We hope that everybody had an enjoyable Mother’s day whatever you did - for us it was a drive up to the Shuswap for a visit with our Daughter and Son in Law at their Vacation property. - Glad to say the weather was pretty good for the most part.

=======================================>

Lots of stuff on Social media after the Scottish - here are a few more pics >>

The Scottish Six Days Trial, has often been referred to as “A sporting Holiday in the Highlands”   and for the majority of riders, it is just that - a chance to enjoy a unique event, with 300 riders, in wonderful terrain. - Only a select few are able to compete for the top awards, it is that difficult, but for those who both ride or spectate, the memories will last a life time.  We look forward to hearing Stan’s stories from the 2022 event.

=========================================>

Nobody came up with the correct answer to our latest quiz. - The section called WD’s  - It is named after the great Willy Dalton (RIP) a Scottish Six Day rider and supporter for many years, who was still competing on a big Ariel into his 80’s. -  We saw some great video of this section last week, Jack Peace      ( Sherco) in particular was brilliant when the water level was high, cascading down over the rocks. - I’m sure Willy would have been proud.

=======================================>

Finally - It is the people who make this event possible - the observers, who are out in all sorts of weather, with no rewards - the club riders, who spend months setting up the routes and doing the flagging, so many who dedicate their time to make the Six Days a success. - John Moffat is a great spokes person for Nevis Radio and other aspects of Scottish Trials  -( yes there are others) .

Roll on 2023 - when we  will see another Lampkin make his first attempt at the Six Days, plus maybe  the young Hemmingway brothers. - Yes the future looks bright for this unique Trial.
