Size means nothing
Looking back at the myth that is David and Goliath it proved the point that size means nothing. The small person taking on the giant, and we know who won! My good friend Eric Lejuene had mentioned in conversation in early 2017 to look out for a very talented young French rider named Hugo Dufrese. He laughed when he said: “You will have to look out for him”. I responded why? “Hugo is very small in stature but huge on talent, you will see” he replied. At the opening round of the 2017 FIM Trial World Championship at Camprodon in Spain, I made a mental note to look out for him. Sure enough, there was this young kid on a 125cc Gas Gas who, shall we say, looked very impressive. I then saw him later in the day when he stood so proud on the third step of the podium. It was time to find out more about the new ‘Mighty Atom’.
