Well the Wednesday weather was the best for a long time - in fact the local car wash was going steady - However, I managed to get Babsy’s car in for a quick bath.
After that it was time to load the van with a bunch of garbage, & head over to the Land-fill. -  Andrew (Christiansen) was on duty, so we had a good chat. - Like everybody else, he is fed up with the long winter.

Unfortunately, this morning we are back to the familiar sight of light snow coming down - I guess yesterday was just a “Teaser”

Sammy just posted this video of himself and Birdman having fun at Ioco -He said they went straight from the airport to ride Ioco after his 20 hour flight from Australia. !! Looks like they are already  up to speed practicing for their “Ride the Vibe” shows.


Here is another video - this one on old MX racing >>>  2-stroke Motocross

Yesterday, I posted that there was quite a bit of snow at Scotch Creek - this is at the Rathbone Ranch !! Think Ross will be needing good throttle control if he rides the new Beta out in his back yard.

A lot of people are familiar with the great photographs posted on FB by Shawn Watson, from Vancouver - many of these so far have been road racing or flat track pics, but this is all about to change, as he has just bought a new Beta from Mountain MC, here is a shot from his first ride at Ioco.

Also at Ioco next Sunday, is the annual Introduction to Trials day - when newcomers can get out to look, touch, and ride a Trials bike, with instructors for all abilities - wish we could attend, but as most people in our area know, the memorial for Gloria Miller takes place this Sunday at the Lodge Hotel in Vernon at 2 pm.

And here is one to recognize “International Women’s Day” ( Not sure who the lady rider is) - We would also like to mention at this time, that the ladies are always more than welcome at our Trials events, in fact last year the WTC added a Woman’s #1 Plate to the Championship Series, which was won by Dominique Doyon at Malakwa.

Yesterday, I posted a link to the Spitfire Story - A wonderful Tribute to perhaps the greatest Fighter Aircraft ever built, and in the nick of time as World War Two erupted. - Here is a pic of the last airworthy plane in the UK.
