Any one heard how it went?
Had a great time Bazza; the track was great and really suitable for the old and new VMX machines. Good thing I rode the hard enduro on a trials bike - I needed it!
Was great to catch up with so many old friends, some I have not seen for years.
Huge thanks to Ken and the team for all the hard work that makes events like this happen.

Thank you David - at least you got an image before 25 dabs attempting the little hill.

Really enjoyed it; thank you for taking the time to lay out the course.

Careful David. Easy shit to a trials guy is still “ bars in the nuts over the bars “ stuff to mere mortals.
The most underrated sport ever in my opinion. It’s hard????
YEP 100% agree - if crashing was an a category of racing then I'm the champ on a trials bike

Ken has asked me to set some trials sections at CD15 and I'll be bringing along some old trials bikes.

I'll set sections to suit what other trials riders want, so here is your chance to get what you like to ride  8) otherwise it will just be what I think is right while wearing my devious section-setter's hat.
Please post up any special requests for the sections and also how about what you are going to bring along.
easy shit - I'm no trials rider, never was and my other handicap is my 75 KT250 -  ;)

I gave up on eBay international purchases years ago when they started doing "postage" and extorting us for triple the rack rate.
Have to desperately want something to buy it on eBay these days.

yep - outstanding news. An absolute star is our Toby
Agree with you Skypig on tennis - me thinks Leyton  has done a fine job of developing a bunch of respectful young guys rather than the past crop of arrogant over paid oxygen thieves as you well note.

There are a bunch of very enthusiastic VMX stalwarts behind this event and from a conversation last week I hear strong entries already received. 

Suzuki / Re: Suzuki TM125 Front End/Forks Needed
« on: July 18, 2018, 02:21:04 PM »
specifically TM250 74/75 forks are the go using TM 250 triples from the same years.
RM triples will not be Ok and a knowing scrutineer will ping you
The first RM forks are shorter by about 20mm in length and have the drain hole in a different spot but are otherwise the same at the TM externally. I never saw the drain hole position as being a problem, some may but that would be overly pedantic to me; quite a few pre 75 bikes have that fork but you have to know what to look for to spot it.
I wouldnt fit TM125 forks to a TM125 if I was going to race it as the TM250 are stiffer, longer travel and the TM250 brake is way better.
