When will it end ??

Recommended Posts

There has always been satellite teams, to a greater or lesser extent going back to the "yellow submarine" british effort in the naughties. They come and go I guess.

Billy green has got a scorpa deal, not sure about dunlop tyres.

I think Moret was part of the deal RG had with the Mont/honda thing.

I didnt realise RG trial had decided to leave the sport,  they were helping Billy Green, Frances Moret and Gabriel Marcelli. So where are these three going this year ?

Maybe need an 80cc class next to get to 50 entries.....

Or make the whole thing electric in 2022 . Bikes not as capable so severity will have to reduce and we would be ahead of other sports from an environmental point of view?

You have a point but I suspect it may be hard to convince an environmentalist of the benefit of an electric bike when it is being transported round the world in a van twice the size of the typical house we would provide for the elderly.  Balanced against a handful of litres used in a petrol bike at an event there would be little demonstrable benefit.

Electric bikes are a nonsense from environmental grounds, just as electric cars are.  The "benefit" is less exhaust fumes, which is great in cities but irrelevant in a rural setting.  The point about what is used to transport the bike is also correct.  I am not at all sure they are not so capable either.  The cycle parts are the  same and the motive power is different, not less.

X-Trial is very popular in other countries so perhaps the problem is not trials as such it is the way it is promoted and seen in the UK.  Mud, wet, cold, rain and old men are not the basis of a popular sport.
