HOW THE SECTIONS WORK

We get riders to ride in pairs or groups for safety reasons. We have two types of trials either self observed or observed. After the riders meeting the general rule is go to the section on the last number or your rider number for example rider 32 would start at number 2. This will ensure an even spread through out all sections. After arriving at the section riders will get off their bike and walk the section looking for markers and lines to ride. After the rider has rode the section they will move onto the next section until the whole lap has been completed. After the first lap has been completed you continue the process until you have finished all of your allocated laps. 

ONLINE ENTRY

All event entry is done through this web site on the ONLINE ENTRY PAGE. Entry will advertised when event entry is open. Online entry closes on the Thursday night on the week of the trial. Online entry maximises the officials time and makes it easy for our volunteers. 

 

Please not you can enter on the day at the trial but your score may not be included in this trial results.  

SELF SCRUITNEERING

Pathfinders events use either self scruitneering or scruitneering using officials. When signing on you will be given a form to complete. You tick off the field to say you have acknowledge you have checked the required check. Its ideal to check your bike before the event either at home or at the event when you arrive. Any issues will need to be fixed before you ride. All requirements are in the Manual Of Motorsport. At any time your bike can be checked by the scruitneer official.
