Andrew Christiansen stopped by to give me this really neat Trophy, left over from Silver Star, as the Trials race  at the Enduro X did not happen because of lack of interest - It’s really heavy and acts as a pit board on the other side - quite a work of art - Thanks Andrew.

My Trial Mag: arrived yesterday & as usual it is filled with great pics and articles - I especially like the one on young Billy Green (Beta)  - the New 125 cc World Trials Champion, and the Black & White pics from the 1968 Greensmith National Trial. - Sammy Miller was a regular winner at that, which took place not far from my old home town.  ( Can’t remember if I ever rode that one)

And how about this pic of another great rider - World MX Champ Jeff Smith - this was taken in 2006 in Australia at a Vintage Scramble. - Jeff raced Moose Mountain in Alberta in 1976. ( I think he is around my age) - I always remember that at the Trophy Presentation, Jeff showed up in a collar & Tie !!  it was about +30 and everybody else was in shorts and T shirts. ( Yes he is English)  - Jeff was also a very good Trials rider in his day, with wins at the Scottish and other British National Trials. - He lived in Canada for some time developing the Can Am bikes. But then moved Stateside.

I see Siggi has had to cancel his “Turkey Run” at Blackfoot Park, because of the snow - Walt Healy started this tradition, giving out Turkey’s to the winners.


Not sure what people are doing this weekend - weather is supposed to be not too bad in the Valley.
