A jubilant Dougie Lampkin took his record-breaking 12th victory at the 2018 Scottish Six Days Trial organised by Edinburgh & District Motor Club this weekend.
The 42-year-old trials legend, who already holds 12 FIM world titles to his name, was in close contention all week having performed the best on three of the six days.
Lampkin and his Vertigo took the victory in front of James Dabill who had led the trial for five days only to be outpointed on the final day.
Eight of the top ten riders used Michelin X-Light tyres and Michelin’s success continued further down the order. Over 80% of riders chose them for their durability and exceptional performance over the six days of this rugged competition played out over six days using different routes around the base at Fort William.
Further Michelin success came with Jiri Svoboda (Beta) from the Czech Republic taking the Best Newcomer award and Amos Bilbao (Montesa) from Spain taking the Best Foreign Rider award. In this male dominated sport, the current FIM Ladies Trial World Champion, Emma Bristow (Sherco) was once again the leading female as she laid claim to the Best Lady Rider award.
In the machine capacities class awards Michelin domination continued, as 17-year-old Beta rider, Joe Dawson, walked away with the award for the Best Machine up to 200cc, while Gas Gas rider, Dan peace, took the best 201cc – 250cc cup with Dougie Lampkin taking the Over 250cc cup for Vertigo.
