Simon Shadbolt

Simon Shadbolt 1976

It is with very great sadness that I have to tell you that Simon Shadbolt, about whom Trialmag published my article about the Chapman BSA project quite recently, passed away on Thursday 10 May after an 18 month battle with cancer aged just 65, surrounded by his loving Family.

In true ‘trials style’ he was never going to ‘take a 5’ in this the toughest section of all, but pushed hard all the way until there were no more options.

A Midland Centre stalwart of many years standing and known for his dedication to the Ossa brand, his loss is felt by all those who knew him, both in and beyond the motorcycle fraternity.

Kind Regards,

Neil Shadbolt
