    Have a Trials bike? Please get in touch

    Hi guys.
    We have dedicated a huge chuck of the farm (the whole area to the right of the first red loop line) for Trials sections and Trials Rider development.
    We are starting to plan a few official trials sections this Saturday, and hope to lay them out like they would in SA Trials Competitions. These will be Clubman class lines as we assume most of you are new to Trials. We will leave setting the upper class lines to the guys that actually compete at those levels.

    The long term plan is to have many Trials Sections all with the various levels, Training area, Training days, Drills Days, a few local Trials events and hosting formal Trials events if so required. We are not just going to drop a few pipes or logs at a spot and that is that, we are actually going to simulate a real trials event setup WITH a training area. Those who have competed in a trials event before, or have gone to spectate will understand what I mean. There are 10 plus sections you have to do in an event. So too will it be by us.
    Trials however is better done in groups. Lone riders usually quickly sell their bikes so we therefore want to make sure you are all connected and in collaboration and that the more experienced guys can transfer some skills to the newer guys and we can do our bit to grow the sport.

    It is therefore important to us to know what it is you guys want, what the skill levels - , and the numbers in those skill levels are so we can focus on the critical needs first.

    So if you have a Trials bike, or is in the process of getting one, and want to dip your toes in the sport, or actually aim to compete in it, or just want to hone your skills for that matter, please let us know.

    We want to see if we can get you lot together and WITH you, plan and grow the sections.

    PS. If you have the trials bike for just honing your enduro skills, load both bikes when you come visit. You don't pay entry per bike. Just per rider. So you can do trials the morning, and hop on your Enduro bike and go practice the skills you learned out on the enduro loops. Please just don't go to the Trials Area on an Enduro bike.

    No worries. We own the land the venue is on so Green, Blue and Red are marked proper.
    Purple is still under construction and has an "EasterEgg" part of it marked (5.6km of the 20km), but for that, GPS is strongly recomended.

    Just remember. We are only a few months old. The lines have not seen years of traffic so you would need to look up, not at your fender. But you wont have a problem at all bud. Take Tarah with.

    The blue and red are marked well, you won't be disappointed. All things being equal I will be there mid morning.

    The red loop is really enjoyable.
    Beer, so much more than just a breakfast drink.
    If I had saved all the money I spent on beer, I'd spend it on beer.

    awesome, sounds great

    what are the distances of the Blue and red loop ? and how does the red compare to the likes of WW ? taking a lady with limited tech riding under the belt but she has completed a red at WW with a little help in the last river bed.

    Green loop is for small bikes, or people that never ridden anything but flat smooth surfaces. It is 5km
    Blue loop is for Beginner enduro riders. It is 10km long.
    Red loop is for Intermediate riders. It is 10km long.

    Its hard to compare to WW.
    But. If she did red at WW, i suggest take her on blue. See how she copes. (She should be perfectly fine)
    Then, take her on blue again, but this time, skip the first red arrow just after the dam (That is Twisties, and Waterfall), but take the next arrow (pointing left) at the top of the first climb (So you would be doing the Rockspabs with her). Then do that section with her untill you see blue arrows again, then follow those (Don't take any more reds from there so you can skip Apies).
    If she finds that all easy, take her on a full red.

    We have designed the routes like that so that riders can progress easily from one level to the next and take on bigger challenges bit by bit.
