Looks pretty rad. I'm tempted to get a copy of the book just to have a copy, really. Those videos look pretty sweet, so it'd be good to see what else goes with it. Pretty cool that Martyn's still putting as much back into trials/MTBing in general considering how much he's done for it before (Y)

I don't really know anything about website stuff, but that site looks pretty cool as a 'normal' person :P There's obviously one or two little things with it, but as an accompaniement for the book it looks pretty cool.

God that website is dire, when is someone gonna make a decent trials website? :(

dire as in it just doesnt work or looks terrible ? or dire in the way it has little information in it ? or just dire ?

Well, I realised after posting that my comment was a little harsh/in-constructive.

The code behind it is poor, but that's me as a web developer looking at it.

The main thing is usability really.

Splash page

Always a bad idea.

Imagine you wanted to go to Tesco and you get to the door and they make you do something before you go in. That's gonna piss you off, maybe not a lot, but it's still an extra unnecessary thing to do to before you get in. A splash page does that. I get to a website and I wanna see it, I don't want to have to click another time before I can get to the content.

The videos page

I have to click back to get to the videos menu to watch a new clip. Why not have a list of thumbnails under the Youtube video that link to all the other videos in that category?

My current user journey is:

Splash page > Home page > Videos page > Category page > Video > Category page > Video

That could easily become:

Home page > Videos page > Category page > Video > Video

Buying the book

There is currently only one link to buy the book, which is sat in with a load of other similarly styled links. Why not have several 'calls to action' on each page? A banner above the Youtube video that says 'Buy now!' and attracts the user, a smaller banner under the links in the right hand column here? A banner just under the foreword copy?

Currently you're only giving users one link to use to spend money with you, put links everywhere, make them stand out, lead the user on a buying journey…

Hope that is more insightful (I won't comment on the code (unless you really want me to…))
