The Florida Trials Association invites you to come
out and experience the sport of Moto Trials (Observed Trials). Trials is a unique motorcycle sport in that you get to spend
all day on the pegs and you can ride at your own pace providing you complete the course in the given time. You also can pick
the level of difficulty, or line, that you want to compete at for that event from novice, intermediate, sportsman, advanced,
or expert. Trials is one of the safest and least expensive forms of motorcycle
competition. Because its mainly balance and control it sharpens all aspects of riding skills, and is excellent cross training
for other motorcycle sports. The sport of moto trials is huge in Europe and many top riders around the world in road race,
off road, and motocross have extensive trials backgrounds.
Bike maintenance, wear, and fuel consumption are minimal due to the low engine rpm’s used in normal
competition compared to other sports. Most modern trials bikes weigh in at around 150 pounds and are fairly quiet so practicing
in the yard is not uncommon. Many riders practice balancing and hopping the motorcycle without even starting the motor.
So come out and ride, each year we have 8 championship points events, 2 fun events with no championship
points, and our annual 2day Fun In The Sun event in March. Events are held at Hardrock Motorcycle Park in Ocala and the Croom
riding area near Brooksville. The championship season will count 5 of the best 8 events and will have fantastic year end awards.
Come on out and have a good time, we’ll see you in the sections.
We would love to have your pictures and videos of local trials competitions. Please
contact Cathy at email@example.com
for submission format. THANKS!
