This Champ has Some skills, Never took to the dirt me, see dirt fall off & repeat.
Used to enter trials competitions up here in the NE, then single shock bikes came out and you could stop still and bounce around in a section, where before you got a 5.
Man has Skillz done some trials myself and those Montesa/Hondas arnt as easy to ride as he makes it look. Trials is a great inexpensive motorsport I regret selling mine but I needed the money to buy my pushbikes in a quest to lose weight.
Great skill eh!!
Off road is still my preference even at 63 I still love.
Raced off road seriously for 15 years competing in Trials Motocross and the occasional Enduro.
Even had my picture in TMX 3 times.
Did 10 years Pre-65 trials in the 1980/90"s on a 1949 James rigid-great little bike.Used to regularly beat some of the the "licra" posers on their Monos (easy route) in the slippery/boggy sections .Great fun.
Doesn't he just.
Says a real fan of Dougie Lampkin.
Watched him and the others do the worlds round in Andorra last year,truly awesome riding.
First trial I did I won my group took the red route and had my picture in TMX. I was lucky I had James Fry show me some technique he is a great rider himself and also Emma Bristows bf and minder. Had my name in it dozens of times for MX results.
And guess who was at the Copdock show last Sunday !!!
He has some talent for sure
Watched him in TDN in Switzerland a few years ago. Amazing rider
I love trial riding but can't do it now - dodgy knees and back
As I said I never gelled with off road, had a few crosser's for just messing around on, did a charity motocross once, a Enduro at Tavistock woodlands, managed 3 laps, completely knackered from picking the bike up Mind you I have gone off road at Brands (Graham hill bend & Surtees/Mclaren) Silverstone (Stowe!!!) Cadwell (Chris curve & Charlies 2) Donington (Craner Curves) to name just a few
Yeah I tried off roading at surtees amazingly I managed to keep in front of my mate and lap him,he never did a track day with me again lol
