The provisional calendar for the 2024 Hertz FIM Trial World Championship has been officially unveiled, promising fans a thrilling seven-round series that will span 12 days of intense points-scoring competition, all in celebration of the championship’s historic fiftieth anniversary.
Following the success of this season’s events in France, Japan, Andorra, Italy, and Spain, the 2024 championship, which also commemorates 25 years of the FIM Women’s Trial World Championship, will return to these countries. Additionally, it will revisit Germany and Belgium, two nations absent from the calendar since 2022.
The championship kicks off on April 13-14 in Maisse, France, featuring one day of competition. The venue last hosted a TrialGP event in 2008 when Toni Bou, the reigning TrialGP champion representing Montesa, secured a runner-up position on his way to his second world title.
Next on the itinerary is the Mobility Resort Motegi in Japan, where competitors will converge on May 17-19 for the TrialGP of Japan. This event made a triumphant return to the calendar this year for the first time since 2019.
Continuing the action, the championship heads to the perennially popular Sant Julià de Lòria in Andorra from June 7-9.
The TrialGP of Italy follows suit, taking place on June 14-16 at Valsassina, nestled in an Alpine valley. This location is a newcomer to the championship. Subsequently, the series ventures northward to Neunkirchen, Germany, for the round scheduled for July 5-7.
Just before the traditional summer hiatus, the championship converges at Comblain-au-Pont in Belgium on July 13-14, offering another day of intense points-scoring competition.
The grand finale of the series unfolds from September 13-15 in Ripoll, situated in north-east Spain. This venue is a fresh addition to the championship’s landscape. Additionally, the FIM Trial Vintage Trophy and FIM Trial Vintage Motorcycle Trophy will be contested on the preceding Friday and Saturday.
The season will culminate with the FIM Trial des Nations, taking place on September 21-22 at Pobladura de las Regueras in Spain. This location last hosted a round of the Hertz FIM Trial World Championship in 2021.
In terms of participation, TrialGP and Trial2 riders will compete across all seven rounds, while TrialGP Women competitors will miss only the rounds in Andorra and Italy. Trial3 participants will sit out the Japan and Spain rounds, and the Trial2 Women title will be determined in Germany, Belgium, and Spain.
