    Would a mountain bike be worth bringing to get from one section to another or do you think bicycles will be banned?

    There is a steep road. I would, at least it would be fast coming down. Plus you could show us some moves.

    We're still wondering if we will go. That problem of not being able to camp where the event is we are getting hung up on. How to get around, and no Casita to come back to in the heat of the day.

    I should go check to see if there is any new info.

    It would suck to miss a world round, even if with the blowtorch up the arse rules :-)

    Are you 100% sure you can't camp in the area? Call Mike and clear it up. How hard is that?

    Why don't you volunteer to check for a day and ask if you can camp with the club?

    That is the problem with modern trials. Everyone needs a spot and most need 45 ft just for two people. Just not enough to go around. If you are a spectator, Kingman is by far the best choice . There is plenty of desert, but not close by. I will probably get my fat rear kicked out of the pool.

    CAT booked the entire park. If you want to camp in the park you need to talk with Mike. Probably going to be doing a little checking on one day and get the other to wonder around. I volunteered, I have a camp spot, I'm going to be paying the club (not the campground) for the spot.

    Me, my wife, my Father-In-Law, and another friend rode our Dual Sport bikes up to the top of the Mountain in 2006. What a beautiful place! Just wish that I could make it to the Trials event.

    One end of the restaurant has a big window so that you can watch the Elk.

    This is the new ride format. How they manage the twenty minute break I have no idea.
    Making it easier for fans to follow the action Qualification and the Trial itself will take place at the same time in each and every country, with the main event starting at 9.00hrs Sunday in Europe and at 9.00hr Saturday / Sunday in Japan / USA. Qualification is at 15.00hrs on Saturday in Europe and 15.00hrs on Friday outside Europe. Each event will consist of two laps of fifteen sections, with the riders allowed a maximum of two and a half hours to complete each lap, never more time and now with a twenty-minute forced break between laps so both riders and fans can grab some well-deserved refreshments. The winners will be on the podium at 15.45hrs prompt so the family can be home in good time

    2-1/2 hours per loop with two loops sounds reasonable.

    2.5 hours = 150 minutes. 15 sections. 10 minutes per section including riding the loop, walking the section, waiting for a turn to ride. And the ride itself.

    World riders cannot walk the sections, it`s a five if they enter the section on event day. They all walk the sections together on Friday. They also self clerk the sections. But you are still correct, 10 minutes is not much with the long sections they usually have.

    Thinking about it that way it does seem rushed. And more can't do this or that rules! No waking a section event day? The sortamaybesomtimes stop rules have resulted in some Isle of man length sections.

    I need to experience a world round today. It's been too long since the last one 28 years ago.

    Is that a new rule? They were walking sections event day at the world round in RI two years ago.

    Did you see them walking in the section? Between the ribbons? They can look, but not enter.
