2018 Australian Trials Championship to Jump into Action This Weekend


This weekend the best trials riders from around Australia will invade Sedgwick, located in northern Victoria, 16km out Bendigo, for the 2018 "Delecca's" Australian Trial Championship.

All up, 110 riders, which cover classes from Veterans, Twin Shocks, Classic, Juniors, Juniors 13-16 boys, Open Women and Solo, will tackle sixty sections, which has been laid out and designed by Trials Club of Victoria.

So just how demanding will these sections be this weekend? To break it down, the sections will be set in vary of levels in every sections, as some riders may find some of the sections quite easy, and some may find them difficult.

Trials is obviously a complete polar opposite discipline, say to road racing where every rider races on the same circuit and your ability is graded on your time it takes to get around the track.

With trials, the grading is different as it‰Ûªs the size of the obstacle you ride. For example, a veteran‰Ûªs type rider would normally ride something with a vertical face of about a meter high, while an open solo rider would ride an obstacle with a vertical face of about a three meters high.

Trials Club of Victoria president Philip Whittle has expressed that this weekend race fans will be able to witness up close action to the event, as spectators will be able to stand right on the boundary tape and watch the action unfold.

‰ÛÏRace fans will be blown away with the size of the obstacles that the expert riders will be riding and the size of the obstacles some of the juniors will be riding as well,‰Û
The dark horse this weekend could be Connor Hogan, who has been riding in Europe all year in the Trials2 division of the FIM Trial World Championship, and recently just came back from riding in the Trial des Nations (TdN) and just won the Victorian Trials Championship.

‰ÛÏConnor‰Ûªs riding has improved over the last few years,‰Û
