SHOW­TIME Su­per­trial Time

Trial Magazine - - CONTENTS - WORDS AND PIC­TURES: TRI­ALS ME­DIA

The three-round ‘Su­per­trial’ con­cept has cer­tainly added some in­ter­est to the Bri­tish tri­als scene dur­ing the sum­mer months as three very ex­pe­ri­enced clubs gave the riders the op­por­tu­nity to demon­strate that some of them are very much a ‘Class Act’. Us­ing a mix­ture of man-made and nat­u­ral haz­ards, and re­vert­ing to time lim­its for the riders in the haz­ards with a dif­fer­ent style of ob­serv­ing, the ac­tion is cer­tainly quick-fire and spec­tac­u­lar. Dan Peace was crowned the new 2017 ‘Su­per­trial’ Cham­pion as the win­ner of the last two rounds, as James Da­bill missed the first en­counter at Scar­bor­ough. Is it now time to in­clude this series as an add-on to the stand alone Bri­tish Tri­als Cham­pi­onship? Many peo­ple think so, based on its at­trac­tion, to bring ad­di­tional spon­sor­ship and spec­ta­tors to the sport.
