What is biketrial?
Biketrial is an individual sport discipline that tests the riders' ability on
how well they are able to overcome hurdles. It is ridden on mountain bikes and
special bikes made especially for this sport. Most competitions take place in
beautiful outdoor settings. The hurdles can be either natural (e.g. stones, wood,
streams) or artificial like those that might be found in urban areas (e.g.
wooden pallets, tyres). The aim is to go through each "section" in a limited
time, without the rider himself having any contact with the ground or the hurdle.
At the age of five children can be involved in this sport. Those of eight years can already be taking part in international events. Not only are the children the participants of the competitions, but also their parents are involved with them as their companions. Therefore the
children's hobby becomes a pleasure for their parents.
Because of the riders' abilities, the excitement, and the settings Biketrial is also a very attractive sport for spectators.
Biketrial continues to see ever-increasing growth all over the world.
