TELLING TIMES FOR MILLER’S RIVALS
Lawrence Telling had a mountain to climb on his Montesa. Not just at this trial in Belgium but with Sammy Miller (right) , who was dominating trials at this time. Miller went on to win the European title in 1970 (there was no world title then), while Telling ended the year third in the table. Miller amassed 11 British trials titles and more than 1200 event victories in a career spanning over 50 years. He’s 83 now but still very active and running his superb museum in Hampshire.
