LEVEN VALLEY TWO DAY TRIAL 2018
The recently reformed Kinlochleven & District Motor Cycle Club – affiliated to the Scottish ACU – were proud to announce a new event to take place in autumn 2018. The event, entitled the Leven Valley Two Day Trial, will take place on the weekend of September 29th & 30th based around the Highland village of Kinlochleven.
Catering for Pre-65 and Twin-Shock motorcycles, the entry limit of 180 riders was filled within the first week of the entry forms being made available. Based on the fact that there has been a healthy demand for an event to cater for the above-mentioned machines the club had asked locally about the idea of the event, which was met with resounding support from local landowners, businesses and agencies to organise the event on their ground.
The event will encompass areas such as the Mamore Road and onwards to Loch Eilde. The course will be completely offroad using estate roads, paths and open countryside. Competitors’ machines do not have to be road legal.
John Hulme – Classic Trial Magazine: “This is fantastic news for this superb area in the Highlands which has such a strong sporting heritage associated with motorcycle trials. I remember first visiting the area in 1977 for the Scottish Six Days Trial watching my heroes Mick Andrews and Martin Lampkin, who won on his Bultaco, and I have been coming back for over forty years such is the attraction. We will be attending the event to give it the coverage in the magazine it deserves; a new event in the calendar. Imagine re-living a ‘golden’ era for motorcycle trials, as that is what it’s aimed to replicate”.
