    MRS Sherco trials rider Graham Jarvis took his second British Championship title at the weekend. Jarvis who returned to the British series this year after riding the Spanish Championship in 2004 made a welcome return and took a resounding victory.

    From the six rounds this year Jarvis won four of the rounds which helped him to his overall victory. Fellow MRS Sherco rider Sam Connor was looking strong throughout the year until the Penultimate round where he sustained a nasty crash dislocating his shoulder and forfeiting 2nd position in the overall Championship standings.

    Connor who took overall victory at the infamous Scottish Six Day Trial back in May has had an astounding year on board the Sherco and gained many successes, his most promising year to date, it was a real disaster for Connor's year to end the way it has.

    Jarvis who now lives in Harrogate, N Yorks and was originally from Canterbury, Kent was delighted with his season so far commenting 'It's been a tough year so far and some things haven't run as smoothly as I would have liked them to. It was a good feeling to take the British Championship win again and has certainly given me more confidence as I head into the winter months. I haven't had the year all my own way and was pushed hard at most of the events. I will be working on my training schools during the winter with various different people all over the country (for more information on training schools please e-mail I'd like to thank Malcolm and Rhoda Rathmell and Sherco for all their help and support throughout the British Championship season.'

    The two MRS Sherco riders were given the honour of representing Great Britain in this year's Trials Des Nations in Italy where the team consisting of four riders gained a fantastic second place overall. Connor backed up Jarvis' comments by saying 'It had been a great year for me up to the Championship round in Scotland where I got injured. I was running the highest position that I ever have done in the British Championships and I was gutted when I got hurt again. I sustained a similar injury last year, and now they will have to operate on me again at the end of this season. It was a great feeling to win the Scottish Six Days as it's such a massive event in the Trials calendar it was a great honour for me to achieve this win. Hopefully I will be back fit again soon and back out on my bike, a big thanks to everyone at MRS and Sherco plus my other sponsors who have helped me through the year.'

    The two riders will be in action at the MRS Open Day at Harefield Hall, Pateley Bridge on December 3rd where all models of the 2006 Sherco will be available to test to all the public. For more information contact your nearest Sherco Dealer of MRS on -01423 772885 or
