An old friend sent me a bunch of pics that he took at the 1975 FIM Trial  held in the Bragg Creek area. - While this was a long time ago , the event is still quite fresh in my mind, as it took me the best part of a year to plan and set up the long 69 mile loop and 40 sections.  - It  was nice see many top riders, post on FB, that they thought it was a great Trial.

Here are a couple from the album - The top one, shows Terry Healy (standing) not sure who is next - then you see Murray Nutt, Manuel Soler, Mick Andrews and Martin Lampkin.

The pic below is of the late Kelvin Marshal.  - Note the number of Canadian riders in the results. - Today there are none competing at the World level.
