About The Scottish Six Days Trial
- Hits: 1145
The sport of Observed motorcycle trials is best described as a test of riding skill over observed sections. Unlike other motorcycle disciplines, Trials is not about speed. It is about balance and concentration. When competitors ride the observed sections their feet must remain on the footrests of the motorcycle and the must remain between the laid out flags or markers. They must negotiate steep gullies, slippery rock steps, rocky streams or boulder-strewn gorges. Sections vary in length and severity, and riders are penalised if they put their feet down to help them ride the section, and more so if they fail to negotiate the section in its entirety.
