Pere sits down and recalls the story of the development of the first Montesita and the day Ot amazed them and inspired him into kick starting Trialsin. The name Trialsin comes from the Spanish words Trial without engine. Pere doesn't claim to have started trials on a bike but it was he who developed the bikes continually for years and just as importantly developed the sport and got in recognised by the necessary federations.
Since the old photos were taken the pool has been installed, the old concrete slabs pulled up and new terracotta tiles put in their place.
These photos show the raised stepped area around the front door. To the left of the house is the entrance to the breakfast room. This was added onto the house in recent years. I know this because I saw a photo of Ot carrying a water bottle running around the house. Maria said that he would run around the house for hours and hours keeping fit.
As you walk into the entrance hall the door to the right leads to the office where on both opposite walls are just some of Pere's trophies. He has plenty more as well but they are in his brother in law's museum, which I will visit later. So just wait to see that. It was jaw dropping - WOW !!.
Ot being the fittest and youngest was duly elected to balance on the chairs and try and find Pere's first trophy ever.
Pere and Ot then worked out between them both that this first trophy must be at the museum. So instead they pulled out a couple that caught my eye.
Standing in the Pi's office reminded me of a few earlier photos I had seen of years long past.
