Our Championship...

The trials clubs within the West South Wales centre run each year a series of events (trials) to make up the West South Wales centre championship. Catering for levels from Sportsman to Expert, and running across many venues, the championship provides a great level of competition across all sorts of terrain types, difficulty levels and lap lengths. The championship is only possible because of the dedication from the Clubs, Officials, Observers, and everyone else who chips in to ensure this continues to run year on year.
