Most of our Events feature a specific ‘JUNIORS CONDUCTED’ three route course suitable for young beginners (which might also be referred to as the ‘small wheels’ course in the Events tab)
These routes are intended for the C,D & E classes, (so from 4 years upwards) and for suitable petrol and electric machines with small and medium wheels.
Please note all youth riders on petrol and ALL ELECTRIC bikes must have cut-out lanyards fitted and used. The ones for electric bikes are different from the ones used on petrol bikes. Contact TrialsUK for info.
All riders on any of these courses must adhere to the relevant ACU rules regarding ACU Registration, protective clothing, age and bike type. For details, click on the ‘Links’ tab on the menu bar above; click on ‘ACU’ which will get you to the ACU home page. From the menus click on ‘ACU Handbook’ which you can read online. Then you need to locate the Trials section of it where you’ll find all the relevant rules. If you are registered with the ACU you should already have a hard or soft copy.
Traditionally parents help out with the young riders, showing the correct lines, observing etc. It’s usually left to a couple of the guys to mark the courses out in advance but IF ANYONE CAN HELP OUt PLEASE LET MARTIN, RUSS BRODIE OR CHRIS FANNON KNOW AT THE TRIALS, or Martin’s number is 07974910714
