motorcycle trial

either of two forms of motorcycle competition based on point systems, as opposed to a race for a finish line. The first form includes time trials, which are cross-country events over rugged terrain in which riders are issued route and time cards. These are stamped at control points along the course, and contestants lose a point for every two minutes that they are late in arriving at the stations (the standard is determined at the end by the time of the fastest rider). The highest point total wins.
