TISSOT gives away watches

Today at the Universiade Park is TISSOT Day. The Official Partner of the 27th Summer Universiade organised a unique bike show!

Russian champions Timur Ibragimov and Mikhail Sukhanov showed off their skills before the audience at the bike show (bike trials). Various tricks, from simple bike jumps to breathtakingly complex combinations were on display! Visitors to the park saw fantastic command of the bike, balance, and, of course, impeccable technique.

The Official Partner could not leave spectators without gifts, so in between shows they staged contests with the guests of the Park. Valuable presents for all participants were handed out in the form of TISSOT steel watches. They went to the most persevering, fearless and persistent. For the coveted prize, you had to sit on the bike in a stationary position with the feet not touching the ground. Those who managed to stay in that position the longest were given watches of the global brand!

Bike trials are a mountain biking discipline, seeking to overcome various obstacles. The obstacles can be very different, natural or artificial: rocks, logs, boards, etc. The main objective is to overcome them, the athlete doing as much as possible not to touch the ground in the process.
