Flagging A Section?

Recommended Posts

I ordered some flags from trialendurodirect.com not that long ago....bunch of blue and red ones. Planning to mark out some hill sections in the ravine on the north side of my property.

However, being fairly new to trials riding and never having done a competition, I have no idea which side the red and blue flags go on?

Would rather set 'em out correctly...so can someone point me in the right direction? Red = Right, Blue = Left or vice versa?

Thanks!

You need some green, white, yellow flags, some tape and a few make shift branches on the ground as well to make it really realistic.

Happy practising

if your marking out a section for yourself then you can use what ever colour combo you want.

traditionally it was/is red and blue (right & left) but many place run additional routes and colours (ie down here the red blue thing is an alien concept! we use pairs of the same colour) - but whatever your used ;)

I've moved our club over to white tape so the section can be run backwards if we want. You will be surprized at how different a section is when ridden backwards,

so in effect you get two sections for one set-up.

Don't forget to order a couple of blow up Observers for that added touch of authenticity.

The dumbest thing our club ever did was go to white ribbon. Everytime it snows you can hear my laughter all through the camp. Use a color that works for location. (Not picking on you Jon)

Problem with the youth in Iraq, they blow up so young.

Thanks for the info on red/right, blue/left!

Any "official" usage for other colours (white/green) or is that just done as is on a club level to mark different lines for different classes?

You guys slay me....love the blow up observer, but shouldn't they be more deflated with the FIM adoption of no-stop?

ROTFL

Maybe it is an FIM Oficial and needs to be more puffed up, all full of how important they think they are.
