Vintage Trials in Taylorsville, Maryland
With the end of the 2020 season at hand, Mid-Atlantic Trials will be considering it's options for 2021. Since there are plenty of venues for Modern Trials bikes and the number of Vintage bikes competing locally has greatly diminished, I am thinking of hosting a couple of "Vintage Only" events at my place in Taylorsville, MD in 2021. Though in days past, we have relished the turn-out of close to and sometimes over one hundred riders, with the advent of Covid-19, now a turn-out of less than fifty begins to regain its appeal. Initially, my thoughts are to have Vintage classes for twinshock bikes with drum brakes and Post Vintage classes for early monoshock machines with air-cooled engines. If we are much under fifty riders, we may then invite Modern riders to participate in an Open or Exhibition class. These events will be "Gate Trials" so riders can decide for themselves, how much of a challenge they want. We're most likely looking at pre-registration to determine interest and whether or not to invite some Modern riders.
Note: These will be stand alone events, not a part of any series, and there will be no membership required. The focus will be on having fun with Vintage oriented sections that test mostly basic trials skills. There will be just a few "zero line" type challenges.
We plan to have our first Vintage Trial on either June 20 or 27 and our second event on September 12. Let me know if you have an interest in attending either of these. If there is enough interest we will have preregistration as the season gets closer.
I will be available this fall and winter for engine builds and general maintenance on Bultacos in particular and other Vintage era trials bikes in general. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 410-635-6722 , or text me at 443-821-6154for more information.
