MY FA­THER RON­ALD HULME 1933–2016

Trial Magazine - - OBSERVATIO­N -

Ev­ery­one has a hero in their life­time, and mine was my fa­ther Ron­ald Hulme. I took the phone call from my wife Jane that he had passed away while I was in Ger­many at the WTC in late May. Word soon spread around the paddock, and I must say I was quite over­whelmed by the sup­port from my many friends – thank you. It was a very tough week­end, made a lit­tle eas­ier as I had my good friend John Shirt Jnr trav­el­ling with me. To see three young Bri­tish rid­ers in the T2 class dom­i­nat­ing the podium did bring a tear to my eyes as they played the na­tional an­them, such was my emo­tion.
