Martin Lampkin 19502016
Trials legend passes away after battle with cancer
TRIALS rider Harold Martin Lampkin passed away this weekend after a year-long battle with cancer.
Lampkin, better known by his middle name Martin, was 65 and passed away peacefully at his home in Silsden, West Yorkshire, surrounded by his immediate family.
His family said the following via the website Trials Central: ‘It is with deep regret that we inform you of the sad passing of Harold Martin Lampkin, better known as Martin Lampkin, who lost his cruel year-long plus battle with cancer earlier today at the age of sixty-five.’
Martin Lampkin was born on December 28, 1950 and after riding motorcycles from a young age, began to take part in trials competitions.
He won the 1973 European trials championship and the British trials championship before going on to win the first FIM Trial World Championship in 1975, when the European championship was changed to a world-level event.
Lampkin also won the notorious Scott Trial on four occasions and was a three-time winner of the British national trials championship. He was also one of the most successful riders to take part in the Scottish Six Days Trial, which he won on the three occasions during the 1970s.
He leaves behind his wife Isobel and sons Dougie and Harry.
Dougie Lampkin retires. Kind of.
