    Wardy won the Travers this year in the sections on his old TY but got excluded for putting his bike in the van instead of doing the road work. Wally Dalton was fond of a treat on the BSA.

    Brilliant event - we last went in, how can I say this, 1979; as a spectator I hasten to add.

    My Trials riding was only ever at Local Centre Clubman level - packed up years back when injuries started to get in the way of my job. Alway jealous of the skills of these guys.

    We then switched to following Car Rallys, in my VW Westie, until Group B was banned - never the same after that.

    Happy Days ..................... KEN

    Enjoyed that JB, was that the Rotax engine in the Armstrong, by any chance, i thought they only did squaddie size 250s. A mate of mine had a Greeves pathfinder with the 175 Puch engine in it in the seventies, a good little tool it was.

    I saw the fallout on FB, still a canny rider

    Been to Cliff Collinson National today, a few Spanish and Frech riders there, in truly snotty conditions

    Lad called Benoit (French I think) , came second in Expert class and put in a fab ride, beaten by 2 marks to Jack Peace

    I think it was the Hiro engine in the Armstrongs..............Rotax 2t in the Gori and SWM's

    Just seen this

    I havnt rode a trial on it, have done a couple off road days on it,and loaned it to a friend a couple of times.
    It rides well and has plenty of grip, more than the 4rt .
    I still prefer the ty250 for the odd trial I do, probably cos the lack of brakes makes you pay attention
