TRI­ALGP • TRIAL2 • TRIAL125 With Spain be­ing the cur­rent dom­i­nant force in the sport of tri­als, the mountains in the heart­land north of Barcelona will pro­vide the per­fect set­ting to get the new era of Tri­alGP un­der­way. The Noas­sar train­ing area just out­side the town of Cam­prodon is widely recog­nised as one of the best venues in Europe and is fre­quented by many of the world’s lead­ing rid­ers, such is the va­ri­ety and scope of the ter­rain that is hid­den on the vast, cov­ered hill­sides. Break­ing from the more ex­pected Span­ish-style sec­tions, the haz­ards will make the most of its nat­u­ral land­scape with steep bank­ings and rounded boul­ders cre­at­ing an al­most Bri­tish feel to the event. Tri­alGP Spain will have the honour of be­ing the first to wit­ness the new Satur­day qual­i­fi­ca­tion process when each and ev­ery rider will have to fight within their class for their Sun­day start po­si­tion. Con­tested over a sin­gle timed sec­tion on Satur­day af­ter­noon this new for­mat is poised to cause some early drama and guar­an­teed to serve some great ac­tion right from the off. With easy ac­cess from ei­ther Barcelona or Girona what bet­ter ex­cuse for a long week­end in the spring sun­shine?
