The colours listed above are also the line each class rides, with the green line being the most challenging, or for the expert riders, down to the black line for the novice riders, with orange being run of section for the newest of riders – so Trial is definitely the discipline that caters for riders of all ages and abilities.
Sidecar 1 & 2 also ride to separate red/white & black/yellow lines, not the single colour as listed above.
TROY Series SA classes will be as per previous years – and will combine some classes, with the lowest point score on the day getting the TROY points, with the classes being;

|· WHITE***||JUNIOR A & JUNIOR B|
|· BLACK & WHITE||TRIAL 5, TRIAL 6 & THE HISTORIC CLASSES|
|· RED & WHITE||SIDECAR 1, SIDECAR 2 & SIDECAR CLASSIC|
*** If numbers dictate, Junior A & Junior B MAY run as separate classes in 2023 – which for the sport of Trial is quite a brilliant effort – to have that many junior riders in the sport!
Self-scrutineering will once again take place at ALL events in 2023 – with the self-scrutineering attached to all sup regs. Riders have to print off the form and bring it to sign on at events – no form, no ride! But, Scrutineers will still check up to 10% of all bikes, as well as ALL helmets.
