TrialGP Zelhem, Netherlands
It was exactly 40 years ago when the World championship last visited the Netherlands and it didn't disappoint for its return in Zelhem in 2019. An immaculate organisation, awesome man-made sections on a small closed course and a lot of dutch trials fans. The hot Summer weather in Zelhem made Sunday's trial physically demanding on the riders bodies.
Franzi Kadlec had the fastest time in QLF but an unfortunate dab about 1mtr before the finish put him back to 6th.
Pau Martinez in section 14.

It was a big step up for Mattheeuws in Zelhem. Live and learn.
