This is a pic of me that just popped up on FB from a few years ago, when I captioned the Revelstoke area as “The future for Off Road Motorcycling in BC”  - Well ! this really hasn’t panned out that way, with little  progress regarding Trials, and  nothing on the Calendar this year.

However, this does not mean all doom & gloom, as we will be chatting to the local enthusiasts about hosting something in 2020. - Because as you can see by the pic - it’s a wonderful place.

So Beta are indeed making the Evo 200 for 2020 !! This is one in the UK - as this is the case - my 2019 model is now up for sale - call me for details - they are a “Giant Killer”

Your video fix for today >>


With the Thanksgiving long weekend here, I’m sure a lot of people will be out on the bike - taking advantage of the nice Fall weather we are having in the Okanagan Valley -  - The past couple of months have sure been hectic, starting with the ATRA Rocky Mountain Trial, followed by Ymir  then Silver Star- after which came our daughter’s wedding, and finally the Brown Memorial.  - Not that I’m complaining, as it has been a fantastic time of  fun and sport - ( The wedding was the only weekend we were not on two wheels)

The colder temperatures came as a bit of a shock - but at least we have only seen snow either up on the hills above Yankee Flats which we can see from our back deck, or on TV from places like Alberta.


Over the Pond, the big Trials event this weekend is the Scott Trial - ( Reported in previous blogs) as somebody once said “The best way to destroy a good bike in one day”  - However, that doesn’t discourage   the riders, who flock to Yorkshire for the annual “Race” around the moors. - The entry is I think restricted to 300 !! but the DNF rate is usually high  ( Bit like the Alberta Cross Country races from the 70’s).

This is an old pic of me passing a stuck Greeves rider in a Welsh Time Trial back in the 1950’s
