Well the long weekend starts here - 5.30am and getting sorted to head out the door - hope everybody has a good one. -(Including my better half who is staying home) -  watch for a full report when I get back from the WTC/ATRA Trial.

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Well it’s nice to see the sun shining today, and the forecast is a high of +35 for Monday in the Valley - A very hot Canada Day - Of course I will likely be driving back from Alberta at that time, unless I pull out late Sunday - we will just have to see how the weather is and play it by ear.

The good news is that the Hiway between Canmore & Banff, is now open, which will take a lot of the traffic off the David Thompson ( The route I will be taking to Rocky)

The aftermath of the flooding in Calgary appears to have already caused a CP rail bridge to collapse with a loaded freight train on it near the Bow River - bad news seems to continue to hit Cow Town.


This long weekend will see a lot of action in Motorsports,  with the British Formula One Grand Prix at Silverstone - always a “Biggy” as so many of the teams are based in the area. - Then there is the Moto GP race over in Assen, Holland - a favorite for many riders, including multi time Champ, Valentino Rossi - and of course Yamaha have a huge factory operation nearby.


Today will be spent loading the van with parts and accessories to take to the ATRA Trial at Baseline, - the plan is to head out early tomorrow, but I have no idea what to expect as regards to road conditions etc. - normally the bulk of  the traffic is headed West to BC for the holiday weekend, and I would expect this to be the case again tomorrow, especially for folk wanting to get out of the flood ravaged Calgary area.


We had a call from Mark O’Neill last night to say that he has to work this weekend, so won’t be at the Trial - Naturally he is sick about this as he is a points contender in a couple of classes. - Other absentees at Baseline will be Jake Cook and Adam Hague, who are also on shift work at Fort Mac: - All three should however, be at the Ioco event in a few weeks.

The 2013 MotoGP World Championship suffered a huge blow today when defending World Champion Jorge Lorenzo crashed out of the second free practice session at the Circuit van Drenthe, the Spaniard suffering a broken left collarbone that will keep him out of Saturday’s Grand Prix.

Lorenzo, who came into the Dutch round just seven points behind Dani Pedrosa and riding the wave of two successive victories, crashed in the fastest part of the track after hitting a puddle in a session held in torrential rain. The Yamaha man will spend the night in hospital in the Netherlands before being transferred to Spain where he will undergo surgery on the collarbone on Saturday with high hopes that the operation will get him ready for the German Grand Prix at the tight and twisty Sachsenring in 15 days. The week after the German round is the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, another track where riding with a shoulder injury won’t be easy.

Lorenzo’s crash came with less than 25 minutes to go in the session.

Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez ended up with the fastest time of the wet session, the young Spaniard clocking at 1:47.617 to best Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi. Rossi’s best was a 1:47.869 as those two were the only riders to crack the 1:48 mark in the treacherous conditions.

Championship leader Dani Pedrosa was third with a 1:48.240 the session that began as a sort of revenge of the CRTs. Two of the CRTs led parts of the session with Aleix Espargaro and Jonny Hernandez taking a turn at leading a MotoGP practice.

With 29 minutes to go, that ended when Cal Crutchlow put the Monster Tech 3 Yamaha at the top. That too was short-lived with Marquez taking over soon thereafter. Lorenzo went to second on the timesheets with 26:30 to go in the session and his crash came just a few minutes later.

The Spaniard was up on his feet after his sixth-gear crash and at first it looked as though he’d suffered a wrist injury, but it turns out he was just holding it in an effort to bring some relief to the pain in his shoulder. The ambulance arrived and whisked the defending champion away as the action continued without him.

The session ended with Marquez, Rossi and Pedrosa leading the way. Stefan Bradl rode his LCR Honda to fourth ahead of the first factory Ducati, ridden by Andrea Dovizioso. His teammate Nicky Hayden was next, credited with an identical 1:48.682.

Crutchlow, Danilo Petrucci, Hernandez and Michael Laverty rounded out the top 10.

Free Practice 2

1.              Marc Marquez (Honda) 1:47.617

2.              Valentino Rossi (Yamaha) 1:47.869

3.              Dani Pedrosa (Honda) 1:48.240

It’s hard to believe that we are winding down the last week of June, where does the time go? - Of course this month will be remembered by Albertan’s as the time of the great floods. - It will take months and maybe years to clean-up and rebuild, and as far as I know, the main highway to Calgary is still closed.


We had a short email from Steve Fracy, to say that they are now back home on Vancouver Island, after a long tiring trip  with lots of delays due to the bad weather. - He mentioned that it was a great experience for Matt to compete against the teenagers from the US. - I’m sure Steve will post a full story on Matt’s blog shortly.

This weekend is the final round of the Outlaw Series, which will go at Baseline South of Rocky Mountain House  in Alberta, on Saturday and Sunday. - We’ve heard from Harold Pospisil, that the course is all set up in the usual area, with most sections on the high ridge that leads to the Forestry look-out towers. - There really are some stunning views from up there, we are looking forward to posting lots of pics next week. Anybody wanting more info: on the event can either contact me, or check out the details on the ATRA website.

I will be loading the Outlaw Van tomorrow, ready for an early start on Friday, if you need something specific, please shoot me an email, as it’s hard to remember everything.

I just saw this clip on Cycle News - Certainly a must read for all Off road  Motorcycle enthusiasts.
Malcolm Smith, perhaps the most well-known and accomplished motorcyclist on the planet, is finally telling his story - all of it.

From his childhood in Canada and Southern California, to his first motorcycles and racing exploits, to his legendary ISDT run and the classic documentary On Any Sunday, to his Baja and African rally achievements, to his successful businesses and charity work, and to his family and many friends all over the world, Malcolm! An Autobiography is the story of Malcolm Smith.

“It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally time to do it. The timing seems right, too. I just turned 72, I’m slowing down a little, I’m spending more time with my family, and I’ve got more perspective than ever… So here we go! I’m sure you’ll love reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.”  - Malcolm Smith

This large-format (11×11-inches), 300-plus page, hardbound coffee-table book will feature more than simply Malcolm’s life story. In it you’ll find hundreds of photographs from Malcolm’s private archives, many of which have never been seen by the public, let alone published. For the book, Malcolm teamed up with veteran moto-journalist and racer Mitch Boehm, who’s worked at Motorcyclist, Cycle World and American Honda during his career.

Malcolm! An Autobiography is set to release in December, but you can pre-order your copy now. And if you do, you’ll get a very special bonus: Malcolm Smith will personally sign your copy.

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Yesterday turned out to be a fairly quiet day - We did get more stuff in from Saunders - so we are well stocked with low pressure gauges etc, but both these and the Beta frame guards sell out quickly. - Weather was a mixture of sun & showers, which is supposed to continue through the week.


Later in the day, we had a visit from a nice guy who works as a language translator in Tokyo - He used to ride bicycle Trials many years ago with a couple of the Alberta lads, so he stopped by to check out the new bikes.

As most people know, there is nothing I like better than to chew the fat about our sport, and it’s always interesting to hear other stories. - While chatting about our local scene, I mentioned that in my opinion, the sport of Trials bears more resemblance to Golf, than Moto Cross, - but it seems that many folk want to promote it as a circus act, rather than a battle of wits. - Not that I’m taking anything away from the World Class riders, who leap up impossible looking cliff faces, but I think we need to promote the sport as something anybody can do, or at least try, without breaking their body.


Still nothing on the web-sites from the USA Nationals, but I did notice that Cycle News have a story on Curt Casselli winning a big Rally - beating out the more seasoned campaigners.  - Also it seems that there is another Roberts from the States, bursting onto the road-race scene, with 16 year old Joe Roberts winning both his races last weekend. - No idea if he’s any relation to King Kenny.

We had a great ride yesterday at Bear Creek, Matt was at my place at 8.30, and we headed South to meet up with Barry - It was a warm day, and we were surprised at how overgrown the area was, but also the fact that there was no water or much mud in the gully. - Not sure how much longer we will be able to access this location, as road works are getting close.


Over in Alberta the ATRA lads were out at Baseline setting up things for the Trial next weekend - Harold has posted direction on the ATRA site, and Taff posted a pic of young Carig at the top of the mountain on his Beta 80 - quite a long climb up the gravel road, which is a real challenge, so congrats to Carig and to Graylon Giesbrecht - who also made it up on his Beta 80.  - This will be the 3rd and final round of the Outlaw Series, with the Vintage on Saturday, and the modern on Sunday.


With the Alberta floods filling the headlines, it’s nice to see that Janet Whitby of Calgary is helping out with rescue work for displaced pets, lots of which ended up swimming for their lives.


No results up yet on the NATC website, of the USA Nationals from the weekend, so no idea how Matt Fracy did.


Lots of the usual drivel on Trials Central from critics of the World round in Spain last weekend - but while the scores were high, I can recall similar figures from way back with the old rules. - Diego Bosis won a World Trial held at Ft William, where he was the only rider not over 100 points, and while this type of event can’t be much fun, logging five after five, it’s the job of the organizers to get it right, or change things,  you can’t blame the FIM, or other governing body.


At the other end of the scale, we had the British Ladies event, where Becky Cook only dabbed twice, but finished second !! - Emma went clean for the day, so obviously in this case the event could have been toughened up a tad. - However, the bottom line, is that it’s easy to make sections too hard, it’s getting them right for all classes that takes a  lot of experience.


ACU Womens and Girls Trials Championship

Round 2 Listers Toyota Trial, organised by Zona 1 MCC ..

Emma Bristow extended her series lead despite machine problems early on at the second round of the ACU Womens and Girls trials championship on Sunday.

The MRS Sherco team rider set off at lightning pace to make up around 45 minutes lost at the start thanks to technical gremlins, which struck at exactly the wrong moment.

Despite that, she cleaned all ten of the sections on every lap. It meant reigning ACU ladies champion Becky Cook couldn’t afford to take dabs on laps two and three.

The drama of getting her bike running right seemed to gee up Bristow, who was one of the first finishers too. She was presented with the famous Cotswold Cup, resurrected by Zona 1 MCC and the ACU Western Centre for the event. Bristow was a worthy winner of the cup which has featured most of trials’ great names down the years, starting with Bert Perrigo in 1933.

The top two were some way ahead of the rest but clerk of the course Steve Saunders managed to plot sections for the Listers Toyota Trial that were suitable for all, with Katy Sunter losing only 34, and Jess Bown and Nikita Smith stuck together on 48.

Katy Sunter – Gas Gas

ACU Western Centre Youth Development Squad member Victoria Payne (Top image) was the only Youth A class rider but her score of 30 over half the hardest sections in the trial was a creditable result.

The most competitive class was the intermediate womens, with all putting in single figure scores on the final lap. Catherine Alford won by being the only rider to post single figure marks on every lap.

Louise Alford was never in danger of defeat in the intermediate A Class, likewise Beth Waite in the intermediate B Class.

Alice Minta kept Alicia Robinson and Hannah Moore at bay with a near perfect ride in the C class championship.

Three non championship classes featured, and Gloucestershire riders Trudi Silvey and Izzy Saunders headed the womens and girls classes respectively.

Three men rode the invitational class, and Forest of Dean rider Jake Hoare cleaned all the sections.

Thanks to all observers for their assistance.

Emma  Bristow (Sherco) won the British Ladies Round today, Becky Cook (Beta) finished 2nd  - Tony Bou won a high scoring World Round in Spain - more news later >>>

Bou Wins High Scoring Spanish World Round


bou pob in articleToni Bou – Repsol Montesa is back at the top of the 2013 FIM Trial World Championship standings after he recorded a convincing and dominant win at his home Grand Prix held in Pobladura, Spain. The reigning champion took control of today’s Trial on the first lap and then maintained his supremacy over the closing two laps of twelve sections to take his victory by twenty-six clear marks. Previous series leader Adam Raga – Gas Gas can count himself lucky to have eventually finished as runner-up as he languished down in eighth place after the initial tour. Raga finally demoted his compatriot Albert Cabestany – Sherco into third spot by virtue of a most cleans tie-decider, as once again it was an all-Spanish podium lock out, this time at their home GP.

On a day when the sun shone warmly overhead, the competition amongst the front runners was as hot as ever with Takahisa Fujinami – Repsol Montesa missing out on a rostrum place by just six marks in what was a relatively high scoring event as many of the riders fell foul of the new no-stop rules. Today’s course offering a mixture of dry and dusty hazards plus four sections in a slippery river. Italy’s Matteo Grattarola – Gas Gas showed his liking for the conditions as he recorded his best ever result in fifth position, although someway off the leading pace. Matteo’s previous highest finish being seventh spot in Germany back in 2011. Jeroni Fajardo – Beta was disappointed to find himself down in sixth place and gave his home fans little to cheer about from his point of view.

France’s Loris Gubian – Gas Gas, Daniel Oliveras – Ossa, Jack Challoner – Beta and James Dabill – Beta rounded out the top ten in seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth places respectively. Dabill was another rider like his team-mate Fajardo who failed to shine on the day, after having just missed out on a podium last weekend in Andorra. Bou will take a two point lead in the general standings when battle resumes in Italy in two weeks time, with Raga now playing catch up. Behind the leading duo Fujinami is just about hanging onto third position, but is now tied on points with Cabestany who has had the better of the Japanese rider over recent events.

Maintaining the winning Spanish theme Pol Tarres – Sherco also romped to a convincing win, his success coming in the Junior class, and this being his first victory of the season to date. Tarres’ winning score of twenty-eight marks was some twenty-two marks better than that of runner-up Francesc Moret – Gas Gas. Moret who currently sits third in the championship standings had to resist the challenge of Britain’s Jonathan Richardson – Ossa who produced his best performance of the year with a well deserved third position. With Maxime Warenghien – Sherco in fourth spot, series front-runners Jorge Casales – Gas Gas and Jack Sheppard – Beta were left to scrap it out for spain podiumfifth and sixth places. Casales now heads Sheppard by four points in the general standings, with Moret only three points off the British rider thanks to his runners-up result today.

French rider Quentin Carles de Caudemberg – Beta took his third straight win in the Youth category, which marked his fourth win in total this season. Although now dominant in the general standings, Carles de Caudemberg holds a twenty-eight point cushion over his nearest title rivals, he had to fend off Italy’s Gabriele Giarba – Beta who finished in second spot today. Britain’s Bradley Cox – Beta completed the podium, but lost further ground to his French rival in the title race by finishing in third spot. Timo Myohanen – Beta from Finland continued his good run of form by slotting into fourth position today.

The 2013 FIM Trial World Championship will take a short break before bursting back into life in Barzio, Italy on Sunday 7th July.

With the Alberta floods filling most of the news channels, it’s going to be some time before the full details of all the damage is tallied up - I spoke to Pete yesterday, he was in Yorkton Sask: last week on a family visit, and was headed back to BC when he heard about the floods and road closures - he made the 20 hour drive via the Yellowhead ( along with a zillion truckers) - Next call was to Jimmy to see how things were at Elko, and he reported that the nearby small town had been evacuated, but he is up high enough to avoid problems, However Hwy 3 was washed out in at least one place, with the towns of Fernie and Sparwood  flooded, and also Coleman and other places in the Crowsnest Pass are under water. - Jimmy took a ride on his Beta over to a spot near the river, and said the sound of huge boulders being dragged along by the rushing water was downright scary.


Although the weather turned out nice yesterday in the Valley, we are back to cloudy conditions this morning - the forecast is promising for later and tomorrow. - I had a shipment of Opti come in so my Friday was quite busy.


Here’s a neat pic of a Manx Norton - one of the best road race bikes ever built - thanks to Cycle News for this>>

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Today is the first day of summer, although it won’t feel much like that for many residents of Alberta, where the flooding caused by the big storms, have devastated many areas.- The town of High River was completely underwater, as was Bragg Creek, and even parts of downtown Calgary were hard hit, with the Bow river only inches from breaching the Center Street Bridge. - Our thoughts and prayers go out to everybody effected, especially Chris Wilson of High River, as I’m sure his home would have been flooded, as it is located near the bank of the Highwood River. - Looking at the amazing video footage of the road near Canmore, it’s hard to believe that I drove through that area last Saturday, on route to the Trial, - I know that the black clouds were looking really menacing, even back then.

With the conditions being what they are, the back country in Alberta is in rough shape, with lots of the Forestry roads and bridges damaged, so the SGC Race and Trial scheduled for this weekend, is cancelled, plus we don’t know as yet what the baseline location is like - Harold and his crew are supposed to be out there this weekend working on set up for the Last round of the Outlaw Series, on July 1/2nd. - We will monitor the situation, and post up to the minute inf: on the blog.


I see that the Vernon club have a Family event on this Sunday, in the Noble Canyon area, - not sure as yet, but I might take a drive out to take some pics & show off the Trials bikes. - Chris from Revvy might also drive down, although with all the rain that we have had for the past few days, we are also experiencing some flooding.


The World Trials Circus, will be back in action in Spain this weekend, with Adam Raga trying to keep his Championship hopes alive - Emma Bristow and Becky Cook will be fighting it out again in the Women’s class.

It looks like the forecasters had it right for the Okanagan weather, as it’s still raining this morning - non-stop now for the past 24 hours. However, the good news is that Summer officially arrives around 10pm tomorrow night !! Whoop-de-doo.!!

Janice Whitby (daughter of our old buddy John Whitby) just posted on face-book that both hwy #1 and #1A are closed in Calgary because of flooding, and the Town of High River ( Home of our buddy Chris Wilson) is under an emergency watch.


I had a good chat to long time friend and super MX rider Zoli Berenyi recently, Zoli is now handling the Beta Enduro bikes out of his Sherwood Park shop, and is really impressed by the quality of the Italian machines - Any Albertan’s  interested in these should give him a call - His shop is just down the road from where Taff lives.


In other news, I see that Valentino Rossi was happy with the changes made to his Yamaha at the practice session they had in Spain - seems the bike now handles much better under heavy braking ,- they are also using a stiffer rear swing arm.


The change to the rules in World Trials, seems to have now settled down, although I don’t think there has been any increase in rider numbers, in fact the tight economy is probably the thing that will have the biggest effect on this.

Tony Bou goes into this weekend’s round in the unfamiliar position of 2nd in the points standings, after a rejuvenated  Adam Raga won in the USA and then again on day one last week in Andorra. - Looking at the videos, the non-stop action does seem to add something to the sport, and might make it more exciting for spectators, but in my opinion, trying to make Trials a spectator sport is a bit like watching paint dry, - pretty boring.


I was pleased with the pictures I got while at the Falun Trial, in spite of the poor light due to the weather conditions - especially the ones taken with my Nikon - I’ve been struggling a bit at times with the camera settings, and without an electronic flash they have sometimes been a bit below par. - Now I just have to figure out the Canon that I use lots of the time when I’m out on the trail. - ( You can see these pics on my gallery)


And finally ! - RIP  Big Tony Soprano - He was a great actor .

Leading duo head to home Grand Prix

The stage could not be more perfectly set with just a single point separating Adam Raga – Gas Gas and Toni Bou – Repsol Montesa in the general standings as this leading duo head to their home Grand Prix this Sunday. The little known town of Pobladura, which sits just under four hundred kilometres north west of the Spanish capital of Madrid will host round four of the 2013 FIM Trial World Championship this weekend as the current series reaches its halfway stage. Visits to Italy, the Czech Republic, Great Britain and France will form the latter part of the season.The battle between Raga and Bou is an intriguing one, with the reigning and six times FIM Trial World Champion Bou looking vulnerable for the first time in a prolonged period. Although Bou initially seized the upper hand in Japan, Raga responded strong in the USA with back to back wins to head the general standings as the series shifted back to Europe for last weekend’s encounter. Some thought normal service would be resumed, but when Raga recorded his third straight victory on the bounce on the opening day in Andorra the question mark behind Bou taking a seventh outdoor crown in a row suddenly grew much larger.

With doubters beginning to circle, Bou responded brilliantly on day two to deliver an important and dominant win that very much brought the title back within his reach. Now the question is – will it be Raga or Bou who will make the most of their home advantage? As a win for either rider at the Spanish Grand Prix will allow the victor to enjoy the two-week break before Italy as the series leader.

However this weekend’s battle is sure to be anything other than a two-way fight with a host of other World Pro contenders looking to steal the spotlight away from the leading duo. Other home riders Albert Cabestany – Sherco and Jeroni Fajardo – Beta will be hoping that the support of their home fans will drive them on to claim what would be their first win of the year. Takahisa Fujinami – Repsol Montesa is the only protagonist other than Bou or Raga who has sprayed the winner’s champagne this season, so the Japanese rider knows more than most how to topple this pairing and will be desperate to return to the podium at least after two fifth places last time out if he is to maintain third spot in the championship table. James Dabill – Beta is also another rider who could feature amongst the front- runners this weekend.

Back to back wins for Jorge Casales – Gas Gas in Andorra last weekend have put him seven points clear at the top of the Junior standings, and would suggest that he is the rider to beat in this division this Sunday. If Britain’s Jack Sheppard – Beta is to prevent Casales further stretching a lead that was once his, he will need to be back to the form that he showed in Japan and the USA. In this hotly contested category Spain’s Francesc Moret – Gas Gas and Pol Tarres – Sherco remain in contention for the title and will join their compatriots in wanting to make the most of riding on home turf this weekend.

Quentin Carles de Caudemberg – Beta from France is the runaway leader in the Youth class, he takes an impressive twenty-three point advantage with him to Spain having now won on no less than four occasions so far this season, two of those victories coming in Andorra just a few days ago. Like Sheppard in the Junior class, fellow British rider Bradley Cox – Beta has work to do if he is serious about closing down the young French rider and really must win in Pobladura this Sunday as part one of that process. Italy’s Gabriele Giarba – Beta will attempt to keep these two leading riders in his sights, knowing that his home GP is up next in two weeks time.

I see that Matt Fracy took two third places in the NATC High school class at the New York US Nationals - scores looked to be close - He will be at the Vermont rounds this weekend, so we wish him luck.
