Moto Trials - The Skilful Alternative
Unlike most other forms of motorcycle sport, MotoTrials is not racing. It is simply you and your bike pitted against the terrain.
Moto Trials is a sport of balance, skill and concentration. One at a time, competitors will ride over an obstacle course of boulders, streams, hill climbs, logs, drop offs, and nearly anything else they can find.
Moto Trials is the world's most popular participatory motorcycle sport. In Australia about one thousand riders compete, - in Europe hundreds of thousands compete regularly. Moto Trials riders compete in ALL weather conditions.
There are classes for everyone. From Juniors of 16 years of age - down to barely walking, through to Veterans from 40 to 70+. There are classes to cover all rider levels, with Expert, A, B, C, and Clubman/Novice levels. There are also classes for Masters (35+). Other classes include Sidecar, Post-Classic and Classic. Riders in the top classes attempt seemingly impossible obstacles, and in the process perform some of the most amazing skilled and trick riding - including air turns, bunny hops and bouncing the front and rear wheels during turns.
