The Arrowhead Bike Farm located in Fayetteville, West Virginia hosted their first annual Trials and Tracks competition on May 21, 2022. I drove out from Connecticut with one of our local trials riders, Tony, to help with final setup of the sections, to share some of the nuances of running a competition based on (mostly Tony’s) experience in hosting trials competitions, and to vlog the whole thing (that was my primary function). Travis Brown and David Krut organized and ran the event (they also competed!), which included more than just a trials competition – for example, there were slow races, games of “foot down”, and pump track races as well.

The trials competition course consisted of 2 sections for each rider class (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced). The beginners rode each section 3 times; the intermediate and advanced participants rode theirs 2 times due to the number of riders and to stay on schedule with other events and the awards ceremony. The video highlights below include the best attempts at both sections for each of the participating riders in each of the classes, and include the awards highlights for the respective class at the end of each video.

I’ll post additional videos on my YouTube channel as well that cover the overall trip that conveys the entire experience and vibe, not just the trials riding. Keep an eye out for those. I’ll probably post them here as well.

Also, I wanted to give a shout out to ESI Grips, who donated grips via Tony to include in the competition prize packs.
