What is AMA Trials?

Postby Tawmass » Tue Jan 07, 2014 11:01 am

A nice, short video on what trials is.

American Motorcyclist Association wrote:Trials does not put a premium on speed. Instead, the winner of a trials event is simply the most skilled, graceful and (sometimes) luckiest rider on a particular course.

Trials, also called MotoTrials, competitors must negotiate individual sections of extremely difficult terrain without putting their feet down. Penalty points are assessed for mistakes, and the rider with the lowest overall score at the end of the day wins.

Some sections are so difficult, it's hard to imagine a mountain goat traversing them, much less a rider on two wheels. The top rung of the sport in the United States is the AMA/NATC Trials National Championship Series.

In this introductory video, you can learn about the basics of one of the most accessible and fun motorsports.

You don't stop riding because you grow old, you grow old because you stop riding.
