Busting onto the Six Day Team – 1974 ISDT Article

It would be easier to swim to Italy. This year’s method of selecting riders to represent the United States at the 1974 International Six Days Trial (September 9-14) in Italy was the most organized attempt yet by the AMA. There is room for only 30 riders on the various U.S. teams.

Six on the World Trophy Team
Four on the Vase A Team
Four on the Vase B Team
Three riders each on five Club and Manufacturers’s teams
One alternate who will ride as an individual if a replacement is not needed

Photo captions:

Carl Cranke is service manager of Penton West. He can change a throttle cable with his gloves on;

Billy Uhl’s ride in Italy will be his sixth ISDT. He and his father run a bike shop in Boise, Idaho.

Jack Penton is the youngest, and fastest, of the three Penton boys. He rode his first Six Day at 16.

The 175 Can-Am ridden by Billy Uhl was equal in performance to all the other bikes in the qualifier series, regardless of their size. Double Girling dampers are a Uhl experiment.

18-year-old Dan Young of Bowling Green, Ky., will be one of the youngest riders in Italy.

Jim Hollander rode the last 18 miles of Trask Mountain on the rear rim of his Rokon RT-340.

Ben Bower slumps in total frustration at Bad Rock after drowning his Husky 50′ from the end.

Tom Penton slithers through the Picayune slop. He will ride a 175 at his fifth ISDT in Italy.
