KIRKBYMOORSIDE ace Dan Peace showed maturity beyond his 16 years in winning the Hull AC trial at Harwood Dale, Scarborough.

The British Youth 'A' Trials champion, riding for JST Gas Gas, starred in heavy, greasy conditions, overturning Andy Chilton's victory of the previous week to win by a clear nine marks.

His mastery - and last lap feet up ride on the plunge into the gully and then all out attack at the two monstrous rock steps to exit the last section - was a pleasure to witness, and no doubt helped him seal the win as Chilton lost 11 there.

Not to be outdone, Peace's younger brother, Jack - with his mum observing - was forced to ride the intermediate course.

He was not happy with that as he relishes a challenge, but he romped round to win the Youth 'A' class without losing a mark in a fantastic ride.

Will Wainwright, of Hovingham, and Pickering's Dave Wardell also shone.

Always at the top end of the results in the past few weeks, Wardell has been shaping for a win and he nailed the Clubman 'B' win.

He took it to the wire on furthest clean rule from young Sam Duvivier. Wardell lost his only mark on the twisting climb and roots of section nine.

Wainwright kept riders of the calibre of Andy Lockwood, Colin Bailey and Paul Dennis in that order in the minor placings to win Clubman 'A' class by a clear five marks.

Guisborough's George McGee, always passionate about the youth side of trials, ran a youth and beginners class which he hopes to do at all future trials.

A spokesman hailed "a marvellous day's sport for the club" that attracted an entry of 80 riders.
