Utah MotoTrials Association


The event on May 20th has been moved to Emery due to the previously scheduled event being moved to Elberta.

Course Marshals

Due to a new rule, instituted at the beginning of the 2023 season, riders must Course Marshal in order to be considered for year-end points. Let the club know via Facebook or via email at traviswhitney@utahmototrials.com if you would like to be added to the list or to modify an existing entry.

The Course Marshals will meet at the event location the Saturday prior to the event. If you haven’t set up a course before, don’t worry, experienced Course Marshals will be there to supervise the entire process. Typically, you’ll work with someone who knows what they are doing and you’ll simply put down ribbons and tape where they tell you to. If someone hasn’t reached out to you to set the specific schedule for setting up the course, please reach out to Dave, Troy or Ryan via Facebook.

History and Introduction

Utah MotoTrials Association (UMTA), previously known as Wasatch Trials Association (WTA), was formed in the early 70’s, by a group of Trials enthusiasts that wanted a Trials club to host monthly Trials competitions throughout the State of Utah.

Utah MotoTrials Association is small in overall members, averaging about 80 members with 30 to 50 riders attending each monthly event.

The club is lead by a President and a Steering committee of 4 to 6 members. At least 4 Steering Committee members are voting members. These, along with the club president, are responsible for the annual operations of the UMTA as well as the successful outcome of each event. Any rule or operation changes are filtered through the Steering Committee members and voted on before any significant changes are made to the UMTA. There are also several other non-voting steering committee members involved with administration duties that keep the UMTA and its events operating smoothly including Federal land permits, Web site design and maintenance and annual rider stats.

The Utah MotoTrials Association is a state-wide club, with its membership spread throughout the state, hosting a monthly event on private or federal land during the months of March through June for the spring season and August through December for the fall season.

The UMTA is also the only motorized sport in the Utah Summer Games, one of the State’s premier sporting events attracting close to 10,000 athletes for the Games, held in Cedar City each summer.

With the advent of the internet and global search access the name Wasatch Trials became too localized so the WTA started going by the new more recognizable name of Utah MotoTrials Association (UMTA).
