The ATA Trials Supershow booth is #4412 located in Hall 4.

Happy New Year to you, your family, and your favourite tri-cycle.

Sorry but even with the email spam filter off, somehow we must have missed your generous offer of help. No point starting the 2019 Honey-Do-List (aka bike maintenance) without visiting the show first to pick up essential supplies.

Just email with your preferred Supershow time slot ..but hurry as a few spaces just became available!

The ATA Trials Supershow booth is #4412 located in Hall 4.

Rumour has it there are already trials riders lined up to meet a certain Mr. DaveB, ..along with DanielleC from Amercian Pickers.

So if you want to bypass the crowds and go straight to the front of the line, then just volunteer to talk about Trials for a few hours, and a free VIP pass will be held in your name.

Step up, hop, jap-zap or splatter ..or simply email with your name and preferred time slot ..but hurry space is limited!

ECTA Fall Trial Results - Oct 21st, 2018

Clive writes: My thanks go out to all of you who attended our fall trial, as well as to the set-up crew, checkers and other help: Jim and Shirley, Steve and Theresa, Joan and Tony, Don and Donna, Roy Pope, Stew Wallace, Phil, Zane and Zev. A special thanks to Elaine for all her many skills and overall management of this trial and ECTA’s functions.

We are planning on making some changes in 2019 if we are to continue hosting observed trials. Tentatively, the two day CMA sanctioned spring event would remain as is, and entry fee would include a lifetime ECTA membership, and then we would hold a closed to club event in the fall. Any rider not at the spring event would be expected to take out a lifetime membership in the fall if they wish to compete at the club event. Additionally, ECTA could invite another club to participate, for example Steel City, ATA or CVMG.

The fall trial would consist of ten sections, five ridden before a short break and five after. This allows the existing five member ECTA checking crew to observe before and after the break. Riders at the fall trial who choose not to take a break can play amongst themselves on the five sections already ridden before the break. Essentially, these would become ten sections of a permanent nature located in pairs around the loop and could be used as two practice areas for the spring event.

I welcome your thoughts on these ideas.
