Question Trials Riding Technique

Lot's of threads about the bikes but not much info on Technique.

I don't think I'll be getting into Trials Competition anytime soon, but I'd love to be able to ride my Dirt Bike over some of the Huge Obstacles like Trials Guys do and Good Enduro Riders.

For example the kid clearing the boulder; this is probably a pretty tough technique to nail down. I can ride over them big logs out on the trail, like the kid in the background is doing but shamefully it's not easy for me.


Logs are about the only Obstacles around here; I don't think there's any rocks for over few hundred miles.

Here's some of the Obstacles from one of our upcoming Hare Scrambles. I take the easy way around but it adds a lot of time to your lap to bypass. I took the bypasses at the last HS I did; I probably coulda made the Log Crossings but didn't wanna hold up faster riders if I didn't make it on the 1st attempt.



This is a shitty pic but the rocky portion is a step up jump to the larger dirt obstacle
