We here at Trials know that all you dirt biking squirrels are stashing those Acorns for the winter and this is the season of giving after all. But let’s be honest, it’s kind of the season of GETTING as well so here’s the deal. We want your best winter/holiday themed track and we're putting some Acorns on the line to see them. Hold on though, it’s not that simple.

Last time around we set out to hurt the rider as brutally as possible but now it’s time to reward all your digital avatars with some much deserved R&R. Aside from the holiday/winter theme, this track needs to end with a super comfy rider, relaxing for the holidays. We’re talking a hot cocoa in hand, feet up, It’s A Wonderful Life on the telly, relaxing by the fire kind of ending.

Now as always with these, the track should be short and we’ll be judging the entries primarily on the comfy factor of the ending scenario with drive line, décor and theme as secondary factors. We’ve got the full list of guide lines posted below.

All entries will be reviewed live on the Trials Live Editor Stream Tuesday December 15th at 5pm EET.

Best of luck, riders!

Thanks for making another Track Challenge! These things get my brain-a-turning, I'm running low on new Track ideas.

Now to start building.... hmm, so many ideas... but which to choose from? :confused:

hi guys just wanted to notify you that i have had to put a fix up for my entry , found out there was a flaw in bailing out. I was going to leave it as it was soo funny and cool but not really ideal for a comp entry. Just wanted to make sure the correct one gets played cheers guys:)

Congratulations to Swamp Balls and Funktastic for winning. Shogun, related to Valcanguard Holidays it was just a remake, Christmas themed. Not a serious entry whatsoever or a contender, just wanted to make something small, since I was not able to dedicate more time to a serious entry. Cheers.

After quite a significant deliberation, Shogun and Badger selected the first and second place winners, as well as the five random winners, on today's Editor's Stream.

Before we get into that, The Trials Team would like to thank all the participants for their entries in the Holiday Homework Challenge. We certainly hope you all had as much fun building as we have had checking out your tracks.

First, let's mention our random drawing winners (apologies if I misspell a name or two)

Sane Legend
Redline Tekz

2nd Place


The Night Before Xmas fx

1st Place


California Christmas

Congrats winners! I know this was a tough one for the guys to judge as there were quite a few top notch entries that could have walked away with this one. The Trails Building Community continues to impress everyone here at Trails HQ.

Many Thanks.
