Definetly one of the more challenging ones for the lower class this year. Only got a couple pics from the section I was scoring; pretty easy one for the uppers. The section before seemed like it was a rough one. I saw lots of punches on the wrong side come through.

Different riders; same section sequence. Warning: drops may be larger than they appear....

No affiliation or connection. Just an FYI to any parties who may be interested:

"TRIALS SCHOOL"

"Ray Peters will be in CO to hold a trials school on November 9-10. Cost is $200 for both days, $125 for one day. There is a 12 student limit, priority will go to riders signing up for both days. Location will be in the Howard/Turkey Rock area, known as the Banana Belt due to it's mild climate."

Contact Chris Hertrich to reserve a spot.

Sr Amateur. I helped set up Pilot Peak and it afforded me the opportunity to ride more, and do sections over and over until I cleaned them. Got a lot more laps and peg time in which really helped me since I'm so new to the sport. And I got some good tips from better riders.

26 degrees when I left my house in Conifer. Bbbrrrr

Another great event. Thanks to Brake and the others who set it and worked it. It definitely worked me!!

We scored section 6 (upper) in the afternoon. Wow - the trialsmasters were either in a very good, or a very bad, mood when setting that one. I've never seen so many good riders walk a section and say, "Nah, I'll take the 5". The riders that did attempt it provided a lot of excitement. One advanced rider cleaned it (don't know his name), only official clean of the day; though afterwards Chase Abbott rode it 5 times consecutively just for the satisfaction of cleaning it. After 3 attempts he said, "Man, I'm getting tired". I was getting tired just watching him!! His persistence was awesome to see.
