With now just one day to go before the sixth edition of the FIM Gala Ceremony, the Spanish city of Jerez this morning is beginning to welcome the FIM Legends who will join the current FIM World Champions on stage tomorrow evening at the Teatro Villamarta. Having flown in from the UK late last night Trial Legend Mick Andrews was pleased to wake up to warmer weather and is delighted at the prospect of meeting the other FIM Legends and FIM World Champions over the next two days.
Commenting Andrews said. “It seems like a long, long time since I was at the top of my career, although I am still riding now at the age of seventy one. I am proud to be here in Jerez and to have been asked to by the FIM to be part of what I am sure will be a wonderful occasion. It is a real dream come true to have the chance to meet the new FIM World Champions, as I still follow all the motorcycle sports with great interest.”
“I am really looking forward to meeting Toni Bou, as what he can do on a Trial bike is simply incredible and is not something that I ever thought would be possible. So it will be good to be able to shake his hand and congratulate him in person.”
