What a great weekend! I know a lot of you were wanting a copy of the results from the STRA Mototrials Event at the Chert Pit in Ringgold, GA. It good to see so many of you there honoring the memory of Mark Moon! Alex Niederer won both day in the Champ/Pro class. Kris Gilreath took away the win on Day 2, riding with Mark’s number on his bike.
Gary Holbert, Alex Niederer, and Tom McNeal were the overall top riders for the weekend (pictured below).
What a perfect end to a wonderful weekend. Hope everyone makes it home safely!

The Cherokee Cup is going to be a multi-section, long loop single line trial (similar to the UTE Cup).
There will be multiple classes offered: vintage, twin shock, clubman, women’s clubman, support, women’s support, expert, and pro. There will be several teams (all of which are 3 person teams): clubs, state, motorcycle brand, women. We’ll also have sponsored teams: (ie) GG, Sherco, Beta, Scorpa, Montesa, Ossa.
Come show everyone how your club/state/brand lines up against the rest!
With saddened hearts, we said farewell to the nicest, most amazing and inspirational man we’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. What a beautiful service. Mark Moonhad to have been smiling down on “Team Moon” from heaven. Rest in peace, dear friend.
The service for Mark Moon was a beautiful one! Many of Mark’s friends and loved ones were in attendance. There were many Southeastern Trials Riders Association members present. Among those were STRA Vice President – Charlie Roberts, STRA Secretary Treasurer – Darrell Davis, STRA Youth Director – Tripp Almon, STRA Competition Director – Griff Shirley, and many STRA Members including: Randy Sharp, Reggie Winkle, Kris Gilbreath, Tim Cash, Sonny Roberts and Sam McNair all of which were either pallbearers or honorary pallbearers.
Mark Moon was such an inspiration to all who knew him and will be greatly missed!
