Two days of near perfect weather. A riding venue in the Southern Sierras that is always special. 72 riders. A mind bending, unreal exhibition of otherworldly skills thrown down by the country's best trials riders. An acre of smiles when we look out from sign up! Yes. Yes the 46th El Trial de Espana was a massive success! Thank you to each and everyone of our 72 riders (17 from NorCal, thank you guys and girls, the support is much appreciated). Super big thank you to our 20 checkers who made it all go smoothly out there in the trenches. Sign up was nice and tidy, running like clockwork thanks to all of you who gave a hand under the awning. "Above and beyond" thank yous to Prolong Super Lubricants for the cool checker "swag bags"! At the center of the El Trial Universe, Damon Barda kept all the "plates spinning" with grace and humor. Thank you Damon for the heroic effort all weekend long! I had a great weekend. Thank you all! I want to see all of you next year at the 47th El Trial de Espana! (We will get some photos and results up soon).
