IT’S RATHMELL VERSUS THE SNOW
The biggest story in the paper was the five pages devoted to the Scottish Six-day Trial. The marathon event, which put up with four-foot snowdrifts, sleet and wind, took in parts of Ben Nevis and made the most of the Scottish spring. The event was won by Malcolm Rathmell on a 350cc Montesa from Martin Lampkin on a Bultaco. The winning margin was just two points and the following week we even had a double-page spread interview with the winner. Rathmell is now a Sherco trials bike importer.
