In the Trials videos discussion Heffergm posted: So what did you do to stay motivated to ride trials through the early falling down stages? I suppose it might also make a difference but when you began riding trials were you an adult or child? If you have any recommendations for new riders starting out, what would you say to encourage them to keep at it and not fall into the 90% that give it up? I'm asking this for myself since I have a habit of getting just good enough at a hobby and then giving it up (windsurfing, radio control sailplanes, guitar, bagpipes and more!) But I'm also thinking if it is that common for people to give trials up that it is a problem that needs solving in order to keep enough people interested in it!
