DOUGIE LAMPKIN AND JAIME BUSTO WIN THE INTERNATIONAL 2 DAYS CAMPRODON TRIAL

It was an excellent weekend at the Hotel Puig Francó and the Noassar Park facilities for the International 2 Days Camprodon Trial. At this very unique venue, perfect terrain conditions made for a fantastic event with Vertigo wrapping up two wins thanks to the great performances from Dougie Lampkin (Reds level) and Jaime Busto (Black level).

Activity at the paddock already started on Friday with the new Dougie Lampkin Replica presentation by de man himself. Lampkin was joined by the rest of the Factory squad including Jaime Busto, Berta Abellán, Pau Martínez, Hugo Dufrese and Ben Dignan to show for the first time, how this year’s bike looks like to all the attendees. Once in action, Lampkin proved to be in very well shape despite some pain to his hand by taking an impressive win in the Reds Class, leaving a single mark throughout the 2 days of competition to celebrate his new Replica debut at the top step of the podium.

Jaime Busto had a brilliant weekend too. The Spanish ace ended day 1 with only 2 marks, while on Sunday a 5 wouldn’t compromise his victory as he finally ended 10 marks ahead of 2nd. Reigning Trial125 World Champion Pau Martínez joined Busto on the podium in 3rd place with 19. Hugo Dufrese, who was delivering a strong performance inside the Top 3 was forced to retire due to a hard crash at the early stages of day 2. Luckily, after some medical inspections it seems he has no major injuries.

Berta Abellán also had an outstanding weekend placing 6th (14 marks) in Reds class, proving how competitive she currently is at the helm of the R3. Two positions ahead of Abellán finished Ben Dignan with 12 marks, 4 more than Alexz Wigg who stepped next to Lampkin on the podium ceremonies in 3rd. Alba Villegas, who was making his return to competition after a long time, finished in a fantastic 12th place, while Vertigo’s young prospect Nil Riera ended up in 24th.

Vertigo Factory riders will now focus in their final preparations ahead of the TrialGP World Championship, which is set to kick off on June 11th in Tolmezzo, Italy.

2021 DOUGIE LAMPKIN REPLICA

Vertigo Motors is proud to present the new, Limited Edition, 2021 Vertigo-Dougie Lampkin Replica. Available in 250, 280 and 300cc this new DL Replica has been revised extensively both internally and externally. It is the direct evolution of it’s already hugely successful predecessor. This new model benefits from a full year of technical advancements and developments following feedback from Dougie’s vast wealth of knowledge and experience gained whilst winning his 12 World Tittles. In addition to which we can add his 4 straight victories of the SSDT and other prestigious events such as the Scott Trial, always aboard a Vertigo. 

All of this unrivalled experience and 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 Factory. Intensively testing and refining the bike.

This has enabled us to build the most responsive, agile, smooth and refined DL Replica to date. The bike is a true replica in every sense as all of Dougie’s own, personal preferences in suspension geometry, power delivery and map settings have been incorporated into this latest model. As well as all of these personal settings the bike is loaded with a wealth of high-end racing components. 

The Tech Racing spec front forks in combination with the multi adjustable 3 way 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 revised for 2021 airbox helps to greatly increase engine performance. This is thanks to an increased volume and new apertures on the top of the airbox, providing better performance throughout the rev range, especially in lower RPM. 

There is a new clutch configuration for the 2021 D.L Replica with a new spring, pre-load and dimension of the clutch pack in order to virtually, eliminate clutch drag and offer a smoother gear selection.

Whilst the red anodised intercooler helps keep the engine at it’s optimum operating temperature.

Dougie’s personal preference in terms of throttle body and 366g flywheel weight ensure an extremely smooth and controllable power delivery. 

The Titanium exhaust with D.L logo is another signature feature 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 easily and instantly switch between Dougie’s two most versatile personal maps. 

The red anodised wheel rims, with black anodised billet hubs and triple clamps give the bike a distinctive racing look and set it aside from 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.

Vertigo’s signature multi-tubular frame is finished in a classy gloss white for this years edition. The new textured, two tone green, white and black 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 own signature prominently displayed on the new 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 its own Limited Edition engraved metal plate. Each bike will also come with a custom design D.L Replica Bike mat.

The Vertigo Factory will produce only 120 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.
