It’s with a heavy heart that we have to report the passing of one of our very good friends Alan Vines at the age of 78.
John Hulme: “A huge fan and supporter of both Trial Magazine and Classic Trial Magazine he loved working with me on my many projects with the supply of his out-standing pictures. I have spent many enjoyable hours on the phone where his vast knowledge of motorcycling was as always a pleasure to listen to. As he wished these pictures will still appear as part of the Alan Vines – Yoomee Archive in all our publications including Motorcycle Retro Replay, he will be sadly missed. I have used this picture of Malcolm Davis from the 1975 Cotswolds Cup Trial as he a tribute to Alan as he was one of his favourite riders. Our thoughts at this difficult time are with his brother Derek”.
