Just lovin’ these race photos of Triumphs used in anger at the ‘Trials. It seems a waxed jacket is correct dress for the conditions expected: wet and muddy. Big off-road boots too. Jim Sandiford (above) gravelly cornering in style on his Cheney 504 Triumph. Darned good looking motorbike.

Dennis Glover of the Metropolitan Police team in ’73 zooms through the undergrowth. Slow and fast riding of the Saint Trophy specials.

A good film to watch some of these exploits is Bruce Browns 1971 documentary ‘On Any Sunday’ which, amongst other two-wheeled adventure, show off Malcolm Smiths excellence in any realm on a moto.
