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

The NYACT Erin, Galway and Richford events were a success, so we are now planning on one more event to finish out this year. See the REVISED 2020 schedule. With this revised schedule, we will now be counting the best 3 out of 4 trials for year-end number plates.
  The Covid protocols that were in place for Galway, will continue as is, unless circumstances require a change. However, some of the wording has been changed to emphasize certain points, particularly regarding scoring. Those protocols are listed here.
