Huddersfield Falcon Motor Cycle Club

This famous motor cycle club came into being in the year 1952 after the Foyle brothers put an advertisement in the Huddersfield Examiner. The club “runs” got advertised in various motorcycling magazines. These runs began from the club patron’s garage at Oxford Street, Huddersfield.

The earlier month’s meeting was where the destination of these runs was decided. In 1956, after the development of an off-road interest, the club decided to join the A.C.U.

Various gymkhanas got staged from 1958 to 1968 at Greenhead Park in Huddersfield. The first ever open trial of the club was staged at the ancient Rising Sun Inn in Cartworth Moor. The club had membership of more than three hundred people in 2003.

As far as the recent history of the club is concerned, Simon Tyas has perhaps been its most popular successful rider. He started his motor biking career on cycling trial bikes. He was the winner of numerous B and C class youth championships in Britain.

Later primarily on GasGas machines, Simon won the famous Dick Farqharson National Trial (Dorset) as well as the Victory National (Wales). He was also the winner of the SSDT Ben Nevis Challenge award in 1992 as he finished in second place after Graham Jarvis. Besides these accolades and awards, he has also won two Scott spoons. He is a nine-time winner of the Club Championship.

For numerous years, Simon was helped and supported by Tony Kaye (B & B Motorcycles). Tony is an expert at the Yorkshire Centre and has also won the Club Championship a number of times. The SSDT is his most favorite event and he has participated in it 13 times! An excellent team was formed by Simon, Andrew Jackson and Tony Kaye as they rode for the prestigious Huddersfield Falcons, winning the 1994 and 1998 Yorkshire Centre Team Trial.

The club hosts motor cycling trial events today for all age groups. There are specific courses and events targeted at junior beginners and then there are Yorkshire Centre events organized for the professional riders.
