Postponed from an earlier date due to snow, the Les Blow Trial was held in glorious sunshine but cool weather at the Club's property on Happy Valley Road. Thirty-six riders plus four small-wheel riders signed up to "enjoy the day." Ten sections with varying degrees of difficulty were laid out for the eight classes of riders from Beginner to Expert.

Thomas Cordner took first place among the experts at the trial.

Trials Demo's at the Nova Scotia Bike Show in Halifax

The Maritime Trials Riders put on three days of indoor trials demo's at the Halifax Motorcycle Show last weekend (March 1,2 & 3). On Sunday Kevin, Owen, Kelvin, Shereef and Michael rode for the 12:00 show, with Patrick and Brett joining in the fun for the 4:00 PM show.

A big thanks to Beta Canada for bringing out two demo bikes; there seems to be plenty of people "thinking about getting a bike", we hope to see some pull the trigger and see some new faces this season.

CPTA Beta Trial at Ioco, BC on Feb 10, 2019

Story from Don Doerksen
Picture by Jeff Green

The Beta Trial took place on February 10, 2019 at Ioco, BC. Twenty-five people were hardy enough (or sufficiently desperate) to ride in the sub-zero temperatures. The ground that is usually wet was frozen, so it was like riding on ice in a lot of places. The saving grace was that the rocks still had grip. But that grip disappeared on the thirrd loop, when it started to snow and scores skyrocketed. It was time to get back to the pits and get into the pulled pork and beef that Steve Kemp had over the charcoals.

Alex Walton won the Expert class handily, and Jason Miller topped the Advanced contingent in a tighter contest. Ted McDowall took Senior 45, while Brent Anctil was the first winner in the new Senior Intermediate class. Steve Kemp was the only Junior and he finished with a pretty low score.

Bytown Motorcycle Association - Sportspersons Fun Trial
11:00 AM on May 12, 2019 at Woody's Cycles in Perth, ON

The purpose of this WTC-sanctioned event is to allow trials riders to have a fun "loosen-up" at the beginning of the season. It's also meant to give new riders a look, and to experience a proper trials course and rules. This is not a competition, but score cards will be available for those who want to keep an eye on their own skill level.

There will be a minimum of eight sections connected by marked trails. Each section will have three skill levels marked with color coding. There will be a riders meeting to explain the rules, this is normal procedure.

Small dirt bikes under 250cc will be permitted and encouraged at the discretion of the clerk of the course. Noise level must be observed, also at the discretion of the clerk of the course.

A FUN day for all is intended. Bring hydration and food there is none available at the location. Details on the BMA website at

Date announced for the WTC National Championship (West) and the Outlaw Trial

Dave Rhodes has announced the date of the WTC National Championship (West), along with the ever-popular Outlaw Trial.

Both events will take place on the long weekend in May at Scotch Creek, BC. This will, hopefully, avoid the forest-fire season in the BC Interior. That is that usual weekend for the Outlaw event, unchanged for the past thirty years.

The WTC National event will probably take place on the Saturday, with the ever-popular Outlaw trial on the Sunday, and the possibllity of a vintage trial on the Monday.

The dates for the entire Outlaw Series in 2019 are as follows:
  1  Apr 28   Ioco, BC
  2  May 19  Scotch Creek, BC
  3  August   Rocky Mountain House, AB
  4  Sept 1   Ymir, BC

2018: Trials Recognized as Outlaw Dave inducted into Hall of Fame

2018 has been an interesting year for trials, with increasing interest in the sport in the Maritimes, and greater numbers in Ontario with the popularity of the Southwestern Ontario Classic Trials Group, and with the Sleeping Giant group in Northern Ontario.

There have been challenges in some parts of the country, but a good shot in the arm has been the recognition of long-time "Mr Trials" - Outlaw Dave Rhodes. The photo shows Dave at the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies chatting to Steve Crevier. I was lucky enough to see Steve Crevier racing when he was mounted aboard the fabulous Honda RC51 V-twin racing machine - it was a wonderful combination of man and machine.
