    INTRODUCTION Motor-cycle scrambling is becoming a popular sport in a most unlikely country - Bahrain.

    SYNOPSIS: A number of last season's young local stars are now attending universities and technical colleges in Europe and America, but there are still enough young Bahrainis coming forward to take their place for the Bahrain 'Sandblasters Club' to open a new scrambling track on the outskirts of the capital Manama.

    Moto??? or scrambling was invented in southern England 50 years ago, but it did not become popular until a French businessman named Poitier commercialised the sport by staging meetings on the outs of Paris after the last World War. It began of the muddy green ??? country tracks of northern Europe - but desert sand dunes clearly provide as tough a course.

    This is the only motorcycle scrambling course in the Middle East.

    The two top riders competing in Bahrain this year are local engineer Hussain Jalabi -- in front wearing the yellow shirt -- and Dutchman Rudolph Broers, in white, who had built up a points advantage from previous races and was determined to overhaul Jalabi in this one as well.

    The two men were well clear of the rest of the field by the end - but it was Jalabi who got the better of this contest.

    But Jalabi win was not enough for him to overtake Broers in the points table. It was the Dutchman who received the first price from the American manager of Core Laboratories in Bahrain Mr. Bob Button.
