The first season of the UK Street and Trials League is here to replace the national competitions at BUC and the tour kicks off in the nations capital, London on Saturday, June 2nd.
Unlike the conventional competitions at global Unicycling events, the courses for both Street and Trials will not be fabricated or designed by judges or even riders themselves, the courses will be pure urban obstacles, untouched by organisers, untamed by unions, as raw as the local council intended. Surely this is Street and Trials at it’s purest? The tour then stops off in 4 more cities:
Newcastle 7th July
Bristol 11th August
Birmingham 22nd September
Milton Keynes 3rd November
The competitions will take place over one day, will be self judged and will abide by IUF guidelines. Each rider will be given points reflecting the position they finish in each event, the rider finishing highest getting the maximum points and the rider finishing lowest, the minimum. At the end of the tour, the rider with the highest score will win the UUU trophy for their respective discipline and be crowned UK Champion.
This is a chance to not only improve your riding, compete with the best in the country and hit some spots in cities you’re never been too, it’s also a chance to meet up with riders and socialise on a monthly basis. Don’t worry if you take your riding less seriously than others, have a relaxed ride, have fun and make new friends. The Street and Trials League is by riders, for riders.
Feel free to print the flyer out and pass it around, we need all the help we can get!
Bump! The first stop on the UK tour is in London this weekend coming (2nd June). Its the Jubilee bank holiday weekend, so make it memorable by attending what will probably be the biggest London ride to date.
Organise one! Its much easier than organising an event. You don’t have to worry about venues or anything like that. Set a time and place and see who turns up
Yep, editing the video together this week. Hopefully it’ll be ready for early next week.
Heres the video from the London event.
If you have been thinking about coming along, hopefully this vid will demonstrate the mix of skill levels involved. You don’t have to be an amazing street or trials rider, everyone got involved and had fun
