Bernie’s Back!

Trial Magazine - - NEWS -

With the West­mor­land Club’s event grow­ing in stature year on year, a good crowd came along to the 2018 Bul­taco Re­vival Nos­tal­gia Trial held in late June with the added at­trac­tion of watch­ing the 1979 World Tri­als Cham­pion Bernie Schreiber in ac­tion.

The com­pe­ti­tion, which was held at Holme Farm, Mid­dle­ton, Sed­bergh, Cum­bria in the North of the coun­try, is well sup­ported by Fin­land’s three-time world tri­als cham­pion Yrjo Ves­ter­i­nen on a Bul­taco, and he pro­vided the Amer­i­can with a Bul­taco from his col­lec­tion on which to com­pete. Other in­vited guests in­cluded many of the old Bul­taco team rid­ers in­clud­ing Spain’s Manuel Soler, with Alan ‘Sid’ Lamp­kin rep­re­sent­ing the fa­mous York­shire fam­ily. New to the trial was a ‘Team Chal­lenge’ for the Martin Lamp­kin Team Event, in which any team of three rid­ers on any com­bi­na­tion of ma­chine could take part. All en­try fees for the team event were paid to char­ity. The 100-strong en­try in­cluded nearly 40 Bul­ta­cos along with many other Pre-65 and Twin-Shock ma­chines, pro­vid­ing a day of re­u­nions for friends old and new and the chance to have a ‘Flash­back’ to a golden era in tri­als en­joyed by so many.
