Yesterday I was sorting out some stuff in my office when I came across an old VHS video from a few years ago, when we were riding at the “Ponderosa”  - it was early in the year with still quite a lot of snow on the ground, but it brought back great memories from when Barry, Luke, Joe and myself had so much fun practicing.  - On that day, Barry was on his 87 Beta Techno, Luke was on a Rev 3, Joe on an old Gasser, and I was on a Sherco.

The tape also had video of me out on the little 150 Gasser, which I promoted back in 1995 and the Beta Techno 1986 which was the start of my love affair with the Beta Brand.  quality is not great on the old tape, but so nice to see after a lot of years, unfortunately, none of those guys ride anymore.

There is also a clip from the National at Rocky back I think in 1994 ?  - it shows the one section that featured a steep drop down a muddy bank into a creek, with a log across, which caught me out on the 240 Gasser, and also Hugh Simpson who  followed my line !!!

Seems that I’m not the only one checking out old classic video tapes - have a look at this one.  SORRY THIS LINK DOES  NOT WORK


The Classic Trial put on by John Moffat in Scotland was a huge success, and featured special guest Bernie Schreiber, who also put on a Trials school.
