FIM Trial World Cham­pi­onship

Trial Magazine - - TRIAL MAGAZINE - AR­TI­CLE: YOOMEE

For the sec­ond year in suc­ces­sion Sport7, the pro­moter for the FIM se­ries wel­comed the rid­ers to the open­ing round of this year’s Trial World Cham­pi­onship at Cam­prodon in Spain. This area of­fers a vast range of chal­leng­ing con­di­tions for the cham­pi­onship in­clud­ing rivers, rocks and steep climbs found in abun­dance in this moun­tain­ous re­gion, mak­ing for an ideal traditional tri­als venue. Lo­cated high in the Pyre­nees with breath-tak­ing views and just fif­teen kilo­me­tres from the bor­der with France, it sits at the height of 1,000 me­tres above sea level and is very much a tourist area. Sit­u­ated in the prov­ince of Girona it has a pop­u­la­tion of around 2,300 and dur­ing the win­ter months becomes home to many vis­i­tors who in­crease the pop­u­la­tion and en­joy the snow-based sports. Bring­ing tri­als in line with the other mo­tor­cy­cle world cham­pi­onship dis­ci­plines, Tri­alGP is the top cat­e­gory fea­tur­ing the most elite rid­ers. Con­tested this year over eight rounds based around the globe, six of the events will be held on a sin­gle day with the other two rounds in Ja­pan and Amer­ica hav­ing two days of pointss­cor­ing rounds each, mak­ing a to­tal of ten points-scor­ing cham­pi­onship events to make up the Tri­alGP se­ries.
