MICHELIN DOMINATES THE PODIUM AT THE 2018 SCOTT TRIAL
The day’s action took place on the North Yorkshire moors high above the market town of Richmond. The event was challenging with heavy rain and high winds, along with swollen river crossings and difficult moors to navigate. Riders attempted to compete the single lap course covering 76 hazards over 80 miles.
Once again organised by the Richmond Motor Club, the Scott Trial has a strong sporting heritage covering over 100 years and is unique in the fact that time and observation are calculated together to find the overall winner.
