Welcome to BIU BikeTrial in the United Kingdom
Congratulations to Robin Morewood becoming the BIU Delegate for the UK. Robin's task will involve many issues relating to the BIU, International and European, such as issuing licences, advertising BIU events both at home and abroad, and monitoring the British Team entries to international events, as well as running BIU British BikeTrial Championship events with the full support and co-operation of the Biketrial Federation.
The Biketrial Federation has officially received permission from the BIU to use the official logo, and to promote the BikeTrial sport (which is totally different to the British Trials events). Check out the rules on the right!
For any up to date information about BIU events, Robin will arrange to keep you updated below on this webpage.

European Cup round 3 Sonico - Italy (5th July)

The final round of the European Cup was held in Sonico, northern Italy on the 5th July. It was a superb event with excellent organisation. The trial itself was held on a 2km steep hillside course with the majority in the shade from the 35 degree heat. The sections were tough but the UK riders coped well.

Josh McParland won the Poussin class on 11 marks and with it took the European Cup title which is his first ever international title. In the Benjamon class Sam Shepherd took a very close 3rd place and finished 3rd overall. Adam Morewood made it 3 from 3 by winning the Minime class and with it his 3rd European Cup title.

All three riders will be competing for Biketrial UK at the upcoming World Championships in just over a weeks time.


British BIU BikeTrial Championship 2015 (21st June)

The first British BIU BikeTrial Championship competition in the UK for many years took place this summer at Bracken Rocks in Derbyshire. A little different to the British Trials Cup/Championship series, it was run to BIU classes and BIU observing rules, with a couple of Non Championship Classes for riders to have a go out of class.

It was an excellent day with eight really good sections set out for all classes. Nearly everyone rode in their age-group class and this seemed to work well for most, with just a couple of riders out of class.

Well done to Robin and his team of helpers, thank you to all.
