Jake Long was introduced to the sport of Trial by neighbour Darren Cresswell of Logan Club around 3 x years ago. Jake has allready achieved great discipline through his martial arts training and has developed his skills on his Beta Evo 125 to easily ride the yellow line in local Trials along with his mates Billy Gough and Liam Allen. I look forward to Jake and his cohorts beating me on the red line some day soon...
Jake's dad Nigel has set up some good technical areas with culverts and pipes for him to practice extensions and all the various techniques we use. With "Arm Pump Creek" (named by Darren) next to the Long family home, Jake has the opportunity to work towards a very high level of riding.
