    We joined Croft in the end Steve as Scarborough was just too far to travel for us. The practice area has been improved hugely apparently and it’s only 20 mins from us.

    It should be a really good area to bring him on. You're never going to hold a world or British championship there, but thats not what you want, you just need somewhere safe to learn the basics. Good luck, and enjoy. Theres also the trials and enduro park at Catterick, Ive never been but Lee's been a few times on the enduro track and said its quite good.

    Had a great time at Harrogate for the training days. Snapped his brake pedal, popped the fork seals and needs new chain and sprockets but his confidence came on loads.

    Went up to the Mintex youth trial at Hurst today for a look. Absolutely amazing skills from all the competitors over the two thirty mile laps, hopefully my lad will want to do it in a couple of years when he’s old enough.

    In fairness they're probably old geezers in the boys eyes. However had it been Dougie, Bou or Dabill then you would have caught his interest.

    He’s met Dougie a few times but more star struck by Guy Kendrew for some reason.
    Randy was telling us he’s 60 next year, made me feel really old !
