    Hand & Foot

    Strangely, in observed trials it's not a dab.

    http://biketrials.com/intro/rules.shtml
    Events are conducted over an obstacle course including such natural or man-made hazards as mud, rocks, water, logs, walls, pallets, spools, etc. and can have any number of sections. The riders attempt to negotiate each section without putting down a foot or hand (dab). Each dab (foot or hand) adds a point to the rider's score. The rider with the lowest total score wins the event.

    Excuse me. From your own source:

    "Dab - Any contact which provides support for the rider (other than pedal or skid plate)."

    Both very good observations, however, I did not "support" myself against the tree . If memory serves, which it does , I merely "brushed" the tree.

    Carry on.

    In which case, you'll not only get docked for the dab, but also, cited for having "brushed" a tree without completing the necessary environmental analysis in advance.

    Don't buy it... you were TOTALLY supported by that tree. Note the position of the hips and lean angle... Can't fool us!!!

    I've been giving this some careful thought for several days now. Seems to me the words "brushed" and dab are interchangable in this instance. Sorry B, I gotta vote for dab. ( err brush.)
