Tommorrow the World’s greatest riders and their respective teams will arrive at Nevis Range, Fort William – Scotland for the sixth round of the 2011 SPEA FIM Trial World Championship. This weekend marks the second consecutive year that Nevis Range has hosted a leg of the World series and if the 2010 UK World Trial was anything to go by, then this year’s event promises to be one not to be missed.

The festivities kick off on Saturday morning when spectators will be treated to an abundance of two-wheeled talent. Once the riders have put their bikes through technical control they will be on hand to sign autographs, before practising in anticipation for Sunday’s main event. Saturday afternoon visitors will bare witness to the awesome finale of the much talked about Highland Challenge, in which ex World champions Dougie Lampkin and Takahisa Fujinami will go head to head in order to settle the score once and for all.

In addition to this, World famous Steve ‘Mr Showtime’ Colley will perform his unique display of trials based tricks. Ex British Trials Champion Steve Saunders will also be in attendance with his distinguished training school, passing on some of his vast knowledge to the next generation of riders. The day will come to a close with a true clash of the titans as Colley and Saunders do battle once again in an unmissable event billed as Steve vs Steve.

Sunday morning will mark the start of the championship action proper as over fifty riders from all over the World will compete on the mountain course. Keeping up with the action could not be easier with a group of seven sections located close to the paddock and three man-made hazards actually at the start / finish area. The gondola will whisk spectators up the mountain to enjoy four more hazards, which are set in one of the most stunning locations on the planet and all within a short walk of the top station, which boasts its own restaurant and play area.

All in all it promises to be a great weekend for all the family!
