Entries to the Brit championship (hard course) are less than 10 at the majority of the events, and reverting to no stop is unlikely to make a scrap of difference here. Maybe it would be a better idea to try and attract new riders to trials, rather than making rule changes which seem to be too little too late?

Oh no, the year was 1997 and I was one of two trialsmasters at taos ski valley. We called it by the rules, and being the seasons end I had to make decisions on protests that held riders whole year at stake. Was not the fun day I had hoped for!!

Oh I remember that National so well. Enter into a section, hit a rock ledge, put foot down to push on up the ledge and look up to see a checker with a 5 - WTF? I was so pissed and then after the event I heard there were like 60 protests. The no stop rule sucked so bad. The day before in Colorado they were not 5ing you for a nano second stop. We made the long ass drive all night to New Mexico, show up for the Sunday event in Taos and the trials nazis were all about 5.

All I am really saying is, if we are going to ride enduro lets ride enduro!

I am thinking that I could probably do armature and maybe even intermediate (if LBD didn’t set the sections)
And even if I am overestimating my abilities with that bike, I am very use to being used as traction, by little girls
