Wow ! that was great to wake up this morning to hear the rain pounding down !! something that I would have never said while living in the UK !!! - Lets hope it helps the fire situation near Oliver.


I got my latest Trial Mag from the UK yesterday, and noticed this blurb on the new electric start TRS Xtrack - it comes in 250-28 & 300 engine sizes, but if you want one, better call us, as they will be in big demand and limited supply.
No photo description available.


Who remembers the days when we had a few sections like this?

How about this neat pic of some American Trials legends  > Lane Leavett - Debbie Evans Leavett - Geoff Aaron, and Bernie Schreiber ( the only non-European to ever win the World Trials Championship and also the Scottish Six Day Trial) It was taken at a recent Trials school in the USA.

So how about this for a bit of a sobering thought - I just bought some Michelin  X lite tires for a group of friends, and as usual because of the high cost, I pass these on at basically my price - but on checking the suggested retail - did you know that a rear X lite is supposed to sell for over $400 !! and a front lite for over $200 ???  Crazy prices, and no wonder that Beta are fitting Dunlop to the Evos ( Which seem to work well at half the price)

Leigh Usher stopped by late last night, and strapped 7 tires to his roof rack for the trip home to Nelson - at least some of the local lads will have new rubber for the upcoming Trial at Ymir.
