NATC results: Rhode Island, Rounds 3 & 4

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…

NATC news via the trials RSS feed on Shan’s blog

On the lower right sidebar of the TTC’s website, we’re aggregating the trials-related headlines from Shan Moore’s blog on Trials and Enduro News. (If you use an RSS/news reader, eg, Google Reader, you can do that yourself using this RSS feed.)

A glance at those blog post headlines this week tells you that Shan has three posts from Rounds 1 and 2 of the AMA/NATC National Trials Series held last weekend in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.  The results may surprise you, as might some of the details.

Shan Moore joins the blogosphere

Back in December, I blogged the print and online developments with Trials and Enduro News (formerly Trials Comp).

Since then, webmaster Darrell Shannon (right photo above) converted their site over to WordPress and two weeks ago, Publisher & Editor Shan Moore launched his ShanBlog. (Photos of Shan are from my April, 2008 blog post during the Wagner Cup, USGP at the TTC. I’m sure he’s aged considerably since then.)

An excerpt from ShanBlog post #1:

Because of my background with CN, I have always been reluctant to do a blog because that kind of writing was what I would call off the cuff… something that I’m not good at. I was worried I was too "up-tight" to do a blog, and too worried about making mistakes or saying the wrong thing. Well, I’ve been reading a lot of blogs lately, and I’ve decided no one else worries about those things so why should I.

Also, I have been so tied up with all the events I’ve been covering lately (I’m on the road every weekend covering something… as a freelancer, if you’re not on the road covering something, then your not making money) that I have been hard pressed to find the time. However, I am starting to get a handle on the workload, in addition to getting the hang of putting together 40-something pages of T&E News, so I plan of giving you "off the cuff" updates from all the events I go from here on out.

Welcome to the blogosphere, Shan.

Trials Comp is now Trials and Enduro News with a new website and a social network


TEButtonTrials Competition Newspaper (Trials Comp) has morphed into Trials and Enduro News with the November 2009 issue. Editor Shan Moore gives the rationale with a full page letter in the new issue.

The paper has doubled in size (to 52 pages) and the trials-related news and features that we’ve come to expect are all there. And in addition to a revamped web site, they’ve also launched a Trials and Enduro News social network on the Ning platform. It’s like Facebook but for the trials and enduro crowd only.
