Another nice Bultaco pic - this time of a couple of their Road racers - Did you know that the great Barry Sheene began his career on one of these?

Nice pic of Ross Danby on the TRS at the Welsh Round of the British Championship a few weeks ago - ( That’s a pretty big “Up”) Ross won the Masters Class for 2018.

In Industry News - I see that Polaris sales were up this year, but Harley Davidson were down - No idea how other Manufacturers made out.


We received an email from Japan on Tuesday, from a guy who read the story on the blog, of my ride with the Fort Mac lads - turns out he used to ride Trials bicycles with Marris, when they were young guys living in Calgary. ( Like they say it’s a small World)


The Vernon Off Road Club are having a work party & BBQ - this Sunday up  in the Noble Canyon area  - You can see the poster on this by clicking onto the club website.


With the Ady & Pete Brown Memorial Trial just a few weeks down the road - I found this old pic, while looking through some files - it shows Steve Howland the Canadian Beta Importer, looking up at the section Pete and myself built many years ago. - The big tree has since blocked it off, and we have not used this area for any events, since the 25th anniversary of the Outlaw Trial. -  A couple of years ago, we put up a small plaque on this section to honor Pete, who died from Cancer, we called the section “Heartbreak Hill” after the famous section used in the Scottish Six Days for a long time.
