Hi, I'm Tom Trantow - Trials Enthusiast. I started documenting my journey in trials as a way to help others. The feedback I got from the trials community helped me realize the service I could provide by going into more detail with my successes and even failures.
For anyone who loves learning and growing in their trials skills and wants to dive deeper - You are my people.
Maybe you are like me.
When I 1st got my trials bike, all I wanted to do was go ride. I felt like a kid again. I remember trying to wheelie until my forearm pump was too much to continue riding. All I wanted to do was get better. I had lots of ambition, but little direction. I would watch YouTube videos and go out and try over and over again to do techniques that were well outside of my ability. I got frustrated and doubled down on my learning. I studied professionals in their moves. I took a Ryan Young Class, attended Trials Training Days at the Trials Training Center and had an online Coach - Neil Price. I knew there had to be way to train that would produce the internalized results where things would start to be "easy" like it appeared for all those pros.
Being a former College Volleyball player and coach, I decided to figure out what each part of my body was supposed to be doing. If I could break down just what the throttle hand was doing and drill it again and again. I knew that I could then add in the clutch. I began putting together little drills that would allow these movements, with each of my extremities, to become muscle memory. Then my mind was freed up to focus on the next part of the move. All this layering in of the foundational elements produced a quick learning curve. Things got easier faster. My confidence grew and my skills progressed quickly. I started sharing all these different drills and it appeared that the community wanted more skills breakdowns as well.
