This is a tribute to young David Page, son of Ernie Page - brilliant Trials/MX rider and a dealer in Scotland - David died of cancer at a young age, when he was considered to be a future champion.  - I met Ernie Page in 1994 at the US World round -  he was with Mart Lampkin & helping a young Dougie try to get to grips with riding the Beta at 11,000 ft. ( Everybody had problems)  - I have seen a video of young David riding this very specially tuned (by Ernie) TY 250 and there is no doubt we lost a good lad through this terrible disease.
DAVID PAGE - Scotland

News out of the UK has the ACU changing back to Stop & Hop for British Championship events.  Yawn !! what a relief for the Observers !! -  It’s our opinion, that the only Trial that really still caters to the “Forward motion” rule - is the Scottish Six Days - where stopping in a slippery uphill burn ( Creek) usually results in a “5″ anyway.

This is a bit about Pat Horan ( Paddy) - who I first met in the mid 70’s while I was with Yamaha Canada, and he worked for the dealer in Nelson - We soon became friends, and remain so to this day. - Pat soon proved to be an excellent Cross Country rider, and would later be on our 1983 ISDE Team in Wales, riding a TT 600, (Which I borrowed from Walt Healy)  - That story alone would fill a couple of blogs.

Pat is a  big strong  man, of Irish background and still lives in Nelson, he has managed to get big heavy BMW bikes into places that are really only fit for Mountain goats ( or Trials bikes) - Although we rarely see each other these days, it’s always a pleasure to catch up on old memories.
