+1 on the shinguards and helmet. I use regular soccer shinguards and they work great.

Aidan's BMX racing season has come to a close. He's reached his goal of winning the State #1 plate in 9 year old Expert Cruiser (and received the State #4 plate in the Expert class). We have two in a half months till the 2014 BMX racing season starts up again. So, I thought in would be a perfect time to attend the last two moto trials events of the year. Our state moto trials club has a bicycle class (CAT). So, he's going to get his first taste of what a trials event looks like. We've been in the BMX racing bubble for three years now. He's raced state and national events and has dealt really well with the pressure. It's going to be interesting, to see how he handles this challenge.

He has been riding his trials bicycle for almost two years now. I've always set up different 'challenges' for him to ride. But, have never structured his riding in a trials format.

This morning, I introduced cones (I didn't have any tape around) and start and finish gates. For him to start to understand the concepts, of what's going to happen.



It's going to be a fun weekend. I'll post up some pictures and results, next week.

Handing in his first trials score card .

...Aidan got 2nd place yesterday (out of three riders). He had a blast! He had sixteen sections and received 9 points (winner had 3). He even had the opportunity to pull off a couple of intermediate trials moves. He wants to do the next Trials event on the 8th of December. Mission accomplished...!



Then...at the end of the event. I'm talking to one of the Dads. He tells me that he's selling his sons GG 80 Rookie. That's a bike that I've been considering buying for Aidan.

The Darkside...is getting Darker...

Martin is old school trials, Danny of course is new. Now this video is killin' it.

Chris Akrig (of course a trials rider). Funny how these trials guys are branching out, making money and also on the podium.
or getting Red Bull sponsorship.

Thanks for posting Road Bike Party 2. With Martyn Ashton busted I assumed they wouldn't be able to finish it. Pretty cool that the other two filled in. I have seen another excellent video of Chris Akrig, but can't seem to find it now. I still think MacAskill's Way Back Home is the most inspiring piece of riding I have ever seen.
