is Motorcycle Trials?
In short, it is maximum off-road fun at an affordable cost. The
objective is to ride over rough terrain without putting your foot
and or feet on the ground and in so doing you lose penalty marks.
The winner of a trial is the person who loses the least number
of marks, which is known in trials lingo as going “clean”.
A typical trials course usually consists of ten sections, lapped
four times with each competitor being allocated four hours to
complete the course. The approximate length of a single lap is
Dave Rodgers and Andy Perry, each having a wealth of experience
in many differing fields, manage the company. Dave still competes
regularly and is a former expert rider who now specialises in
the organisation and promotion of International events. Andy is
a current expert rider with four Irish titles to his name. He
is a true entertainer who can mix top results with the best display

competes at International events and carry this working relationship
into the training and coaching of novice and expert riders.

anyone become a TRIALSTAR?
Of course it is possible, but the end product is not necessarily
the best part, climbing the mountain is more satisfying than someone
lifting you onto the summit by helicopter. The good news is we
can all sit or rather stand up on a trials bike and try climbing
that mountain, a select few may do both, but either way everyone
has a chance of becoming TRIALSTAR.
