    Trials Inc (Ohio area) peeps will know Steve Williams. He's been riding non-stop since the 1970s. He won the SR-A Championship this year. A good friend of mine since the 1970s and a really smooth rider.

    Jon Rentschler has been riding Trials off and on since the 1970s also. He is from the Cleveland Ohio area. (He has had both hips replaced! Still doing it!)

    At the Bloomington Indiana 2-day last month.
    I've been suffering with the right knee since about May.
    I was really suffering on Saturday, could barely walk the sections or start the bike. But I did manage to win SR that day. Got off to a really bad start with some fives on the first loop. (missing arrows) but two clean loops at the end pulled me back to number one.

    On Sunday it ended with a DNF. I was about done, no amount of Advil was gonna fix me. I was determined and I got out there on the first loop.
    About half way around loop one, I had a crash on the loop on a slimy turn and Jon Rentschler was right behind me and he ran to try to pull the bike off of me as it had me pinned to the ground.
    He says: "This is really weird Jim, your footpeg is stuck inside your boot. Give me a second here to figure this out."
    I said: "Why is my head also pinned to the ground!"
    He says: "This is weird Jim, your helmet visor is wedged under a root!"

    That was it, I was done for the day. Later, they had to help me get out of my lawn chair. (Finally went to the bone doctor last month and got the full workup, and it's nothing serious thankfully, some arthritis and he suggested no shots or surgical work yet, but to be taking the glucosamine and chondroitin and low impact exercise and of course, lose weight, and it is getting a lot better)

    On Saturday I rode this muddy rocky creek bed section like I owned it. It had a slimy tight uphill and small ledge left turn at the end with mud covered loose stones. Oddly, this is where I felt perfect, just knew how to do it. Danced around feet-up on that sucker every loop....

    I didn't take that photo, it was GG Promo. Not sure of its origin. I see no reason not to share, especially as Geoff works for them.

    Really impressive. And what you can't see is the other side of the rock there was just a little landing area that requires stopping and hopping to turn right toward the exit. Such precision needed to get the bike up that rock and land it *just* right otherwise the rider (Gary in this case) wouldn't make it up the rock, or would overshoot it and go over the tape.

    edit: I rethought my comment. For you guys it may be less impressive because you can stop the bike on a dime. But for anyone new to the sport observing it is like magic that anyone can have the courage and skills to do this. Not Toni Bou levels perhaps but still amazing.
