Round 2 of the Saskatchewan Provincial Trials series was held June 6th, with riders from from 3 provinces attending, spanning a distance of 1100 km's between Winnipeg, MB and Medicine Hat, AB. All riders were treated to sunshine and 23 degrees, and the unrelenting sun in the old quarry just 1 km East of Moose Jaw. Interestingly the Trials site was located only feet from the Trans Canada HWY, which invited a constant stream of spectators stopping in the pit and along the highway to take in our sport, many for the first time.

The expert class was won by Derek Thomas, followed by David McLuckie on his trick Montesa. Intermediate, the largest class, was a nail-biter between Ryan and Rob Gadd. The new Youth class was once again won by the very talented young Olivia Neuhofer, who never dabbed a foot all day.
