Imagine how much pressure you must feel when your two elder brothers have previously won the most prestigious motorcycle trials event in the world. The eldest of the three Lampkin brothers, Arthur, had won in 1963 followed by Alan ‘Sid’ in 1966. Ten years later in 1976 the youngest brother, Martin, would start on a winning run of three in a row at the Scottish Six Days trial for Bultaco. To say Martin was on a roll was a massive understatement. In 1975 he had won the very first FIM World Trials Championship but he had been very unhappy with his 9th place finish at the SSDT in May, when his highest previous finish had been in 1973 when he’d finished 3rd.
