A big time was had by all last weekend at TTC, with 80 riders each of the 2 days attending from Minnesota to Florida. Saturday had all the flavor of a national, with Bruce LeRiche and Chris Florin doing battle for top honors on some tough champ lines, Bruce came on top 26 to 40. Also competing were Diego Ordonez, 16 yr old top rider from Guatemala and Will Ibsen our national Youth Champ, both of whom had a hard day. Both were over 100 pts but smiling as these kids enjoy being challenged and competing! Sunday was an easy win for Chris as Bruce fulfilled his STRA observer duty. Besides Diego & Will, there were lots more good young riders in the 15-16 ages including Alex Bedley (rode champ on Sunday), Cody Manning (Expert winner Sunday), Nathan Glinski (Expert podium), Ronnie Commo, and Matt Cullum (Expert podium).
Sunday included a long killer loop in the TTC tradition, which was ridden by several youngsters (including several 7, 8, and 9 year olds) on 50cc to 80cc trials bikes. So whining about the long tough loop from grownups GETS NO SYMPATHY!
Look out America, there’s lots of young talent on the boil!
Full results will be up in a few days on the STRA website
