Classic Dirtbike - - Sporting Action -

Well, the regs say a pre 1971 mo­tor­cy­cle... or of a type made be­fore 1971. This odd cut-off date is to co­in­cide with the last time the event was run as a mod­ern event – these days it’s a clas­sic one. The bike re­ally should have some off-road equip­ment on, which has come to mean scram­bles trim... though grass bikes are ca­pa­ble of win­ning. There’s even been a scooter taken up and he didn’t dis­grace him­self ei­ther. This year there were a bunch of Har­ley rid­ers on Six­ties desert rac­ing mod­els all hav­ing a go, and there’s more than the odd rider who does what I do and whips the road tyres off and puts scram­bles tyres on a road bike to have a go. So there you are, fancy a go? It’s al­ways on Easter Mon­day.

Just how steep the hill is can be seen from this great shot. the su­per­class is rider is Also pic­tured in and do­ing quite well as usual Tim Dall­away. The Beezer su­perbly fast. Ooops, we’ve all been there and no, we’re not go­ing to say it was Rob Sil­ver fromten­bury­wells. Reg­u­lar fast lad at the event, Tim Man­ton – down as be­ing on a Jawa Wasp but that looks like a Beezer pri­mary case ( just move your leg so we can see, Tim) in the Su­per­class. At the end of the Su­per­class fi­nals the rid­ers turn round and ride down the hill, Tom Crump is in front, Tim Dall­away is be­hind while 329 is Jim Shand.
