Meanwhile a look at the Enduro classifications where the championship winner is still currently open. So far the current leader in this championship is Matthew Gauci riding on a Yamaha who leads so far with 92 points. Gauci is followed close by Joseph Scicluna on a KTM motorcycle with 79 points. The order continues with 3rd placed Ian Scicluna followed in fourth place by Andrew Cassar.

Meanwhile, the Association ASMK on Sunday 3rd April 2016 continued the activities by the Trials riders at ‘il-Barrier fix-Xaghra tal-Qaduma’ in the limits Mosta where ASMK staged the fifth event of ASMK – Pasta Poiatti Trials Championship for 2015/2016.
A Light look at the day’s Trials event where we see the experienced competitors in Class A. Here we saw great competition between Damon Bonello and Joseph Scicluna both on Gas Gas motorcycles. During the six sections Bonello was seen to make a good start where Scicluna had immediately started registering penalty points that prevented him from advancing in the score scale. The hope for Scicluna ended when Bonello continued advancing in the last two sections by riding the last section with a Clean result. Bonello finished as the winner of the day followed by Scicluna. Third place was won by Rowen Bonello riding a Beta motorcycle while Gary Debono this time had to be content by winning fourth place on a Sherco.
In the Class B of Trials the competition was seen between two competitors where Ian Scicluna on Beta dominated and won this class. Scicluna was always followed by Manuel Camilleri on a Gas Gas motorcycle who closed the day in second place.
Other Trials events are to be held on Sunday 17th April 2016. Further information on the location will be given soon.
