There is a northern region trial at the Manie Mulder adventure center in Roodepoort on the 12th.
Will be worth a go look see.

Riding starts at 10am, and there is usually 5 hours allocated, but most guys should be finished in 4ish. Usually no charge for spectator entrance.

Alcohol is essentially nature’s Leatt Brace – with it, you might not be able to move worth sh*t, but you can take a slam or two and be no worse for the wear.

Damn I could have made the top 5 in club class on this one.
The tubeless tyre of the Montessa I was on jumped the bead and it was game over 1 1/2 laps from the end.

Well done to Grim for a solid 2nd.

The guys say they can do a Pistol on their 3D printer, not impressed I have had a Canon printer for years.

I had a great day , the easier enduro style sections are my bread and butter, ride through aggressively and it works.
The more technical ones were a great test of my skills I must still work on.


I'm getting the really tight turns but throw in a slippery off camber section and its another level.

Its called observed trials and you cant thank the observers enough. They spend the whole day marking us when we are out playing on the bikes.

My footpeg hit the overhanging lip on this wall stopping me dead and I was about to put a foot down.
