The BBC’s much-loved Junior Kick Start style of trials competition is bouncing back at the Llangollen International Motorcycle Festival on Saturday July 23rd and Sunday July 24th, thanks to Llangollen and District Motorcycle Club (LLDMC).

The hugely popular Kick Start show aired from 1979 until 1988, with the original course laid out by Sammy Miller. The Junior Kick Start offshoot was hosted by Blue Peter’s Peter Purves and encouraged the talents of youngsters such as trials legend Dougie Lampkin.

Run against the clock, junior riders from the Llangollen club have to negotiate a series of obstacles without putting their feet down or stopping, plus there are time penalties.

LlanBikeFest co-organiser John Hutchinson said: “The Junior Kick Start event will provide plenty of action for spectators to watch and be a tough challenge for the young riders taking part.”
