Alberta Trials Riders Association AGM on Feb 18th

The ATRA held their Annual General Meeting at Leduc, AB on February 18th. Ben Pospisil kept his job as president, and a tentative schedule was put forward for 2017:

     May  7       Blackfoot trial at Calgary
     June 11      Rapid Creek trial at Falun
     Aug  26, 27  Alberta Outlaw trial at Rocky Mountain House
     Sept 10      Gwynne Mafia trial at Gwynne
                    

There will also be a fun event to kick off the season. More details will follow, but if it's been a while since you attended a trial, you are going to want to watch for this one. It looks like it will be in April but weather will play into that decision.

New WTC rules for electric bikes

The WTC has announced the rules concerning electric bikes. The ruling is that all machines must complete the entire course under their own power. For electric bikes, which lack sufficient range to complete a long course, organizers have three options. On very short courses, electric machines can compete without any special consideration. On longer courses, the organizers have the option to create a special, short loop for an electric machine class, or they may simply enforce the ruling that only machines with sufficient range can compete in the event.

If you're already making plans for September, 2017, then you may be interested in the news from Jacek Jablonski. Jacek is one of the folks behind Moto Trials Group Alberta (MTGA), an organization interested in promoting trials through training.

MTGA has been busy organizing a Ryan Young trials school, to take place at Elko, BC on September 2 and 3, 2017. There are currently just ten spots left open for the school, so you should reserve your place soon -- it should interest people from Alberta, BC and from the Spokane, Washington area. The organizers will be assisted by Jim Corkle, Keith Rutledge (of Washington's Inland Northwest Trials Association), Robert Trottier (MotoMotion Canada) and members of MTGA.
