Trials, street, urban assault… Whats that?

Most common mistake associated with trials is misspelling its name. It’s not trails (as in tracks), it’s not trial (as in single attempt), but it’s trials. Trials as in trial and error, trials as in multiple attempts to do something. Official sport name: mountain bike observed trials. It is one of 4 types of mountain biking recognized by the UCI. However, term trials originated in Spain about 25 years ago, and it was originally called ‘trial sin motor’, or trials without a motorcycle, as it was ridden on small 20″ bikes which were originally used as a cheap method of training motorcycle trials riders. Later it evolved into a sport of its own, and went under name of “trialsin” and later “trials”, so there are people who think sport should actually be called “trial” instead of “trials”. I disagree with this, because we’re talking in english, not spanish.
