I am Marios Polychroniadis, known as Marios Pol. and I am Urban Freestyle Trial-X Rider since 2007. The last 4 years I am focused on making my own video productions, doing trial all over Greece. The entire trial world knows me through my special videos and my love for freestyle trial.
I love organizing shows and trial events, with famous trial riders and participating with them. My goal is to make people interested to trial and understand how incredible and special this sport is. I want to travel all around Greece and make videos with different concepts showing all the beauties of my country and promoting with this way Trial-X.
Trial-X is my passion and when I ride my bike I feel alive. It makes me wanna set new goals and makes my craziest dreams come true.
- 2009: I organized in collaboration with Red Bull (in Mall Athens) a trial show and participated with Julien Dupont.
- 2010: I was qualified as one of the best 10 trial riders in Gorcia Park of Southern France, conducted by Red Bull France

- 2011: I participated to Red Bull Donkey Cross, in Makrinitsa
- 2013: I participated to the Red Bull’s video on Milos island with Julien Dupont

I am looking to accomplish all my future goals that I have set. I train almost every day to become stronger and better rider.
I would like to participate in some world trial championships but my main goal is to make many video productions doing trial all over Greece, because freestyle trial is my passion.
My greatest achievement would be to participate to something big and become instigator for younger riders and bring about their horizons.
I think that a big difficulty is that many times I have to fight with my mind and with the sense of fear. But so is the game: I have to surpass my limits and overcome all the obstacles. So the greatest difficulties can be at the same time the greatest pleasure.
Trial means you can ‘try all’. Every obstacle is a different trial and the feeling of riding whenever and wherever I want, converting my town and the places I visit to trial sections· is incomparable and unique. I love doing freely what I adore most.
When I train alone, I usually find places close to my home. The good thing with trial is that you can practice everywhere and anytime, so I always find a good spot for practicing new freestyle tricks.
The key of success is to be focused and know your limits. This is generally my way of thinking. Every time I practice I enjoy the moment and I try to have a good time, because good psychology is the key.
Being nervous and having bad mood is something that never helps in trial. A trial rider must be all the time focused and really calm.
My biggest fan is definitely my wife. First of all she is the person who is behind my videos and doing my photo shootings and she always helps me making my new ideas come true.
Someone gave me once the priciest advice: ‘’To proceed in your life you should socialize with people who you‘ll learn from them and will give you only positive things and not to people who are trying to keep you down.’’
For the next years I have scheduled some trips for making new video productions.
Also I would like to take part in some commercials and showing that Trial is not a common motorsport. Finally one of my plans is to act as a stunt performer in a movie.
