Day 264: Manchester Red Bull City Trial, Junior Rider

Day 264

Walking back through town this afternoon we were surprised to come across a motor bike trials course set up in Exchange Square.  It did make me think of The Beginner Gardener’s husband, who (possibly to put it mildly) is into his bikes.  I found the whole thing quite mesmerising and fun to watch.  As well as the pretty amazing pros they had some juniors giving part of the course a go.  I think the fact that that there is skill in the trickery they were doing, as well as racing, is what did it for me.  I’d certainly watch it again!
