PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) announced today the 2010 schedule for the 10-round AMA Racing/NATC Observed Trials National Championship Series, as well as the dates for the East and West Youth Championships.

Riders vying for national titles in several age-, skill- and machine-based classes in the AMA Racing/NATC Observed Trials National Championship Series will begin their campaigns on May 1-2 in Tishomingo, Okla.

In the East, top youth trials riders will face off July 2-4 in Sequatchie, Tenn., while in the West, youth titles will be decided on July 17-19 in Las Vegas, N.M.

"The feats that these riders achieve on their motorcycles, from scaling vertical cliffs to crossing seemingly impassable rock gardens, will keep any fan coming back for more," said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley. "Trials is one of the oldest forms of motorcycle sport, and we're excited to begin another year in the storied history of this incredible discipline."
