John Wallis of the GSC Grays Leyburn office has successfully completed the Scott Trial yet again! The event, held in the heart of Swaledale, is considered by many to be the toughest single day event in the world of Motorcyling. Despite numerous bike problems and horrendous cramp, John got round the course intact and within the allocated time!
The Scott Trial, originated in 1914, when Alfred Scott, inventor and founder of the Scott Motorcycle Company, issued a challenge to his workers at the Scott motorcycle factory and those of his local agent. The challenge was to ride and navigate their way from the factory in Shipley through the Yorkshire Dales on a prescribed route to Bumsall. Of the 14 starters only 9 finished. The Trial now runs over an off-road course of some 84 miles with 76 different sections held in stunning Swaledale countryside.
The event this year was won by James Dabill, a 5 times British trials champion and world trials rider!
