Deeside to Donside (D2D) Long Distance Motorcycle Trial

Sunday 6th October 2024                               SACU Permit No. 012628

 This is not a speed event 

 You the rider are an ambassador for this new form of 

 motorcycle sport in Scotland. All eyes will be on us. 


D2D Long Distance Motorcycle Trial

While this type of event has long been popular south of the border this is the first time such an event has been organised in Scotland. We are aiming our first event at off road novices and riders of dual sport bikes who would like to ride them off road legally. This is a competitive event even though speed does not play a large part in determining the winners. As such you will need an SACU / ACU competition licence to take part (if you don’t have one we can supply you with a One Event Licence which will allow you to take part) and you will need to read and understand our rules of entry which can be found on the Information Page. Enduro or trials riders will be familiar with the rules and entry procedure.

An LDT is a mixture of road riding and off-road riding all while navigating your way around using a roadbook or mobile phone following the route we have set. The winners are determined in the off-road sections where an observer will mark your performance. The different types of test and their scoring systems will be explained in detail before the actual event. Anyone who has ridden trials will be familiar with the scoring systems.  We will be using some or all of the following test types,

  • Trials: Touching the ground with your foot once counts as a mark, touch twice loses two marks, touch three times or more loses three marks, coming to a stop or missing a marker loses five marks
  • Hill Start: Touching a foot to the ground whilst moving off counts as five marks
  • Regularity Test: Completing a marked course in a standard time. Lose marks for being under or over the standard time.
  • Timed Test: Riders will be timed between two points

The rider with the lowest number of observed marks and penalty points at the end of the day will be the winner. There are five different classes to compensate for the performance of the bikes being used. Each class winner will receive a trophy and all finishers will receive an award.
