The FIM Trial World Championship is the most important and the best motorcycle trial competition series on the international calendar. It is the first year since 1992 that Scotland has hosted a stage of this prestigious World Championship series; and will see seven other Grand Prix events being hosted in Spain, Portugal, Japan, France, San Marino, Italy and the Czech Republic.
Paul Bush OBE, Chief Operating Officer at EventScotland, the national events agency, said: 'Nevis Range is one of Scotland's most iconic landscapes and will, without doubt, provide a sensational backdrop for the SPEA FIM Trials World Championship. This is the absolute pinnacle of motorcycle trials competition and the event will attract thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts to the Scottish Highlands as well as competitors from around the world and their supporters. The Trials will also enjoy massive global broadcast which will showcase Scotland's unrivalled scenery, enthusiastic supporters and fantastic terrain for adrenalin sports to millions.'
