Jordi - 25 years

25 Years of Jordi Tarres. Nice little video. Oh I do remember all his glory years. Watched Avalaha beat him in Watkins Glenn for the world title, a small blip in 7 or 8 years of dominance.

Nice video. Hard now to believe that is 25 years ago!

Tarres was another one of those great, dominant Spanish riders who left their mark on the sport, and you can see we are well into the "hop n' bounce" era of trials by then... as the bikes became the lightweight, disc-braked, monoshock machines that would allow this. The Beta TR34 is a great looking bike and obviously very capable for the time. Still looks like a traditional trials bike too! What a difference from the 300+ lb trials lumps of 25 years before THAT, when trials bikes were only just starting to develop into something capable!

Hey, easy now. Don't go upsetting ATeam. He'll just go around kicking down chairs and knocking down tables in a restaurant. In a west end town. Call the police, there is an ATeam around. Run 'im down, underground, to a dive (Trial) in a west end town......


All 1985-based jokes aside, nice vid Tony!
