As many people will know, Steve Howland from Moncton NB - Has been the Beta Importer for Canada for the past few years, and is once again doing a cross Canada tour to promote the product, - with the main emphasis being the Enduro bikes that have really taken off all over. - This is a huge undertaking to drive across our vast Country  for the second time. - Steve will be in the Okanagan this weekend, offering free rides to Off road enthusiasts at the Vernon Squealing Pig Cross Country Race, and while we will not be there, due to the conflict with our long running Outlaw Trial ( now in it’s 31st year) - We hope that both the demo and race, go well.
At Outlaw Trialsport, we specialize in Trials bikes, and have been promoting the sport now since we got involved  in Calgary back in 1969, but we also keep a close eye on what is happening, in other Motorcycle events, and did quite a lot of Cross Country racing in the 1970’s - finally hanging up our leathers in 1986.

During this time we were working for Yamaha Canada, and were very involved in the development  of the “IT” series - great times and much success.

In 2013, we brought in a Beta RR250 ( Mountain MC were still the Importer) and rode it a bit as a demo - fantastic bike, but like all the modern Enduro models, they are tall and cumbersome for an old guy.  -

However, in my opinion, the Beta range of race bikes, are second to none, so we urge anyone looking for a change of mount, to take the opportunity of contacting Beta Canada to give one a test ride, and Yes - we can supply. We have been a Beta Dealer since 1993.

In other Beta news - check out this Press Release following last weeks Scottish Six Days, at which James Dabill was robbed of the win when his rear Tire came off the rim in one of the last sections.


SSDT 2018.

Beta had a very successful SSDT with James Dabill taking a very close second place to his friend and rival Dougie Lampkin after leading until the end of the week. Beta riders also filled four of the top ten positions. Ben Hemingway won the best 4T award, Jiri Svoboda won the best newcomer and Joe Dawson the best 125cc award.

Beta had 98 riders from 282 starters this year, over a third of the entry. This shows the confidence riders have in the Beta Evo which has proved itself as being able to stand up to the extreme SSDT conditions.

After having great weather in 2017 it was unlikely the Scottish trial gods would be kind again to the riders so the bad weather at the start of the week was a tough test for both bikes and riders. We pride ourselves on providing a good service to all our Beta riders and it is always a pleasure to work with Beta riders from all over the world.
