Through this site we’ve seen some extraordinary things over the years. We’ve met and got to know the champions, the organisers, the grass-roots riders and the fans from the trials world and it’s always an interesting and enriching ride!
A few months ago we received a message from a trials rider from Iran; Iman Kamali Far sent us the latest street video of his cousin Mohammad. We were amazed to discover a young but active trials scene in Sari, the capital of Mazandaran province, situated to the north of the Elbourz mountain range and on the south coast of the Caspian Sea (The Sari Trial Riders). Iman also told us about the street scene in Tehran, the capital city of Iran, sending us the first video from who he considers to be Iran’s best rider, Mehrshad Aghdai (Street in Tehran). He recently told us that there are now trials competitions taking place in his country, sending us images from the tenth trial to be organised in Tehran… Thanks Iman and keep up the good work!
