What a great ride we had yesterday - we posted it as a FUN day - but only the three of us took advantage of the snow free conditions to ride up on the ridge - Dale ( on the Gasser) lives in Summerland, and is new to trials, so we will forgive him for having those god awful bush guards on his bike.  - Although the usual reply to this when we mention this - is it “Saves breaking a lever” - unfortunately - these metal guards can very easily break your wrist if you go over the bars - easily done if you are a newbie on a Trials bike. ( Wrists take a long time to heal) -We see this quite a lot with Enduro riders, who get into Trials. - If you must fit these please use the plastic flexible units.

Dale enjoyed his day out, and seems to take instruction well - was smiling most of the time I saw him - Shane continues to improve, and will tackle most sections that we set up.

This is a pic I took of Pete, four years ago, in  Summerland - although we rode through some snow drifts that day, we were able to make it around our 20 km loop.  Hopefully we can get out there in three weeks time ( Easter Sunday)  The snow this year has been brutal, but we look forward to our first ride at this location. ( Will be thinking of you Pete)

And here is the video for today - brilliant riding by Adam Raga - I get tired just looking at all the effort he puts in ( might be showing off a bit) At any rate it would appear that this section could be “Cleaned” with going through so many acrobatics - very clever & likely popular with the spectators.

It looks like Christy Williams had a good weekend down South competing in the first round of the US National series - the results were hard to read so not quite sure who did all the winning.
