Bio

Dougie Lampkin is a trials bike legend. Indeed, he is renowned throughout the world as the upstart who showed the big boys how it was done. Born into a family already steeped in motorbike history – his father Martin was the first ever trials world champion in 1975 – Dougie rode into the limelight in the late eighties, astride a trials bike that looked way too big for him on a TV series called Junior Kickstart. Before long, Dougie had taken trials biking to a new level, both in terms of skill and public interest.

Dougie’s first major victory came at the European championships in 1993 and he has since accumulated a trophy cabinet most international sportsmen would struggle to match. In 2003, Dougie won his 12th individual world trials title – with seven coming outdoors and five indoors. More recently, Dougie turned his hand to the discipline of Enduro and has competed in some of the world’s toughest Enduro events, including the Red Bull Hare Scramble and Red Bull Romaniacs. His successes are further testament to just how rounded and skilled a rider Dougie is and why he is held in such high regard in the motorsport world.

Recently, Doug has enjoyed teaching at his annual Master Class - Summer Trials school.

Dougie has started a partnership with a Spanish company to work on the Vertigo project, which will see the emergence of an exciting new trials bike and brand in the near future. He shares his excitement: "Having the opportunity to work on a project from the start is very exciting and one I am really looking forward to. There is a lot of work to be done, though I am sure that with the passion that exists within the team, we will be able to bring this to life and reach our targets." We're looking forward to follow Doug's new adventure!
