Following the recent cancellation of the Scott Ellis Trophy Trial due to freak weather at the time, Staffs Moorlands MCC have managed to sort a replacement date of 1st December see

More sad news passed onto us by Scott Ellis: Bill Chell Staffordshire Moorlands great trials friend and enthusiast died on Tuesday 12th NOvember 2019. More info will be here when known.

Harry South and Ian Dommett made the Northern Experts Trial their swan song for observing after decades. Harry is currently Manchester 17's observer of the year having travelled all the way from his home on the North Wales coast to observe at all our major events for as long as anyone can remember. Ian Dommet, Harrys pal, ex Cheshire & North Wales Centre Permit Sec and hard working trials organiser who usually observes with Harry has been struggling with poor eyesight to the point he is now unable to observe. The Team at Man 17 thought it would be good to give em something of a keep sake to remind them of the fun they've had over the years helping run trials. The picture below was taken early morning Saturday before the start of the Northern Experts.

B Class 125cc Mono or 250cc Twinshock, and Electric up to 10 bhp measured at the rear wheel

                                Engine Sizes

Rebores are permitted subject to the resulting engine capacity not exceeding a tolerance of +3cc


All land belongs to someone and riding on it requires the owners permission - simple

Practising at ANY Trials venue, with the exception of known practice venues with the landowners permission (see below) is not allowed

If you're caught by the land owner, or if they find there have been riders practising we will lose the use of the venue completely. NO LAND = NO TRIALS!
