The KIA National Twinshock Trials Championship continues this Sunday with round three of the 10-round series to be run by the Congleton club at their well-known Mow Cop venue. This was the scene of the first ever KIA National Twinshock trial back in 2014.

And just like the first two rounds, staged by Aqueduct (170 riders) and Lancs County (130) Congleton has attracted a full house entry with 150 contenders booked-in to contest the eight classes. These are Expert and Clubman categories for four machine classes which are Historic Spanish (inc Pre-78 Twinshock, Twinshock, Pre-72 Britshock and Air-cooled Mono.

All the usual KIA suspects are entered, such as Richard Allen, Ian Peberdy, Martin Gilbert, Steve Bird, Ossy Byers, Dave Wardell, et al, plus some welcome new faces eager to join in the fun. The redoubtable Dave Thorpe turns out on his Britshock Cub while Chris Alford should shake-up the Air-cooled Mono class. Local Triumph twin mounted ace Rob Bowyer should also make his mark.

Start time is 10.30am and riders will be started at four per minute, two going to section one and two heading to a section further round the course just to help alleviate queuing.

All is set for another cracking trial and the venue is Lime Kiln Farm, Mow Cop, ST7 3PP.
