Toni Bou makes it 13 titles. - clinching this at the French Round.

Check this out - A great shot, but isn’t this more like Moto X than Trial’s  ? -  I’m not sure where they are going with all this extreme stuff -  - Not that I’m saying the new breed of riders are not incredible, - they really are in another class - but I think this is Stunt riding - it  may find a limit pretty quick.
I  do feel that most events that we have held in Canada  for the past few years have catered to what Trials is  about - “Balance and throttle control”  - all about having fun - it’s a family affair !!

So yesterday, I watched the final round of the British Open Golf -in Northern Ireland, which was won by local guy Shane Lowry - the weather early in the day was terrible, heavy rain and strong winds, but would you believe that they had 273 thousand spectators  attend over the 4 days? - All to watch guys knock a small ball around. - In our sport, the Scottish Six Day Trial, always attracts big crowds, and the weather there is usually poor - the message being, that you don’t need high speed or extreme stuff to attract the fans.


A pic just popped up on FB - of the Beta that we loaned Sam King to ride while he was in Canada that first year on Holiday. - As everybody knows, Sammy later came back to live here full time, and we continued to support him for another three years, with both Beta and TRS. However, Trials is a very small business, and it costs a lot to help out a rider of Sam’s class, so we had to let him find another sponsor (GG) for this year. - He is a great lad and puts on some amazing Stunt Shows all across the Country, so if you see one advertised in your area, be sure to take it in.
