The above pic was taken at Revelstoke after the WTC National we held there back a few years.  Sammy still had his long hair ( And I still had my front teeth)

The pic below is also at Revvy and shows a bunch of the local gals ( including Emily Roberts) out for a fun day riding the muddy trails. ( I hope Emily was showing them some Trial techniques)

I must remember to buy a Lottery Ticket !!!

So what is everybody doing on this rather gloomy wet day ?  Hopefully we won’t get the big heavy rain like yesterday - I was down town delivering Opti - dashed into the shop with the invoice - said  -”Your oil is in the back of the van mate -  get your rain jacket on and unload it” !!

=============================================>
I see a bunch of the lads are camping out this weekend at OK Falls - Andrew James posted an invite to everybody to join for a laid back session - Not sure what I’m doing at this point but might try to make it Sunday to show off my estart TRS 300 Xtrack.

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

Jamie McGregor from Ontario took this pic as a young lad attending the 1975 Canadian World Championship Round which I set up - It shows Malcolm Rathmell on the Prototype Montesa in one of the water sections.

It’s funny, thinking back I remember how sometimes we would be riding these river sections and you would hear and feel the rocks moving beneath the wheels in the current !! -  We always made our sections challenging - it’s a different sport now - bikes are fantastic but all this hopping is just a big Yawn for me.

Roger Boothroyd sent me this video clip of a ride one of the Island guys did at Squamish - You will need to punch in the link as I could not copy it - but believe me it’s worth watching - the words Extreme and Nuts come to mind!!
