British BIU BikeTrial Championship 2015 - 21st June 2015

The first British BIU BikeTrial Championship competition in the UK for many years takes place this summer at Bracken Rocks in Derbyshire. A little different to the British Trials Cup/Championship series, it is being run to BIU classes and BIU observing rules (although we have added a couple of Non Championship Classes for riders to have a go out of class).

Awards: will be presented at the end of the day to the top 3 in each championship class as defined below with the winner of each championship class given the title of the 2015 British BikeTrial Champion. Results will be considered in the selection of the British Team for BIU International events if/when such selection is required.

Classes: Riders must compete in their age group. The organisers realize that this will mean some riders will be doing a higher route than normal and some riders a lower route than normal. Sections will be set out to compensate for this and each route colour will have some easy, some normal and some hard sections to cater for all abilities in each class.

Class
Colour Born in
Poussin
White 2006,2007 or 2008
Benjamin
Green 2003, 2004 or 2005
Minime
Blue 2000, 2001 or 2002
Junior
Red 1997, 1998 or 1999
Senior
Red 1996 or before
Elite (see qualification below)
Yellow 1997 or before
Novice (Non Championship)
Green Any age
Intermediate (Non Championship)
Blue Any age

Pre-entry is now closed - the entry form can be downloaded from the Calendar/Events page for directions, and entries will be accepted on the day.

The long term weather forecast looks good so hopefully a dry and grippy day will be the outcome. Section preparation has started and all sections will be staked and taped with coloured arrows as per most international events. BIU rules are in place for all classes and the sections will be set out to suit all abilities, so don't worry about having to ride your age category that may move you up or down a route compared to normal. Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 in each class.

Hope to see you all there.

New Medals for 2015

Many thanks to our new series sponsor for 2015 for having these medals made up for our winners - just 10 of each of this first batch made for the first round at Hook Woods.

The only way to get hold of one of these is to enter and get in the top three!

Get your entry off NOW !!!


2015 Rule Changes - Final rules have been added to the site - check them out here

Needless to say, it's taken a while to get all the rules sorted out this year, and then we discovered at the last minute that UCI have changed their's to give riders only 2 minutes in each section instead of 2½ minutes. This fits in with us nicely, particularly now as we're assisting with the BIU in the UK and their rule is 2 minutes. So, with immediate effect, riders at our UK events will have 2 minutes per section.

In addition, there is a change in the classification of what parts of the bike must go through all markers - this now states "the entire bike" instead of specifying parts.

And finally, the classes have had a little change, nothing drastic but with very low entries in the MTB class that has now been discontinued, and with the coming of a separate BIU event, the traditional BIU Elite class has been removed from the Cup series, leaving just one Elite class (formerly World Elite). Also there are a couple of age classifications added.

. Primary (10 and under) White Intermediate Senior (26+) Blue
  Novice (14 and under) Green Cadet (under 18) Red
  Novice Senior (15+) Green Expert Red (UCI style)
  Intermediate (25 and under) Blue Elite Yellow (UCI style)

Hope the changes aren't too complicated for you this year! A full list will be on the Rules page of the website in the next few days.


British BIU News

Congratulations to Robin Morewood becoming the BIU Delegate for the UK.

Robin's task will involve many issues relating to the BIU, International and European, such as issuing licences, advertising BIU events both at home and abroad, and monitoring the British Team entries to international events, as well as running BIU British BikeTrial Championship events with the full support and co-operation of the Biketrial Federation.

Check out the NEW BIU web page for Robin's news updates and information.

BIU Licence Application form now available from BIU page.


Club dates are out ...
Check the "Events" page for the calendar to date. Both TykeTrial and Crowthorne Cycle Trials Club have set their dates for the coming season, as well as the dates for the National series. Scottish Biketrial Club have now been added, the calendar's getting full!

New venue for British Cup Series
We can now confirm the great new venue for Round 2 of the Series on 10th May at Seymours Arena in Oxfordshire. Used for many years as the venue for the motorbike trials Supertrial and to be held there again later this year. Google "supertrial" to check out their videos, photos etc. More information later.

Confusion to start 2015!!!

We had an excellent meeting for the Annual Meeting on 30th November, all the dates were firmly set to fit around the international events. Unfortunately, we have now heard that the EBU/BIU have changed all of the provisional dates they gave us! We're now trying to fit new dates and venues into the new international schedule. We usually have the British dates set by now but apologies for the delay, we're working on it!

Lot's of other changes to the website should be with you soon, as well as the new calendar - but in the meantime, don't book travel or accommodation based on the provisional dates of the calendar!


2014 Series - Final close
