As our thoughts turn to 2016, we all start thinking of our new year resolutions, give up the booze, lose weight, eat better, get fitter, play more, to try and not be all consumed by work…. and of course most importantly get that bike out that has sat in the shed or garage for the last I don’t know how many months (or years!!), get out and have one more ride or ride that trial you’ve always loved, everybody can find an excuse, so you need to make it happen, get that bike out and ride and enjoy the banter and giggle of the trials world or even for the blessed few try and win that class trophy or championship one more time…
