The first book I came across was this. The "must have" for all 1970's trials riders.



This edition is a 1974 print and whilst all the photos depict Sammy Miller demonstrating techniques on his Bultaco the preface page has a Bultaco team photo with the note. "Runners change with the years. Sam was with Bultaco to the close of 1973. In April 1974 he was retained by Honda Europe to expand their trials side by developing machines and managing their trials team."

I have that book! In fact, I have an autographed version with his signature on the cover. I bought it WAY back in 1974 when I was just thinking about Trials and just after giving up on Surfing. I got tired of "Weather Related Sports" and a lot of wasted time waiting for the weather to change... YUK!
