  1. Having seen the Scorpa in the flesh at Sheffield the whole engine area looks tiny which possibly makes the rest look a bit bulky. But I do agree with you. They have to keep the width though otherwise would be awful and unstable.
  2. So, everything we've seen from Sherco (and Scorpa) is that there is a load of weight savings on the 2023 bikes - 4.95kg we're told. Just seen the new download for the 2023 bikes and the weight 66.95kg Yet the 2022 bikes were (so we're told) just shy of 70kg Where have the other 2kg's gone?

    you can be pretty sure it wont be a trials machine. The Ossa tooling and tech would probably be property of KTM Gas Gas now I'd imagine. I know Mecatecno bought a lot of the Ossa bits - frames etc etc
  4. Given my looming years, tendency to fall off and inability to fix as well as I used to I'm looking at getting chest and back protection. Looking at the protectors and how they work / are formed they all seem much of a muchness apart from pricing.... the Comas one looks great and only £59.99 whereas the Jitsie appears very similar and is £95 Anyone know if there is anything glaring that the Jitsie offers over the Comas one? (or suggest another alternative) thanks
  5. Spain is normal though and stop allowed. Cant for the life of me see any benefit to this new enduro style thinking. Riders, teams dont like Wont add any viewing pleasure for spectators So what's the point? 🤔
  6. Jeeez.. no wonder all the riders / teams are p*ssed off. What a mental thing to introduce. Wonder if they'll abort given the widespread condemnation from everyone involved

    2021 TRS 125RR

    My son rode a 2019 RR and while the bike felt nice it had no 'get up and go' compared to his Gas Gas. He rode a Beta Factory, Scorpa and a TRS and found the TRS his least favourite in terms of torque and grunt. I believe this has been rectified on the later 125 TRS but not sure.
  8. Seen lots on social media with the Spanish riders slating the opening round and rule changes. From what I can deduce there is some kind of time element involved now around quickest rider etc... What is this and what happened? Saw Casales picked up a nasty injury as a result.

    2021 GP models?

    21 GP should be April time and only cosmetic changes + some minor changes that are on 21 Racing
  10. As new prices rise, second hand prices follow. Pretty basic economics alongside supply & demand always driving prices

    2021 GP models?

    New GP out in April/May I believe, no changes expected
  12. With the withdrawal / retirement of James Dabill and Jack Price from Trial GP I think that leaves only Dan Peace as a UK rider in the top level for 2021 and possibly on 10 riders overall. You'd probably assume that 1 or more of Fuji (nearly 41 ?), Raga (38) and Fajardo (35) are nearing the end in the next few seasons as well. Pretty bleak outlook for the sport at it's highest level, and don't see many Trial2 riders wanting to make the step up. What are the issues / reasons? Cost - harder to get sponsorship and funding? governing body? Rules? Manufacturer support? All of these? Think Dibs was expected as he'd hinted at it a couple of years back, but Price was possibly a bit of a surprise to most. Do riders now attempt to crack the elite for a few years, earn some money then have to call it a day if they realise they will not crack the top 5 Is there even a 'fix' for Trial GP? IMO keep trying to stifle the development of the bikes and riders via the rules does not / has not helped
