The Span­ish brand Mon­tesa, and Jim San­di­ford go hand in hand. The San­di­ford fam­ily have im­ported the ma­chines since the late six­ties. When Jim San­di­ford passed away in 1993 it was his son and daugh­ter Martin and Caro­line who were left to con­tinue with the busi­ness. They have suc­cess­fully ne­go­ti­ated their way to en­vi­able suc­cess with sales of ma­chines, and com­pe­ti­tion suc­cess in­clud­ing SSDT and Scott Trial wins. In a male dom­i­nated sport it was Caro­line who looked af­ter the lo­gis­tics. She has at­tended ev­ery SSDT since a very early age. With the change of di­rec­tion in the Mon­tesa/ Honda tri­als im­porter­ship she will not have the fa­mous Mon­tesa hos­pi­tal­ity in the Parc Ferme, leading her to have her first hol­i­day in May! hearts. Our hos­pi­tal­ity was branded “sec­ond to none” – other “con­tracted” rid­ers used to try and sneak in for some of our scram… we gen­er­ally let them. This sport is so fam­ily ori­en­tated it is (and will be) very dif­fi­cult for some­one from out­side to in­te­grate and ours is cer­tainly a VERY hard act to fol­low.
