European Trial Championship in Poland – Preview

After the first round held in Castelloli over 1 month ago, the FIM Europe Youth and Women Trial Championship is back in the upcoming week-end. The 2nd and 3rd round are scheduled in Miekinia, 4 km from Krzerzowice, Poland.
It is a quite famous venue, become almost a fixed appointment held every 2 years. Thanks to a small area completely closed to traffic, the local club can fully satisfy the main purposes of this event – reserved to women and the very young boys. It means that even those who have not yet the right age to get a regular riding license in their country, are allowed to compete with trial motorcycles.
Not only, but Krzerzowice offers a huge benefit also to public, because they can watch the whole competition, simply walking from one section to another, all in not more than 10 km squared.
There will be two different rounds: one on Saturday 26th and one on Sunday 27th: two loops with 14 sections each.

It will be very interesting to watch the reaction of the favorite in the Women’s class – the two times European champion German Theresa Bauml, defeated by Spanish Berta Abellan (in the photo) in the previous and unique manche disputed until now. But Italian Sara Trentini won’t be there only to assist to their fighting. She climbed the podium and will at least defend her third position. Also often on podium in the last season Norwegian Ingveig Hakonsen, who is preparing to recover from her fourth place in Castelloli.
Not less important the battle in the Youth class. Spanish Martin Riobo, Swedish Linus Almthen and Italian Andrea Gabutti are ready to repeat their superb performance of the last time, all conscious that in these two rounds they are playing an important chance to get the 2018 title.
As usual, two more International classes will be open to riders less skilled in both categories of Women and Youth.
