BAD WEATHER & BROKEN BONES. The 6th Tril Tua Arisan. Sandi Maulana

We got a somewhat cryptic text from Sandi Maulana the other day.

Hello guys, how are you? Yesterday's event was good.
It's a shame that the race was cancelled after the qualifiers, because there were many accidents & fractures for 3 people & the extreme weather.
Sorry for this. Maybe the next event will be more optimal.

The 6th Tril Tua Arisan or ATT 6 was once again on the Indonesian riding calendar for 2022. It hadn’t been held since 2018, a three year absence mainly due to you know what, the resurrection of the event was greeted with unbounded enthusiasm from all quarters. GTT chapters across the country; The various ones across Java, West Sumatra, Jambi, Lampung, Bali, Lombok, Kalimantan, South Sulawesi, and even Papua signed up. An unprecedented 1100 riders registered. The total number of attendees was around 4000!

You will see ‘Tril’ appear a lot. It means trail in Indonesian. Especially in riding groups names. Like the ‘Geng Tril Tua’, or ‘Old Trail Gang’. I’m leaving them in. Just thought I’d give you a heads up.

Geng Tril Tua (GTT) organized to hold the event in the Dieng Bosweisen area, Wonosobo, Central Java. The location had been announced at ATT5 back in 2018. There was no going back from that.

This is the saddle of land sandwiched between Mount Prau (2565m) and Mount Bismo (2365m) The plateau itself is at around 2000m. An incredibly beautiful spot, one might even say breathtaking given the cold, and the fact it's incredibly wet, it is located in a thrust of mountains in Central Java which push the rain clouds down it’s length.

Three groups formed the organising committee; the Wonosobo Tril Tua Gang, the Ngapak Raya Tril Tua Gang, and the Mount Prau Vintage Enduro. While other support came from 75 Garage Jepara which became the main sponsor, suppling the door prize of an an old tril Suzuki TS125 they’d custom built as well as other direct and indirect support from the various layers of the Indonesian Trill Tua Gang.

Months before the event people were doing Tril Tau workshops, and the Tril Tua spare part craftsmen and suppliers were working overtime to get peoples bikes ready. The official GTT apparel company was absolutely flooded with orders from the Indonesian old tril community as they prepared themselves and their Tril Tua bikes to attend ATT 6.

Everyone joined together to get involved in the excitement of the event, starting from social service activities, Fun Trips around the Dieng landscape route, chatting and strengthening the Tril Tua community friendship from various GTT chapters, to the climax of participating in the Fun Race on a very challenging artificial circuit at the Dieng venue

“This ATT 6 was very exciting, even though it was raining and we were covered in very cold air, it did not dampen the excitement for all who were present to enjoy ATT6. Thank you to those who did come," said Ardoz, the chief executive of the 6th Tril Tua Arisan.

But it had rained before people came. And it rained while they were there. The qualifiers had to go through the 1100 riders registered and just running some, not all of those riders left nothing but knee deep wheel ruts at the start and mud baths and potholes aplenty. The organisers thought it prudent to shut the riding side of things down after three people broke various bones, nothing too bad, but they didn’t want to push their luck. Sensible.

The bands and party though, well that just went ahead. If you can’t ride bikes. You might as well have a damn good time. Besides, dancing always keeps you warm in the mountains!

Bahasa Indonesia

Cuaca Buruk dan Patah Tulang, Akhir yang terlalu cepat untuk ATT 6

Kami mendapat teks yang agak samar dari Sandi Maulana tempo hari.

Halo guys, apa kabar? Acara kemarin bagus.
Sayang sekali balapan dibatalkan setelah kualifikasi, karena ada banyak kecelakaan patah tulang untuk 3 orang dan cuaca ekstrim.
Maaf atas ini.
Mungkin event selanjutnya akan lebih optimal.

Arisan Trill Tua ke-6 atau ATT 6 sekali lagi masuk dalam kalender balap Indonesia tahun 2022. Acara yang sudah absen sejak 2018 lalu. Tiga tahun terutama karena kamu tahu kan, kebangkitan event ini pastinya disambut dengan antusias yang tak terhingga dari semua tempat. Cabang GTT di seluruh negeri; Berbagai yang ada di Jawa, Sumatera Barat, Jambi, Lampung, Bali, Lombok, Kalimantan, Sulawesi Selatan, bahkan Papua pun mendaftar. Tidak disangka 1100 pembalap mendaftar dan total 4000 peserta bahkan belum pernah terjadi sebelumnya!

Kalau kamu melihat 'Tril' muncul di beragam tempat. Itu artinya jejak dalam bahasa Indonesia. Terutama di komunitas motor. Seperti 'Geng Tril Tua', atau 'Geng Jejak Lama'.

Geng Tril Tua (GTT) sendiri direncanakan dan dibuat di kawasan Dieng Bosweisen, Wonosobo, Jawa Tengah. Diumumkan di ATT 5 pada tahun 2018 silam.

Ini adalah trek tanah yang terjepit di antara Gunung Prau (2565m) dan Gunung Bismo (2365m) Dataran tinggi itu sendiri sekitar 2000m. Tempat yang sangat indah, bisa dibilang menakjubkan karena dingin, dan sangat basah, terletak di pegunungan di Jawa Tengah yang mendorong awan hujan ke bawahnya.

Tiga kelompok membentuk panitia penyelenggara; Geng Tril Tua Wonosobo, Geng Tril Tua Ngapak Raya, dan Enduro Vintage Gunung Prau. Sedangkan dukungan lainnya datang dari 75 Garage Jepara yang menjadi sponsor utama, pemberian doorprize tril lawas Suzuki TS125 hasil custom made serta dukungan langsung dan tidak langsung lainnya dari berbagai lapisan Gang Trill Tua Indonesia.

Beberapa bulan sebelum acara, orang-orang melakukan lokakarya Tril Tau, dan pengrajin serta pemasok suku cadang Tril Tua bekerja lembur untuk menyiapkan motor terbaik. Perusahaan apparel resmi GTT ini benar-benar dibanjiri orderan dari komunitas tril lawas Indonesia saat mereka mempersiapkan diri dan motor Tril Tua mereka untuk mengikuti ATT 6.

Semua orang bergabung untuk terlibat dalam kemeriahan acara, mulai dari kegiatan bakti sosial, Fun Trip keliling jalur landscape Dieng, ngobrol dan mempererat silaturahmi komunitas Tril Tua dari berbagai chapter GTT, hingga klimaks mengikuti Fun Race di sirkuit buatan yang sangat menantang di venue Dieng

“ATT 6 ini sangat seru, meskipun hujan dan kami diselimuti udara yang sangat dingin, tidak menyurutkan semangat semua yang hadir untuk menikmati ATT6. Terima kasih kepada yang sudah datang," ujar Ardoz, Ketua Pelaksana Tril Tua Arisan ke-6.

Tapi hujan turun sebelum semua orang datang. Dan hujan turun saat mereka berada di sana. Babak kualifikasi harus melalui 1100 pembalap yang terdaftar dahulu  dan belum sampai semua pembalap, beberapa yang memulai akhirnya hanya meninggalkan, selain bekas roda setinggi lutut dan mandi lumpur dan lubang pot banyak sekali. Panitia akhirnya menganggap, keputusan paling bijaksana untuk menghentikan pertandingan setelah 3 orang cedera patah tulang, meskipun tidak terlalu buruk, tetapi mereka tidak ingin memaksakan keberuntungan mereka. Masuk akal. 

Band dan pestanya, yah, itu saja. Karena tidak ada aktivitas motor paling tidak kita masih bisa bersenang-senang. Selain itu, selalu bergerak bisa membuat kita tetap hangat di pegunungan!
