2019 SSDT Rider Numbers Revealed

carlos casas 2019 ssdt storyIn a break with tradition popular Catalan, Carlos Casas will start the 2019 SSDT to mark his 30th Scottish The 2019 Scottish Six Days Trial is now less than a month away and the build-up to this most famous of motorcycle Trials continues this week with the release of the rider’s competition numbers by the organising Edinburgh and District club. A total of 281 numbers have been allocated and, whilst there may still be some last minute changes, this is effectively the final entry list.

Tradition has been for a Scottish rider to start the event each year, but this year that tradition will be broken as the first man to be flagged away from the Fort William Parc Ferme at 7.30am on Monday, 6th May will be respected Catalan, Carlos Casas - Vertigo. The honour of riding with the No 1 plate not only marks Carlos’ 30th start in the event but is recognition from the club for the decades he has spent as the Trial’s Catalonian ambassador. There is no doubt that he has made a major contribution to the popularity of the SSDT in Spain.

The first of the nine women contenders, Bristol's Victoria Payne - Sherco, starts at number 21, whilst a certain Dougie Lampkin - Vertigo, aiming for an incredible 13th (or 12 + 1 as he calls it!) SSDT victory is number 73. His long-time friend and former event winner Amos Bilbao - Montesa is number 75 whilst Francesc Moret  Montesa who must be a favourite for the Best Foreign Rider award is number 77.

It is often said that the Scottish can be won and lost on Ben Nevis on the final day and that’s exactly what happened to James Dabill – Beta in 2018 when, after leading the Trial all week, his tyre came off the rim during one of the final sections of the event. It was cruel luck, but that’s the Scottish and reigning British Champion, James is back riding number 111 to try again for a third Premier award in the greatest Trial in the World.

Women’s Trial World Champion, Emma Bristow - Sherco starts at number 131 and while there's no Scottish rider at the front of the field this year, there is at the back with local Lochaber club member, Gary Maclennan.- Beta playing tail-end Charlie and carrying the number 281 plate.

This is just the tip of the 280 rider iceberg and we'll catch up with more of the eclectic International entry as the 2019 SSDT approaches.
