There is a Vintage Trial being held this weekend in Switzerland - Bernie Schrieber posted this report after day #1


Kufstein, Austria 🇦🇹 A-Cup Day #1
Great to be back on the pegs again and connect with Trials friends after a long lockdown. Motor Sports Club Kufstein truly hosted a professional and enjoyable A-Cup event at a first class venue, with about 150 participants from Austria, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. There were several different classes and bike categories being challenged by 30 very well designed sections. A special thanks to Frank Ortner, Arnold Kremlicka and Alfred Wagner for the superb hospitality, organization and kind invitation. I’m already looking forward to riding tomorrow and improving my score. 😀
Here is a quiz for you - This is the first UK rider to win the European Moto X Championship - But who is it?

It’s a big weekend at the Sammy Miller Museum where they are hosting a Harley Davidson day - This old 1928 model arrived pulled on a trailer by an even older car called a Maudling !  -  No I had never heard of it either.
Waiting to see the results of the Moto GP race from Jerez Spain - Marc Marquez broke his arm last weekend when making a remarkable come-back after going off track when leading, only to have a big High side near the end - He had surgery and a plate put in on Tuesday and THEN tried to ride this 2nd race of the series, but wisely called it off, when the arm just  wasn’t strong enough while trying to qualify,  - these Moto GP racers are tough.
And here are the results - Yamaha sweep the podium.

🥇 Fabio Quartararo
🥈 Maverick Viñales
🥉 Valentino Rossi
It’s going to be hot again for the next few days - in the mid 30’s in our Valley. - Next weekend the August 1st long weekend should have been the ATRA Cow Patty Trial, but we have not heard anything, so assume they have cancelled it.
