The 2022 Tryals Shop & NYACT Trialmaster Contest results are shown in the table below.
   The goal for each Trialmaster was to design sections that would produce an overall average score, per rider, per section, of 2.5 points. When that happens, riders of all abilities can have an enjoyable day.  The results are ranked according to distance (plus or minus) from the 2.5 target, with the best listed first.
  Trialmaster      Distance from target     Actual score
Pete LaCagnina          0.18                          2.68
Seth Bruce                  0.20                          2.30
Roger Hastings           0.32                          2.18
Chris Arnold                0.60                          1.90


   Therefore, Pete takes home the first place Tryals Shop Private Lesson Certificate for $75.00, and Seth receives the similar second place award for $50.00.  This gives each winner an individual session for him and a buddy of his choice.


   In addition, resident artist Karl Faruzel is working on another custom designed award for first place.
   All four hard-working Trialmasters deserve our gratitude and respect. Without them, there would be no trials. Thank you to each of them!
