TRIAL

Trial Cycling is skilled driving where the aim is to drive on difficult spots without setting foot to ground or falling.
The order in race is measured by driving skills. Typically a race contains 5-6 different sections that contestants drive through two or three times.
If they put a foot to ground or fall, they get penalty points. After the race the competitors' penalty points are added up,
and the competitor with the least penalty points wins.

  • Elite
  • A
  • B
