Motocross Josh Coppins, home after a huge year on the International circuit, was also there as a special guest. Coppins is working on balance rather than speed and the World No.2 has been trying out the Country's first dedicated Motorcycle Trials course near Nelson.
It's been an uphill battle keeping youngsters interested in Trials. Some of them like Motueka's Josh Coppins give it up to pursue Motocross but the World No.2 is still a fan.
But former NZ Trials Champion Stephen Oliver wants youngsters to stay in his sport so he's designed the country's first purpose built Trials course just South of Nelson to try and stop the big drop off.
To help get over that obstacle Oliver's also set up the NonStop Trials Academy enlisting the help of six times NZ Champion Warren Laugesen from Levin.
