2018 WA Trial Championships: September 9
The 2018 WA Trial Championships was an outstanding success and held at a fantastic property off Jarrahdale Road with grateful thanks to WA Limestone for allowing the use of their property – thanks Steve Della Bona. This iconic property (previously known in the Trials fraternity as Immediate Metals) was the scene of many years of trials and development of WA trials riders and it was, for many, a trip down memory lane. However, riders could not let their thoughts wander as the sections set for the Championships needed full concentration and control, presenting a variety of rocks, mud, streams, banks, water and logs.
Congratulations are extended to the WA State Champion – Neil Price for his 13th State Championship, fighting off Craig, Grant and Jake in the premier grade (A-Grade). See all of the results from this link.
Linda Russell from MWA has also posted up a fantastic overview of the event – check her article from this link.
