The Southern Experts Trial took place in the UK in what was a cold weekend, Steve Saunders was out supporting his riders.. ( As posted yesterday Steve would be happy with his riders finishing 1-2)

No caption for this one !! Except Merlin  was bought by Gas Gas  & then disappeared  ( bit like Ossa) The wheels they had were banned by the FIM as being dangerous for the minders. ( maybe this pic as well!)

Looking for Christmas presents ? these low pressure gauges are a great gift for Trials riders, and we have them in stock at $30. each.

We had a nice chat with Sammy on Saturday - he is back in Golden, and we caught up on his plans for next season. With the cold weather, he was asking about using studs in the Trials tires - so I gave him my thoughts on that - yes sheet metal screws can help in winter conditions, and with Beta now using Dunlop might be OK - but the soft Michelin Trials Tires rip up very  easy - ( and they are super expensive)  Back in the 70’s we used these a lot on our Enduro bikes in Alberta, riding the snowmobile trails out North West of Cochrane    ( The sled guys didn’t like that)  Of course back then sheet metal screws were really the only thing you could get for ice racing, but these days they have special studs.


Here are the results of the Bradford Club Trial yesterday - no real surprise to see who won - but look a bit further down the results and you will see a couple of young stars of tomorrow - Dougie’s lad Sam and cousin Harry Hemmingway.
