What tyre pressures should a trials bike have?

Front: 0.5bar (50kPa)

Rear: 0.3bar (33kPa)

Naturally, this is average.  If you are riding on sand, mud or low traction surfaces, you can go lower than that.  If you are quite heavy, riding rocks and hard edges, or generally hard (aka a bit clumsy) on a trials bike, increase the pressure slightly to protect the rims.

The weather was pleasant if somewhat warm.  The sections were varied and interesting.  The trial - priceless.

We had 4 juniors on electrics, with some interesting sections set for the juniors.

Nomads Trial Results : Constantia 2018/03

Yet another brilliant trial.  Thanks to Brian Barson for clearing and setting the sections.  The weather was clear, and became a bit warm toward midday.

The turnout was good, with 15 riders starting.  Two DNFs, including myself.  Everyone enjoyed it thoroughly.

Results: KPR Fun Trial at Zonnebloem - Feb 2018

On the 18th of February 2018, we held the KPR Fun Trial at Zonnebloem.

The weather was cool, with a soft breeze, and started overcast but cleared up later.  The piste was dry - perfect trials weather.

The sections had been set all around the lower field, which made for short, quick laps.  There were only 11 riders, and although we took our time on the walk-throughs, we completed the first lap by 12, and the remaining 3 laps by 1pm.
