BIU 主席 Hiroshi Hirano
Xbreaker - 平野博先生,给我们介绍一下BIU?
Mr. Hiro: BIU是国际自行车障碍联盟（Biketrial International Union），是针对无引擎自行车障碍运动项目的独立组织，与其他单车项目无关。
Xbreaker - 你在BIU工作了多久？
Mr. Hiro: BIU 是1991年底成立的，1992年开始设立世界锦标赛（WBC)，第一任主席是Josef Dressler Sr.。我从1992年被推选为副主席，并在1993年担任主席职务至今。1992年起，BIU每2年选举一次，我被推选10次，已经工作了18年，我仍将担任主席职务至2012年。担任BIU主席是志愿的，我以经验和创想从事这项我所喜爱的工作。
Xbreaker - 什么是Biketrial？
Mr. Hiro: Biketrial是一种运动，正如世界上所有重要的运动项目一样，有其创始人、创始地和发展历史，我想这对一项运动来说至关重要。拳击和街头斗殴有何不同？拳击因规则而成其为运动项目，斗殴则没有。我们为有创始人和创始地而感到自豪，游戏仅是游戏，不需要这些。我们运动项目的创始人是比尔.皮先生，发源于西班牙，这相当重要。
Xbreaker - Biketrial在世界范围发展得如何?
Mr. Hiro: 我在许多国家推广这项运动，1997年在美国，2006年在新加坡分别设立了世界锦标赛（WBC)。我还希望能够在南美、中东和非洲等地推广该项目运动，目前该项运动在亚洲显得越来越重要，期望明年能继续举办亚太锦标赛（APBC)。
Xbreaker - 那么世界锦标赛呢?
Mr. Hiro: 世界锦标赛（WBC）是BIU的重要赛事。
Xbreaker - 你自己玩障碍单车吗?
Mr. Hiro: 是的，我把它当作自己的爱好，甚至过尤不及，可以说就是我的生活。我在1972年开始摩托障碍运动，并参加了10年的国内锦标赛。然后我转至单车障碍运动，并参加了1987年至1997年的世界锦标赛。我现在还保存着障碍摩托车，有时一个人或和老朋友一起玩，乐趣无穷啊。
Xbreaker - 你认为Biketrial的将来如何?
Mr. Hiro: 可以说这项运动有很多前景和可能，作为一个推广者，这项可塑的新运动可以有多种表现途径。百米短跑是固定项目，就是在平地上跑100米，而障碍单车却可以是比赛项目（如锦标赛）、娱乐节目（如表演，日本的剧院有“muscle musical”节目，去年在拉斯唯加斯也取得成功）或世界纪录比赛（WBR）等多种形式，如我制作的“超级车手”作为电视体育节目的一种，这完全取决于想法。
Xbreaker - 这次中国选手首次到日本参加世界障碍单车锦标赛，你有什么对他们说的？
Mr. Hiro: 多年来我一直期待中国选手参加世界锦标赛，这次是中国队第一次参加世锦赛，希望他们喜欢这项赛事，学到更多并更好地在中国发展。
Xbreaker - 非常感谢平野博先生, 祝你在Biketrial领域取得更多成功。
Mr. Hiro: 不客气，也祝中国的Biketrial好运，我希望不久的将来中国也有世界锦标赛，我会尽力帮助的，这点取决于你。
Interview with BIU President by Xbreaker.com
Just beofore 2007 WBC,Xbreaker.com have an nterview with BIU President Hiroshi Hirano(Hiro as below).
Xbreaker - Mr. Hiro,would you introduce BIU for us?
Mr. Hiro: BIU is Biketrial International Union. It is the independence organization just for our sport “Biketrial”(TRIAL without engine)”, nothing else for other cycle sport.
Xbreaker - How many years have you worked as BIU president?
Mr. Hiro: BIU was established in the end of 1991 and start working for WBC from 1992(The first BIU president was Josef Dressler Sr.). I was the Vice President in 1992 and became the president from 1993. Because of I was selected by the vote in 1992. Since then, we hold election every after 2 years, So, I am doing the President post for 18 years(93-94/95-96/97-98/99-00/01-02/03-04/05-06/07-08/09-10) already. I was selected president 10 times already, and I have to stay the post for 2 years more(till 2012) at least. The President post is completely volunteer thing. I do it with all my experience and ideas for the sport I like most.
Xbreaker - What’s Biketrial and Who practise it?
Mr. Hiro: Biketrial is a sport. There is the originator of our sport, the origin country and a history in our sport. It is like all important sports in the world. I think these things are important for a sport. What is difference between Boxing and Street fight? Boxing has rules as a sport, but Street fight has no rules. We should be proud to having the originator and origin country. A game does not need them or does not have them, because it is just a game. The originator of our sport is Mr. Pere Pi. The origin is Spain. This is important.
Xbreaker - How about the development of Biketrial in the world?
Mr. Hiro: I help the promotion of our sport in many countries. WBC in the USA in 1997, WBC in Singapore in 2006, etc., I hope to help promotion in South America and Mid East and Africa some day. I think this sport in Asia is getting more important. I expect APBC coming back next year.
Xbreaker - And how about the WBC?
Mr. Hiro: WBC is most important event for BIU.
Xbreaker - Do you play BikeTrial yourself?
Mr. Hiro: Yes I enjoyed it as my hobby, or may be more than that. I mean this sport is my life. I stared Trial with Motorcycle in 1972. I have been competing in the national championship for 10 years (Honda/Yamaha/Honda). After that, I changed to Bike and competed in the WBC from 1988 to 1997. I still have a moto (SHERCO) and sometimes I enjoy moto trial alone or with my old friends. It is a lot of fun.
Xbreaker - What do you think about the future of Biketrial?
Mr. Hiro: I can say this sport has a lot future and possibilities. As I am the promoter, this sport can cock in many ways. Because it is a new sport and it is much flexible. Imagine 100 m sprint cannot modify any more because may be it is already complete. It is exact 100 m on exact flat place. Biketrial as a sport (championships), an entertainment event (Demo. In Japan, we have muscle musical in the theater. They got success in Las Vegas show last year. You should watch it) or a record contest (WBR), etc… also TV program like I do in Japan “SPER RIDER” as a sport variety program on TV. It is depend up on how you cook it.
Xbreaker - It’s the first time of China riders coming to Jappan for WBC,would you say something to them?
Mr. Hiro: I have been waited for many years for Chinese team coming to WBC. It will be the first time official team coming and I hope these riders will enjoy WBC and learn many things for the future of China Biketrial.
Xbreaker - Thank you Mr. Hiro, and wish you a lot of successes in BikeTrial.
Mr. Hiro: You are welcome! Good luck for Biketrial in China and I hope to be there some day in the near future for WBC in Chinese Round!!! I am ready to help it. So, It depends on you!
