New Bri­tish Cham­pion in 2017

Trial Magazine - - NEWS -

The news that Span­ish man­u­fac­turer Gas Gas has signed the cur­rent Bri­tish Tri­als Cham­pion means that we will have a new Bri­tish cham­pion in 2017. In re­cent years James has dom­i­nated the Bri­tish Cham­pi­onship, apart from an in­ter­rup­tion by Michael Brown in 2013, but he will now be based in Spain and will con­test their na­tional cham­pi­onship for Gas Gas as its num­ber one rider. The eight-round cham­pi­onship se­ries is wide open, but will the new cham­pion come from the younger rid­ers? On pa­per we have Jack Shep­pard (Beta) who was the only rider to beat Dabill in 2016, but ex­pect Jack Price (Gas Gas) and Iwan Roberts (Beta) to use their ex­pe­ri­ence to put one over the old school of Michael Brown (Gas Gas) and Ross Danby (TRS). Throw in the young­sters like Toby Mar­tyn (Ver­tigo) and Dan and Jack Peace (Gas Gas), and we should see some bat­tles for the wins when the se­ries starts at the ex­cel­lent Hook Wood venue on 5th March.
