Your Complete Guide to Trials Riding combines many years of experience and observations into concise and practical tutorials, designed for trials riders and mountain bikers wishing to broaden their skills.

Easier to read on paper
Over 40 techniques and transitions are carefully reviewed, from basic bike manoeuvring to expert-level moves as performed by the pros at UCI competitions, all wrapped up in a full colour paper book for a more comfortable read and a lasting impression.
Each move is decomposed step-by-step with numerous photos and tips that will boost both your confidence and riding ability. It all starts with balance and a few hops on the back wheel, before you start challenging yourself on new lines and obstacles, looking at new ways to push your limits while staying on your bike. Also included in this book are several chapters about the sport's evolution, bike geometry and setup, as well as preparation advice.

Endorsed by the Union Cycliste Internationale, this carefully crafted handbook features numerous photos from top riders competing at UCI's recent Trials World Cups and World Championships.
