Advanced riders demonstrate skills that would be a challenge even on modern bikes. In NYACT, all competition is performed on air-cooled vintage bikes from the classic years of observed trials. Here we see David Murphy navigating a tight turn on his 1981 Fantic 240.


Camaraderie is a big part of the vintage trials experience. Here, two long time NYACT members Carl Peters and Kevin Carey , are discussing strategy at a NYACT event

We hope that all of you are safe and have been unaffected by the Virus. After much deliberation, we are planning to hold the NYACT event on August 9th in Galway, as originally scheduled.
  In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, many of the usual protocols have been changed, and are listed below. Please review them to see if you want to ride this event and are willing to agree with the protocols.
Please read the mandatory protocols that will be put in place.
