Yeah, I read it. By going to no-stop they are going to fix all of this stuff.

With the aim of making Trial more accessible, reducing the level of the sections, creating more dynamism, reducing the costs and increasing practice and participation, additional measures will be taken in the coming months.

Yeah right. The only way to get more people to ride is to get more people to watch. Then, a small % of the people that go watch will want to ride. Thus going out and buying a bike and participating. I've put on alot of trials and set alot of sections and I always make it a point to talk to some of the spectators. They are always more impressed by the expert/pro riders hopping around and setting up for big obstacles than any other aspect of the trials. Besides, the same guys that are winning now will win if we go to no-stop. Doesn't really matter to them. They're the top dogs b/c they learn to do the hard moves.
