Classic Trial - - NEWS -

Ian Berry's much an­tic­i­pated of­fi­cial bi­og­ra­phy of motorcycling leg­end Jeff Smith, which in­cludes more than 390 pictures il­lus­trat­ing the life and times of this off-road leg­end, was re­leased at the Telford Show in Fe­bru­ary where the man him­self was happy to sign books. At ap­prox­i­mately 470 pages this mas­sive bio fea­tures Jeff's story from his early years in Lan­cashire, through his learn­ing phase rid­ing his fa­ther’s motorcycle on WWII ra­tioned petrol, to his me­te­oric rise within the Bri­tish and Euro­pean tri­als and mo­tocross pro­fes­sional ranks. Af­ter leav­ing BSA in the early 1970s he con­tin­ued his as­so­ci­a­tion with mo­tor­cy­cles via Can-Am and AHRMA and re­mains to this day an avid mo­tor­cy­clist, en­gi­neer and me­chanic. Price: £60 + P&P. The book is avail­able on: www.ama­zon.co.uk
