SILSDEN rider Dougie Lampkin is delighted to have extend his deal with Vertigo Motors for a further two years.

Having been an integral part of the Vertigo project since its initial inception, 41-year-old Lampkin has played an important role in the development of the Spanish brand over the last four years.

The 12-time FIM Trial world champion has continued to show his ability with a consecutive hat-trick of victories at the famous Scottish Six Days Trial (SSDT) aboard the Vertigo Combat model.

Dougie gave the Combat a dream debut back in 2015 when he took his win for Vertigo on the then prototype machine before confirming both his and the bike's pedigree with follow-up victories last year and this.

Using his many years of experience, Dougie recorded an historic double this year as he captured not only the SSDT, his 11th in total, but also won the famous Scott Trial – a feat that has only been achieved by an elite few.

While this year may have been Dougie's most successful season in terms of competition since joining Vertigo, 2016 saw the longest serving Red Bull UK athlete complete one of the biggest achievements of his long and decorated career. Lampkin became the first rider to successfully wheelie the entire 37 miles of the iconic Isle of Man mountain TT course on board a heavily modified and adapted Combat.

Over the next two years, as well as continuing his development work across the ever increasing Vertigo range, Dougie will also extend his role as brand ambassador and attend World Championship events as sport team manager in order to support the new line-up of factory riders.

Lampkin, who will continue to compete in selected classic events, said: "I think it goes without saying, that I am very happy to have signed for another two years with Vertigo.

"Over the last four years we have enjoyed a close and successful relationship in many different ways, including developing the bike, building the brand and winning the odd trial too.

"I am very much looking forward to the next two years and beyond, when I am sure we will continue to work in the same way and achieve more success together, including a couple more Scottish wins hopefully."
