NEW VERTIGO DOUGIE LAMPKIN REPLICA

The new DL Replica, available in 250cc & 300cc Versions, is an evolution of last years hugely successful model. It has been created thanks to Dougie’s vast wealth of knowledge & experience gained whilst winning his 12 World Tittles. In addition to which we can add his 4 straight victories of the SSDT & recent back to back victories of the Scott Trial, always aboard a Vertigo.

All of this unrivalled experience & expertise has been channeled directly into the designing and building of this new DL Replica.

Dougie has spent endless hours working very closely together with our team of Engineers at the Vertigo Factory. Intensively testing and refining the bike during the past months. This has enabled us to build the most responsive, agile, smooth and refined Vertigo to date.

The bike is a true replica in the sense that all of Dougie’s own personal preferences in frame & suspension geometry, power delivery & map settings have been incorporated into this new model. As well as all of these personal settings the bike is loaded with a wealth of high-end racing components.

The Tech Racing front forks in combination with the multi adjustable Reiger rear shock provide extremely smooth and responsive feedback to the rider. Whilst also allowing any rider to further fine tune their suspension set up depending on their individual riding style.

The cylinder head is a new design, optimised to Dougie’s personal preference. As is the throttle body. These linked with a 366g flywheel weight kit ensure an extremely smooth and controllable power delivery.

The Titanium exhaust is also unique to this model. And of course, the Renthal bars have always been Dougie’s own personal choice of handle bar. A two position mapping switch allows the rider to instantly switch between,

Dougie’s two most versatile personal maps.

The red anodised wheel rims, triple clamps, frame & engine parts give the bike a distinctive racing look & set it aside from all other models. Whilst the carbon-fibre engine case guards, as well as protecting vulnerable parts of the engine help to add to the factory look of this bike.

The frame benefits from reinforcement to key areas and is finished in a classy matt black.

The new red, black, white, and green graphics give a fresh and unique look to the bike whilst at the same time keeping true to Vertigo Motors traditionally colour scheme. You will also find Dougie’s personal logo in many areas of the bike with his most prestigious victories and his own signature prominently displayed on the airbox cover. And to finish off and leave no one in doubt as to who’s replica bike this is, each Dougie Lampkin Replica will come with it’s own custom DLR work mat to match the bike and its own Limited Edition engraved metal plate.

The Vertigo Factory will produce only 50 exclusive units for World Wide distribution. Therefore this model is a true Limited Edition bike, which only a few lucky people World Wide will have the chance of owning.

BUSTO AND CASALES GET CLOSE TO THE PODIUM AT TRIALGP NETHERLANDS

The Netherlands hosted the 3rd round of the 2019 TrialGP World Championship last weekend leaving the best outcome so far fo the Vertigo Factory Team, as both Jaime Busto and Jorge Casales delivered a great performance that saw them fight for podium positions until the last stages of the Trial, with Busto showing he is getting better and better aboard his new Vertical R and Casales showing his true potential.

It was Busto who got closer to the box. After struggling at TrialGP Japan Qualifying session, what made both days of competition extremely demanding, in the Netherlands he was able to secure a great 3rd place that made things far easier for him on Sunday. At Zelhem he was able to make a new step forward in terms of regularity and competitiveness, minimizing the gap with the Top 3 and keeping his podium chances alive until the end of the trial. He finished with 23 marks, what would have been enough to get a solid 4th place if it wasn’t for a time penalty of 5 extra marks, that eventually dropped him to 5th place just one mark behind Fujinami.

Jorge Casales confirmed that he is in a great shape. On Saturday he took a conservative strategy during qualifying, securing a mistake-free ride to get an 8th place. On Sunday he was one man to watch for the podium since the trial kicked off, specially after the opening lap, in which he only left 9 marks and was placing 4th in the provisional standings trailing 2nd place by just 3 points. Lap 2 was again a demonstration of his potential, but this time two maximums in the last two sections prevented him of finishing the Trial in a better place than 6th, just one spot behind Busto. With no time to rest, the two will be heading to Belgium by the end of this week for round 4 of the series, where they expect to confirm their great progression.

In the Trial2 class Lorenzo Gandola didn’t have the day he was expecting. The talented Italian struggled all day long and didn’t find his pace. A tough lap 1 with too many mistakes opened a big gap between him and the leaders, and even a better second run through the 15 sections of the trial wasn’t enough to recover all the lost ground, so he had to settle with a 14th place.

Pau Martínez neither enjoyed a successful Trial despite delivering two solid laps, 10 and 13 marks, but this time this wasn’t just enough to be fighting for the podium like he has been doing since the opening round in Italy. A 7th place isn’t what the Spanish rising star was hoping for, but he will have a great opportunity to bounce back in just a few days time at TrialGP Belgium

The TrialGP World Championship doesn’t stop, and as we mention, Belgium will hold the 4th round of the season and the second consecutive event of June next weekend.

FIRST PODIUMS OF THE SEASON FOR VERTIGO AT TRIALGP JAPAN

Japan hosted the second round of the 2019 TrialGP World Championship. The amazing facilities of the Twin Ring Motegi complex received the best riders of the world to celebrate one of the most iconic events of the calendar, being this Grand Prix the only one to feature a two-day race format.

That is why the Qualification Sessions were held on Friday, as Saturday and Sunday were set to be the two point-paying days of the weekend. Jorge Casales got an excellent fifth place, but it wouldn’t be the same for Busto, who lost a crucial mark on the second run through the section that left him in 11th place, a starting position that would be a huge handicap to overtake taking into account the slippery and muddy conditions the race was going to resume the next day due to the heavy rain that joined the competition during Friday.

Despite being the 5th rider in the starting order, Busto managed to minimize the damage on which was a tough opening lap to then score a solid second one and finish in hard-fought 7th place. Jorge Casales also enjoyed a positive day 1, the Spaniard was looking forward to bounce back after a disappointing TrialGP Italy and was mentally prepared to give again his best at the helm of the Vertical R. He finished just one spot behind his teammate Busto with the same punctuation, 98.

On day 2 Casales got even better. He fought for the podium since the beginning of the Trial, with two consistent laps that saw him riding at a great level. He ended up in 5th place, missing 4th by just one mark. On the other hand Busto would experience a similar trial to day 1, with many struggles in his first lap but bouncing back in the second one with a fantastic score of only 14, the third-best of that second run. In the end, he would eventually come home in the same 7th position he got on Saturday.

Berta Abellán and the complete TrialGP Women roster made the trip to Japan to race their first World Championship event of the year, as they didn’t take part in the previous round in Pietramurata. The 2018 Vice World Champion missed the podium on day 1, she was fourth, 6 marks behind the 3rd spot, but her second lap was quite an insinuation of what day 2 could have in store for the Vertigo Factory rider. Although Sunday didn’t start well either, 30 marks on lap 1 dropped her out of the provisional Top 3, Abellán delivered an impressive second lap, in which she matched Emma Birstow’s punctuation of 10 marks, that finally let her move up to a well-deserved 2nd place.

In the Trial2 class there was again an intense battle for the Top spots. Impressive result by local hero Akira Shibata, who got an outstanding 7th place that proved the great level of the Japanese Vertigo riders. Lorenzo Gandola was 12th, loosing his chances to reach a Top 10 position in the last four sections. David Avendaño finished 22nd. On Sunday Gandola was the best of them thanks to his 9th, Akira Shibata couldn’t replicate his Saturday’s performance and was 15th, while David Avendaño finished his weekend in Japan with a 25th.

The other podium for Vertigo arrived from the Trial125 class thanks to the 3rd place wrapped up by Pau Martínez. Following what happened in Italy, the Spanish rising star had to settle with a 4th on day one, but Sunday finally brought him to the third step of the box after a brilliant performance aboard the Vertical R 125c.c. Martínez carried victory chances until the closing stages of the trial, as he only scored three more marks than the 2nd and 5 more than the winner. After two Grand Prix Pau Martínez has already established himself as one of the references in the class.

The third round of the 2019 calendar will take place in two weeks time, the 22nd and 23rd of June, in Holland.
