A couple of years ago, in February, when Shane first got his TRS - we went flailing through the snow up on Bear Ridge - I took a great video of him shooting a huge “Rooster” tail

Here is a wonderful shot of Blackie Holden ( 197 James)  at the Scottish, taken I think up on Grey Mare’s Ridge. - pic courtesy Ian Lawrie.  - Wonderful view - I’ve hiked up there.

Another blast from the past myself( on the right) with my buddy Malcolm ( who died many years ago) with our first bikes - he had a Francis Barnett and I had a 197 cc James Captain  - However, I soon got interested in Trials and exchanged the Street bike for a James Cotswold - and that was the beginning of my Competition days.

This is a great Jimmy Young pic of one of the very rare CCM Trials bikes ( only 113 were built) the  defunct BSA parts & engines were bought by enthusiast Alan Clews, who  produced some very good bikes for both Scrambles  and Trials. Pic courtesy Trials Guru. ( I think the rider is Eddie Wise)

Weather today looks to be quite nice, so I will make a trip to Kelowna - stopping off to see Roy on my way home via the Westside road - I will check out snow conditions at Bear Creek as I drive past, & maybe take a couple of pics.

=======================================>

While we have had snow - the UK has been hit by big floods from the recent storms - Wales and Coastal areas in particular have been swamped, our thoughts go out to our many friends over there. - This is the River Wye in full flood.
