finish marker 250wSince its origin in 1909 no motorcycle trial has captured the imagination of rider and spectator in the same way as the Scottish Six Days Trial.  The SSDT lures entrants from all corners of the globe and has the same status to trials riders as the Isle Of Man TT has to road racers.  Throw in some world champion motorcyclists, the most spectacular scenery Scotland has to offer, and a route to challenge the stamina of the fittest, and that's the SSDT.

Every rider should take time to stop at the top of some of the hills that the trial covers to admire the majestic scenery – to walk to some of the places that the route covers takes hours or even days.  It is a privilege to be allowed to ride a bike over some of the most breath-taking scenery in Britain.  In good weather it's awesome, and in bad weather it is even more so.  In a word, it's spectacular.

It is one of the few events where everyday trials riders get to compete on equal terms with professional and world-class riders.  The trial has a reputation for  being the toughest in the world, and it is the most prestigious event that a trials rider can win. Competing in the Scottish Six Days Trial is the dream of every young trials rider, and long may that continue.
