Recommended Posts

The Scott Trial. Marske, 21-10-2017

The Scott Trial takes place on 0ctober 21st at Marske. 

The one hundred year old event is the toughest one day cross country trial in Europe using a course of eighty miles of moorland.

The entry list is full with 200 starters.

Four recent winners compete.  Silsden’s Dougie Lampkin, former multi world indoor and outdoor champion, heads the list with multi British champion  James Dabill as well as the World and British female trials champion Emma Bristow. Skeeby’s Jonathan Richardson with his sister Chloe who goes head to head with Bristow.

Jonathan competes on the very latest 300cc Gas Gas machine. Jono will be aiming to win the trial for a second time. 

Malton’s Ian Austermuhle finally won the trial after years of trying. Ian has all the talents to succeed.  

Add in internationals Jack and Dan Peace, Welsh champIon  Iwan Roberts and Jack Price and Wallsend enduro ace Billy Bolt and the sparks will fly. Skeeby also has Will Reynolds up front with four Scott Spoons in five years and third fastest on three occasions. Scarborough former national champion Michael Brown is back in the fray after a season of recovery after a knee injury.

Watch out for Matt Maynard, Guy Kendrew and Richard Sadler. That trio will be moving fast as will Healaugh’s John Sunter.

Entries are from all parts of the British Isles, the Ulster Province and Southern Ireland, Germany and the Czech Republic.

Programmes will be on sale locally from thirteen outlets in Richmond, Reeth and Darlington from October 8th.

The programme is essential. It provides all the competitor names, their home town, and their machine. The course map, time schedule and features on landowners and farmers forms the perfect backdrop to the event. The price over the counter is just £5.00 and with postage the cost rises to £6.50

The Scott Trial has raised many thousands of pounds for local charities over the past forty years. Programmes sales boost those charitable donations.

In view of the major names on the entry list it is possible that ten thousand spectators will arrive in Swaledale on October 21st.
