The World Trials Canada National Trials Championship (West) returns to Revelstoke on the September long weekend, and the Revy Riders Dirtbike Club, have been chosen to host this prestigious event. You will see riders from Spain, Australia, and from all over Canada.

Trials is not a speed or race event, but a technical display of riding on natural (and sometimes man-made) obstacles such as huge rocks and boulders, near vertical cliff climbs, and navigating over logs and other obstacles that would make most people cringe.

The idea is to conquer these challenging features without “dabbing”, or putting your foot down. Riders carry a punch card, and are scored in the various marked sections around the course, with the lowest score in each class taking the win.

Come on out to witness the incredible riding at one of the many easily accessible spectator viewing locations off of the Sledhalla (Frisby Ridge) Forest Service Road. This is out by the Revy Riders MX track, at the end of the paved Westside Rd. Drive up a couple kilometres and look for the action.

It all starts at 10 a.m. Saturday and the action continues on Sunday. Programs will be available on site.

The Taco Club truck will be there Saturday,  the Village Idiot on Sunday.

We are still looking for a few volunteers to help out which will put you real close to the action. Lunch will be provided for all those that help. Please see the Revy Riders Facebook page or call or text 250-814-7044 if interested.

Hope to see you all at this truly spectacular event!
