At the Presentation Night on 19th January, Middlesbrough & DMC member, Kevin Tate, was awarded the Wilkinson Sword in recognition of his efforts during 2017.
A very competitive and consistent trials rider Kevin was voted 2017 Rider of the Year.
In 2017 Middlesbrough & DMC entered a team on the Scottish Six Day Trial. Kevin got a first class award, finishing in a very respectable 125th place riding his Beta.
Also at his first attempt, riding the toughest event in the world, The Scott Trial, he finished a creditable 77th out of around 200 starters. He was awarded the Jack Gash Memorial Trophy for the Best performance by a Middlesbrough & DMC member on the same machine.
