Club Rules







Vintage: The vintage class rides the Sportsman line

* Some events may offer an Open class. The Open class does not award trophies and allows the rider to choose whichever line they want to run in each section. The rider chooses to ride for fun only and not to be scored in a trophy class.



1. Riding gear must include at a minimum a helmet to be wore at all times while riding and protective boots

2. No pre-riding of set sections. If caught riding a set section the rider is disqualified from being

scored in the event

3. Each scored event will run 3 loops with each loop containing 7-10 sections

4. Some sections may be set for higher classes only and some set for lower classes only. This will be announced at the riders meeting

5. One rider at a time may ride a section and only enter once the section observer has called them

6. Section observers announce the next rider by holding a closed fist in the air and calling “Rider”

7. The rider must announce to the observer which class line they are riding before leaving the start gate unless the class is on the front plate

8. All riders walking the section must step out of the ribbon when a new rider is called

9. Do not argue with the section checkers. Any scoring protests must be brought to the trials master for that event

10. The rider with the least amount of points at the end of the 3 loops wins the class

11. Trophies will be awarded to the top 5 finishers in each class except Open

12. A rider may choose to compete in any class that he or she is qualified for, however, the trials master for the event may disqualify any rider that is riding an unsafe class for his or her skill level



Fault Definitions: 1-3 POINTS

1. Footing or Dabbing: Any contact providing support between any part of the Rider’s body or

motorcycle (exceptions: tires, foot pegs, or skid plate) with the ground or an obstacle (tree, rock,

etc.). Note that ‘toe dabs’ will be counted as footing: 1-3 points, no more than 3

2. Foot rotation on the ground: 1 point

3. Sliding a foot: 3 points

4. Both feet placed on the ground simultaneously, one on each side of the bike: 2 points

Failure Definitions: 5 POINTS

1. The motorcycle moving backwards, with or without the Rider footing. This includes crossing your line.

2. Any displacement, breaking, or knocking down of markers by direct contact of the motorcycle or rider requiring that the marker be reset to its original position is a Failure. Touching a boundary is not a failure

3. The rider dismounts from the motorcycle and has both feet on the ground on the same side of the motorcycle, or if both the rider’s legs are behind the motorcycle’s rear tire with both feet on the ground

4. The rider does not have both hands on the handlebar when footing while stationary

5. The rider receives deliberate outside assistance

6. The rider changes the condition of a Section while not riding the Section

show a raised, balled fist and announce “Rider” in a loud voice to authorize a Rider to start riding

the Section

8. The engine stops while footing or while any other part of the motorcycle, except for the tires, is

used for support, without forward motion. The motorcycle must be moving forward while footing
