We have now heard from a number of our regular readers that they are in fact clicking onto the new blog – . Although we have much work ahead before we will be satisfied. – Perhaps the sad part, is that as our old blog disappeared , into cyber- space – so it seems did about 20 years of Outlaw records!!!
A few people got the only quiz posted so far – which of course was Jon English in the Scott Trial last Saturday – an easy one for most but used just to get some feed back.
Of course the question is – would any of our readers consider flogging themselves and their bikes over 80 miles of super difficult terrain including approx 70 observed sections – just to try and win one of these spoons?
We heard from Stan that the Ioco Trial went over well, with I think 40 riders and a new Expert winner !! -Alex Lee from Squamish – Kolten got 2nd and Stan 3rd – no doubt Don Doerksen will have the results However Katie emailed to say she got 4th Inter out of ten riders, so that was an excellent result.
We just came across this old pic of me riding my last Trial at age 70 -on the Fantic at Stony Plain. – Walter Cukavac now owns this bike.
QUIZ – WHO IS THE RIDER AT THE SCOTT – WHAT IS THE BIKE and WHAT IS THE SECTION?????????
There are now a ton of great pics up on Facebook of the Scott Trial – and we have also noticed a huge growth in the number of Trials videos showing up on You Tube. – We watched a great one last night on the Three Days of Santigosa – which has footage from way back, right up until the present day. – All the top Spanish guys – many who are quite old – and of course the language is mostly Spanish – except for a brief chat with Dougie Lampkin. ( not that a lot will understand him either !!!)
