Wigg targets Colmore Cup glory

Winslow’s Alexz Wigg will compete in the Colmore Cup this weekend – the opening round of the ACU S3 Parts National Trial Championship, writes James Beckett.

Riding a GasGas machine, Wigg will start the Shipston-on-Stour based trial as one of the pre-event favourites.

Organised by the Stratford-upon-Avon Motorcycle Club, the Colmore Cup will be the first round of the 2014 ACU S3 Parts Championship following the postponement of the North Berks MCC managed Wallace Cup event that was scheduled to take place a fortnight ago.

A capacity entry will start Sunday’s event from the Sheldon Bosley Hub in Shipston-on-Stour, with competitors leaving the start at minute intervals from 9am.

Wigg will carry the number 111 on his GasGas UK.com entered bike, and all riders have six and a quarter hours to complete the course that will see them tackle various sections in woodland and off-road areas accessed by a route using the public highway.
