The Weekend of the 16th & 17th of September 2017 sees the Best of the Best competing in the last 2 rounds of the National Motorcycle Trials here in Cape Town.

Entrance is free for spectators and it is held on a farm just outside Stellenbosch.

Trials is a very safe and eco-friendly motorsport, there is little or no noise and little or no pollution. The environment is not damaged by the riders and, quite the opposite, they go out of their way to keep everything in it’s natural state as possible.

This is a great opportunity to see the best riders in the country competing against, nature, their peers and themselves close-up and personal. A spectator can be metres from the riders as they are going very slowly and deliberately over the obstacles.
