The Richmond Motor Club have had no option but to cancel the annual Youth Training Training School.

It was scheduled for July 31/August 1, however flood damage at Lawrence Allison’s Cogden Hall Farm and other road damage have forced road closures in the Grinton area and this has given organisers Vicky Andrews and Pam Braithwaite no options at this time.

They hope to find an alternative date in August to get the school back on track.

Trials Guru and the wider trials community send our sympathies to landowners and farmers at this very difficult time of flash flooding in the North Yorkshire Dales.


Since the ravaging floods of July 30th 2019, much has been reported in the national press and television.

The Richmond Motor Club (Yorkshire) Ltd have since called a meeting of members and committee as they regularly make use many areas of farm land and moorland in the Reeth/Grinton/Richmond area and are keen to make a contribution to the plight of local landowners.

It is believed that the club are keen to mobilise help parties of club members and trials riders to effect a clean up and support operation on a local basis.

Club members have been asked to check the RMC website for details of club activity in this regard.
