Black­burn Holden

Classic Trial - - NEWS -

York­shire and Lan­cashire lost one of its most re­spected tri­als rid­ers with the pass­ing of Black­burn ‘Blackie’ Holden re­cently. Blackie suf­fered a stroke and was on the way to re­cov­ery when other com­pli­ca­tions ended his life at the age of seventy five. He is sur­vived by his daugh­ter Samantha and son Black­burn, bet­ter known as Blackie. Their mother Pauline passed away some years ago. Blackie Holden was a tri­aller through and through, unas­sum­ing, quiet, and gen­uine. Words: Barry Robin­son
