Race a trial of courage
THE X Trial Australian Championship will return to Baseball Park in Thornlie on April 8 and 9.
X Trial is a unique motorcycle sport where riders negotiate a man-made obstacle course comprising anything from earth-moving tyres to skip bins and cable drums.
X Trial invites only the top six athletes in the country, along with two wildcard entries.
Competitors will be coming from Queensland, NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.
“The riders will have to take on 2-3 metre vertical walls, jump four-metre gaps with no run-up and take off from platforms shorter than their bike length,” event director Neil Price said.
