What is “Classic Trials”?

  1. Love the virtual tour. Be nice with a few more action vids. Is the one on there typical of one of the trials obstacles? If I enter I won’t be attempting to ride the wire drums! (Yes I do realise that they are probably a permanent fixture for the bouncy/jumpy/skilled/young brigade)!

  2. Your wish is our command 🙂

  3. I wouldn’t worry about the trials. It’s as easy as falling off a log.
