Classic Trial - - NEWS -

Thou­sands of off-road fans de­scended on Telford’s In­ter­na­tional Cen­tre for the Clas­sic Dirt Bike Show spon­sored by Hagon Shocks for Europe’s largest clas­sic off-road event. The halls were filled to the rafters with some of the very best off-road ma­chines from nu­mer­ous clubs and pri­vate restora­tions while the out­side au­to­jum­ble fo­cused on off-road sport was also busy.

The star guests – Ger­rit Wolsink, Colin Dom­mett, Peter Duke and Alf Hagon – caused a stir as they spoke about their ca­reer ex­ploits on stage with Jack Bur­ni­cle. Jeff Smith MBE also made the transat­lantic journey to sign copies of his new book at the show.

The cov­eted Best in Show prize was awarded to a stun­ning 1969 Jawa 420 mo­tocross bike owned by Bill Hen­son. Other week­end win­ners in­cluded a 1967 250 Greeves Anglian, which won Best Tri­als, and the West­mor­land Mo­tor Club, who won the Best Club Stand.

Event plan­ner Andy Cat­ton said: “The stan­dard of ma­chines on dis­play dur­ing both days of the an­nual show was again ex­cel­lent. I would like to thank ev­ery­one who at­tended the show in­clud­ing all our traders, guests, ex­hibitors and our loyal spon­sor, Hagon Shocks, who brought an im­pec­ca­ble col­lec­tion of his­toric Hagon bikes!”
