Was the first time I was a spectator at a Trails competition.  Looks very interesting. Congratulations Etienne, you did very well, especially considering it was your first Trials competition.
It's better to burn out than to fade away!

well done 2T  :thumleft:

Are trials bikes like mountain bikes - all hi-tek an all - low weight, carbon fibre and generally very expensive for the latest?

Well done Ettiene... Trails is the most eco friendly of all motorsports too.

This is one of the things that is still on my bucket list to do.

Shed some weight, start doing foot up trials.

It has always intrigued me.


Well done!

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

If I try, I can break the 100kg barrier, can I join? How much is a share?
Somedays, life's like a middlemannetjie.

Nada - no money!
I should have the bike by mid May - ROVRAt is going away till the end of the month and he still wants to redo the clutch for me.

We just do it - I am sure it is fine to share the bike at events, but will find out - in the meantime we'll have fun!
