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.
The Nov. issue of Trials and Enduro News reports that Louise Forsley has signed with Sherco USA for 2011 and will compete in the AMA/NATC championship series. Louise was the Women’s National Trials Champion from 2006-09. She took the year off in 2010.
You’ll see their names at the top levels of the NATC year-end results for 2009. Likewise, these 2009 nationally-ranked riders were there that week (alas, no 2005 photos): Karl Davis Jr., Chase Harker, Louise Forsley.
The U.S. Trial des Nations men’s team of Cody Webb, Will Ibsen, Keith Wineland and Pat Smage finished 5th this past weekend in Darfo Boario Terme, Italy. This is the best finish ever for a U.S. team since we joined the ‘A’ class in 2006.
The women’s team of Caroline Allen and Sarah Duke finished 8th. Louise Forsley was unable to compete for reasons that are not yet clear.
