    Dibs is riding the Vertigo and won the British Champs on it, this year and Dougie placed 1st in the 2015 SSDT on the Vertigo on its first time out

    It's a cracking bike
    Yeah it looks a great looking thing too, I'll look more later.

    The montesa is a Honda (engine at least) is it not? Thought the two of them have been tied for years since the MH200/349 days.
    I'd still like a nice 349 if I could find one. It was on my wall for a few years.(the brochure not the bike!) But I ended up with an RL250 then a new frantic 125 as it was a cheap one they wanted rid of when the professionals came out.
    Good ol days they were

    Yep you're right Honda have owned Montesa since 1984

    The 4RT is a HRC Honda, assembled by Montesa

    Thought Ian Austermuhle was from Cumbria JB. My son used to ride against him in the nationals a few years back, unless he's moved. Gerald Richardson's daughters a hard little thing, her hands were trashed at the end with blood coming from beneath her helmet and she was still smiling.

    I must be mistaken, he was a cracking schoolboy rider in his day.

    He was on form, as usual - got the double this year too

    Ian Austermuhle had a good 2nd place (for a rare ride on a Trials bike)

    The presentation was emotional for Dougie. Disappointing that the idiots on enduro bikes who insist on getting as close to the section as possible forced club members to have evening talks with landowners. Bridge end couldn't have been easier with a carpark provided, and the catering truck sited in the carpark, yet there was still dozens of bikes parked next to the section. Its great to see the event become more popular, but I fear its popularity will bring about its demise.

    Yep I saw that and absolutely no need for anyone to on the fell side, other than in the designated car parks

    I prefer the Scottish or a good National or BTC Trial nowadays............ where you don't get the volume of followers that the Scott attracts

    As you say Marshals will have to police Bridge End next year
