Sad news from the Dakar, where Paulo Goncalves has died after a crash - he was in 4th position and a top contender finishing as runner up one year.

I had to admit that this post brought a smile to my face - maybe Dave Fair can sell them Trials bikes for when they set up residence near Victoria BC.

Your video for today >>  Shot in 8mm by my grandfather George Snowball.


Got to love this shot of Wales - Funny we never really appreciated the beautiful Countryside, when we lived there. - Maybe because it always seemed to be cloudy or raining !!. However, I loved riding long distance Trials in Wales. - The Land of my Fathers.

Bernie Schreiber will be the guest of honor at the 2020 Scottish Six Days in May - Although  I don’t think he will be riding - he will be on hand at the Parc Ferme  and will be the Official starter on day one. - This is a nice shot of Bernie on the SWM - he is the only Non-European rider to ever win both the Scottish and the World Trials Championship.  He makes his home in Switzerland. - ( Did you know he made one of the first downhill  Mountain Bikes, using a much modifed TYZ frame?)

Only a light dusting of snow overnight but lots to come, so they say - looks like they might even get some in Victoria !!! That should make the boys happy. ( Maybe Meghan will be out with the snow shovel)
