The FIM Trial Vintage Trophy awaits you at Monza

“Time is running out to claim your place at what promises to be the biggest celebration in trials history ever!

The first-ever FIM Trial Vintage Trophy will be held on September 24 at the iconic venue of Monza in northern Italy, where it will share center stage with the 2022 FIM Trial Des Nations – and good news for competitors is that the registration deadline has extended to September 12.

Riders from Andorra, Belgium, France, Italy, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and the United States have already registered for what will be a truly international event and many other nations are expected to be represented .

The FIM Trial Vintage Trophy will play a big role at this year’s TDN with two main prizes at stake – for best performance on a vintage motorcycle and best performance on an authentic vintage motorcycle – and there will also be a support class in competition on easier sections.

If you feel like giving it a shot – or just want to be able to tell your friends you’ve faced some of the biggest stars in the sport – then click here to reserve your spot.

Bernie Schreiber as a guest star

American trials legend Bernie Schreiber will be master of ceremonies that day. Indeed, the 1979 Hertz FIM Trials World Champion will interview a generational selection of some of the sport’s biggest stars.

Of course, it’s not all about competition. Whether your weapon of choice is a state-of-the-art GASGAS or a twin-shock Montesa, you are all guaranteed a warm welcome, even if you just want to attend and admission is free.

On Saturday evening, there will be a Trial Des Nations by reservation only and a vintage cocktail reception after the TDN presentation where fans can rub shoulders with their heroes. This will take place at the Autodromo of Monza and everyone is welcome – you can book your tickets here.
