There are two routes: a slightly more difficult A route and the more popular B route, though to be fair the entire entry could well have tackled the A route and not been fazed by the severity, for there was nothing to crash off and nothing even remotely hazardous.
This year’s Scottish Pre-65 Trial winner, Gary Macdonald from Kinlochleven, was the clear winner on a zero score repeating his success of 2017, with guest rider Phil Disney second on one mark lost, while the best performance on a Montesa was by top Scottish expert ‘Chips’ — Alan Crayk.
On the B route the overall winner, with another clean sheet, was Jim Tennant in front of Nick Jefferies who lost three, proving that the former TT winner, Honda and CCM factory rider and British ISDT team rider has retained all the ability that has made him arguably the best all-around motorcyclist of the current generation. The scores varied from zero to well over 100, but it mattered not a jot to the riders who were there to enjoy the friendliest trial in Scotland, and just as it ‘says on the tin’, that is exactly what they enjoyed.
