If there’s one thing even better than rows and rows of bikes to look at, it’s the same bikes being ridden properly by some true classic biking legends...
Classic Dirt Bike experience at show

Bert White and Henry Gaunt (in chair) at Stafford showed that trials isn't just about two wheels

A show is made up of many elements and these days it’s not enough simply to have bikes to look at. These machines were made to move and, in the Classic Dirt Bike Experience, move is what they do.

The first tentative steps to action rather than remaining static were taken a few shows ago with a trials demo courtesy of Dales Classic MCC, and it was so well received that it instantly became a feature of both April and October shows.

In case you need reminding – or perhaps this is your first show – the Classic Dirt Bike Experience is near the trade gate in and around the Staffordshire Life Hall. Inside the hall will be the rows of classic, twinshock and Evo machines that make up the off-road sporting scene, while outside a selection of these bikes will be seen doing what they were intended to do.

To add in to this there will be an interview or two with a few notable names in the off-road world too, with multi-world trials champion and Bultaco legend Yrjo Vesterinen coming along, trials superstar Sammy Miller plus a few names not quite confirmed at the time of writing.

See you at the Classic Dirt Bike Experience!
