It seems that to make it to the top in trials these days you to have a minder. And with having a minder comes the necessity to learn to communicate clearly. That requires shouting loudly and using the correct phrases. Here’s some I picked up at the recent nationals in Alexandra.
Minder… “I Want a Big One”
“I want it here”
Rider…. “I want you on top Wadsy”
Minder… “Suck it in”
“Hold it back”
“Now make it stick”
It is important to remember not to practice these phrases too far from a trials section. To hear these sorts of things coming from say, your Motel room, could raise a few eyebrows.
Lesser riders may have to start out on some phrases with less impact and work their way up. A good couple to start on might be..
“Give it Fertilizer” or “Too much throttle you Ninken-poop”
