    It's TRIALS, dude. She RODE it there, and she RODE it out.

    Look up some trials videos on Youtube, and you can sit there like I do and go "WTF???"

    She rode the Youth National this year winning the Womans class.
    Its awesome to watch this stuff, She and my son passed me in ability (Or lack of balls in my case)..
    She won all 3 days, its amazing the control this guys have, to be able and have the confidence to pop over to another rock etc.... Flug,its always a compliment when you comment on one of my pics, yours are all artwork!!!
    Here is a training session, and her playground behind her,

    and she later moved onto that slab of concrete

    Awesome pic's of your daughter and son the Sherco's showing how it's done! I've only discovered trials 4 years ago. After 38 years of riding experience I thought I knew a thing or two about riding a bike but that ego was quickly flushed down the toilet the first time I had competed. It is truley amazing what the upper level riders can accomplish on 2 wheels. My 9 year old daughter rides youth level in our local club with my 5 year old son to soon follow. She may never make it as far as a champion on a national level but she will surely embarass a lot of the boys with her riding skills thru out her life.

    Just let her ride at her own pace, praise her for everything she accomplishes on that bike, get her down to the Nationals along with your son, They will walk away with something that will stay with them forever, If you guys are going to the BRF in Wis last event, Let her go out with the Womans class( same basic line ) My daughter will be there and will be in very good hands, she will be riding either Int. or adv line, but rides with the ladies, do this !!!!!!:clap
    Your daughter will soon be pounding on the boys in Novice soon !!! get those pics up !!!

    I totally agree, the life skills are the core reason of why I coaxed them to ride trials. It's so much more than being able to just do cool stuff on a bike. BRF may be a tough one for us to make with my work schedule but we will try to make it out there to one of the WOTA events. We will for sure finish up the year at Theilman and North Mankato. Not sure if you are aware but there is the threat of a national 3-day event at Spirit Mt MN in August of 2013. The only info I've seen so far has been thru Aerostitch and their ad for the Very Boring Rally. I hope like crazy this happens as the last one was incredible to watch.

    Well do your best to keep her spirits up, I just bought a used trials bicycle for the kids to learn some basic stuff also..
    this has helped a bit also as far as they learn basic moves and convert to the big bike, Kids learn crap so fast.......
    Now back to the Dads and Daughters Thread......... ( Sorry ) :lol3
    My daughter will be on the lookout for her so she will be on her toes.....
    Best of luck and be safe

    :deal

    thats just so very cool. I'm just a casual fan of the sport but I know they are every bit as talented as those who ride at a much higher mph over whatever the course might be. good for both of them! :clap:thumb
