I'm a multi national, and most of the wars fought of any significance were fought before I was born, so I don't have a lot to work out for myself.

Also remember that the standard rules in Japan are not the same as FIM and there is a good chance that even if they got FIM training the habit would be to score with at least an edge of typical Japanese scoring.  And they wouldn't even be doing it on purpose.

"wars of any significance " suggests you have not worked anything out for yourself ......

Make a note on the sheet next to the riders number, then inform the C-of-C or anyone running the trial! 

I do this and it's brought up unfortunately too regularly at riders briefings.

I’m torn between 1 and 5 on the first video. I’m not familiar with FIM marking guidelines (somewhat irrelevant in my world) so I would follow the observers briefing if it was my call. I can’t see how the second one can be anything but a 5.

Here we go: first post on the forum, and I'm gonna get loads of crap for it ... anyway: I'm absolutely new to the sport but I was wondering:

Doesn't trials have like some sort of honor system (like golf) ? or is it truly like somebody mentioned: just trying to get away with stuff ?

Anyway: just curious ...

When you ride for the venues owner there is no honour system, the rules don't apply the same as they would for a lower ranked rider

100%. Most trials riders will go to the ends of the earth to dishonestly convince the observer that it was a clean. Once i rode a trial that they couldn't get enough observers so they left punches at the end cards for riders to mark themselves. There was so many riders on clean at the end it was ridiculous!

That would be an enormous step forward for the sport. Trials has been described as how much cheating you can get away with. Sad really.

To be fair to riders it's down to the observer to do the scoring, this isn't Bous fault at all.

However every Sunday at every trial someone kicks a rock while their mate talks to the observer, someone moves a flag , someone goes way beyond the reasonable limits of the section effectively challenging the observer to five them.

In the spirit of fair play if he knowingly had a dab, or even the five, should he not have corrected the observer?? Regardless of whether he wins by 15, 19 or 20 marks.

Well ... I guess that explains it ... I know for sure I wouldn't feel good at all getting away with a dab or any other infraction I'm aware of ... but then again: I will never be competing at the same level as these guys (and the accompanying high stakes) ...

I'll be the fair play guy to start a trend :-)
