Two Ex Champions to resume battle.
Although Jack Price will be dressed in green and black as a new recruit to the Vertigo Team, these two riders, pictured at Brimham Rocks in 2019, start as hot favourites to walk away with the coveted Keedwell ACU Trial GB crown at the end of the season.
Whilst 2019 champion, Jack Price has to refine his riding style to suit the Vertigo machine, James Dabill can use his previous Beta experience to the full.
However, Price, who has been training in various parts of Spain including the Vertigo boss's residence in Camprodon and taking a skiing break, is confident that the gap between "Dibs" and the rest of the entry, especially in the UK, is as close as it could be.
Of course, it is not just these two who can fight for the title when the season ends in mid August. Toby Martyn is full of confidence and his switch to TRRS will make him even more determined and the Peace Bros, Dan and Jack, (Sherco) just need to introduce some consistency to mount a serious challenge.
We must not forget ex Trial 125 World Champion, Billy Green (Montesa) and ex Trial 2 World Champion, Iwan Roberts (TRRS) who can easily make the podium at any event.
For 2020, with a smaller group of riders in the ACU Trial GB class, it is just one ballot for starting positions throughout the season - and this could be crucial to the final outcome.
The first round is at Hookwood in Surrey on SATURDAY March 7th.
