Talking with Trebor who won this last year, he was struggling to think of another challenge.

So we are taking it to Germany to be presented on the last night.

The challenge will be on one of the ride-outs. I will ask one of the organisers to officiate.



I will carry it over and the winner, will bring it back and arrange for a new challenge next year.

Cheers, Ivan

Is there anything we need to prepare for, other than just announcing the winner according whatever rules are related to this trophy?

Nothing to prepare for Lars.

The compitition will be either
the most accurate milage
or the furthest travelled or
the best looking bike or
the dirtiest bike
or the biggest belly

as judged by one of yourselves.

I want to keep people guessing.

I think it should go to torquemaster considering the problems he's had with the ex. Stormey's engine/gearbox overhaul ....................................

Excluded by not being a member of FB (safety/security reasons I won't discuss here). Any chance of the result being posted on the awarding forum?
