Shimano Singletrack Classic Weekender – The Trials Video

by 7

If the word ‘trials’ conjures up images of Danny MacAskill pulling backflips off trees and riding incredibly narrow railings with massive drops to the side, then you shouldn’t let the ‘trials’ element of the Shimano Singletrack Classic Weekender put you off entering.

Benji, Charlotte and Jon headed up to Lee Quarry to show you what it will all be about….

The Singletrack Classic Weekender takes racing back to the old school, combining a downhill race, trials competition and a cross country race all on the same weekend – and all on the same bike.

It’s not all about the racing though – the main aim is to have a fun weekend with like minded people. To that end we’ve got demo bikes, evening entertainment, communal camping and much more.

It’s all happening on the 9-10th July, Lee Quarry, Lancashire so get your..

  1. balance beams being built in the garden this weekend to practise on 🙂

  2. That Benji is one sick rider 😯

  3. Thanks for the video – have to admit it’s the thought of the trials and DH sections that had been putting me off (the xc I know I’d get thrashed on, but not maimed or overly humiliated!)… this looks great!

  4. Yep, it’s more an obstacle course than a trials course. Any rider should be able to do all the sections OK. It’s doing them all under pressure that’s the hard part 🙂

  5. Trackstanding for 10 secs under pressure! Arghh 🙂

  6. I do some great track stands at traffic lights. I bet I can’t do them here tho’

  7. Went up last week the hill climb is currently full of loose rocks, lots harder than usual! Fail
    and I fell off the biggest balance beam. Fail
    Trackstand should be interesting.
    Can I suggest pump track next year? 3 laps no pedalling? 🙂
