FIM Trial World Championship
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.
