GGUK were exhibitors at the very popular Telford Classic Dirt bike Show at the weekend with GAS GAS, MOTS, S3, STYLMARTIN and other brands. We displayed the new TXT RACING E4 model together with GP, CONTACT and EC models.
GG valued staff Andy Hipwell and Corin Davie manned the stand and dealt with the customers with our products available.
I presented my Dads award to Colin Ward and his son for the best Expert on an air-cooled mono-shock machine at the very popular KIA series.
I also met up again with my no.2 hero Mick Andrews who I respect highly. Dad is no.1 hero and Doug is no.3
Also a massive surprise was to see my immaculate RTL HONDA that I rode back in 1988. I only had one decent result on the Honda and that was 10th in my first year SSDT (6th after 4 days). I can admit now that the bike was far too good and advanced for me at the time but I thoroughly enjoyed the ride thanks to Derrick Edmondson and Honda Belgium.
Not much Team JSTGGUK news this weekend apart from DAN THORPE was out again in the harsh weather picking up yet another win at a fantastic new venue called Stone Edge which the Sheffield and Hallamshire Club now have permission to use. This was Dan’s 6th Trial of 2017 and continues to be a massive rider in my team.
JSTGGUK rider Sam Yeomans was 2nd fending off Chris Pearson in 3rd and Rich Timp in 4th.
Most other Team riders were out training for this weekends S3 Wallace Cup Trial and BTC1 the weekend after.
