We recently celebrated 25 years of "vintage" trials at our local eastern Ontario venue.
Ironically some of the bikes competing now were still riding "modern" events when this series started!

I wrote an article for our local off-road bike rag (page 46) for anyone interested.

I haven't seen Mike P. in a couple of years. I always loved his Triumph Cub (he may have sold this when he bought the Matchless, I can't remember), and his Matchless is sweet too!

Nice article. I rode a few events there many moons ago. A great venue. Sorry to hear of Dave's passing this year, he always put an an excellent event.
Great to hear that the family has allowed competitions to continue there. I will have to get back.
