Central Bristol TRF (CBTRF) is pleased to announce that it will be holding six training days in 2019.
These days will be aimed at riders from beginners to clubman level. The training days will be held on a Saturday just outside of Bristol, with a maximum number of 10 trainees per session.
The training will focus on the following elements, which are the basis of all trials and enduro skills:
- bike handle bar set up
- lever positioning
- general bike setup
- riding positions
- weighting the pegs
- balance tips
- throttle control
- clutch control
- gear selection
- pivot turns
- riding techniques
- race strategy
- don’t be a revving Rodney
- tips and advice on run leading
- ride out etiquette whilst out on green roads
At the start of the day, a 30 minute observation and practical assessment of all riders on a simple circuit will be undertaken by our resident ACU Provisional Coach, Dean Allen, resulting in a mutually agreed training plan. This will be speciﬁcally tailored to the individual’s level, abilities, and requirements.
Dean will demonstrate, with support from his assistant, riding tasks and techniques for riders to emulate, this will involve a series of bike skills leading to a ﬁnal goal for the day .
The venue is a farm located near the South side of Bristol, with good road links from the M5 and benefits from hard standing for vehicles. There are a number of hotels, and Bed and Breakfasts within a short distance of the venue. The site offers a variety of natural terrain including: undulating open landscape; a small wooded area ; and rocky and hilly areas. This has enabled us to set up: woody trials sections; a series of progressively steeper hill climbs; a rock and hill area for more technical bike skills; a series of logs from small to large to suit all skill levels; and a laid out MX/Enduro track which includes lots of corners and some open going.
