    I saw on your web-site that you invite all to your steering committee meetings. That's awesome! :thumb

    The only major rule change to mention is that lowers will ride 8 sections x 4 loops. Uppers will still be 10 x 3.

    The updated supplemental rules are on the site as well. Link: 2019 RMTA Supplemental Rules

    Updated schedule - we have made the final event at Thorpe Gulch a 2-day event. Should be awesome camping in late September near Lake George!

    I'm planning to be there! It'll be my first RMTA event.

    It sounds like one of my two riding buddies can make it over too. I'll start working on the second one today.

    Awesome event! I even managed to drag along a couple of my riding buddies, and they echoed that sentiment. I almost had a third, oh well... He really missed out.

    Great sections, great location, great people, [mostly] great weather, and a great drive. A little different from the WMTA and MSTA meets I've been riding. I liked the separate sections for uppers and lowers which, makes remembering your line and gates a lot easier: I felt like I always knew where I was and spent no time reading the cards. I would say that this event was set a little harder than the average WMTA and MSTA, which I enjoyed a lot and helped to cement the progress I've made in the last month. The number of people that turned out was probably my biggest surprise, I've gotten pretty used to have what is basically a private trial (20 to 40 riders all spread out). It was really awesome to see so many people out riding trials at a normal meet.

    I can now say that all of my local-ish (4-hour radius) clubs are top notch and hopefully I'll add NMTA to that list soon. A+ job to everyone involved and I look forward to riding with ya'll next year.

    I took 67 home because Google was saying there was a 40 minute slowdown on I-25. I'm glad I did because it was peaceful, it's been such a long time since I've been able to enjoy driving.

    Good riding Calvin - I set some tough turns in Amateur and it looked like you handled them well!

    What is the kids scene like at rmta? I have a 5yr old on an Oset and would love to get him into some comps with a crew of similar sized humans. If I can make the logistics work I'll compete as well :)

    The kid scene is good. There are always a couple kids and at some events more for them to compete against. They moved the time this year so the kids ride at 8:45/9 and the other classes start at 10. Thus, no conflict for you watching and riding.

    Here's the preliminary 2020 RMTA Schedule

    Only notable rule change for next season = lower classes will ride 3 loops of 9 sections (instead of 4 loops of 8).

    FYI - the RMTA website has been remodeled to be more mobile device friendly. Consequently, if you have any pages bookmarked you need to delete those.

    Same url: http://rockymountaintrials.org

    Also - BIG shout out to @rokhopr for coordinating a Regional Trials Calendar! There's a link on our schedule page right above the RMTA events. Let me know if you see any erroneous info!
