oh my god I want these magazines so badly. Back in the day as a child I cut bits out for school projects and my wall. How I regret it now.

I remember studying those Trials Academy pages so much (although I seem to remember they were also released as a stand-alone mag at some point?)
 

Anyone who’s seen me ride knows it didn’t help, maybe I should’ve ridden more than read about it.

Never could get the balls to try to endo pivot off anything higher than a kerb even after studying these for hours!

1999 was such a great year for riding! But then we probably all have happy memories of our earlier years. I definitely see 1998 to 2002 as a kind of golden era.

Yeah that was my kind of time, finished school for exam leave in late spring 99 and spent every single day out riding rather than revising. Didn't really pay off though as I was still shit but having fun :lol:

I've always thought this must have been the best group ride EVER.

All on the 'Contact' video for those who missed it first time round. 

8 mins for UK footage.

This thread always makes me regret throwing away a collection I had from issue 1 (my Dad had started the collection) all the way through to whatever issue it would’ve been in mid 2004. 
 

Got myself into a crap situation accommodation wise and had to make some drastic cuts, that was one of them... Doubt I’d have kept buying them all the way through to now but all those old issues would’ve been handy now!

These old mags make me nostalgic, as does Contact.  I think I was first exposed to trials around 2000, so pretty much the same magic that brought me into the sport twenty years ago.  I was 10 years old back then, so pretty damn young.  Sadly,  I think at 29...I'm the youngest rider I know of stateside.  There's no fresh blood anymore.
