After a ride-safety and bike handling training, I got interested in gymkhana.
Yesterday, I did a few very low speed practices and dropped my bike twice.
Only a few scratches on the crash bar and a painful wrist.

The beauty of gymkhana is that you don't really need a lot or special stuff, not track needed and fairly cheap.

But in The Netherlands it's not really known.
The UK has some gymkhana clubs, in Belgium and Germany it's getting more and more familiar.

Here some movies from a Belgium event (check also: vmgv.be )

The Belgium are very creative with their course.

This is a course diagram that is used by the first open dutch gymkhana championship.

It's including distances between the cones (it's in meters)

I also found this beautiful PDF-file. It looks like 33 pages of gymkhana basic elements.
