Thanks for posting that Paul, makes me wonder how they would get on with a modern trials bike ...and a helmet rather than a flat cap  :037:
Loved those guys on the sidecar outfit  :028:

Yes Mike, that'd be easy on today's bikes, or even 1980's bikes. Proper skillful riding on those old machines. Just stripped down road bikes with solid back ends. It's always harder than it looks on vids & pics.

Waaaaay too tough for me. The side car thing on a track like that seems like a perfect definition for madness  :125:

Love to go watch the long distance trials eg lands end or Exeter, the cold & wet puts me off the journey.
