Default Video - Speed trials comp...


Yesterday I rode in a speed trials competition. Basically there's one
course and each rider does two timed runs of it. Then three finalists
are selected and they race once more in the finals. It was really
fun.

The course was really tough (I thought), especially since it was so
long. I think my first run was the most tiring trials riding I've done
in my life, and they put a log ride at the end for when you're
completely buggered.

I made a 3 minute video of the day including some unicycling, trials
bike riding and trials motorcycling. Some really amazing stuff from
some of the bike guys.

Here are the videos...

I forgot to mention, that wasn't me...it was one of the bike trials
guys! That is if you're referring to the clip with him dropping from
the pallet A-frames.

Great video.

It was good to see the different wheeled machines tackling the same
obstacles.

Thanks guys. It's funny watching the bit when I go up the ladder during
my timed run. I couldn't believe I stayed on, it was just getting
faster and faster!

The guy who does the drop on the unicycle (who's not me) does just about
everything - unicycling, bike trials, downhill, moto trials.
