Women’s Cup & Diener Holmes Trial

July 12 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

2020 SA Women’s Cup Trial & The Diener / Holmes Sidecar Trophy

First run in 2009 this is the very first event in South Australian motorcycling where the girls and women headline the event and has twice been nominated for the FIM Women in Motorcycling Award, in 2016 (finalist) and 2018.

Through its history so far, the event has attracted over 70 girls and women from all states of Australia to ride, including the absolute legends of women’s trials in Australia, Bev Anderson, Michelle Coleman and Kristie McKinnon, as well as almost all of those who have represented Australia at the Trials des Nations (Ailsa Anderson and Jenna Lupo are the 2 missing), which includes SA’s own Sofie Kraft and Lillie Yiatrou.

As always, the SA Women’s Cup will feature a full range of classes for junior and senior riders; PRO (red line), EXPERT (yellow line), SPORT, MASTERS (blue line), NOVICE, JUNIOR A (white line), SUB JUNIOR (black line), MINI TRIAL (non-competitive & run of section)

Trevor Diener and Philip Holmes are the Keyneton MCC’s greatest Champions, with 7 Australian Championships to their name as a sidecar team, and one each separately, for 8 each in total, and, they were also 10 time South Australian Champions and were never beaten in the Peter Sparkes Sidecar Trophy, and all in a career that only spanned a little over 11 years together as a team!

The naming of the Diener/Holmes Sidecar Trophy in 2009 was made to coincide with the Keyneton MCC 2 Day Trial, as it was at this event in 1988 that the curtain was drawn on their extraordinary career, with a fine farewell victory over the, then, newly crowned Australian Champions of Lawson & Gould from Western Australia.
