Embsay ace joins star line up for demanding Scott Trial
10:58am Thursday 18th October 2012 in Sport
Embsay’s Aran Drachenberg will be competing alongside six former champions in Richmond Motor Club’s demanding Scott Trial on Saturday.
Twelve-times world trials champion, Dougie Lampkin, Wayne Bray- brook, Phillip Alderson, Michael Phillipson, James Dabill and the 2011 winner Jonathan Richardson will all be tackling the Feldom Moor course.
The event involves almost 80 miles of moorland, tracks, hills and dales and will be ridden against the elements.
Penalties are awarded for time taken over and above the fastest finisher. In 1996 Graham Jarvis stopped the clocks in a mind boggling 5hrs 56mins 40 secs – the longest time since records was retained.
One competitor who is expected to attract massive attention is Tyco Suzuki Superbike team rider Josh Brookes. He was in action at Brands Hatch last weekend and will find a totally different type of riding required on Saturday.
The organisers have produced an 80-page programme, priced £4, which lists every competitor and all their details. The first rider starts at 9am.
