TELFORD 2018: HAGON SHOCKS
Thousands of off-road fans descended on Telford’s International Centre for the Classic Dirt Bike Show sponsored by Hagon Shocks for Europe’s largest classic off-road event. The halls were filled to the rafters with some of the very best off-road machines from numerous clubs and private restorations while the outside autojumble focused on off-road sport was also busy.
The star guests – Gerrit Wolsink, Colin Dommett, Peter Duke and Alf Hagon – caused a stir as they spoke about their career exploits on stage with Jack Burnicle. Jeff Smith MBE also made the transatlantic journey to sign copies of his new book at the show.
The coveted Best in Show prize was awarded to a stunning 1969 Jawa 420 motocross bike owned by Bill Henson. Other weekend winners included a 1967 250 Greeves Anglian, which won Best Trials, and the Westmorland Motor Club, who won the Best Club Stand.
Event planner Andy Catton said: “The standard of machines on display during both days of the annual show was again excellent. I would like to thank everyone who attended the show including all our traders, guests, exhibitors and our loyal sponsor, Hagon Shocks, who brought an impeccable collection of historic Hagon bikes!”
