Well we made it back, six lambretta started the endurance but only three completed. One dropped out because they didn't like the competitive nature of the event, one dropped out as "it wasn't his cup of tea". This is seriously hardcore and I was no way fit enough to do a hill climb on the second stage and had to be hauled to the top in a pick up. on the descent from 2500m i had an accident and broke my left thumb so I dropped out. Congratulations to Thomas fro Italy who won, Laurant from France who came second, and our own Martin Robinson who came third.
We are going back next year and I need to do some serious work on my weight, fitness and chain smoking.
Special thanks to Jarv at Lambretta Rehab for building a bullet proof engine and Sash for the dyno work setting things up.
We are in the process of sorting out a van for next year so the scooters can travel before the riders who can fly out. Watch this space.
If yo want more information contact Martin Robinson or me

Great effort all of you, braver than I am ;) I have seen the footage on FB and it did look pretty severe. Some impressive hammer work by Martin on those rims, ally ones I presume?

Yep well done Jim and the others taking part. I kept up to speed with it on FB as well. It’s was shocked by the amount of battering the wheels and exhaust got on Martin’s scoot. Ground clearance and stronger wheel rims for next year! Looked a great event and pretty hardcore in parts. Sorry about your off. Hope you’re recovering.

I was in Spain for the new year and the organiser of the Nomad Rally came over to see Pilar and I.

This years Nomad Rally will be less based on endurance of man and machine but will involve some strategy and planning as well because it will be more of a time trial. The Daily stages will be shorter and there will be a compulsory rest stop roughly half way the rider is expected to make this stop by a certain time; you loose points if you are late. Along each stage there are Way Points where you can photograph your scooter in front of a particular landmark, a building a tree etc you will have to find. Each photograph correctly taken gains the rider points to add to there total.

The strategy comes with taking the photo's but not being late to the stop and loosing points.

To add to the fun there will be more sand riding and that takes a particular skill I have yet to gain. There will be one mountain stage as well.

I have started my fitness regime already in a slow way; if you know me you'll know why I started so early
