MOTOMOTO: The Big Thanks!

What a weekend! Our intrepid Pointskeeper/Scorekeeper, Eric Mattson, before the finger incident.Two perfect days, with a classic rain shower hitting exactly as we were wrapping up, as the weather gods smiled upon us. Two hard-fought days, with only a couple of trips to Temecula Regional thrown in.

A HUGE thanks to all who made it happen, starting with Marcus Miller, outgoing SDTR President. Thank you for always pouring your heart, and sweat, into every event. Thanks to Jared Malmquist and John Russo of Motoworld, for ALL the amazing prizes(!) with all proceeds going to the American Trial de Nations team- nice. Thanks to Gabby Caperon for helping me count the cash and balance the books, and for just always being on top of things. Thanks to Ryan Miller for his georgeously lettered scoresheets- way impressive. Thanks to SDTR, for easily staffing all 20 sections with the best checkers, ever. Thanks to Gary LaPlante of Motoventures, and the Cahuilla Band of indians for the opportunity to ride.

PS: A few pics, here.




Rounds 2 and 3, next Saturday and Sunday. At beautiful Cahuilla Creek, AKA MotoVentures, AKA Anza. AKA https://www.google.com/maps/@33.5340792,-116.7677067,18.59z

Anyhow, this coming weekend, throw away your silly Halloween party plans, because we'll be dressing up as MOTOMOTO maniacs, for two whole days as we criss cross around some of the funnest singletrack you can scoot your trials bike along in all of SoCal! San Diego Trials riders have once again crafted a set of events guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. Prizes too! tires, grips, and who knows what other goodies await you if you ride or check on Saturday!

The season is young, the sections are incredible, and the skies are always blue. Next weekend. At Motoventures.

Awesome prizes, a full-on saturday night barbecue, camping, and more. Held at MotoVentures, the SDTR trials masters have lovingly concocted not 10, but TWENTY of the finest sections ever built, ever. Ever.

For the FIRST time ever, I get to be on a flier. How cool is that?

Much more info on the events page, and here's a flier to download for your fridge.

Slabtember, Tuesday Night Edition

Greetings Southern California, THIS weekend, we proudly kick off the...

2016/2017 Southern California Trials Association Moto-Trial Championship Series!

Yep, we are definitely fresh and ready for a new season. This first event has been deemed by many to be succulently slabberiffic, as we ascend apon glorious Cougar Buttes, in our very own Mojave Desert. The rocks have been fine tuned by the veteran and able Plonker Section Masters, the exquisite sections connected with a to-and-fro loop that will keep your inner Karsmakers smiling.*

Camping of course, with awesome rides on Saturday (National Loop, anyone?), a play-by-play ride to view the sections, all followed by moon-howling, stiffolina-inducted campfire frolicking! Oh yes- we also have a real-life professionaly crafted practice section. Just for you.
Sunday, BRING YOUR AMA CARD, and get ready to ride. We will have personal pre-event tech inspection by Todd Bennett, all new SCTA cards (!), and an early-ish riders meeting. THEN let's go get our trials on.

All this, under the beautiful autumn skies of the southern Mojave. Life is good.Yes. Sky brings her ever-beaming smile

I hope your Week is wonderful, and full of end-of-summer bliss. See you THIS weekend. More info here, all week long.
