The Oakleigh Gate trial took place despite the horrendous weather forecast.
After some rain initially, the sections were certainly wet and slippery. However, the weather remained dry throughout the majority of the day, making for ideal conditions once everything began to dry out.
We had a good turn out of riders, with the sections offering challenges to all skill levels. The scoring is very different to traditional trials events and proved to be quite challenging as riders really had to be quite strategic and imaginative in their line choice, as one little dab can cost them all their hard earned points!
A big thank you to everyone who helped organise, set up, score and catered for the event, we really appreciate your time and efforts
Photos of the event are now on our Facebook page. You can see all the photos by clicking here

Everyone is invited to participate in this Gate Trial practice event. The trial is to be held at the Oakleigh Club Grounds on the 26th of November 2017.
A gate trial is a different style of trial where all grades can compete against each other in the same sections. The idea is to score points by riding through pairs of arrows that define a “gate”. The rider decides which line to follow to get the maximum score possible for his or her riding ability. Unlike a normal trial, the rider with the most points wins.
Each grade will get their chance to score a set amount of points through their section AND more points by collecting extra gates as they are running through their section.
There will only be 3 grades; White, Blue and Red.
This will be a self‐scoring event with no trophies; however we do request that ALL riders are to be riding in pairs and score each other.
Hope to see you there.
OMCC will be hosting the fifth round of the Victorian Trials Series at Melbourne’s home of hard enduro, Wildwood.

Cold and wet weather couldn’t stop 20 riders participating in the Oakleigh Motorcycle Club’s TDN training weekend.
Chris Bayles of Tasmania gave plenty of great tips for Saturday’s B, C+ grade and Sunday’s C, Clubman graded riders.
All riders commented on Chris’s great coaching advise and techniques with everybody improving their performance by the end of the day.
Not only great tips were given but a full smorgasbord of food complimenting the BBQ lunch was well received.
This is the 2nd year the OMCC has supported the TDN team and wishes them great success at this year’s Spanish TDN event.
Once again, OMCC will be running a training weekend at the club on the 5th and 6th Aug.
This is not just for club members but anyone that would like to travel to the Oakleigh MCC grounds and participate. Just bring your trials bike and MV licence. We will have “come and try day permits” for those that don’t have a licence.
Chris Bayles who was runner up to Kylie Middleton in last year’s Australian Titles is excited to give up his time to come over and present training to all levels of riders from Juniors right through to Experts.
Chris is a very down to earth guy with a huge amount of talent & experience which he’s only too happy to pass on his knowledge to anybody that participates in the training.
Like last year, OMCC will presented a cheque to the TDN team to help them get over to Spain for this year’s event.
We will be running 2 full day sessions at a cost of $70 per rider with lunch provided.
Saturday at 10am until 3:30pm and Sunday from 9:30am until 3pm.
It would be good to have “C+ grade and above on Saturday” and “C grade and below on Sunday” but this may change depending on when most riders can fit their time in.
So once again, don’t miss this great opportunity as 1st in 1st served.
Just email your participation to: email@example.com
