2023 FIM Trial3 World Champion


If you think of the Hertz FIM Trial World Championship as being a ladder, then the Trial3 title has to be considered the first rung on a long and testing climb to the top.

It is an ascent George Hemingway – Beta began in 2022 when he finished fourth in his debut season in the class before the fifteen-year-old demonstrated maturity that belies his young age to claim the biggest prize in Trial3 this year.

Trial is very much a family-orientated sport and nowhere is this better illustrated than in the Hemingway household. George’s big brother Harry famously won the 2022 Trial3 title, his father Dan and uncle Ben are both highly respected former international competitors, and a certain Dougie Lampkin is a blood relative too.  

Soaking up the pressure that inevitably goes hand-in-hand with such an incredible legacy, Hemingway has proved himself to be a very fast learner this season with his ice-cool temperament and rock-solid consistency carrying him to victory as he made it three Trial3 titles in a row for British riders.

Finishing fifth on the opening day of the season in Spain was not exactly an auspicious start for Hemingway, but it would prove to be the one and only time he finished off the podium all year. With six rounds and twelve points-paying days of competition to decide the destination of the championship, Hemingway took six wins, three seconds and two thirds to come out on top by twenty-three points.

While on paper this looks like a comfortable win, points on a page do not accurately convey the hard work, dedication and talent that carried Hemingway to his first FIM World Championship title in what has been an incredibly competitive class this year.
