TELLING TIMES FOR MILLER’S RI­VALS

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

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.
