Outlaw Dave Rhodes selected for the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame

Dave then and now Dave then and now

Dave Rhodes It's good news for the world of trials when one of our own is selected for induction into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame.

Dave Rhodes will be inducted this year, and it's a very well-deserved honour for Outlaw Dave.

Dave has a wonderful history in the word of motorcycling, starting with his participation in trials in hs native Wales back in the early 1950's. When Dave moved to Canada in 1965, he continued with his interest in trials, and motorcycles in general. He was team manager for the Canadian team and for Yamaha at the ISDE in 1983, and spent some very happy years working with Yamaha when the company was manufacturing some of the leading off-road machinery. In 1975, Dave organized the FIM World Round in Canada (a first for this country), which was held near Calgary. For more than thirty years, now, Dave has managed his own successful business, Outlaw Trialsport, in Vernon, BC.

Dave has a flair for organization, which can be seen by the popularity of our sport in the interior of British Columbia, where he makes his home, and by the amazing success of Dave's Outlaw series, covering both Alberta and BC.

Dave was one of the original supporters of the trials arm of World Enduro Canada, which has since become World Trials Canada. He continues to do voluntary work for the organization, and has been instrumental in the success of the WTC's National Championship series, which is now in its tenth year, with continuing success.

It's a timely recognition for Dave, after his sixty-five years of dedication to this great sport.
