Britain's Jack Carthy takes the win of the UCI Trials Cup 2014

A very successful year at the UCI World events with lots of medals coming back to the UK, many congratulations to all taking part.

The Biketrial Federation UK has appointed Barry Gawthorpe as their UCI Representative, working alongside British Cycling to gain the best benefits possible for our British riders and for the organisation and management of the entries. He will not be processing your entries, they will go through the normal British Cycling channels, but he will be available to manage any difficulties you may experience and to confirm team entries.

Do check out the UCI Rules as some changes have been made this year, including 2 minute sections instead of 2½ minutes!

If we hear of anything new to add, we'll do our best to post it up here, and don't forget to check out the UCI's own website for information.

Good luck to everyone taking part in 2015.


All entries to the UCI World Trials Events are managed by British Cycling. Applicants must apply for entry to all World events through them on the correct entry forms and by the deadline. UCI do apply a fine for any late entries, so if you want to go, do it in plenty of time.
