Classic Dirt Bike

Magical Matchless • A big single was the mainstay of scrambling for a long time – and arguably, to see and hear these machines in action is the reason for classic sport.

JHS RACING

MICK’S VIEW

Derek Rickman in action • Competitor, manufacturer, businessman are all labels applicable to Derek Rickman. We concentrate on the ‘competitor’ bit as Dave Gittins celebrates his life.

Future projection • From riding high to being bailed out by the Spanish government, OSSA’s fortunes have been turbulent – but boy, have they made some great-looking bikes.

MOVIE STARS

MICK ANDREWS AND OSSA

AL SPAN MOTORCYCLES

Badge of Honour • Pick a name, almost any name

WHO IS JON SLENZAK?

BITS AND PIECES… • Those of a certain age will be humming Dave Clarke Five’s song, younger people will just think “what?!?” There’s been a period of inactivity for reasons beyond my control.

FUELLING UP

THE SAFETY THING

DIRTPRODUCTS • Got something new, something reintroduced, or the latest thing for classic off-road riders in the feet-up, MX or enduro world? Tell us and we’ll put it here. Contact Leon in advertising on 01507 529465 or Tim Britton on 07739 615605 or CDBeditor@mortons.co.uk

Highland Classic Action • As sporting life battles to return to normal CDB headed to Aviemore for the postponed Inverness & District MCC’s 2020 Highland Classic Two Day Trial – Fantic Edition.

Beamish Tales • Pink Floyd sang ‘Emily tries but misunderstands’ – a lyric which could almost be applied to the production trials machines made by The Big Four.

WHO IS JOHN DICKINSON?

Kick-starting sport again • After 18 months of sporadic events it looks as if sport is on the way back.

Rocking the series • With lots to catch up on, the Rockshocks Classic Trials Series jumped ahead with two events on consecutive days in the South West. Andy Withers was there for us.

CCM Celebration • The sound of rolling thunder – to pinch Peter Henshaw’s CCM book title – echoed around Westmorland County Showground as CCM’s Golden Jubilee Scramble happened.

THE COST OF RACING

IN THE FRAME

THREE WHEELS

Called to The Baa • Two days of traditional trials on the Durham/Northumberland border – Castleside Trials Club’s Baa Classic.

RESULTS - WINNERS

AMCA/CDB British Classic MX Championship • The Mick Brooker Memorial Scramble hosted by Acorns MCC at Butterton near Stoke-on-Trent included Round 2 of the AMCA/CDB British Classic MX Championship.

Bultaco Revival Nostalgia Trial • Postponed from 2020, Westmorland MCC’s celebration of Bultaco went ahead on Saturday, June 19, 2021.

Out of the blue • Sometimes change happens gradually, other times something comes along which forces the world to take notice just by being there.
