With so much snow in the OK Valley this year, all we can do to relieve the cabin fever, is to look back at the pics and videos from other years. - Here is a shot from a great day I had out with Matt last year on the Evo 200’s, near Cherryville.  You will notice that my bike at the back,  has a different header pipe, and other trick bits that we sell.

Brett & Bob have been enjoying a quick visit to the TRS Factory - here they are with Jordi, who is an old friend of the Clark Family from his days at Beta & Gas Gas.  - Sunday they will attend the X Trial at Barcelona, held at the “Palau Sant Jordi” -  before flying back to Vancouver.

We have just heard that the Ormstown Vintage event for 2018 has been cancelled due to land use issues, Although its been held on Private property for a number of years, it seems some neighbors object  to the noise - the organizers hope to get things sorted for 2019. - Mick & Jill Andrews are always guests at this great get-together, which features both Trials and Scrambles competitions.


We had a surprise visit from Bruce Baker yesterday - he stopped by to pick up some boots, but also told us that he is planning on moving to Kelowna in the Spring.


It seems that the Beta Factory, have been quietly adding to their Teams for both Enduro and Trials - the latest is Travis Teasdale from South Africa - He surprised a lot of people by finishing 2nd to Graeme Jarvis at The Tough One last week, at Nantmawr in the UK, ahead of David Knight. - With World Champion Steve Holcombe already signed for another season, the Italian Factory should do well.


For Rugby fans, there is a big game happening today in Cardiff, South Wales - as I’m not a big fan, I’m afraid I don’t know who the Welsh Team are playing, but I do know that Taff will already be down at the local Pub in Sherwood Park to take it all in on the big screen.  - Have a great day buddy & stay out of the cold. UPDATE:

Wales were playing Scotland and beat them big time.

And finally - here is a Blast from the Past that just popped up on FB - Shows myself on the 325 Bultaco Sherpa T, on a big hill section, South of Calgary, back in 1973 - likely one of the last rides I had on that bike before joining Yamaha ( Wish I had kept it)
