2017 Scot Hop Gate Trial is ON!

The 2017 Gate Trial is on for November 5, 2017.

The format is a gate style event where the object is to get as many points as possible by attempting multiple "gates" or obstacles in each section, each adding points to your score. The event is for fun only and is not part of MOTA points or standings. There is no cost to ride. The event will be held at the Alexander Farm in Oxford, MI. Also known as WTF. (Wholesale Tree Farm) We really will need some help to get ready for the event on the two weekends before .(October 21/22 and 28/29) Please feel free to pm Keith or email at if you can come out and help.

Everyone is able to ride the event. No workers on the day of the event, as it is self /peer scoring. Excellent event for all skill levels and bikes. It can be as easy or as hard as you choose. We have a great time, and great garage party afterwards. Bring something to grill, there is a place to cook and fridge to keep things cold. The garage can be heated if its is cold. Great spectator event too. Plenty of room to park. Porta John and water available. More info and details to follow.
