Introduction to the first Trial EC round in Tanvald (Czech Republic)

Posted on May 31, 2013 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)



The 2013 UEM FIM Europe Trial European Championship is  on the go with a two-days event in Tanvald, North Czech Republic, this week-end. On Saturday it is scheduled the first of three rounds of the Youth Cup and Women Championship. On Sunday the usual four classes of the real European Championship that this year consists of 4 rounds.



Nearly 150 riders have already sent their entry-forms for a championship always live nevertheless the world economic crisis. In the woods of this well known Trial venue, on Saturday the very young riders and the best women will fight on 12 sections to do twice. Still two loops the day after, but 15 hazards to be faced by the most blazoned pilots.



Particular care in drawing the sections has been dedicated by the organizers, taking count of the new “non stop” rules. Indeed as already applied in the FIM world championship, also in these series if the rider stops into the section , no matter if feet up, he is given five point of penalties, that means the maximum negative score allowed for each section. Because in almost all the countries who sent the riders riding in this week-end, the new rules has not adopted yet, it will be interesting to see who among the participants will be able to change quickly and fruitfully his way to ride.



To hazard a prevision in the first round of the year is always quite hard, not having had the chance to observe eventually progresses done by the single riders in the winter. But after the great performances done by the team Italia in the last edition, able to occupy totally the podium in the top class, we reasonably look forward to expect excellent outcomes from Matteo Poli -Ossa – and Luca Cotone – Gas Gas. But a tough nut will be without doubt Sweden Eddie Karlsson , who this year  moved to Jotagas, the only one belonging to the world-pro class in the world championship. Good chances to fight for podium positions are  for home country-mate Martin Kroustek-Beta., too.



More complicated the situation between the Junior, where many riders can cut a fine figure. British Bradley Cox, German Franz Kadlec  and Italian Gabriele Giarba will be for sure play a role of protagonists.



In the Over 40 class, the odds are on Dutch John Van Veelen, Italian Valter Feltrinelli and French Philippe Bontemps, while between the women on scene the day before British Emma Bristow and Spanish Sandra Gomez are the most quoted.

26/2013 Change format for EMX 125 2 Stroke and EMX250cc

Posted on April 25, 2013 at 5:55 AM Comments comments (0)


Due to the magnificently high number of entries for the 125 2 stroke (69 entries) European Championship and the 250 (94) European Championship for Portugal, Youthstream and FIM Europe are delighted to be able to announce a change in the race format for these Championships permitting every rider to race. The former format would have sent home more than 50% of the riders after the timed practice not allowing them the chance to race, however it is imperative for the young riders to be able to race in order to improve.

Youthstream sees the European Championship as the base of our sport's pyramid and it's fantastic to see the number and quality of riders increase with each year.

The format will consist of 2 groups for the free practices, 2 groups for the timed practices, 2 semi-final races and a last-chance race on the Saturday, then the final will be held on Sunday and broadcasted live on MX-LIFE.TV. Points for these Championships will be given for the results of the final on Sunday.
