Glad to say that this pic is from January 2015 - not this year, although we have had quite a lot of snow to date in 2017. ( hopefully no more big storms coming)

Here is an interesting shot from 1983 - it shows that moment of panic, when you have to decide to let the bike go, or hang on & try and save it. - The rider is Pedro Olle and the bike is a Beta - Of course in 1984, Yamaha came out with the TY 250 Mono-shock, which made all the other bikes obsolete .

Yesterday, I mentioned being contacted by Pete Matheson from Grand Forks, who used to live in Vancouver, many years ago. Pete suggested I visit his website to see what he has been up to since hanging up his Trials boots - You can read all about this tiny house he built by googling petemathesongrandforks  - interesting concept for the homeless people.
