Welcome to the slowest racing event at VMD! Of course, getting from Point A to Point B in the shortest possible time is not the goal of observed trials. In trials, speed doesn’t matter at all. Observed trials is a test of technique, balance, and the ability to navigate over or around obstacles without stalling, crashing, or touching a foot to the ground — and it’s made even more challenging when it’s on vintage trials bikes! Using natural-terrain obstacles in the same wooded area that hosts the hare scrambles — including log crossings, rock gardens, steep climbs, and creek crossings — VMD has trials routes available to challenge riders of all skill levels.
