Topic: BTT 2017

If you put "Beamish Trophy trial 2017" into You Tube you will see a video of this year's event.
However, look to the right of it and you can see a 1996 Part 1 and Part 2 videos.

About 9 minutes in and further, you may see some chaps you may know - 21 years younger!

A fine couple of clips showing thumping AMC singles, zippy Triumph Twins and yowling Scotts, Strangely also showing a BSA that needed a good kicking to start and BSA Bnatab that needed a lot of L.L.A (Light Leg Assistance) to ascend a hill. Over to Tommy for comment!!

Re: BTT 2017

There are some nice photo's there. In the Haggs album, there are a couple of our intrepid sidecar members in a bit of trouble. I just can't remember their names......

Massive respect for the sidecar crews, at least 5* harder than a solo.
Off road ruts are bad enough on two wheels, they never match the width of a combo!

Re: BTT 2017

I have heard that the gallant winners of the event last year (Messrs Reavely and his co-pilot Mr. Goode) may be practicing for this event soon!! It's going to be a tough act to follow if they are getting even more skillful!
