The U.S. men’s team is composed of riders Keith Wineland from Fountain, Colo., Bryan Roper from Glendale, Ariz., Karl Davis Jr. from Ormond Beach, Fla., and Eric Storz from Ventura, Calif., with Andrew Oldar from Aguanga, Calif., as an alternate.
For the U.S. women’s team, the competitors are Louise Forsley from Bernardston, Mass., Sarah Duke from Colorado Springs, Colo., and Caroline Allen from Norton, Mass., along with alternate Rachel Hassler from Albuquerque, N.M.
Andrew Oldar alerted me to a new video he just put together.
It features clips of the some of the best youth trials riders in the USA practicing (and crashing) at the TTC earlier this summer at the invitation-only American Trials Teen Camp. Among those featured:
Karl Davis, Jr. Daniel Blane-Gonnet Seth Gray Chase Harker Nathan Hassler Homer Hensley Andrew Oldar Bryan Roper Josh Roper
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.
