Utah MotoTrials, previously known as Wasatch Trials Association (WTA), was formed in the early 70's, by a group of Trials enthusiasts that wanted a Trials club to host monthly Trials competitions throughout the State of Utah.
From the beginning the WTA has strived to be a "riders" Club, focusing on the riders and their families, the comradery and fun of the sport.
Utah MotoTrials Association is small in overall members, averaging about 80 members with 30 to 40 riders attending each monthly event.
The Club is lead by a President and a Steering committee of 4 to 6 members. At least 4 Steering Committee members are voting members, these, along with the club president are responsible for the annual operations of the UMT as well as the successful outcome of each event. Any rule or operation changes are filtered through the Steering Committee members and voted on before any significant changes are made to the UMT. There are also several other non-voting steering committee members involved with administration duties that keep the UMT and its events operating smoothly including Federal land permits, Web site design and maintenance and annual rider stats.
The Wasatch Trials Association is a State wide club, with its membership spread throughout the State, hosting a monthly event on private or federal land during the months of March through June for the spring season and August through December for the fall season.
The UMT is also the only motorized sport in the Utah Summer Games, one of the State's premier sporting events attracting close to 10,000 athletes for the Games, held in Cedar City each June.
With the advent of the internet and global search access the name Wasatch Trials became too localized so the WTA started going by the new more recognizable name of Utah MotoTrials Association.
