Another “Dusting” of the white stuff last night - nothing serious, but it’s starting to become tiresome..

Meanwhile here is an old pic that just popped  up. - It shows me in the middle, congratulating Tony Alan (left) and Guy Perret  after a Cross Country race near Kamloops. - We were sponsoring them both at that time with Opti Oil    ( see logo on Guy’s jersy.)

The riders are “Warming up” in Barcelona for the X Trial.,  - Bob & Brett will be there to watch the action and hoping for a win by Adam Raga, but we know that’s unlikely with Mr B seemingly unbeatable at the moment. - No doubt there is a lot going on behind the scenes, after the fiasco at Strasbourg. - We will post more news later.

For me, my day will be spent once again “kicking back” and watching the golf ( no not the Super bowl)  - I enjoy watching golf, although I have never played the game, as I think it’s similar to Traditional Trials, in that it’s a “Head game” - knowing when to “Lay-up” and which club to use etc - Just as in Trials, planning a “Dab” when everybody is taking 3’s & 5’s, can help your score at the end of the day. There are a lot of very good players and riders, who never win, because they don’t have the right mental attitude.

I took this shot of the Sand Cranes back a few years when I was out with Pete setting up the Outlaw Trial at Summerland - It’s a wonderful sight and sound every spring as they head North.
