Trials

After the foundation of the club back in 1987, it was a natural progression after scrambles to run classic trials as well.  Since then our trials have been well supported and on average eight trials a year are held. Entries average 50/60 riders. This year we will have three routes including a new Gentlemans route so that all rider / machine abilities are catered for.
