I just found this forum a couple of months ago so maybe this has already been talked about. I see where El trial just ran in California was ran no-stop. I know the has been much debate on stop. I don't like posting negative but i have a fear that this will divide a sport that needs to grow. I know while I personalty would benefit from no-stop due to my limited skills I also like to see the upper class ride and use there skills. When i watched my first world round I couldn't wait to see all the big stuff they rode and ended up enjoying more just watching how they stopped hopped and got set up to ride the big rocks I intend to ride sections every weekend either ones me and a couple of buddies want to set up and ride or at an event, I am torn between the two a lot of times. Some of the guys i ride with can hop a bit and can stop and balance for way longer than i can but i wouldn't dream of changing the rules so I can do better and if i did they would find someone less selfish to ride with. I never dreamed that that my old toilet stool would be outlawed that my trials bike would be considered a polluter vrs a racing bike and cant be 2 stroke period(they came to there senses on that at least for know). There is many government regulations that seem ridiculous but for local clubs to limit whether a rider can stop or not beats those hands down.
