Thanks for the input fellas. I will stick with the Novice line for sure so I can get a good grip on how an event goes. There are two more events put on by this same club in Ohio in October that I plan to attend and could bump up to Intermediate if I feel up for it then.

Pretty freaking excited!

You'll bump up immediately after the Ryan Young clinic Choicecut. Clinic is starting to fill up, and the farm is shaping up nicely.

Have fun this weekend!

I can't wait for that clinic! October is going to be trials every weekend. Going to ride an event the 5th/6th, RYP school the 19th/20th and another event the 26th/27th.. Should be a great month!

Edit: And another event in Toronto, OH November 11th..

Choice, You should just take vacation and stay down here that week, practice what Ryan teaches you, and ride the 2 day MTR is putting on out in western NC. 2nd day is a Money Trials.

That would be sweet, but my wife could only get off the Monday after the clinic. We are coming down that Friday and heading back on Monday. I suppose I could always tell her and my daughter to thumb it back to Ohio.

Bus fare is pretty cheap these days.

Being a noob myself and going to my first event on Sept. 14th & 15th,(STRA in Hayesville NC) how do you guys typically carry the scorcards around with you??
Choicecut I know how you feel about being scared. Riding in the yard and having ribbons out is probably a whole different ballgame.

I use a clip-aligator clip like ones you see on clip on badges or IDs. Some use punches to poke hole in cards at one end... our cards are pre marked with up to 16 sections 3 loops each. You can duct tape one end to brake or clutch hoses/cables, or punch hole at one end to fit onto vent hose connector. Unless raining . .. don't put in pocket.

I duct tape mine to the front brake line at the top - with a tape flap so it can be peeled back easily. Some people use paper clamps instead of tape - others put it in a pocket and get it out each section. Make sure you dont lose it.

I staple my loop card to my chest to show the checker that I'm really tough and into pain.

Seriously though...I put my card in a waist/enduro type pack with an extra set of gloves, a rag, some fluid, an energy bar, some energy shots or gels, and most importantly some eye protection. I carry an extra scoring pen in there as well.

After the section I hand the checker my scorecard, grab a swig and put on my eye pro if I have a transit to the next section. That's my routine.

Don't wear a camelback due to the high CG theory.

Welp, glad you brought that up. I wouldn't have been prepared! I thought they zip tied them to your bike FOR you.

Punch a hole in the card and zip tie it to the clutch cable.

Rode both Saturday and Sunday at the Trials Inc event in Newark Ohio. Novice class was much more difficult than I was expecting. I placed 3rd on Saturday and 4th on Sunday. I think I will hang in the Novice group for awhile longer.

Was a freaking blast and everyone was super friendly!
