QUAD STARS TACKLE SCOTTISH

May 15th, 2019.


Sheldon Seal and John Mitchell swapped four wheels for two last week to compete in the legendary Scottish Six Days Trial…and despite battling for almost a week, over 180 sections and riding across hundreds of miles of moorland, the pair could barely be split!


Seal just edged it finishing 227th with 600 marks lost on his debut in the epic event, while former British QX Champion Mitchell finished in 228th with 601 marks lost.

The pair were joined in Highlands by fellow quad racer David Vass, who came home 240th on 660 marks, and pal Jamie Black who was 250th on 734 marks. 281 riders started the event, regarded as one of the toughest trials in the world.

The trial was won by factory, Beta rider James Dabill. He dropped just five marks in total, pushing 12-times winner, Dougie Lampkin, into second.
