We had a call from Stan yesterday with all his latest news of the exciting trip back from Baja - He mentioned the pic I posted about a week ago with the name of the rider in the yellow pants watching Vesty in Scotland - seems that is Peter Willie from Victoria who was  on a close number to some of the super stars  (Stan was also in that group) That was in 1983 & Stan was on a Montesa - later that year I was able to put a deal together for him to ride one of the new Yamaha Mono-shocks through Walt Healy  and in 1984 he finished 13th in Scotland the best ever finish by a Canadian rider, –I guess these old pics are stirring up a lot of memories.

This is a really neat picture - but I wonder if any of these organizers have heard about the “Keystone rock”  - you move that one and the whole mountain comes down. - As a Trials guy - I have often looked at some fantastic terrain for sections - but then thought “What if”
