Trials around Bilbao

16 posts in this topic

Is anyone familiar with trials around the Bilbao area. Any trials shops in or around the city ?? Any clubs in and around the city ??

I know Gerona is a big trials area but not sure I'll be over as far as that but I will be in the Bilbao area for a few days soon.

I just did a quick google and found the Basque Motorcycle Federation (http://www.fvm.es/). It looks like there are a couple of trials in September and a couple in October. I imagine these are "Open to Centre" events and there may be other club trials if you dig further.

Looks like they're all around 50 miles or so from Bilbao. It all depends on your dates. It would definitely be fun to go and see how they do it in the Pais Vasco.

50 miles is perfectly fine but I can't find anything.

I'm away there next week so really only the weekend of 16th/17th.

I'm sorry I'm missing your point :wacko:

I shall be in the Picos for 3 days, then in Bilbao the weekend of 16th/17th then over to the Pyrenees for 3 days, I don't have time to get to Girona so any trial in and around Bilbao on that weekend will be easily manageable, Girona on the other hand not, hope that clears things up, but who knows.

Looks like the riding license cost 190 Euros a year or 50 for the day in that part of Spain.

There is a 2-day classic trial on 16/17th at a place called Maeztu / Maestu, south east of Vitoria.  About 60 miles from Bilbao to the start.

 

Check out their Facebook page here, you will need to use the map link on that page to see where it is as Google maps isn't finding it.

Here's the link to the route map (single 28km lap) and spectator directions http://www.motoclubmasgas.com/contenido/item/219-marcado-de-zonas-trial-maeztu-2017

in simpleterms you need to be prepared to cover greater distances. if the trial is 60 miles away youll be very lucky.

I'll be on a motorcycle so covering 60 miles or more isn't a problem, getting to Girona and back to Bilbao in a day would be.
