TRIALS rider Jack Spencer had a day to forget when he contested round four of the British Championship.

The 23-year-old from Bacup crashed heavily on one of the opening sections, injuring his leg and finishing down in 49th place at the end of the first lap.

Spencer, who rides a Beta 250, recovered to finish 14th at the end of the event, held in East Ayrshire.

“It wasn’t a great weekend,” admitted Spencer.

“The crash put paid to any chance of a decent result, but on the plus side, I still managed to get a couple of championship points.”

Spencer’s next outing is round five of the British series, the St David’s Trial, organised by Neath MC.
