Gordy won't hit Novice again until his 80's
The.Beta 200 is SOLD!
It was a good one.
Was that the stolen bike recovered?
I ran across LATA records when I was looking through files that Bud and Bob Clancy had. I *think* Lance's dad had something to do with running the club, but I could be mistaken.
I'll take that as a 'no'.
Worthless corrupt cops. No Help Whatsoever.
It’s amazing that they will shoot innocent people but show them a criminal caught in the act and they are “too busy”. Fuck all of them.
I understand completely. I was very disappointed that the various agencies we reached out to did nothing, when the case was basically handed to them on a platter.
That new TRS will be awesome
Yes. Gordy will be in a commercial starting the bike with t
Tom B. was riding an Alpina in`74 with NMTA. 1974 was a very interesting year. Tom Sr. has done alot through the years, but I believe LATA had been started by other people. This flyer had Salazar and Mike M. moving up to Semi. Mike Monroy was president (Mike and Dave Garduno opened the first Papa Felipe`s in Coronado center in 1977.)
Monroy`s daughter was riding powder puff. I was riding a heavy Montesa. Ron Schmidt went on to open a Bultaco dealership in Los Alamos.
Awesome history stuff!!
What was Bill Hanson doing on an Ossa?!!
My Ossa was the best ever! It was an explorer with MAR tank and seat. Bill was taught by Leo Kurowski who rode an Ossa.
Since your enjoying a little history, I`ll continue. Back then we had mandatory advancement. So many 1st` places and x amount of points Davey Burke from Colorado kept coming down and kicking my butt. Finally Elliot Schultz came and gave us a trials school. He stayed at my home for four days. On Saturday my dad bought his spare Ossa. On Sunday I gave Burke a little pay back. Dave Burke went on to win the UTE CUP three times.
PS, in these old flyers showed only the people that placed. It was not the total riders. We were running 60 to 100 riders sometimes.
Didn't know that...interesting! I thought the turnout was just way lower then!
I also didn't realize Bobby Nafus was almost at the Hanson & Kurtz level back then...pretty cool!
Bobby was a good rider. Bill and Greg was killing the old Experts, so they quit riding, Bobby was just pulling third. I was still only 14.
So, no morning and afternoon back then it appears since you didn't start until 11am. Were all the classes in the same sections? Powder Puff to Expert?
Semi and expert rode the same line. That is why you see the state championship scores. I remember scoring lowers even then. So the loops were actually short in the early years. Novice/enduro/powder puff the same.
Another strange note. Kurtz, Shoemaker and I went to the same church. I can remember being an Acolyte in my full riding gear. Of course the robe covered everything but my boots.
