A lot of top level road (and off-road) racers will train on a trials bike because not only does it carry slightly less risk with its slower speeds, but the feel you gain of what and why the bike is doing beneath you — you can’t sit down and relax, remember — as well as improving balance and control while refining your basic skills, is second to none.
