Under clear blue skies and uninterrupted sunshine, which is forecast to continue right through to Saturday / Sunday, preparations are very much underway for this weekend's UK World Trial that will take place at Nevis Range just outside Fort William – Scotland. Under the leadership of World famous course builder Martin Lampkin, a team of workers have been hard at it building three all new man-made hazards back in the start / finish area plus some fresh sections in the lower stream that borders the paddock.

Sections two, fourteen and fifteen will once again sit close to the main stage, with the final hazard incorporating a new double jump. This goes one better than last year's creation that brought the house down when Japanese rider and eventual day two winner Takahisa Fujinami – Repsol Montesa made his huge leap of faith. The arena sections have been carefully crafted by Martin's son and boulder expert Harry Lampkin under the watchful eye of ex World championship minder Woody Hole and promise to deliver extreme action once again.

In the lower stream Martin has managed to squeeze in two extra sections as well as making some more new hazards in the typically Scottish setting. Up the top of the mountain there will be five watery zones all of which can be easily accessed by the gondola. All in all everything is shaping up for round six of the 2011 SPEA FIM Trial World Championship to be even better than last year's award winning event, which means its got to be a must for all motorcycle fans.

Whilst advance tickets have now closed, tickets will be available on the gate throughout Saturday and Sunday. For further information please visit or call the event hotline on 0845 643 6756.
