On 25, 26 and 27 June 2010, the Nevis Range, Fort William, will stage the UK leg of the 2010 SPEA FIM Trial World Championship, the thirty-fifth edition of the biggest, the most important and the best motorcycle trial competition series on the international calendar. It is the first time since 1992 that Scotland has hosted a stage of the World Championship series; that will see seven other Grand Prix events being staged in Spain, Portugal, Japan, France, San Marino, Italy and the Czech Republic in 2010.
Motorcycle trials is unique in the World of motorsport. It is the only discipline where the winner is decided on skill alone. It is is a test of riding skill and balance over observed sections. When comptetitors ride the incredibly tough sections (obstacles) their feet must remain on the footrests of the motorcycle. They must negotiate steep gullies, slippery rock steps, rocky streams or boulder-streewn gorges. Sections vary in length and severity, and riders are penalized if they put their feet down to help them ride the section, and more so if they fail to negotiate the section in its entirety. The competition is very exciting amongst the riders and the opportunities for some incredible photography (set against the backdrop of Ben Nevis and amazing Highland landscape) are huge.
As a major focus for both country and rider sixty of the World's best riders from fifteen countries around the globe will descend on the Scottish Highlands for two days of awesome and hotly contested competition for valuable points towards the 2010 World Pro (male only at Fort William), World Junior (male and female) and World Youth (male and female) titles.
Up to 8,000 spectators are expected to attend the biggest and most spectacular display of trials riding ever seen on British soil. The main competition days will be Saturday and Sunday with Friday's timetable offering a mixture of unique and exclusive activities including autograph and meet and greet sessions with the world's top riders, official practice and 'Kickstart – The Return'. Friday will also be a great day to plan the best viewing points ready for the exciting competition over the weekend.
