We have seen a big increase this year in the beginner class.
99% of the beginner riders are less than 10 years old and on a OSET bike. It appears the sections have become too difficult for the young riders.
This being said, the SC (Steering Committee) has decided to try a few things to encourage new young riders;
- We will have 4 beginners only sections set near the pits.
- These sections will be set by the parents of the beginners along with the course marshals. The course marshals have a little down time while they wait for the other sections to get lined out.
- The beginner sections will be set from 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M.
- The beginners will start their competition, riding the 4 sections, 3 times at 9:30 A.M. and finish up at 10:30 A.M.
The beginner sections will be set to teach the riders to control the bike, stay within specific set of ribbons and no big ups or downs.
Hope to see you all the the Emery meet on April 22nd. Come early to help set sections and support your Trials Club
