LISTEN & LEARN
For most of us the idea of going back to school will bring with it cold sweats and a sense of failure together with the question: why would you need to be put back in a classroom and shown how to do things that you have been getting along with fine, thank you very much! Most trials riders are very good at just bumbling along, many of us have ridden for tens of years and have just found a level that we unwittingly think is the level we will stay at so we think nothing of it. But just occasionally it will dawn on some that there could be a bit more ability in there, or even that the way they have been doing some things on the machine are just plain wrong, but have no idea how to correct them or how to practise a better method. This is where a trials school comes into play – if you are prepared to listen and learn.
