The fi­nal re­sult for the Scot­tish Six Days Trial has been de­cided on so many oc­ca­sions on the hills of Ben Ne­vis, and 2018 was no dif­fer­ent as it once again de­cided the win­ner. James Da­bill had one hand on the tro­phy, but vic­tory was cru­elly de­nied as he failed to pass through the ends cards on the very dif­fi­cult section twenty-six to record a five, which de­nied him his third vic­tory. With Dougie Lampkin rid­ing be­hind him in the run­ning or­der he took a strong sin­gle foot down to se­cure what we be­lieve will be an un­beat­able record in this unique event for vic­tory num­ber twelve. Be­hind these two the bat­tle for the fi­nal step on the podium was very in­tense as Gary Mac­don­ald out-pointed young Jack Price on the tie de­cider. Mac­don­ald was backed up by Andy Chilton and Thomas Minta as they did enough to se­cure the pres­ti­gious man­u­fac­tur­ers’ tro­phy for Scorpa, much to the de­light of UK im­porter Nigel Bir­kett. 282 rid­ers started out, and with 239 fin­ish­ers this his­tor­i­cal event lived up to its ti­tle of the ul­ti­mate test of man and ma­chine.
