What trials obstacles can you find in Omaha? Maybe piles of corn cobs?
There are definitely piles of something :eek1
Scoffing at us flatlanders huh? (LOL).
The trials club grounds, if you looked at a map and went almost straight south with your finger on the map, out of Omaha, then came straight east from Lincoln Ne, with your other finger until they intersected... That point would be damn near at Nehawka Nebraska.
The website and directions can be found MWTA Club Website and facebook Without double checking (meaning from memory) on that map, about 4 miles at most north of there, and about 6 miles west I think it is, on 84th Street (dirt road), heading north just past a wine tasting vinyard, at the point where the dirt road crosses a railroad and a creek is the entrance to an old Rock Quarry. Which has Nationals type terrain, I assure you. They hosted it in 2011 I think it was, and was in the running for this year (2014).
I assure you we can find more than wheat chaff and corn cobs, to take points from you mountainous region riders, plus you "cant handle" the Full horsepower of your bikes, I bet, when you get to low elevations like out here, lol. Just like I couldn't stand how my 300 ran like a 125 at Sipapau? new mexico, lol...
Hey Sting, wasn't meaning to cast any negative pall on the center of the country (just maybe the fact that we have to be some where against my will ).
Actually, we were in Bennington NE, and I thought it looked like there would be some very entertaining riding nearby, and even better pheasant hunting (but I didn't get to do any of that either). Bear in mind that even if it was flat as a pancake, if you mark out sections I would find a way to make em hard, even if they weren't
Everything I teases about above, was in Fun, hmmm. looking to see you probably drove close enough to see my house when you went by, depending on which way you went to NE.
I have kin in Omaha. We made a road trip that coincided with the Nebraska National. Kids got to ride with Mr. Bill and I got a tick.
Good times fer sure.
Alright you whiners, Garrett just checked out San Ysidro (on his way to Farmington) no snow. Which means get ready for our last event of the year! Our trialsmasters promise not to disappoint, so get out there!!
Gonna try out my bionic knee tomorrow to se if I can go on Sunday
Nothing that I am interested in.
You have fun and be sure and take some pics of all 20 (maybe) riders for me.
Here is what a club does that is not in denial:
........or, you can wait until you are at the gate Sunday morning to see if it's OK. :huh
There is nothing macho about scoring with temps in the teens and then riding in 20 degree weather with wind. I have a word for it, but macho is not it.
It is unfortunate that the TMs have put so much time into setting sections to have bad weather happen (even though it is not un-likely for December) but it would be a good bet that we had more riders out over Thanksgiving than there will be this Sunday.
C.A.T. Trialsmasters are wimps!
Sunday is supposed to be great in Arizona!
I had to look. 70% chance of snow on Sat, but Sunday will be great!!
We seriously need to re-group on the December event. We have this same conversation every year and turn-out usually sucks no matter what the weather eventually ends up doing. For what????
Nope, I do this sport for fun, when it's not fun, I'll do something else.
Scoring and riding in extreme cold is not fun.
I`ll post a picture of me getting a tan while scoring sunday!
I post one of me not! It should be mid-60 in my shop but not much sun!
You should ride master and get 2nd or maybe champ and get 1st.
It should be easy to podium in expert as well!
I never said anything about riding!!
Been practicing in the snow for 2 weeks for this event!
Seriously Gordy, you need to bring Jake out, he'll have fun.
Come by and get him. Seriously.
NMTrialsGuy says there's a little known rule about a five point penalty in the standings for practicing between events.
Just got off the phone with Lance, who is out at San Ysidro right now. The club policy is that if the highway is open, the trial is on. The road in is clear, there's no snow on the ground, and "it's a balmy 28 degrees." I assume he meant Fahrenheit.
I won't be going out even if I wanted to brave the cold, because my father-in-law has repo'd the trailer we were borrowing to haul bikes.
Hey ya'll, I'm a little ways up north but am looking to get into trials without spending a ton on my first bike. Is the club website for sale section updated pretty regularly? There is a 03 Cota on there I'm interested in but want to know if it is still a relevant ad before I call the guy.
I also tried to correspond with this fellow but he hasn't gotten back to me...
Sorry, not sure who is updating the web page this year. The '98 Monty looks like it's worth hunting down.
