DISCIPLINE:

Trials is one of the most exciting and spectacular UCI cycling disciplines. Unlike other types of cycling disciplines, Trials is a sport where the main factors are the stability and the control of the bike in extreme situations where speed also plays an important role.

The discipline started in the 1970’s in Europe and grew as an off-shoot of the motorised version of the sport. After several years, it became clear that Trials had more in common with cycling than motorcycling. Thus, since 1985, Trials has been fully integrated discipline at the International Cycling Union and has rapidly developed as a cycling sport.

Whether it takes place in the forest or in the city, the sport is practiced around the world by children as young as 5 years old through to adults over 40 years of age. Nowadays it is generally accepted and recognized that the skills, control and experience gained in the Trials discipline are fundamental to developing the skill sets required by other cycling disciplines and that of motorcycling too.

The objective of this sport is to get over obstacles grouped into sections, without setting foot on the ground or any part of the bicycle (only the wheels) touching the ground as this incurs penalties. After negotiating a series of sections, the rider who has the fewest penalty points is declared the winner.

RACE SECTIONS:

There will be 10 different sections for the race  20'' and 26'' . Here you can see an example using tree trunks:
