The pic below is not from this year - but the same fantastic area where the WTC ATRA Cow Patty is held - We are extremely lucky to have land owners willing to let us use their property, and we hope it continues this way.

Trials riders are a great bunch who respect the land and clean up after the event.
On another note, we had a visit on Tuesday, with Ian Rood, who moved to Kamloops a couple of years ago from Vancouver, he is quite active in the local club, helping with set up on Cross Country events, but is very interested in hosting Trials at Greenstone Mountain,  ( He has a Scorpa) - so I have been putting him in touch with local Trials riders, and explaining about that area that we used back in 2003-4-

Mike Crumly worked really hard on making sections for these events doing most of the physical work while I directed. - ( Hope you are reading this Mike)  We will keep in touch with Ian and help out when possible to maybe host another Trial in that location.

This is a great shot of Don Smith riding a typical UK section on the Greeves - It’s unusual, because Don normally had a cigarette in his mouth any time he was riding a section ( not surprisingly he died of lung cancer) - Although Don rode for Greeves, he also developed the early Montesa, and later became a Kawasaki factory rider - ( I have his book which is very interesting)

So Tuesday we had a TRRS 280 arrive - pretty sure somebody’s name is on this one - but we still have a few 2019 models left at very good prices, both Beta and TRS - call us if interested. ( Believe me there has never been a better time to buy)
=====================================>

Got a call from Andrew Christianson our Aussie buddy - chatted about the 2019 Silver Star event - which Beta Canada have helped sponsor, and will in fact have a line up of the 2020 Bikes (Enduro) on display over the weekend, with demo rides. - Naturally, I will be up there, as it’s only about 15 minutes¬† from my house - Will have more news on this later, but mark the date down on your calendar Sept 21-23 weekend ( Poster is on FB)

Now here is an unusual photo ->

Not sure who called at 6 am today - it was an Alberta number and leaving a garbled message from a cell phone while driving!!
