Competition is based upon points for acrobatic ability on an MX bike over jumps.
Trials are based on agility and manoeuvring the bike into almost gymnastics-like situations, up or down steep terrains and balancing on precarious elements, both natural and constructed. This tests the skill of the rider based more on dexterity and balance rather than speed.
Motorcycle gymkhana is a motorcycle time trial sport in which riders compete to manoeuvre in the shortest time through a paved course restricted by traffic cones or other obstacles. Motorcycle gymkhana is especially popular in Japan.
Hare scramble is a form of off-road motorcycle racing that varies in distance and time, with the riders completing multiple laps around a marked course through wooded or other rugged natural terrain.
The rally is an off-road endurance event. The terrain that the competitors traverse is much tougher than that used in conventional rallying, and the vehicles used are typically true off-road vehicles and motorcycles, rather than modified on-road vehicles.
