08/04/14 British Round 1 - Hook Woods, Surrey
 

Rather a wet, muddy and difficult, but still enjoyable, first round of the BritishTrialsCup at Hook Woods.

Unfortunately the rain overnight on Saturday changed the sections, which had been set out in the dry, into a little more difficult than we'd intended and brought in some high scores. Even so there were still a lot of smiling faces and most people seemed to have enjoyed the day.

Thanks to everyone who came and especially to Graham Tickner and his team at Crowthorne Cycle Trials Club, Mick Carthy and Robin Morewood for all their hard work organising and setting up the event.

The next event is Round 2 in Blackpool on Sunday 4th of May, entry forms will be available soon.

See you all then!

01/04/14 Biketrial Sheffield 2014 - a great success!
 

Sheffield Hallam events management students, working with Biketrial Federation UK and Tarty Bikes, organised a city-centre charity trials event in Sheffield on Sunday 30th March as part of their final-year degree project. 22-year-old Laura Cocking, whose boyfriend is a cycle trials rider, decided that she wanted to organise a trials event after attending Tarty Days in Essex in 2013 and approached Biketrial Federation UK, the organisers of the British Trials Cup, and Tarty Bikes for support and advice.

Laura and her team of fellow students, Holly Benson, Emily Challender and Dan Armstrong, were offered a prime location right in the centre of Sheffield, between the Crucible theatre and the Winter Gardens, offering plenty of public exposure and a stunning backdrop for the event. The 60 tickets sold out weeks in advance, with some of the UK's top riders and people from as far away as Inverness and Cornwall on the rider list.

On the day, the square was bustling with riders, volunteers and spectators, lending a real party atmosphere to proceedings. Audiences were wowed by displays of skill, power and precision from the riders and the pros, including current Junior World Champion Jack Carthy, were rubbing shoulders with the youngsters and beginners, offering advice and encouragement throughout the day while pushing each other on some of the bigger and more technical obstacles that had been laid on by the organisers.

There was even a give-it-a-go area, organised by Tarty Bikes, where the public could try their hand at the techniques being displayed. Riders also had the chance to compete against one another in the gap jump, high jump and speed trial competitions, which saw some of the biggest crowds gathering around the barriers on Tudor Square. As you might expect, World Champ Jack Carthy picked up the win in the Elite gap jump and high jump contests, just edging out team mate Danny Butler and fellow UK trials stars Sam Oliver, Matt Arkwright, Joe Oakley and Rob Poyser. Danny Butler then took the win in the speed trial contest that closed the event, powering round the course in just over 7 seconds. In the under 16 rounds, Josh Pollard saw off the competition in the gap jump competition, while Jack Iveson won the high jump and Adam Morewood clocked the fastest time in the speed trial.

Ben Swales, from the Biketrial Federation UK, said: "I'm really pleased to have worked with Laura, Holly, Emily and Dan on the event on behalf of Biketrial Federation UK. Laura in particular has been working extremely hard and we've been impressed with her competence, drive and enthusiasm. With help from us and Tarty Bikes, they've managed to put on a brilliant event that has brought biketrials to a big audience and we've all had a great day! Even though this was a one-off event for their degree, we've had people asking us all day when the next one is and feedback from riders and the public has been fantastic. All in all, it was a fantastic, well-organised event with a great atmosphere that was a lot of fun for everyone involved. With some awesome riding on display and everyone involved, including spectators and passers-by, having a brilliant time, it was a great showcase for the sport. Not only that, but Laura and her team raised over £750 for the Cathedral Archer Project charity, which helps Sheffield's homeless".

04/03/14 British Trials Series 2014

At last, we're now able to confirm all the events of the British Trials Cup/Championship Series for 2014. There's been quite a few changes this year trying to streamline all the classes and add some extra interest to the series, more information on details later. We hope to see you at as many events as you can make it to this year - help us to make it a good season for trials and promoting the sport!

Round 1 entry form is now available from the Events page.

The rule changes are taking a little longer than expected to update while we got the venues sorted out. The entry form for round one is now available and you may note that the classes have changed for the 2014 series: please note that the 2013 Intermediate and Cadet winners will not be required to move up a class unless they feel able to meet the challenge of a higher route. Similarly, the Elite 50/50 riders from previous years may wish to move down a route; this is acceptable this year due to the class changes. Full rule changes should be available soon.

 
10/02/14 Competition Trials with a difference - Tartybikes Open Trial
On 14th September Tartybikes, working with the Biketrial Federation will be running a one-off experimental competition which allows the rider to tailor-make the difficulty of each section, making it ideal for someone who would like to try comps but isn't sure which route to ride. Instead of 'dropping' marks by dabbing, points are awarded for cleaning gates, and with a speed bonus available this should make for some exciting viewing too! Watch out for the entry form coming up to get your entry in time!

  As well as the usual series of competitions, we have news coming out of several fun events organised by groups for fund-raising. The first one being (all being well) in Sheffield City Centre on 30th March organised by students from Sheffield University as part of their course. Members of the Biketrial Federation will be working with their team building man-made sections and making sure you have a good time. Keep watching on the site for more information and for the entry form.
  The Federation was really proud of all those who competed abroad in 2013, bringing back loads of medals to the UK from both UCI and BIU competitions around the world; we'd really like to encourage more of you to attend the international events, they're good fun and it's a really good experience taking part. If you need any information, just and we'll try to help out.
