Seeing this pic of a French Trial from 1983 that was cancelled due to the snow, reminded me of the 1971 Western Canadian Championship Trial that I set up at Bragg Creek  Hot-Hot all week then big snow on the Saturday night - Riders from Ontario and other Canadian Provinces plus a few Americans.  - SO the show had to go on, with me leading the groups over the 30 plus mile course as everything was covered in about two feet of snow.  John Jones Ex pat living in Ontario took the win.


A great shot of Bernie Schreiber back in 1983 at the Spanish World Championship - Bernie just posted this pic from 40 years ago - Glad that he is now taking an interest again in the Vintage Trials scene.

Answer to the Friday quiz - correctly guessed by a number of people -BSA = Birmingham Small Arms.  - because they were making rifles before motorcycles
