Starting Trials

Not for the beginner! Start with an Easy course and work upwards


The basic aim of Trials Riding is to get yourself and a motorbike from one place to another without falling off, stopping or putting your feet down. If you can do that, then you've recorded a clean. Touch the ground with a foot, you'll lose one point, two dabs and it's two points lost, any more than two loses you three points. And if you fail to reach the end of the section, that's five points gone. Of course, it's not quite as simple as that as course plotters make it difficult by including mud, rocks, streams, ups, downs and tight turns just to make it more of a challenge!
