As many recall, Roxanne had the best form of anyone. She told me trials was a dance. Me thinks her dance was ballet.

I can just see TB smiling and smiling. Big Al always has great form.

I did see TB clean a good hard corner. I tried the opposite approach and tried to ride over the observer!

Thumb Lower classes out at 9 am. MST

The lower sections look good after only slight mods today, so all is well! Should be some great rides in Intermediate where thin gs are not yet settled for the year! See you there!

Soliciting opinions

So it seems not everyone had heard about the idea of letting the e-bikes ride the sections 3 times in succession instead of having to do the loop 3 times. The kids and I wound up going around once just riding each section once, and then needing to ride the sections twice on the second loop. Erin actually finished 1st in Novice, and Katy 1st in Beginner, so I was wondering if that was perceived as an advantage. Aside form the advantage of riding a bike that weighs 65 lbs., I mean. Next trials I will be better prepared with spare lead-acid batteries, because the loop actually did exhaust the charge on two of the three bikes even with only doing two circuits.
