Nevis Range host the exciting Motorcycle Trials Champs

Written by Fiona May 19 2010

Fancy a bit of exciting spectating? Nevis range, Fort William, is set to host the UK leg of the SPEA FiM Motorcycle Trial World Championships from June 25 to 27. And the event promises to be a stunning, thrill-a-minute show.

Just recently Red Bull two wheel athletes Dougie Lampkin (12 times motorcycles trials world champ) and Danny MacAskill (the talented YouTube Street trials guy from Skye) joined forces to mark the final countdown to the event.

It’s been eight years since Scotland hosted a stage of this prestigious Wold Champs series and spectators will be treated to 60 of the world’s best riders from 15 countries. The competition will see riders hoping to gain valuable points towards the 2010 World Pro, World Junior and World Youth titles.

Yorkshireman Dougie Lampkin has dominated the scene for many years and will be leading the UK’s bid for a title win.

He said: “This is the biggest event for me this year. Fort William has some of the best trials terrain on the planet. Nevis Range is an incredible venue for this event and confirms why the region is regarded as the Outdoor Capital of the UK.”
