That was a most awesome clean, finished on a 2. Raga and Fajrado(?) were 2nd with 15. Bou is unstopable with the current rules.

Well today was the day the British championship went to ` real trials` rules. The dreaded no- stop to you hoppers! Interesting Dabil was third with a single 5. Was it a real 5 or just a confused no forward motion? Time will tell.

I don't hop, but I do stop. And balance. And get my sheet together for the next obstacle, turn, down, dog (yeah, it happens) that I have to deal with in the section.

Not a fan of No Stop, but if it comes here to the club level, I'll deal with it.

No stop rules tend to make riding trials more user friendly for beginners, and also easier to set courses. Not sure how popular trials is in the US, but maybe anything thats likely to encourage new riders would be worth looking at anyway?

I've found the best way to recruit new trials riders is to loan your trials bikes to your trail and enduro riding buddies when you are working a event. Our beginner line is already very easy and would never require stopping to conquer any beginner obstacle. Allowing stopping seems to make it possible to create more varied sections on the same property so it can be used year after year without getting boring.

If you want to ride no stop, just get an old bike with drum brakes and twin shocks and ride Vintage. Modern Nov/Intermediate sections are usually set to be ridden with out stop/hop. Advanced/Expert is where you NEED to be able to master hopping b/c the truns are tighter and aproaches are shorter.

Well if you want to master hopping try something without a motor!
No just kidding! I started this thread in the first place since the Britsh championship has just went back to no-stop to boost the entries. Will be interesting to see what happens. And the only way anyone will ever get close to Bou would be a rule change!
