Urban Trial in Cahors, France
Each year, in a little town called cahors in France, they organise an urban motorbike trials competition with all of the best riders from around the world. For the last few years they have had a biketrials competition on the saturday evening. The mountainbike riders have to ride exactly the same sections as the motorbikes! It has a different format to normal trials events, using the french open-free format. where you gain points through section, the harder the obstacle, the more points you get. This is the best format for the spectators and is great for the riders aswell. It was a great event and I placed 5th at the ned, but the whole field was world champions and was a very high level competition. We all had a great time and put on a great show for the crowd. Check out the shots! We also rode a big speed trials competition after the main competition, I ended up in second place just being beaten by Vincent Hermance at the last second!
