OSET announced as ACU Youth National sponsor

The ACU Youth National Series, home to some of the best young trials riders nationwide, will be sponsored by off-road electric bike brand OSET Bikes in 2024.

The trials brand has been busy over the last 18 months, during which it was acquired by Triumph and launched the new TXP range.

OSET founder Ian Smith said: “Some of the world’s best trials riders started their careers on OSET bikes. The likes of Harry and George Hemingway, Harry Turner, and my own son Oliver, all now compete at world level. It’s now time for the next generation of riders to grow, and we are delighted to support this championship and the sport we love.”

The brand plans to attend all rounds of the series to offer encouragement and practical support in the form of spare parts and advice.

“We’ll be on hand to help ensure every OSET rider has the opportunity to ride at the highest level in the UK,” Smith said. “We would add that it is possible to participate in just your local round – a bit like a taster – to get a feel for how championship events differ from a normal trials event. For families that have ridden OSET Cup North, we would say if you can ride the red route, you can compete at national level.”

Elaine Connor, representing the ACU, said: “We are delighted to welcome OSET on board. We are all working hard to encourage as many riders as possible to participate in trials competition at a national level.”
