Well THAT was fun. A typically beautiful blue-sky day at our High Desert season opener of the 2019/2020 trials championship season. A few (or more) gusty winds kept everyone on their best balancing act, while the usual rocks, sand and slab did their part in gathering dabs. I was out checking Section 9- a great desert vista, with two main obstacles. For the experts, a HUGE boulder with no proper run up. And for everyone else, a soft, always decomposing climb, which changed in character all day long. Smiles were everywhere, and the members of SCTA were to a person, ready to rumble.
Saturday the riders went forth on the Adventure Ride, along the heralded National Loop. Myself took the easy way, but just so I could watch these guys on the final ascent. Really quite a spectacular sight.
Me? I’m already marking the days to our next event, at Motoventures, later this month. More on that, later, my friends.
