The World Trial - Double Lift Day

The skies were a little more clear the next day, but one could get away from the fact that the ground was saturated. These plonkers were one of many who had to have Mr. John Deere help them out of a mess.

These guys were worm hunting.

The final day were filled with top notch handlers and their dogs....who would win?

Would it be Kevin Evans and Mirk?

Denis Birchall and Bill?

It was really any one's game.

Serge van der Zweep and Eve prayed before their run.

People like Cristine Clarkson made sure the days event went without a hitch.

All the runs were videotaped. There were some speculations throughout the day, and some favorites came to the post - but in the end, it was any one's game. Serge and Eve were the front runners for most of the day.

Some spectators had a better viewing advantage than others.

Micheal Gallagher and Cap tried to come on top again. By the end of the day, he would settle for third place.

Tom Lawrenson and Clyde was fourth overall.

Lyle Lad and her dog Shep was the only woman handler in the finals.

Unfortunately a grip at the shed would end their run.

Tommy Wilson and Sly was in the same boat, which sunk in the shedding ring as well.

The skulls and crossbones flag marked the end of Tommy's run.

James McGee and Becca would ultimately be the ones to show all others.

His run was to be placed down in the annals of history. Or least on BBC 4's video tapes.

James would have to be interviewed by Mr. Mutton Chops himself.

The day ended with all the countries being asked to partake in the ceremonies.

James McGee and Becca - the best in the world!

After the crowning of the champion, it was homeward bound for all. A quick wash of the boots was in order for many.

In the end, the real heroes were the tractor drivers.

Look out - 2014 World Trial will be here before you know it. Will I be tempted to come back? Darn right I will!!
