Bernie Returns in June

1979 FIM World Trials Champion, Bernie Schreiber, the only American to win the championship, makes a welcome return to the Highland Classic and Alvie Estate this year!

Bernie is celebrating 45 years since his history changing win, having defeated 3 times world champion, Yrjo Vesterinen, also a former guest of the Highland Classic.

Bernie stated on his facebook page: “I am delighted my entry has been accepted to ride the 2024 Highland Classic Two Day Trial – BSA/Triumph Edition.
This will be my third attendance since 2019 on an SWM, 2023 on Bultaco and a BSA for 2024.
Thank you to John Moffat for the opportunity once again to ride one of your unique machines.
My thanks also to the Inverness & District Motor Cycle Club for organising the The Friendliest Classic Trial in Scotland. – See you in Scotland!”

Entries open on Feb 1st

The entry forms for the 2024 Highland Classic Two Day Trial – BSA / Triumph Edition will be available from 8pm on Thursday 1st February.

This year we will keep the entries open for a week, so that everyone that would like to take part can submit their entry. No payment at this point is required, entry fees are collected by bank transfer when the entries are confirmed direct to the entrant.

The entry fee has been increased a little this year due to insurance premium increases and it will be £75.00 per rider.


In the event that the trial is over-subscribed, a ballot of 160 places will be undertaken.
