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.

Update on Guest Class:

Hey Everybody,

Just wanted to update you all on the Guest Class.

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!

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!
