A big thanks to the STRA and all the U.S. Trials clubs who helped out with the Trial World Championship Wagner Cup this year. And a special thanks to Charlie, Catherine, Bruce, David, the Brown girls and all the TTC staff who worked so hard to help us host a very successful event, as well as our annual Youth Nationals and U.S. Women’s Open every summer. Our efforts have been recognized at the recent AMA Awards Banquet in Las Vegas with the Organizer of the Year Award.
Thanks to all, this recognition is very rewarding!
Now this is the way a trials rider’s den should look! Thanks to Brad Baumert for the loan of the immaculately restored Bultaco Sherpa T on display in the TTC lodge. And thanks also to Les Mizell for his handiwork on the bike stand. This was fabricated from one of the logs cut off the property and sawed up using neighbor Steve Dapp’s band mill.
We had 18 women attend the FIM Women’s Trials Camp over the Thanksgiving Weekend, with instruction by World Champ Laia Sanz and the U.S. Women’s TDN Team Louise Forsley (U.S. Champ) and Sara Duke. The weather was fantastic, the riding was great, and we capped it all off with a big fiesta and dinner (Happy Birthday Catherine) at the local Mexican restaurant. I hope we can do it again next year!
p.s., Laia is keen to visit the U.S. next season and ride 1 or 2 rounds of the U.S. Nationals, so stay tuned!
