A number of people have contacted us regarding Sam King’s accident, but we can only tell you what we have seen on Facebook , which is that he has a Trials school this weekend scheduled at Ioco, then he flies to Australia on Monday for a month. Like they say, no news is good news.

=======================================>

We are still in the icy grip of winter, with another dump of snow yesterday, with more in the forecast.

But take a look at this pic of Pete & Zoe Bustin’s front porch !!! now that is a lot of snow for the lads to clear at Ymir. BC. - Just as well nobody was underneath when it all came off the roof.

The latest issue of Trial Mag: UK will hit the news-stands soon, and will include a test of the new TRS 300, now going into it’s 3rd year.   - As the Dealer of this brand for Central BC and Alberta, we can report that the bike has proven to be not only very reliable, but at the top edge of the results sheets, all over the globe.  - The parts supply when needed - is as always, next day service from Vancouver ( Mountain Motorcycle) - However we should mention that we have yet to sell a rear fender for any of these bikes ( Not even Sam has broken one)   Some of which have lots of miles on them - The very first 2016 TRS 300 went to a customer in Northern BC, who is known for being fairly hard on his bikes - suffice to say  that so far he has not needed to order ANY parts.

The French city of Strasbourg will this Friday host the FIM X-Trial World Championship which arrives at its halfway point with Toni Bou firmly in command. It is the first time that the city of the European parliament has held a world championship indoor trial event.

The capital of the Alsace region plays host for the first time to a trial competition in the X-Trial World Championship, with no less than the participation of Repsol Honda Team’s multi-time champion Toni Bou. The fourth date in the calendar will take place at the Zénith Europe centre in Strasbourg this Friday evening at 20:00 hrs. Fans can look forward to a qualifying round, followed by the semi-finals and the subsequent final, with the winner’s podium scheduled for 23:00.

Toni Bou, after winning the three previous races (Vendée, Montpellier and Toulouse) has a substantial advantage at the head of the X-Trial Championship overall standings, some eighteen points clear of main rival Adam Raga.

The Strasbourg event is the final round of the string of events in French cities, with the championship now moving on to Spain for the next two stops (Barcelona and Seville) before the championship closes with dates in Paris and Budapest.

An’ foolish notion.”
