Thumb NM National at Sipapu--Signup NOW!

Come ride the AMA/NATC national at Sipapu NM (near Taos) at 8K-10K feet elevation. It has been nice and cool in the mountains with occaisional rain and the views and terrain are spectacular. In 2007, the national at Sipapu was voted best national, and this one will not disappoint either. The Sipapu chairlift will be running, there will be a band on the patio at the bar/grill Saturday night, what more could a trials rider ask for? NMTA had a two day event at Taos Ski Valley (site of the best national in 2001) yesterday and today and we had more riders turn out for it than are presently signed up for the national...what's up?

Signup for the NM national closes Friday night (July 19th), so get to it! Go here to sign up now! We look forward to seeing you there!

Eh? 39 riders not a national make

No increase as of tonight...39 riders and 11 minders is pathetic! In 2007, we had a low turn out of 80+/- because it was the last event of the year. Hope it turns around soon!

Bob, you missed some interesting discussion around what we should do. I will be checking the count nightly.

Thought I just said to let NMTA To ride ride lowers! I mean we only have 3 new mexico riders this year. Time to cut the Sr riders to two age groups!

We can't ride. We are all checking AFAIK.

Thumbs down NATC has 21 Classes

NATC has 21 classes, we have 39 signups in 17 different classes so far, almost an award for everyone!

I imagine that the news that makes it sound like NM is burning down hasn't helped one bit.

The news that we have been getting almost daily showers and the whole state is greening up beautifully doesn't make the evening news.

. It might be that people cancelled their plans when all the fires were raging.
What was the a turnout at the two eastern events? We only had three NM riders at those, right?

I would promote the hell out of lower classes and try to get some RMTA riders or AZ riders to ride. The "serious" riders have already spoken.

Thumb Come one, come all...

Not sure how we can promote to RMTA or the CAT groups...if you know how, go for it! The Vermont and NY rounds had about 90 each day. This could be the death knell of the national series in the west. RMTA may do one next year, but who else is there? This will be my last one as organizer, though I am proud of how everybody is stepping up to help out.

Wow. Minnesota has only 5 signed up so far! Used to register a month early. Economy and the nationals both stink together. Must be politically correct and blame it on the last guy in office! Ha, Ha, good thing we all like our NMTA guy!

It might be time to split the nationals up. East/ west with a three day shoot out final?
