A finish in style for Toby Martyn with the a double podium at the final British championship weekend in East Lothian. Martyn has displayed stellar form lately with a convincing win at the last World championship Trial2 round in Italy last month, now followed up with a second and third place finish at the Bob MacGregor Trials Academy which hosted the final round. It has been a very positive rookie season for the 17year old Vertigo rider, highlighted with wins in the World and European championship. One more important event on Toby’s 2017 schedule – the Scott trial in a few weeks time. Go Toby!
DOUGIE’S WHEELIE 1 YEAR CELEBRATION
Just over one year on from when Jitsie brand ambassador Dougie Lampkin made history by becoming the first ever person to wheelie the entire 37.3 miles of the iconic and much revered Isle of Man TT course, the first anniversary of this incredible achievement was marked by a day of celebrations. Fifteen invited youth riders from Dougie’s native Yorkshire took part in a skills based training session overlooking the lake at the wonderful setting just outside the market town of Skipton. The talented group of youngsters aged from nine years old to fifteen years old were put through their paces under the watchful eye of twelve times FIM Trial World champion Lampkin, with each of the three skill stations designed to develop their balance, control and ability to produce the perfect wheelie.
