EVEN at the age of 40, Silsden's Dougie Lampkin continues to rewrite the history books as he added a record-extending tenth Scottish Six Days Trial (SSDT) victory to his cv.

To put his latest achievement into context, no other rider has won the crown more than five times in over a century since the event started.

Having been the youngest rider to win it, aged 18 in 1994, he has now become the eldest at 40 this year.

And his latest success had extra significance, coming just a month after the death of his father Martin from cancer.

Martin's absence from Fort William last year due to him undergoing treatment for his illness had been tough enough for Dougie, as his dad had been an important figure at his side throughout his career.

But this year was even more difficult and painful for him.

The Red Bull-backed former world trials champion's participation in the SSDT to defend his title was in serious doubt until three weeks prior to the start. Knowing that Martin would have wanted him to ride, Dougie made the brave decision to attempt to win a tenth Scottish title.
