Cade (age 7) rides his Oset in his first trails comp. He loved it and did great, with one fall and no foot dabs.
The youth event was especially encouraging to new kid riders, allowing kids on striders, bicycles, regular dirt bikes and Osets to try and ride the sections. The main objective was to get the riders to understand how to ride a tight corner by scouting out a good line that would take them as wide as possible.
After the youth event we hiked up to the main course and were inspired by some great talent on vintage bikes.
At the end of the film, our friend Olivia Francis rides flawlessly in her third section ever! This was her first time at a trials comp too, with barely any experience on the borrowed bike.
August 16, 2014 at Boreal Ski Area, hosted by the Sacramento PITS. This is a great club, very welcoming and full of helpful advice. We enjoyed that the event was super mellow and family oriented. We hope to enter some more trials competitions soon!
