10 Skill Levels

I was reading through the 10 skill levels today, when suddenly I thought: Why are there only skill levels for freestyle skills? What about MUni/Trials or street?
Someone ought to make a 10 skill levels for MUni and Trials and Street. Who's with me??

That would be pretty cool. Intead of demonstarting x amount of mounts you could demonstrate x ft. drops per level. Maybe throw some frestyle in there too.

I'm afraid I would never get to level 10 because I would break both ankles on level 8's eight foot drop.

If you think about it a ten foot drop wouldnt be that hard to learn comparitively to the IUF levels. Under level ten it has to have backflip off of a drop. I can almost backflip on my 20" on my trampoline and am planning to find a nice 6 foot drop to try it off of, its actually a goal for me this year. Unfortunately i still have trouble getting the uni all the way around and under but im sure in a few months ill be able to do it on the tramp, some of you guys could do it(unicycleboy of course!) im sure.

What would the Muni skills be like? Ride X feet on an X class trail?

We're working on it!

The new Skills System will be much broader than the existing 10-level system and will include a division for trials-type skills.

Sounds good, shame that to involve muni in there would be awkward.

30" sidehops or rolling hops for U6 seems a bit tame. I can double that and I suck.

The rest of it looks pretty cool, I wish there were some comps round here... I bet the trophies would look cool.

That's 30 inches, not centimeters. 30 inches = 76.2 centimeters.
I seriously doubt you can double that.

haha, no I wasn't confused by the inches/centimetres thing. It was the unspecified horizontal/vertical thing that got me.
