Trials Evolution Gold pre-order includes beta access

Trials Evolution: Gold Edition isn't due until March 21, but waiting is for suckers. Ubisoft announced today that the beta has begun, and pre-ordering before March 14 will grant you access.

During the beta, Ubisoft and RedLynx will be hosting a track creation competition using the track editor. The best and brightest will be featured in the Track Central, and the creators will get some exclusive (but unnamed) prizes. Other features new to the PC Gold Edition include improved physics and visuals, and all 129 tracks from both Trials and Evolution.
