Red Bull Trial Bike Demo & Clinic by Syarul Nizam Shariff on 14.11.09 is another program that has been put in the media list in conjunction of GPS (Gopeng Peanut Search) on 15th November.

Mountain bike trials, also known as observed trials is a discipline of mountain biking in which the rider attempts to pass through an obstacle course without setting foot to ground. Derived from motorcycle trials, it originated in Spain and is said to have been invented by the father of Ot Pi, a world champion motorcycle trials rider. Pi’s father had wanted his son to learn motorcycle trials by practicing on an ordinary push bike.

Other than Trial bike activity, all the media gain some experience in Earth Camp, WhiteWater Rafting & Mountain School.

Boy in the action.

Trials riding is an extreme test of bicycle handling skills, over all kinds of obstacles, both natural and man-made.
Skills taken from trials riding can be used practically on any bicycle for balance, for example controlled braking and track standing, or balancing on the bike without putting a foot down. Competition trial bikes are characterized by powerful brakes, wide handlebars, lightweight parts, single-speed low gearing, low tyre pressures with a thick rear tire, distinctive frame geometry, and typically a lack of seat.
