CPTA March Trial, Ioco, BC
March 15, 2015

From Don Doerksen

The CPTA March trial started out cloudy but dry, and ended up with steady light rain by the end of the day. In spite of the weather, the sections (which were mostly under the trees) actually seemed to get easier as the day went on. Or maybe the competitors just figured out how to ride them. The beginner course attracted 7 entrants and, from the scores, seemed just the right difficulty. The Juniors and Intermediates appear to have had a bit more of a trial in both senses of the word, with some high scores and weary bodies at the end of the day. Bill Sparks held off the young guns again for the Expert win and Carl Muller had the best ride of the day on the Advanced classes.

A fun-filled day was had at the Victoria Motorcycle Club's property as 36 riders enjoyed the spring-like conditions. Warm sunny weather made for ideal conditions for this annual event named after Reg, who was considered one of the "fathers" of the Club.

Thirteen year old Nik Ferguson got his first win in the Intermediate class today, while Thomas Cordner took the win in the Expert class, ahead of Andrew Watson and Jeremy McChesney.

It was nice to see five small wheel beginners showing some nice skills and lots of smiles!

Great turn-out for CPTA February trial
Alex Walton winner in expert class on Feb 15th

Report from Don Doerksen

An amazing 63 riders turned out for the CPTA's February trial at Ioco, BC. There were 20 Juniors signed up, plus a contingent of beginners, which bodes well for the future of the sport. It was slow going in the woods with so many riders -- many of them were out for the first time. It was a beautiful sunny day, though, and a great day to ride.

Results of VMC's Les Blow Trial on February 8th

Thirty eight competitors enjoyed a good challenge on the slippery slopes of the Victoria Motorcycle Club's property during the Les Blow Trial held on Sunday Feb. 8th. The weather co-operated on the day of the event, but there had been a few rainy days prior to the trial, so some of the sections were very challenging.

Thomas Cordner was the winner in the expert class, with a loss of just 38 points over the three laps of the trial.

Welcome to our newest advertiser

You've probably noticed that we have a new advertiser on the TrialsCanada website. Shuswap Xtreme Recreation of Salmon Arm, BC has joined us, and we welcome them to the TrialsCanada family.

With our 12th birthday coming soon (on February 5th), we find that businesses continue to place their trust in TrialsCanada. The reason is simple -- they are guaranteed such widespread distribution of their messages with us.

Take a look at the statistics from last month alone (December 2014) -- not a time of year you'd usually associate with a lot of interest in trials. But here are some facts for December:

  • 8,400 visits from 3,500 different visitors
  • 44,200 page-views in one month
  • 181 PDF files of trials results downloaded
  • 3,500 visits to our classified ads
  • 1,200 visits from Google, Yahoo and Bing searches.
It's taken us many years to build this level of support, but we're proud of the standing that TrialsCanada has achieved in the website world.
