Information about MotoTrials (Trial):
Unlike most other forms of motorcycle sport, MotoTrials is not racing. It is simply you and your bike pitted against the terrain. MotoTrials 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. MotoTrials is the world’s most popular participatory motorcycle sport. In Australia about one thousand riders compete, – in Europe hundreds of thousands compete regularly. MotoTrials 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 ability levels, from Expert through to Novice levels. Dependent on the event there are also classes for Masters (35+), Sidecar, Post-Classic (twin shock) and Classic. Whilst it is spectacular and sometimes appears dangerous at the top level, it is a very safe sport. Speed and other competitors are not factors likely to cause incidents, so the sport remains very safe. Very few injuries are sustained due to the low speeds and “one at a time” use of sections by competitors. 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.
WE WILL ALWAYS WELCOME VOLUNTEERS.
If you, your family or a friend would like to help out please get in touch with the club via email or Facebook. During the Winter Season the Club provides $50 to the official observers/scorers on each section, a small gesture to help us make the day a success.
Next Trial Event:
The 2021 calendar is almost ready. Keep checking back.
The Annual AJS night Trial was held on Saturday 31 October at the AJS Trials Park in Wattle Ave East, Neerabup. It commenced at 2.30pm with a six section trial in the Park. At the conclusion of the trial there was a sausage sizzle and then – when the sun went down the lights came on and the top three place-getters from grades T1 – T5 (plus a wildcard or two dependent on numbers) had a ride off, in the arena, for some great prizes.
To prepare the Park for this the Club asked for as many riders as possible to drop in for an hour or two on Saturday 24 October from 8.30am for a working bee. As always, many hands make light work so please drop in if you can spare some time no matter how little…………. Alas, only 3 turned up.
AJS Trial Park & COVID-19
On Wednesday 1 July the Trials Park reopened for keyholders under the normal practice permit. All riders and officials at the Trial Park need be aware that all attendees must follow the rules including: Social Distancing, sign on, and practice supervisor requirements.
