https://crosstrainingenduro.com Want to learn how to ride a trials bike? Trials riding must be the best kept secret in the world of motorbikes. For some reason moto-trials (or observed trials) is only big in Europe and the UK... elsewhere there are just a handful of trials clubs in each country. This introduction to trials explains why trials riders are so glad they are in on the secret - we reckon you should be too! Visit your local moto-trials club and chat with some trials fanatics today. Trial is the world's most popular participatory motorcycle sport. In Australia about one thousand riders compete, - in Europe hundreds of thousands compete regularly. Trial riders compete in ALL weather conditions!
Unlike most other forms of motorcycle sport, Trial is not racing. It is simply you and your bike pitted against the terrain. Trial is a sport of balance, skill and concentration. One at a time, competitors will ride over an obstacle course of boulders, streams, hill climbs, logs, drop offs, and nearly anything else they can find. There are trials classes for everyone. From Juniors of 16 years of age - down to barely walking, through to Veterans from 40 to 70+. There are trials classes to cover all rider ability levels, with Expert, A, B, C, and Clubman/Novice levels. There are also classes for Masters (35+). Other classes include Sidecar, Post-Classic (twin shock) and Classic. Whilst it is spectacular and sometimes appears dangerous at the top level, moto trials is a very safe sport. Speed and other competitors are not factors likely to cause incidents, so the sport of trials remains very safe.
