Thumb How One Trials Rider went out of his way to encourage a relative newbie.....

his came in my mail today...it had me quite literally in tears. WHAT A KEEPSAKE.

A thousand thanks to Nancy and Ralph Littlefield for doing this for me. It was a proud day, and it means so much that someone else thought it was worth the time.

WANT TO ENCOURAGE NEWER RIDERS??? simple kindnesses like this are simply invaluable.

I cannot say enough thanks to Ralph and Nancy for this true generosity....
(This was from the Peoria 2 day but meant to give to me at the Byron event...)

AM I think anyone that saw you or talked to you Saturday afternoon could see your excitement.
Glad you have something to really remember it by.

Thanks for sharing this great sport with me.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

Our club does this for "clean cards" which are rare except for novice class former newby's but it is the same idear... we do it at year end banquets.

Thanks so much guys. I just thought it was such a wonderfully generous thing they did for me. No idea if they normally do it for a rider's first ever clean loop ... but it SURE was a wonderful surprise and a really cool example of supporting and encouraging a newer rider.

I got within 20' of a clean loop once. It's a fine thing, and to honor it so is what one comes to expect of this odd little sport...

Good ride, amcross!

awww...thanks ;) it might've been just the right day, or the fact that Ralph knows I genuinely believed I would never move out of Novice due to some real limitations in my learning curve early on.

Kailey was AMAZING at the last event!!
