Rob Shepherd – By Rob Edwards!

Trials Guru recently received a package from Rob Edwards and we thought that our readers would be interested in seeing them for the very first time!

Here we have a couple of photos that haven’t seen the light of day, virtually since they were taken back in 1977.

It shows Rob Shepherd outside the Montesa factory at Esplugues in Barcelona on the short-stroke factory Honda RTL300. In the other photo it shows left to right: A Montesa factory mechanic; Nigel Birkett and Brian Fowler watching Shepherd in action.

The rocks that Rob is practicing on were put there on the instructions of Pere Pi.
