Anticipation Builds Ahead Of 2016 SSDT

With now less than 24 hours until the 2016 Scottish Six Days Trial get underway, the Highland town of Fort William has literally been taken over by the Trials fraternity as riders, families, teams, spectators and all those involved in the organisation of this most famous of events prepare for another week of the challenges Scotland has to offer. As is traditional on the Sunday before the main event, there was the chaos of riders signing on this morning, followed by scrutineering where bikes are checked and marked and finally the highly popular parade of riders down Fort William High Street.

With the bikes now securely parked up in the parc ferme, it's an early night and a good rest for the competitors ahead of the challenging opening day tomorrow.
