This book includes some of the greats of the scrambling world – Dave Bickers, John Banks, Rob Taylor – and others not, perhaps, quite so well known. From the hard-riding Devon farmer John Trible, Gloucester ace Tommy Barker, and Six Days trials star Eric Chilton, to the last ever interview with Olga Kevelos, a true star.

About the author (2014)

After nearly forty years of riding motorbikes, Andy Westlake is one of the UK’s leading motorcycle magazine journalists. He contributes to leading monthly magazines such as The Classic Motorcycle, Classic Dirt Bike and Motorcycle Sport and Leisure in the UK, and also classic and off-road magazines in France, the USA, and Australia. He attended his first motorcycle sports event as an eight year old in 1961, and it is the bikes and people of that era that he writes so passionately about. He has competed with great success in classic long distance trials, and as recently as 2006 won a gold medal in the Lands End trial on his Cheney Triumph. Andy has also toured extensively on Guzzi twins, including a coast-to-coast trip across the USA.
