A glorious day in Perth greeted 50 riders including a number from interstate and NZ, in WA for the National Championship the following weekend. Competitors faced 4 laps of 10 sections at the AJS Trials park over a combination of man made and natural sections, with the waterfall section in the main arena proving popular with spectators.

Kiwi Jake Whitaker pushed Price on his all day, and a final tally of 6 saw him take 2nd place from fellow NZ rider Blake Fox.

In B grade it was another Perth local, Tristan Lowe (TL Moto Trials Sherco) with a comfortable win, cleaning  30 of the 40 sections.

Brenton Hogan visiting from SA for the Nationals, took out the Vets category, and NSW youngster James Boyle scored a narrow 1 mark win over Luke Patane in Juniors.

Steve Barrington capped off a great season with the C grade victory, following his move from moto x to trials, with young Conner Hogan from SA taking 2nd spot.
