The North American Trials Council met this past weekend in Columbus, Ohio, where it set the schedule for the 2015 and 2016 US National MotoTrials Series, as well as made a few structure changes to a couple of the national classes. In a effort to keep travel costs down for riders travelling to the national events, the NATC has split the Support class championships into East and West divisions, while the Pro, Expert and 125 Expert classes will contest the entire schedule. Starting in 2015, the series will be divided into the AMA/NATC Eastern National Championship Series and the AMA/NATC Western National Championship Series for the following classes:
