What do you need?
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.
