BTTT.

I wear a tennis type sweat band on my left wrist. It is great to wipe off sweat if you get the large one. Dale Malesek has been wearing them for 20 years. Yea, who would have thought riding trials makes you sweat.

Anyone have tips for riding loose sugary sand? I'm running realy low tire pressure 3-4psi.

Planted the front wheel in the sand and over the bars I go

It looks like you need riding gear more than you need riding advice.

Also try leaning further back on the bike to keep the front wheel lite.

Thats a personal decision, you can wear whatever you like, but please keep your concern for my safety to yourself

Thanks, that what I've been working on. This was the first time over this obstacle and I was very tentative and paid for it. I did make it over 3 more times today with the only traction being on top of the tires. Kind of strange spinning the tire through sugar sand and then getting traction.

Oh I'm not concerned. But if you want to learn to ride, more time riding and less time healing will be to your benefit.

+1 but not only that... trials boots will actually make riding easier even when not healing. proper trials boots have the perfect sole to grip pegs and dab with.

Hold pressure on the tires (or other obstacle), drop off with the bike orientation "flat" with more pressure on rear wheel.
