Updated schedule, sessions and more now available for Trials Training Days 2019, weekend of March 29-31

Trials Training Days 2019 is less than 2 weeks away and the weather forecast indicates it’s going to be 75° and sunny. If you haven’t signed up, what are you waiting for? Click here for TTD online registration!

Here’s the latest news from the TTC about this year’s TTD:

Rental Bikes and Bikes for Sale

We are getting a greater than normal call for rental trials motorcycles for this year so if anyone has an extra bike they would want to rent out, they should post it on the TTC Facebook page, or contact us. The TTC is not involved with any rental transactions, but we have a rental checklist that people can use. Off-road bikes are also welcome.

Anyone registered for TTD who has a motorcycle for sale can bring their bike to display, but the TTC accepts no responsibility for the transaction or their bike.

Concessions

Jerome’s Fine Swine and BBQ will be doing concessions for Trials Training Days! Stop at the TTC pavilion for Black Angus hamburgers and hotdogs for lunch, and mouth-watering BBQ plates for dinner.

Good Girl Goodies will have breakfast breads and muffins as well as desserts, and they always sell out. They take requests and orders in advance so you can order your breakfast bread, muffins, or brownies now, and have them waiting for you when you get there.

And yes, there will be coffee!
