Mick Doohan was on an Air Cooled Yamaha Mono, not sure if it was a 250 or 350 '84 - '85 era.

He was on a TY 350 belonging to Brett McAntee. Sherco Qld used a couple of pictures from that night as a guess who a few years ago. I will revive that thread so you can see the pics

Having a bit of a look through wikipedia as I sometimes do and noticed that former world champion moto gp rider Kevin Schwantz started out as a trials rider. He wasn't the most awarded rider titles wise but he was one of the most intense competitors I have ever seen. It was no surprise to read that the FIM actually retired his trademark racing number 34 when he retired

Interesting photo on the Kevin Schwantz facebook page. Kevin and Valentino Rossi are pictured together and Kevin is wearing an Adam Raga T shirt. Good to see he is showing support. =D>

Just seen another one on Trial Club facebook page. Kevin is pictured with Tony Bou and is wearing a different coloured Adam Raga shirt. He is really flying the flag for Adam. =D> =D>

Great to see Casey Stoner taking such good care of his head in a top of the line Bell Moto 9 helmet.

Also being such a long term Wollongong fella I can remember the Corser family all on TY Yamaha's back in the 70's.
Including one of their son's called Troy who went on to win a couple of World Super bike championships. =D> =D>
