Biketrial Federation UK Ltd (BTF) is recognised by British Cycling as the UK’s governing body for the sport of Cycle Trials in the UK and as such it provides the National Cup series each year at which points are awarded for each round culminating in producing a champion and runners up in the nine classes that are currently available.

The Bike Trial Federation is affiliated to the AMCA (Amateur Motor Cycle Association) and as so runs its events through their insurers and uses their guidelines. The competition rules are set by the BikeTrial International Union as well as some BTF additions and amendments to cater for our riders.

The BTF also has close links to the ACU, (Auto Cycle Union) the main governing body for Motorcycle Trials in the UK to which our sport has close links to and shares many riders past and present.

BTF is a not-for-profit organisation limited by guarantee comprising affiliated bike trial clubs operating in the UK.

BTF is run by a committee of volunteers with a desire to do their very best for the trials scene in Britain. The committee is drawn from the affiliated clubs and work is under way to supplement this with representation for a wider range of individuals to allow us to draw on their experience of developing other sporting disciplines.
