Jersey Rider - Richard Pallot.
Living in the South of the Island of Jersey, competing in the ACU Trial GB Series has it's challenges for twenty year old Richard Pallot, but coming from a Trials family background where father Tony and also Grandfather competed in Trials, makes a huge difference.
A Welder / Engineer by trade, Richard has been riding since he was six years old and along the way has won the Jersey Junior Championships, Brittany French S2 Championship and the coveted Jersey Two Day Trial last year. This has now gained him sponsorship on his Beta 300 from South West Trials,
Having the luxury of a practise area on his Grandfathers farm, Richard manages to practise weekly and his preferred type of sections are dry rock steps, so the forthcoming Tyneside Two day battle should suit him very much.
An exceptional final lap at the opening round of just five marks (one big one!) hoisted him into thirteenth position in the ACU Trial Expert Class as we go into round two next weekend.
His favourite World rider is Fujigas, whilst Dougie Lampkin is his British hero. Richard's aim is to gain experience in the remaining rounds of ACU Trial GB this season and to keep scoring good points.
