Bo’ness trials rider Mark McComisky rode into top place taking the flag at the Scottish Clubman Motorcycle Championships.

Mark (44), of Hamilton Square, Bo’ness, has been riding for years having been given his first bike at the age of eight.

Mark blames his father Jock McComisky (72), who still rides today in the pre-65 class and regularly takes part in the Scottish Six Days Trials throughout the Highlands, for his involvement in the sport.

The Clubman Championship event takes place at locations throughout Scotland and is run over six rounds with the rider winning the highest number of points over the heats taking top title.

Mark said: “I had taken a wee break from the sport due to the usual interruptions in life, like getting married and having a family taking precedence.

“It was only after my uncle died and left me a bit of money that I could return to the sport.

“I was placed ninth in the 2012 event so to move up to top ranking in 2013 was an amazing achievement.”
