Off Road

Trevor Campbell makes a name for himself at the Force Accessories Wildwood Extreme

Posted:

Trials riders came to the fore at Sundays second running of the Force Accessories Wildwood Extreme Enduro with former World Champion Graham Jarvis taking the win and four time Australian Trials de Nations representative Trevor Campbell taking second.

As a privateer and relatively unknown rider Trevor Campbell was thrilled to have beaten home some of Australia's best and most successful off road riders but paid tribute to the skills and speed of Jarvis.

"I am rapt to be the first Aussie home, particularly in such a strong field of factory riders, but to be lapped by Graham shows just how much we all have to learn to be competitive on the world stage." Campbell said.

Campbell aboard his Beta RR350 has only just made the transition from trials to enduro and is already making quite a name for himself.

Campbell was placed second outright and first expert in the Flowerberg Extreme enduro held near Erica in September and finished 4th in Expert 2 class in his first attempt at the Victorian Off Road Championship.

"I am really enjoying the challenge of enduros but I particularly love the extreme events." Campbell enthused. "The trials skills really help me with these events and the Beta 350 is the ideal bike for the tough stuff. It is powerful enough to climb even the biggest hills and yet it is light and nimble enough to float over the technical obstacles. It doesn't wear you out like the bigger bikes." he added.

Campbell was also humbled by the enormous support he received from his club, the Leongatha Motorcycle Club, who charter a bus for members to attend the event. They gave Campbell a tremendous boost as they cheered him on every lap, at the finish line and presentation.

Although Campbell gets assistance with his bike from Beta Motorcycles Australia he has no other official sponsors, something a savvy businessman might smart to change.
