1913 ACU Six Days’ Trial

The 1913 Six Days’ Trial was actually a five days trial followed by a day’s post-mortem. The event was tough enough for competitors to stage a strike meeting and following the trial complaints flew thick and fast. But the presence of a French team (which only survived for two days) justifies calling this the first International Six Day Trial. Read all about it…

“Waiting outside the Penrith control on the second day of the trials. Among the riders may be seen WH Eggleton (6hp Enfield sidecar), DM Brown (3½hp Rover), C Lester (3½hp P&M), FC North (3½hp Ariel) and one of The Motor Cycle representatives.”
