Dave Norris

Trial Magazine - - NEWS -

The tri­als world in the UK was stunned on Fe­bru­ary 10th with the news of the death of Bris­to­lian tri­als en­thu­si­ast Dave Norris. Dave was the fa­ther of for­mer Hamil­ton Yamaha team­ster Adam Norris, who was a top UK rider in the 1990s.

In a per­sonal trib­ute Tri­als Guru’s John Mof­fat said: “I got to know Dave Norris in the 1990s as he was al­ways around at the SSDT; he chased af­ter his rider and son Adam and we were al­ways within speak­ing dis­tance ev­ery day as Dave was a mas­ter at be­ing in the right place at the right time, on time ev­ery time! Dave must have clocked hun­dreds of thou­sands of miles, fol­low­ing Adam at events over the years. I re­ally got to know Dave in 2002 when I was SSDT Sec­re­tary and Adam was, of course, rid­ing his umpteenth Scot­tish. I al­ways en­joyed speak­ing with him and I just knew that he was like us all, a mo­tor­cy­cle sport en­thu­si­ast. He never passed me with­out speak­ing, he was one of the good guys. I along with many other friends will miss him greatly at Scot­tish Six Days’ time.”
