They weren't talking about the details but mostly about several small bike companies lobbying for this in an effort to "save" the sport. Everyone seemed to think it was a bad idea.
This makes little sense to me. Does this mean what is implies? I'm totally new to motor trials, my new bike hasn't even shipped yet, I'm not expert on a push bike either but on a bicycle if I'm riding up a very technical section I sometimes have to stop and regain my balance then pedal on up. I'm also watching Ryan Young's Advanced Trials video and they are constantly stopping forward motion to set up for an obstacle. It seems to be one of the main techniques he is teaching. I must be misunderstanding the rule.
Personally I think if you have the ability to ride backwards to retry something you should be allowed. Seems to me if you don't go out of bounds or put your foot down or balance yourself with a handlebar or body on a rock or tree you should be able to do anything you want.
Will this apply to trials in the US too? Would someone please fill me in. Thanks.
