The property was in good shape and yielded many good sections designed by the LRMTC crew.

connor-hogan-2015

Connor Hogan is getting set for a huge season in 2015. Once again Connor will be riding under “Team H” banner in 2015 aboard his brand new 2015 Gas Gas Pro 125cc “Racing” Model. The team have an exciting schedule this season competing not only around Australia but also in Europe. Connor will compete at the 2015 EM Youth Trials Championships. This series is held over 3 rounds; Italy (April 11), Belgium (August 15) & Switzerland (August 22). The series is for riders under the age of 16 as of the 1st January and would be the last year that Connor would be eligible to compete.

Back in Australia the big event of the year that Connor’s main focus will be the Australian Trial Championship which is going to be held in late August at Pacific Park, Connor will be competing in either the Junior or Youth Category. Connor’s season in South Australia will be somewhat disturbed by his trips to Europe which will make it unlikely for him to defend his SA T.R.O.Y Series or
SA “Star” Award. However he intends to compete in the Victorian Moto Trials Series, Queensland Moto Trials Title and the SA Moto Trials Championship.

Connor has scheduled 10 South Australian events, 3 overseas events and 5 interstate events which is going to be a full on season, but hopefully with reward!

motorcycling-australiaMotorcycling Australia (MA) is pleased to announce the launch of its new Elite Performance Academy (EPA).

The initiative, which will supersede the previous Australian Institute of Sport-based program, is set to involve the nation’s top young riders from all disciplines.

Speaking about the EPA, National Development Officer Laurence Miller said it will be purely invitational; with selected riders invited to participate in the first phase of the program on the Gold Coast from June 12-14, 2015.

A selection process will then take place to determine the first intake of the inaugural Elite Performance Academy squad, who will then be invited to an advanced follow-up camp in September.

“This is an extremely exciting announcement in regards to the development of our elite motorcycling talent in Australia,” Miller said.

Trials Australia Forums, the discussion boards for the Trials Australia website has reached a major milestone recently. The "Basket Cases" thread, originally started by Greg Harding on July 16th, 2009 has just passed 100,000 views. The TA forums set up in June 2003 by Keith Jobson to bring Australian Trials enthusiasts together, has received an average of 2000+ posts per year since 2009 and had 400+ active users posting in 2014 and has grown to include many regular international contributors.

We have taken this opportunity to highlight Basket Cases, which can be a bike reduced to parts needing a Basket home or can be a Bike being built from scratch with parts from other Bikes. 

Greg Harding writes...
Firstly I would like to thank everyone who has contributed, certainly there has been help from friends old and new. 

People often ask why I ride old bikes so I suppose I should share a little about myself and my Trials story, like most things I do it is a little backwards. Having always been fascinated with all things with wheels, Trials came much later in life with 40 being a major turning point and change in lifestyle. I decided to start riding Trials, joined a club, looked at classes and being 40, Greybeards, now Veterans was an obvious choice. No one told me that I needed to get accredited in lower grades until much later.
