TTC Youth Camp/Youth Nationals veterans: ‘Young Guns’ DVD stars Andrew Oldar and Eric Storz

Andrew Oldar, 2005 Eric Storz, 2005 Looking at the Youth Nationals results as far back as 2005 (photo album here) you’ll see several names of riders who are now competing at highest levels of motorcycle trials in the US.

Among them: left, Andrew Oldar and right, Eric Storz, now the stars of the Young Guns DVD available from Ryan Young Products. The catalog blurb reads:

Young Guns DVD Watch in dismay as the young teens, Andrew Oldar and Eric Storz, known as the YOUNG GUNS, thrill you with their uncanny riding ability as they hone their riding skills on their way to becoming two of the top PRO riders in the sport of Observed Trials.

Both these riders have already won Championships in their young careers but now they have their sights set on the big time. Filmed all around the USA, you will see not only these two outstanding riders, but also many of the top riders in Trials today. Watch them as they ride up huge walls and perfect their splatter technique on huge obstacles. Included in the Bonus Footage is the 2008 USA Indoor national, 2008 Tennessee FIM World round, and much more.

See Andrew’s and Eric’s recent YouTube videos below.

And register now for the 2010 Family Youth Camp, the Youth Nationals (east), and the U.S. Women’s Open Championship.

The video shows 3 attempts by the student (he almost makes it on the 3rd attempt), and two demonstrations by Ray.

We have another video of Ray demonstrating riding over these logs in the How to Ride Trials section of our site. It’s titled, Using the Skidpan
