MISSING YOU                                               SSDT – 100 YEARS – 2011

 As we are still living under the cloud of Covid-19 pandemic, the organising Edinburgh & District Motor Club Limited had no option but to follow on from 2020 and cancel the 2021 Scottish Six Days Trial once again. Some people will say the decision made on January the 26th was a little hasty, but it proved to be the correct one as we are only now seeing the true extent of the long roadmap out of this awful period in human history. For those who are not aware, the planning for each year’s event starts the week after one finishes, such is the logistical operation for an event of this size – it’s not just about six days in May for many!

2011 marked the 100-year celebrations of the famous Scottish Six Days Trial, still, in many eyes, the most prestigious trials event in the world. The attraction from around the globe to compete in this celebration event was huge, with the entry once again way over subscribed.

After the ballot to allocate riding numbers, the club had many previous winners included in the entry including: Dougie Lampkin (1994, 1995, 1996, 2008, 2009); Graham Jarvis (1998, 1999, 2004, 2006); Amos Bilbao (2002); Sam Connor (2005); James Dabill (2007) and the 2010 winner Alexz Wigg.

To take the win in 2011 would be one moment in time, and they all wanted the winning title of ‘Centurion’ to celebrate 100 years of the most famous trial in the world. The whole world of motorcycling, not just trials, came to Fort William in 2011 to celebrate this iconic occasion.

Here we reflect on the 2011 event won by James Dabill (Beta) and, yes, we are missing you and look forward to meeting up again with friends old and new in 2022.

For once, the inclement weather that can be found at the event did everyone a favour and stayed away. Sunday’s weigh-in day was blessed with Mediterranean sunshine, and it was a happy carnival atmosphere for motorcycle trials at the West End carpark. Friends old and new had their regular ‘Meet’ and spoke about and enjoyed 100 years of this famous event.
