The Dakar Rally is always tough, certainly not for the faint of heart - the latest news has last years winner, Sam Sunderland from the UK, retiring from the event after leading for the first three days. - A bad crash in the dunes has left him with a badly bruised back. - Aussie Toby Price is still going well as is Super broad Laia Sanz.
Here is a great shot, showing how close the choppers get to the action.

We saw this pic of Andrew Christiansen, posted on FB -It shows him flying the Gasser at one of the Vernon races a couple of years ago - Andrew who now rides a Yamaha, is a prime mover in the local Off road scene, having been President of the Vernon based Club, and also the main man behind the Silver Star event. ( We even had him out on the Trials bikes last year when we were looking at doing something at Silver Star)

Outlaw sold Gassers from 1993 until 2005 - a ton of Trials bikes and set up a few dealers with the Enduro bikes to help out Don Clark of Mountain MC.

Like most people these days, I check out the social media for information - but sometimes wonder which wrong button I pressed, in order to get all the latest Political BS - from Spain - Is it because I am a “Friend” who happens to sell Spanish bikes ?  We are not interested in how they work out their differences, as long as it doesn’t effect the Trials bike market.

Although this blog is made up primarily of Trials news - we do like to post general stuff from all the other types of motorcycle competitions, plus the odd bit of info on what is happening in the Industry, and details on any upcoming legislation.  - It appears that this last point regarding the proposed shutting down of all Crown Land in Alberta was a hot Topic at the Calgary Motorcycle show last weekend, as it very well should be. - It’s an absolute outrage what is happening in that Province under the NDP Government.


Here is a pic I took back in 1966 when they were building the Calgary Tower -  ( the original got torn a bit hence the white line)
