The Manx Trials Club organises and promotes motorcycle trials in the Isle of Man for solo and sidecar machines for all abilities, with the emphasis being on the enjoyment of the sport. Events are held throughout the year for modern and classic twinshock machinery.


We are reliant on the continued generosity of landowners for providing access to the fantastic trials areas we have on the island and wish to express our thanks to them along with our loyal observers who regularly give up their time.


Our premier event is the Manx International Classic Trial which has become a key element of the Festival of Motorcycling and attracts riders from all over the world to ride our classic sections and enjoy the beautiful scenery of our island.



Our next event will be the opening round of the 2019 Azzy Paints Twinshock series and will take place on Sunday February 10th at Colden Plantation, Baldwin. Signing on will be at 10.00am for a 10.30am start.


There will be the usual hard and easy routes with classes for Pre 65, Twinshock & Air Cooled Mono machines and a guest class for modern bikes.




The AGM for the Manx Trials Club will take place at the Horse & Plough pub on Wednesday February 20th starting at 7.30pm 


Following the conclusion of the meeting awards for last years events will be presented and there will be a buffet supper.


The committee would appreciate if as many members could attend as possible particularly those who have won awards.
