seeing as I'm relatively new to trials (in comparison to you lot) its really interesting to read through this. i started after i saw an echo on a wall in a bike shop in 2012, actually started riding in mid 2013. if anyone lives in leamington, you'll see me riding everyday (can't follow the maguras, follow the sound of the hope) i get to oxford a lot too, i like it there. a few months ago me and a rider who had just moved here bumped into rob leech and ben roberts, which hadn't happened since 2014! (last time was in cov with kyle and paul) it is sad, because i miss a massive scene, which disappeared right after i started. I've made a close knit group of friends who ride and its much more fun in my opinion than what people my age do for fun, which is usually xbox or summat.... i have goals in trials and i won't stop till i meet them.
