Welcome to the NEOTT MotoTrials Web Site

FIM World Round

July 29-30 : Kingman, AZ.  Fly into Vegas, rent a car, 90 minute drive to Kingman.  Details are here.

NEOTT NIGHT TRIAL - Saturday Aug 5th 9 PM ~~ Midnight

The SATURDAY 9 PM rider's meeting will be in Hogan's campground NOT out on the road where we normally meet. This is a fun trial - no NEOTT points at stake. Out of state riders welcome. Cost is $20\rider.

Group Ride - six sections and four loops all below the dam so a short loop. 4 lines through the sections (1) NOV : (2) AMA\SRAMA : (3) INT\SRX : (4) EXP\MAS.

The obstacle sizes will be scaled back from normal to account for the additional challenges of riding in the dark but offset by some "special features" (meaning not following typical NATC rules) like a figure 8, full lock turn, narrow boundaries etc, that will require a little more technical skill so you might want to practice some of those in advance (just sayin').

At minimum you'll want a helmet mounted light of some sort so you can shine the light where you are headed. Accessory headlights like Chris has will help also. Also probably handy to have a handheld pocket flashlight for walking the sections. Carry spare batteries.

Suggest you arrive around 6-7 pm on Sat and you can get setup and preview the sections\loop in the daylight.

Should be done by midnight\1 AM then catch some sleep and get up in the morning and go play ride.
