The two German trials riders, Jonas Friedrich (21) and Oliver Widmann (19), recently released a new video where they demonstrate five (Six according to Bashguardian) trials tips, trend and tricks.
Whilst there are lots of helpful tutorials about trials riding on YouTube, this one is for the trials community and shouldn’t be taken too seriously… ?
“We love trials, and there are many great riders with unique style, charisma and personality. We wanted to share our favorite tips that we learned from them”, says Oliver.
In the video they’ve snapped up tips and tricks from some of the best riders out there, such as Giacomo Coustellier, Benito Ros, Charlie Rolls, Vincent Hermance, Jonas Kristiansen, Nicolas Vallée and Jack Carthy.
#1 Push yourself
This one is obvious. The more you scream, the better!
#2 Clean your obstacles
Super important, but remember in competitions: Using your hands are strictly forbidden!
#3 Remove your helmet visor
It looks ridiculous, so why not?
#4 Don’t dab
Tape your feet to the pedals before your next race, and the victory is yours!
#5 Use kickers
It improves your vertical jump!
#6 Take ambitious measurements
We all learned to round up in elementary school, so what’s the problem?
