THE East Neuk Wobblers have displayed their two-wheeled dexterity again in the final round of their Club Championship at Drumcarrow.

After gales and rain a few days previously, the weather was fine, with sunshine in the early afternoon to warm up the riders.

The trials sections didn’t fare so well and the riders were treated to varying degrees of mud, with the ground getting more slippery as the day went on.

As expected, the mud was no obstacle for Neil Dawson, who registered an easy win on the A Route, with Stephen Baird second and Jim Tennant third.

Local riders who battled through the mud on the ‘A’ route included John Adamson of Colinsburgh, David Smith of Pittenweem and Paul Anderson of Leven, whose fifth place earned him second overall in the Club Championship behind Stuart Louden.

Thomas Rielly of Kennoway, Grant Stewart of Windygates and Iain Duffus from Leven also tackled the ‘A’ route challenges admirably.

In the Clubman Route, David Anderson of Colinsburgh took the win, with Rodger Summers of Kennoway close behind.

Other Levenmouth lads in the running were Lee Kennedy of Methilhill and Brian Dall of Lower Largo.

Iain Clark won his Pre 65 class on a Triumph Tiger Cub.

In the Youth categories, Gordon Peebles of Colinsburgh took the win on the Youth B (B Route), with Jamie Duffus of Leven third, Keiran Hay second in the Youth C (A Route) and Rory Hay winning the Youth D.

Malcolm Summers of Kennoway (pictured left) was second in the White Route.

The next Wobblers trial is on December 27 at Glenlomond, with beginners always welcome.
