Young Riders


Youth riders are especially welcome at trials and will be given lots of encouragement. Trials riding is the perfect introduction to any kind of motor sport and will give valuable experience of balance, throttle-control and braking on a wide range of surfaces with a low risk of serious injury. The riders are also a very sociable crowd and will help each other and less experienced riders with advice and support.

Youth riders can compete from the age of four on electric bikes and six on combustion engine (petrol) machines. There are a few additional machine and other regulations for them which can be found in the Trials section of the ACU handbook. This can be downloaded here and is essential reading. Full details of machine and age restrictions can be found on page 197
