. This gave
the competitors a feel of what happens at the TdN.
I must also thank Benny and Noel for their efforts with fundraising for this year’s TdN team running
multiple BBQ’s. The effort they put in for this event was fantastic with Benny’s Italian inspired
burgers. They raised $540 at this event and $1330 all up. You two blokes are legends and fantastic
We also sold $506 of raffle tickets and $1400 from the trial - raising a grand total of $2446 for the event.
Big thanks to the Landowner Ron Dickinson, all the TCV members who helped with section setting on
Saturday, Glenda and Chloe for scoring and all the guys who pulled in the sections at the end of the
day. Also to Peter Arnold from Trials Sport for modifying his already brilliant program to allow such a smooth transition into the TDN style scoring!
