Moto Trials is a sport based on traction and balance skills. These skills form the basis of many other motorcycle sports. Hence Moto Trials is popular as a training ground for sports such as MX and Cross Country. Many top riders have had Moto Trials training at some stage.

During the afternoon lap you will have an opportunity to see Trial Riders in action and have a chance to try for yourself.

The idea is to ride between the tapes without putting your foot down at any stage. It is possible to exit the section at any time by crossing the tape and riding down the hill.
