Classic Trial - - NEWS -

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”.
