Greetings Riders,

Friday is officially here! Before your own Trials Rising journeys starts, he’s a selection of some of our favorite creations from the community. Check out this week’s picks below!



Track: Overhangs
Creator: FatShadyLive
Mode: Trials
Difficulty: Extreme

The tutorial guy, FatShadyLive, lamented not putting an overhang tutorial in the game so he went ahead and made one for Track Central. I really struggle on these types of obstacles so I’m grateful he’s taken the time to make this mini supplemental lesson. It may not be much to look at compared to the official tutorials but it does have Shady’s Easter Egg House (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhOPC07koOs) in the background. The goal here isn’t to make something beautiful anyway, it’s to practice and improve an important Trials skill. Shady built the track as part of his ongoing charity efforts (https://ruokincelebration.everydayhero.com/au/university-of-trials) in support of suicide prevention charity R U OK, thanks to a generous donation from Trials player Twinfire_98. This all went down live on his University of Trials (https://www.twitch.tv/unioftrials) stream. Check out the VOD (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwyT2yFrJIM) of this build and be sure to drop by Shady’s stream and cheer him on. And if you are feeling generous, maybe contribute a little to a good cause.


Track: SX Hells Gate
Creator: chadwickdesign
Mode: Trials
Difficulty: Ninja

Shogun picked a ninja!? Yes I just referred to myself in the third person and yes I did indeed select a ninja track as one of my picks this week. This however isn’t slam your face against the wall difficulty though. Without a few obstacles that require some ninja techniques to pass this could probably be labeled as extreme. That makes it a great entry level ninja track for players with ninja ambition looking for something that’s not too brutal to get started. This isn’t just a nice track for newbie ninjas, it also looks great, making excellent use of the underworld theme. This track is part of an ongoing community track building challenge so if rock hard tracks with a hellish theme are your kind of thing be sure to search that SX tag for some more creations from some very skilled builders.



Track: Tranquillity
Creator: Mattyb2001uk
Mode: Trials
Difficulty: Medium

Tranquillity is a nice medium difficulty trek through a relaxing natural setting. Don’t let the surroundings fool you into complacency though, this track also has some fun, challenging timesavers to keep you on your toes. You’ll want to give it “just one more run” again and again, to save a few more milliseconds off your leaderboard time.


Track: MRF – On the Edge
Creator: morfyboy
Mode: Trials
Difficulty: Medium

On the Edge is a fun high speed track set within a city. Throughout level you’ll be jumping over waterways and rooftops. There’s a lot neat little things happening in this track and once you’ve completed it, you’ll be able to see things closer up. Check it out!



Shirt: Obey Anba
Creator: elCamsterino

This Shepard Fairey inspired shirt is incredibly fun. It brought a smile to my face and style to my rider.


Video: Trials Rising Community Timesaver Montage (https://youtu.be/XvCky4ZVG4o)
Creator: PandaNextDoor but featuring several members of the community

This video not only gives some great tips and tricks for shaving off time, but Is incredibly satisfying to watch at the same time. The day I saw this posted was a bit of a stressful day, and watching these clean drives melted it all way like so much butter in a hot pan.

That’s about wraps things up for this week. It’s time sit back and enjoy that precious weekend time, and load up a game of Trials Rising. If you reckon we’ve missed something out, let us know in the thread below!
