Carlo Ubiali, ISDT

I spent some time today surfing the net, looking for details of past motorcycle sporting events in Wales, with a view to visiting the sites, and possibly riding some of the road sections. I came across a reference to Carlo Ubbiali, 125cc MV Agusta.

It seems that the great man took part in the 1949 International Six Days Trial, which took place in mid-Wales. He had quite an eventful time, as he was recorded as having the first reported accident - on the first day, he collided with a small car. Later on, he ran over a rabbit, stopped to pick up the corpse, and finished the stage carrying it on his petrol tank! I would guess his bike was a two-stroke single.

Despite the distractions, he finished in 5th place in the 125cc class.

True Italian flair!
