SSDT release results of ballot

The Scottish Six Days Trial which takes place on 7-12 May, 2018 was massively oversubscribed with 510 entrants for 280 places.

Given the excellent weather at the 2017 event, the organisers braced themselves for a bumper entry and it certainly lived up to that expectation.

Entrants began to be informed on Wednesday 27th December if they were successful or not by e-mail.

The organisers have a hard job when it comes to administrating the initial entries, but SSDT Secretary, Mieke de Vos told Trials Guru: “Unsuccessful entrants shouldn’t take it personally and we always have an attrition rate of around 10% pre-trial with 25 to 30 entrants dropping out for various reasons. We run the ballot to be as fair as we can, but as everyone knows we cannot fit 510 into 280, it’s as simple as that”.

Entrants are urged to check their e-mail spam filters to make sure that contact has been made, but please be patient and follow the instructions issued by the SSDT carefully. Please do not contact the organisers until after 1st January 2018.
