It’s a pleasure to announce my attendance at the upcoming Wagner Cup Trial in TN.
Thank you so much for inviting me to come and organizing accommodations. It is heart-warming to know that you all still honor my results, although we have not seen each other for such a long time or never had the chance to meet. I value those Trials moments we have shared and I look forward to a memorable weekend together.
We just wanted to give you a heads up about one of our Sponsor/Vendors at the World Competition. Not only will these guys have a booth at the event, but they are also donating 100 sample tins for the Rider Gift Bags!

The Wagner Cup has been part of all world championship motorcycle trials events held in North America since 1975. The winner is determined by the lowest score over the combined two days of competition.
The Wagner Cup, which features four bighorn sheep, is kept permanently at the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) headquarters in Ohio. The name of every North American world-round winner since 1975 is engraved on the cup.

World Trials In America

If you would like to see the best trials riders in the world up close and personal then your best opportunity will be May 25-26, 2013 at the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, Tennessee, as the amazing spectacle of World Observed Trials returns to the United States with a two-day stop of the FIM World Trials Championship.
The Trials Training Center is the perfect venue for viewing a trials event because of its excellent amenities and because of the unbelievable natural terrain that will test the best trials riders in the world.
Among the athletes expected to be vying for honors at the U.S. round will be Six-Time World Champion Toni Bou, along with fellow Spaniard and former world champ Adam Raga, five-time U.S. Champ Patrick Smage, 2010 U.S. Champ Cody Webb, plus a bevy of top riders from all over the world.
New for 2013 is a 5th class called “Guest”. The Guest Class will allow for a greater number of American riders to participate in the Trial World Championship. This 5th class requires the rider to be on a 125cc bike (or larger, per request) and ride the green line. This will allow riders who are not looking for World Championship points to compete with their international peers.
So now if you would like to participate in the “Guest Class” You can send the FIM a request to ride larger than a 125 CC bike. Amazing!
In an effort to encourage more American Riders this year, the FIM has now added a “Guest Class” to this year’s World Trial Championship!
This will allow for a greater number of American Riders to participate in the World Trial Championship. This 5th Class requires the rider to be over age 16, and compete on a 125 cc Bike. The Guest Class will ride the Green line. This will allow riders who are not looking for World Championship Points to compete in a World Championship event with their international peers.
To Register you will need the following:
–> Entry Form with the AMA Stamp
–> Start Permission delivered by the AMA
–> Paddock Entry Form
–> Entry Fee – Payable by Credit Card, PayPal or Check(make payable to TTC).
This will give the “Guest Class” Competitors an opportunity to compete with some of the most outstanding Trials Riders in the World, and we hope you take them up on it! We encourage you to make the most of this and show the world what American Riders can do!
We have scheduled another Trial World Championship Work Day. We will be getting together on March 16th for another World Competition Work Day! We will start at 9am central time, but just come out when you can. We will leave a note on the door to let you know where we are.
Then stay over and ride the Final round of the Winter Series!
This is the last round of this seasons CTC Winter Series. Stay and have a day of fun competition on Sunday March 17th. The competition will start at 10am central time with registration beginning at 9am Central time. The cost is only $20 per rider, and there is even an off road class!
So come on out and join us for two days of fun and friends in the woods, we know you’ll have just as much fun as we do!
We have received the new instructional video demonstrating the No-Stop techniques used for the 2013 World Trial Competition. This video shows how the new “no – stop” riding will be done, the rules for observing appear to be very straightforward. It will be interesting to see how this riding style works out, as this appears to be the trend for future competition.
We encourage you all to watch this video, and become familiar with the scoring. We still have opportunities for observers and other volunteers this year, so please contact Gary Hoover at email@example.com to get in the action!
Workers who work at least one day of competition will receive their weekend pass, two nights of tent camping, and lunch on the day they work. We have also gotten some great donations for a WORKER RAFFLE!! We look forward to this event and all of your participation.
This will be a great event and we can’t wait to see you all here!
