Sunday July 7th 2019

Well Saturday, was a bit of a lazy day - that is until late afternoon - Dominique stopped by to pick up her new Wulf Helmet ( extra  small)  - so we are now planning on going to Summerland today for a ride - weather looks a  bit “Iffy” so might need the rain gear again.  - Thursday I was out on the Evo 200,  -  today I think I will take the TRS 125 - will post some pics later. - Plan is to see if we can get over the top of the mountain  which will be a first for this year and likely to be a challenge. - More on our adventure later.

We had not not heard from Jimmy so late Saturday I elected to drive to Kelowna, and up to Thunder Mountain Raceway, where he was supposed to be with his lad who does quite a lot of Drag Racing. - - I wasn’t even sure if they would be holding the event after all the rain, but found lots of vehicles in the parking lot and the sound of high powered engines. It’s the first time that I have ever been to this location, which is on Hiway 3  the other side of the Big White turn off.

With no idea where to look, I wandered around and watched a few bikes doing their thing on the Drag strip, before running into Don Fergin from Calgary, ( Universal Cycle) who told me Jimmy was in the lower pit area. - I found him studying his lap top alongside his sons’ race bike, and we had a good chat, before walking back to where his van was parked, and alongside - the TY 175 that I had come to collect.  - Glad to report the 44 year old bike looks as good as the pictures, and has all original  Handle bars, levers, rear muffler - fenders etc. - I will give it a detailed going over this week and post more info. and pics.

The Spanish Championship is on this weekend, and no surprises, with Toni Bou on top of the box and Adam Raga 2nd - Busto was 3rd on the Vertigo, although he was still being listed as riding a GG in the entry list. - I did see a video of Adam on a very natural looking section, and of course these Spanish events are all run under the Stop allowed format.

Not only does Jordi run the TRS Factory and the Trials Team - he does the the cooking at the events as well  - nothing too fancy about that. What a great boss.
