Event Dates: June 20, 2015 - June 20, 2015 Location: Tacoma, Washington
Spectators are welcome to watch this fun observed trials course where skilled novice, intermediate, and expert riders on vintage motorcycles compete on a very specific and challenging obstacle course at Marymount - testing both man AND machine. This safe and historically accurate racing environment will showcase these vintage machines. Observed trials are a very significant part of historic motorcycle competition. Cross-country riding is how motorcycling began, and as the motorcycles and roads improved, riders still challenged themselves with off-road competitions on ancient Roman roads and on “cow and wagon” trails in the USA. As this “gentleman’s sport” has developed, eventually the competition organized into reliability runs, enduros, “hare and hounds”, and closed course hare scrambles. This observed trials course at Marymount will feature observed sections open to spectators composed of some wide-open areas of challenging terrain and other sections. With period-accurate sections, machines will remain true to their original concept, and the techniques required to ride them will do the same, enhancing the entire vintage trials event for spectators and participants. The trials-riding (and watching!) experience undoubtedly results in good friends, good rides and good fun for all!
