About The Scottish Six Days Trial
- Hits: 873
If you are a competent trials rider and hold a licence under the SACU, ACU, MCUI or an international FIM licence, then in theory you can ride the SSDT.
However, in practice things may be slightly different! The SSDT is probably the only time that you will ride your bike for six consecutive days of tough riding, so don't underestimate the level of fitness required to get through it, and that goes for both you and your bike! You need to be sure that you are bike fit as the trial requires a good deal of physical strength, and most importantly, stamina.
It is a well-known fact that the fitter you are, the less energy you use, especially in the sections, so the average clubman has to be pretty fit – the fitter you are the more you'll enjoy your week!
