Here is a nice shot by Claudio of a Merlin rider - note the “Cheese-slicer” rims - outlawed by the FIM because they were deemed dangerous to minders. - Neat section.

I have to smile when I look at this old TY advt - Yup those Mediterranean bikes!!

The English Ladies Team - looking very happy after winning at the TDN in France - Emma Bristow (on the left) is now a 9 time World Ladies Champion.

And a good action shot of Alex Walton (TRS) at the TDN - The Canadian teams put in a HUGE effort to attend this event, and while they may have struggled a bit in this World Class environment - they gave it their all and did us proud, so hats off to both Teams and support staff,  plus lets not forget all the fund raising that went on behind the scenes headed up by Michael Traves. - No doubt the Quebec lads were a big asset being able to speak French, plus everybody else who helped make this happen. - Unless you have attended one of these  big International Motorcycle events, you have no idea just how mind boggling it is to be involved.


Quiz - What do the three former Factory Trials riders in the front row do now??

Answer to the Wednesday quiz - Philippe  Berlatier - The Bear — Only Harlow and Brett - guessed this.  He became famous for Tackling a big German Checker at a World Round because he didn’t like his score !!  The German won. Philippe got disqualified.

Berlatier is now the TRS Importer for France. and won the new very first FIM Vintage Trial last year - finishing 3rd this year.
