I was knackered at this point anyway and in typical fashion the bike hit the pipe just at the wrong time and completely got away from me....got to love a smoker...

Kev is obviously far too modest to mention this, but the printed results I received in the post say "Huge thanks go to Kevin Greening and the team from Surrey TRF for their help in setting out, marshalling and encouraging enough riders to make it worthwhile running the event"

This is an event that I've been doing almost every year since 1999. Back then, it was one of half a dozen or so annual 3-stage trials run by clubs such as Surrey Police MCC, Hampshire Police MCC, Civil Service Motoring Association, and it was common for the Army to enter teams of squaddies on hideously heavy Harley Davidson trail bikes. A few years ago the Army team entries ceased - I think they stopped using bikes and switched to quads instead - and for various reasons (increased land costs, lack of new blood) the other 3-stagers disappeared, leaving the Pathfinder on its own.

Those of you who took part in the Pathfinder at Deepcut just over a week ago will have no doubt enjoyed yourselves. It's a very sociable event, and it's all about learning to safely ride a course more quickly than you might have originally thought was possible. In my view, it mixes Trials and Enduro in such a way that there's something for everyone.

A couple of years ago, the Pathfinder was close to joining the other 3-stagers - entries were in decline, costs from Landmarc were increasing, the club's officials were getting older. Step forward Kevin Greening, with his boundless enthusiasm, and a gang of merry Surrey TRFers, and two years later they were having to declare the entry full at around 110, turning people away.

So I'd like to offer my sincere thanks to Kevin, and all who have helped out this year and last, for reviving this local event. Long may it continue.

Graham
