Jack will then head down south with Alan Honeybone for some site seeing before leaving NZ.
Jack Sheppard last made the trip to New Zealand in 2014. We are very fortunate that Jack takes the time to head out this way to share his knowledge. Jack 2011 Youth world champion & former top world round rider. This year is the first year he has not ridden the world championship circuit to concentrate more on riding in the UK British Championship.
Jack this year has had to do all his normal training on and off the bike as well working a full time job. It hasn’t seemed to have affected him to much with sitting in second position in the British Championship and taking a win a few weeks back over James Dabill. Also a very good 4th position in this years Scottish Six Day Trial.
If you get the chance to see Jack ride or get to one of his training days you won’t be disappointed. Jack is really down to earth and always up for a chat. Truly just one of the good guys

We are over the moon to announce that Jack Sheppard will be competing in NZ again at this years MTF NZ Moto Trials Championships!! Jack is currently running 2nd in the British Championship after 9 rounds, it is fantastic to have someone of Jack’s calibre coming to compete!!

Club Trial – Living Springs – 9th October

Club Trial – Living Springs – 9th October

MNZ Permit Number: 16439

The club’s thanks to Ross, Alan, and Shane for stepping up at very short notice to organize and run this event.  The day saw 20 riders turn up, however due to the very heavy rain that started about 10am and continued throughout the morning the section conditions became more and more difficult for the lower grades of rider, hence the large number of DNF’s

For those that stayed the course and great credit to them the link below shows the final scores for this event.
