Keith Davies Non Expert Trial on 14th August 2016
Hot holiday weather and other events in the area kept entry numbers low.
Mick Coles had set 10 sections, all with at least one Observer, that appeared harder to ride than they looked. A combination of hard sub soil covered with tree litter and then a puffy covering made grip hard to find.

About The Keith Davies Non Expert Trial
Initially named The Wick Hill Cup after the landowner and venue that hosted it. Introduced in the 1970s’ as a pukka Open to Centre Trial held at a great venue but aimed at Intermediate, Novice and Occasional riders.
In 2010 it moved to Noar Hill and became The Alton Non Expert. and then took the Keith Davies name from 2013.
Keith Davies was a keen motorcyclist and great supporter of motorcycle Trials. Keith worked tirelessly with good humour for many local Clubs.
Also an accomplished distance runner Keith used Noar Hill for both his hobbies. Following Keith’s untimely death the event took his name and gives sporting riders like Keith a chance to ride a premier venue & event.
Picture on right was taken by Keith’s dad John, and shows Wobblie Will riding in The Wick Hill Cup during the 70s’, showing the spirit of that Trial and The Keith Davies. Note the beginners riding kit of the time including the obligatory NCB wellies.
