Here at Trials Guru we like to bring you something different from the norm, so here we have news of a Skipton lad who has entered the Scottish Six Days Trial on a bike that is certainly out of age.
James Moorhouse has entered on a 325cc Bultaco Sherpa T which in effect a thirty year old motorcycle to compete against the modern trials machines.
Allocated riding number 181, we look forward to plotting James’s progress on a machine he has christened ‘El Donkey’. The reason for the strange name is by way of homage to the tuner from Barcelona, ‘El Puma’, Jose Luis Rodriguez of Puma Racing whose speciality is restoring and tuning Bultaco motorcycles. James has rebuilt his Bultaco in the style of El Puma, but to put his own touch on it, dubbed the motorcycle ‘El Donkey’.
Listen up for daily interviews with James on Nevis Radio during SSDT week and if you are at the event, be sure to cheer James on.
Moorhouse will be in company with friends, Boyd Webster and Alan Mudd.
