2008 Scores  &  Awards

Cyril Kenchington was an Alton citizen and was general manager of Wrights, a road building equipment company (road rollers etc.) situated on the side road at The Butts, Alton. He was a good friend to Arthur Hay, one of our past presidents and a hard working club member.

The Cup was first competed for in 1952 as a motor cycle Trial starting from Wyck Farm (Mr Wall) and included a lot of road work. Competitors travelled  to Binsted with sections there, then across country to Priory Farm, Selborne (Mr Eddie Lucas). After those sections in the river etc., they went up to Wick Hill Farm (Mr Chapell) and then back to Worldham and finally Wyck Farm.

The Trial continued in this format with the late Bill Oliver as Clerk of the Course for several years until restrictions on competitors riding on public roads led to the Trial being set out entirely on private land. With the kind permission of Mr Beech of Priory Farm and Mr Chapell of Wick Hill Farm, this area became the home of Kenchington Trophy Trial.

Andy’s Garlickin good

With the Trial postponed because of THE SNOW the later date meant a carpet of slippy wild garlic had sprung up on the hill sides. Many riders found this distracting but Andy Blackman took it in his stride to claim the 2008 Kenchington Trophy.


To see Andy on his way to victory amongst the garlic look at the video below.. some nice tidy riding but check out the super long dab, that’s how you can win a Trial if all else is failing.
