Jitsie founder and owner Jan Cardinaels

Jitsie founder Jan Cardinaels explained what the agreement means to him and the brand. “Like so many trials riders around the World the SSDT is one of my favourite events of the year, and remains special to us as a brand as we have enjoyed some amazing victories with our long time Jitsie rider Dougie Lampkin. After a two-year absence, everyone is looking forward to being back in Fort William, so we are extremely proud to be a key partner of the SSDT for the next three editions at least.”

Speaking on behalf of the Edinburgh and District Motor Club – Mark Whitham added: “Jitsie is a brand that we know well through its long involvement of supporting riders at the SSDT and that is dedicated to the sport of trials, so the new partnership seemed an obvious extension of their relationship with our event. Our officials will be easily identified in their new Jitsie clothing, which will assist in lifting the overall image of SSDT, whilst the live coverage will certainly help promote and amplify the trial and the region to all corners of the globe.”
