Trials Riders' Testimonials
Stuart Calder (Nelson, NZ)
Stuart, a real estate developer with a passion for BMW adventure touring, contacted Stephen for some one-on-one training, to prepare for a three month tour of Australia. With many miles of off-road riding ahead of him he wanted to use Steve's expertise to brush up on his riding techniques.
Stuart was full of praise for the coaching assistance of Stephen and thoroughly enjoyed his outing.
Upon his return he is keen for Stephen to check out his BMW (a real bike). He also says he intends to do more trials riding and may even invest in a good secondhand trials bike and invite his BMW friends to give it a go.
Yasuo Manzawa (Moto-journalist & Organiser, Ihatove Idemitsu Trial, Japan)
Stephen has done a wonderful job of his Trials Park and NonStop Adventure Tours. He is very professional in his approach and we look forward the visit of his team to the 30th Anniversary Idemitsu Trial as our special guests in August 2006. We hope to foster reciprocal visits of Japanese and New Zealand trials riders to our respective countries. New Zealand is a beautiful country and my time there in 2005 was a #1 experience for me.
Bill Hill (Sherburn in Elmet -England)
I have told the family and friends about your kindness to us on our visit and our local motorcycle clubs have included your information in their newsletters. I'm sure if any visit NZ in the future you will be contacted. NZ is the place they all want to visit. I'm sure you will have great success with NonStop Adventure as the word is spread far and wide. We will have to stay longer next time!
Bob Cooke (Nelson , NZ)
"I have been involved with Trials for over 50 years and I'm absolutely delighted now to see what Steve has got set up here for the future coaching of trials in this country."
Bob, in his 70's, was the founder of Motorcycle Trials Associations in NZ. He is a life member of Motorcycle New Zealand. He only recently retired from National Championship events, but is still highly motivated and involved in the sport. His experience and knowledge are highly valued as clubs work to increase funding for their sport in New Zealand.
Bruce Davidson (Davidson Honda, Alexandra, New Zealand)
I recently hosted the NonStop team in Alexandra for the Blossom Festival and witnessed a great display of Trials riding both on Monty Trials pushbikes and Montesa Trials Motorbikes. It was a real crowd pleaser and we look forward to their return next year.
