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.

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.

MTCQ wish to advise all trials riders and clubs that we will not be conducting an Easter Trial this year. Due to a lack of committee members and key officials the club has found it too difficult to organise and run events at this time. We are hopeful that when positions are filled we may be able to conduct events in the future.

Clake News - March 2015

There has been lots of exciting things happening in the world of CLAKE lately!
Multiple World Superbike Champion and MotoGP winner Troy Bayliss won his debut race with the CLAKE at the main event at the Baylistic Scramble at Phillip Island ending up pulling out a big lead.

Due to Troy’s scoring an unexpected Superbike ride with Ducati he got a mate of his, another World Superbike Champion Troy Corser to ride his KTM in some of the other races. This is me giving Corser some (very) last minute advice on using the CLAKE. He ended up finishing a very close 3rd in a world class field.
