MICHELIN AT THE ‘SCOTTISH’ 2015
With a long and proud association that goes back to the first Michelin win with French rider, Gilles Burgat, on an SWM in 1981 through to the most recent win in 2014 with Dougie Lampkin – Michelin is pleased to support the 2015 event.
In 2014 Michelin tyres were used by seven of the top ten riders, including the winner Dougie Lampkin, who along with his friend James Dabill, start this year’s event as the favourites. Lampkin has won using Michelin tyres for the last three years and will be looking to add a fourth win in 2015. Ladies World trials champion and Michelin rider, Emma Bristow, will also once again be looking to win the Best Lady rider award.
This year Michelin will be providing a ‘Fill Up with Air’ unit in the start area. It will be situated under two Michelin gazebos to protect the riders from the Scottish weather with 4 compressors available. Michelin staff will be on-hand to offer pressure checks and expert tyre advice to the riders, teams and spectators. There will also be a Michelin tyre display where you can view the latest rubber.
Proud to be associated with this prestigious event you will be able to find the Michelin service area as the large inflatable Michelin man can be seen with the Michelin flags also flying proud.
Bringing you live information on the morning of each of the six days will be Nevis Radio Station. Hosted by David Ogg and John Moffat rider interviews and general information is presented to you by Michelin in association with Trial Magazine positioned in the start area.
