Trials the big winner

Posted:

Moto Trials in Australia is set to be the big winner from the success of Australia's first International Super Trial. The event which featured ten international riders, including the Junior World Champion, the European Champion, four National Champions, the world's number 10 rider and a former world number three, and Australia and New Zealand's best ten riders has been declared an outstanding success by the event organizers. "We have had extremely positive feed back from the spectators and the riders and the event has gone off without a hitch. This is by far the biggest crowd ever to attend a motorcycle trial and everybody got more than their money's worth of entertainment and excitement." declared event co-ordinator Gary Grealy. Large appreciative crowds, spectacular sections in a very short loop, superbly skilful riding, fine weather and a timing system that assured constant action all contributed to the success of the event. The event used a world first format that dictated the order in which riders rode a section and only allowed them 90 seconds to complete a section. The next rider then had to start the section within 15 seconds. Winner of the International A class and European Champion Shaun Morris from Preston, England praised the event and its organization. "It took me half a lap to get used to the timing system but after that it worked brilliantly. The spectators knew who would be riding next, when they would be riding and how they had been performing. It really added to spectator appeal." Morris stated. Competitors were grouped into three separate classes, International A, International B and Australasian. Three lines were set in each section appropriate to the abilities of each class. Second placed International A rider and world number ten Jordi Pascuet from Spain commented on the sections after the event, "The sections were very good. The sections I ride are maybe European Championship standard, but you could easily set World Championship sections here - no problem." The event featured two man made and eight natural terrain sections in a very picturesque natural amphitheatre. The two man made sections were on a flat area and surrounded by catering and trade displays whilst the eight natural sections were over huge granite boulders and a rocky creek bed. The sections were all very close together and riders in up to four sections could all be watched from the one location at the same time. Spectator at the event Terry Drew form Mill Park expressed his enjoyment of the event, "I am a bit of a motor sport enthusiast and get along to the MotoGP, Super Cross, Formula 1 and the touring cars as often as I possibly can and this is as good an event as I have been to all year. The organization has been exemplary and the skill of the riders is unbelievable. I'll certainly come back next year if it is on." Event organizers were unsure of the future after the event. "This has been a great success and a landmark event for trials but we haven't decided if we will do it again next year." stated Grealy. "The event has created a lot of momentum and we might even take it to the next level - a World Championship event." he added.
