The Classic Offroad Show which is held this weekend at the Telford International Centre on the 4th & 5th February 2012. Trials UK is shipping a ton of gear down to the show to sell at unrepeatable prices, along with showing some impressive old and new bikes and the latest in quality electric OSET bikes.
It was a Yeadon and Guiseley trials weekend this weekend. In my experience, Y&G put on some of the best trials in the area because the sections test you and they’ll catch you out – causing you to dab - but they’ll never leave you worrying about hurting yourself. That’s absolutely great for a beginner rider like me because it helps to increase your confidence – and I’m still a that stage in my trials-biking where that’s really important. I rode with Si and Clive today and, as it was a Y&G trial, I was really looking forward to it.
Being consciously incompetent is a horrible feeling. It’s when you actually know how bad you are at something without having to be told. Not only that but you’re fully aware that everyone else around you seems to be immeasurably better than you are. Well, that’s where I’m at right now with my trials riding. When fishing we used to refer to such people as ‘Noddies’ – effectively, those with all the gear and no idea.
