With the TrialGP Great Britain – which will take place at Addingham Moorside, Silsden, Yorkshire – now rapidly approaching, on the weekend September 1/2, now is the time to grab your tickets online.
And that not only guarantees that you will be there – tickets are limited – but you will save a few quid as well. Pre-booked tickets are £30 for the full weekend or £20 for Sunday only.
The British round is the seventh and penultimate of the eight round 2018 series and will feature TrialGP and Trial2.
This is of course your only chance to see 11-times World Champion Toni Bou, on the mighty factory Repsol Honda, in outdoor trials action in this country as he guns for a virtually unbelievable 12th consecutive crown.
James Dabill (Beta) and Jack Price (Gas Gas) will both be looking to the crowd for inspiration as they get the chance to perform on the World stage not only in their own country but in their own county!
It will be an important event for Cornish teenager Toby Martyn as the Montesa-mounted teenager is locked in battle with similarly-mounted veteran Italian Matteo Grattarola, the young Brit hoping to extend his slim, hard-won two point lead for the 2018 Trial2 crown.
And British interest doesn’t end with Toby as east Yorks Gas Gas mounted brothers Dan and Jack Peace currently sit in fourth and fifth places and both lads are well capable of topping the class on the day.
There is no Trial125 category this time, that class has to wait for the final round in Italy in order to determine the new Champion. Great Britain WILL be hosting the final round of the Women’s TrialGP and Trial2 series however.
And after two days’ action in the opening round in Japan and one day in France only a disaster will prevent Britain’s Emma Bristow from claiming her fifth consecutive World crown – in front of her home crowd.
And it really ought to be a special occasion for the 27-year-old Sherco factory ace, from Boston, Lincs, and she will be looking to tie-up the 2018 title with a full house of wins after victory in each day’s competition to date.
Saturday will of course be dedicated to the exciting Qualifying sessions, held over a single section against the clock.
And everyone now gets TWO runs as they fight for starting order, fastest going last in Sunday’s trial. As we have said, the big weekend is rapidly approaching so get those tickets – and we’ll bring you all the news as the clock counts down…
