ShieldsBerg FunTrial 3td of August
Moto Trial NI are delighted to announce their next event on Sunday the 3td of August! We are calling it the ‘ShieldsBerg Fun Trial’ really just as a bit of craic, the ‘Shields’ part is the name of the land owner. Steven also played a big part in making the ‘Lego Live’ event possible back in Easter. This will be a completely new venue to trials and it’s situated directly across the road from The Leadmines/Heritage center car-park, in through the main gates at ‘Landscape Supplies NI’ @ 274 Bangor Road Newtownards, Co Down BT23 7PH.
This trial is not part of the ‘Winter Series’ but riders can expect the same kind of sections and course that they have enjoyed at our events, in fact this trial will be marked a little easier to see if we can coax some more beginners or riders that have not been out for a while to have a go! The ‘in-between’ course will be very easy consisting of a lane and open gravel area, with a short few meters diversion to the 10 sections of 4 lap course. We will have a mixture of forested sections and for this event a few ‘arena trial/man made’ sections for everyone to have a go on! Also if you want to ride in ‘Fancy Dress’ instead of your usual riding gear then go for it!
We are also presenting awards after the trial for the Winter Series. The 1st three in each grade get a trophy, 3rd – 15th receive an award and everyone else who rode gets ‘finishers’ medals. The club are also providing as part of the £20 adult & £10 youth entry a BBQ with burgers & sausages as a way of saying a very big thank you to all riders and observers who made our events possible!
Moto Trial NI are keen to see new youth riders having a go at trials and with extra help we are adding a youth C, D & E course, the ‘E’ course is an easy beginner sections for boys and girls to bring their electric or petrol bikes along, so if your child has a wee trials bike and wants a fun day out having a go at trials this event will be a great place to start!
Even if you don’t have a electric trials bike but you child might want a go then we will have our little bike at the venue, with crash hat, boots and padding for them to ‘Try Trials’
The event starts at 11am with awards and BBQ straight after the finish. We will have a toilet on site but no hot food van this time. The club would like to thank The Shields family for very kindly letting us all use their land and we look forward to seeing you all on the day!
