NATC Rounds 3 & 4 were held in Rhode Island last weekend. See the NATC Results page for the scores of all the classes.

And see Shan Moore’s post to the Trials and Enduro News blog: Webb and Smage Trade Wins in Rhode Island

Cody Webb and Patrick Smage remain tied atop the championship points standings in the AMA National Trials Series after trading wins at rounds three and four of the series in Exeter, Rhode Island.

Just as he had done at the opener in Oklahoma, Webb struck first, taking a decisive win over Smage on the slippery rock outcroppings of Stepping Stone Ranch during Saturday’s round. The two riders riders – Webb on the Gas Gas Race model and Smage on a modified 300cc Sherco…

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 in an STRA blog post by David Ige titled Spring Splash Results & Writeup, Drew Leviton has this write-up:

STRA Spring Splash results blog post Saturday morning dawned ominously dark and cloudy with the foreboding of forecast rain. Were the riders in for a repeat of last year? Thankfully, no, and the weather improved slowly and steadily throughout the day as the temperature and competition heated up.

The sections were on a shortish loop with many new areas freshly cleared and set for the first time. The sections were reasonable enough on Saturday as evidenced by some very low scores, but on Sunday, there was payback, as the difficulty level was a quantum leap higher, and so were the scores… continued
