After 15 editions exclusively devoted to the asphalt, the Bikers’Classics broaden their horizon and open up, for the first time, for an “off-road” discipline. A Vintage Trial category is preparing to make its entrance as part of the big rendezvous of classic motorcycles. Not surprising if you remember the past – even the recent past – of the Spa circuit
In 2005 and 2006 the World Championship trial was organized on the site of Spa-Francorchamps, after many editions in Bilstain and before the current ones in Comblain-au-Pont. The opportunity to see for yourself, that the environment of the most beautiful circuit in the world is particularly suitable for practicing this spectacular discipline. Everything is there to provide varied zones and links: impressive natural obstacles, swirling paths, sloping roads, … All of this in a green environment as only the Ardennes can offer.
The old trials will fit perfectly in the decor of the Bikers’ Classics, especially because the atmosphere of the vintage trial meetings is just as convivial as that of the Classics. And because many manufacturers of that time were active both in speed and in off-road, and especially in trial. Think Triumph, Norton, BSA, but also Honda, Yamaha etc.
Soon more information will follow about this first participation of the trials at the Bikers’Classics, and the start of the registrations on April 1st on the website www.bikersclassics.be
