Trials scoring
« on: May 28, 2012, 09:39:12 am »
Here I go again showing my age and ignorance, but I have to ask this question. Years ago I used to 'observe' at trials, and the scoring rule was that if the bikes front wheel stopped turning, it counted as a fail and incurred 5 points regardless of whether the rider put his foot down.
Nowadays I see riders frequently coming to a dead stop without being penalised. When did this rule change and why?
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.
