Toby Martyn gets his first win at the final round of the British Trials Championship


Well yesterday turned out to be an epic day for us in the Valley - Marris and Colum arrived from Fort Mac - and we headed down to Bear Ridge on what could only be described as a fantastic Fall day,.

We had a wonderful time  - but unfortunately, Marris picked up a flat when we were over on the far side, which had him doing the “Shane trail” down to the road, while Colum and myself rode back along the ridge to the trucks.
