You might say that Sherco importer, Malcolm Rathmell, has the ‘magic’ touch when it comes to the Scottish Six Days Trial. Providing the support with his wife, Rhoda, they have continued to be involved in the winning ways from the start of his career right through to the modern era. ‘Rastus’ as he is known, first visited the event as a spectator in 1963 before he started his SSDT career in 1966 on a triumph Tiger Cub but retired with a broken rocker. 1967 would see him take a similar machine to a Special First Class award and he followed the trend over the next few years, though mounted on Greeves in 1968 and 1969 before joining the Spanish Armada in 1970 with Bultaco, taking his first top three finish on the prototype slim-line Kit Campeon model.
The magic of the Scottish Six Days Trial is so infectious that those who get the taste return to Fort William in the Highlands year after year to enjoy the magnetism of this legendary spectacle. No other event gives spectators a chance to watch the world's top trials stars for a whole week in such surroundings and no other motorcycling location offers such breath-taking scenery.
