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.
