The popularity of twinshock trials bikes is growing at a rate of knots and September 2018 saw the first running of the Leven Valley Two Day Trial in Kinlochleven.
With one lap each day, no road work, the trial brought out all manner of twinshocks to do battle in the Highlands. As Bultacos bounced through rocky streams, Montesas managed the mud, Hondas hopped from bank to bank… Okay I’ll stop now… overseeing the action was Sammy ‘the Bultaco Man’ Miller who first took to the Highlands on a Bultaco in 1965 when he won the premier award for Bultaco – their first win but his third.
The trial was pitched just right, the sections sensible and there were lots of smiling faces throughout the weekend. Look out for a full report next issue.
