VBR sounds fun, used to go to Duluth semi regularly to ride in their trials when I was new to the sport. I'll have to try to make it someday again.

I'm posting up cause I'm very excited to be going to the Trials de Nations in France. I will be part of the Team Canada as a minder. Taking off on the 4th of September. I'll try to post some pics when I get a chance.

Congrats on getting to the Trials de Nations. Pretty prestigious event.
I'm sure you'll have a blast!

Holy heat stroke BatMan

It was 30 c at 10am leaving Duluth with high humidity, sweated a bucket putting on my socks!. No rain at all but the temps hit over 34C in some spots but then would drive into a day fog and the temperature would drop to 17-18 in a matter of a couple hundred meters.

Sitting at my daughters house drinking a pail of water. Did not drink enough water over the last 24 hrs and think i may have a touch of heat stroke, but am recovering.

A good Very Boring Rally, Trials action was really cool, you have to see these pro and expert class guys to believe what they can go thru. Met lots of great people from the ADV group and beyond. Will definitly be going back in 2018

VBR: Looks like the Canada Camp would have been a barrel of laughs. Wish I could have made it. I ended up taking in some local race action instead.

Smoking hot day for Motocross! Watching from a nice shaded spot would do the trick

Very cool. Excited for you. This year has been too busy for me but I do plan on taking you up on the offer to come up and see what the sport and area are all about.

I think I have finally dried off since our last ride. Ready to try it again but hopefully with a few thousand less gallons of water.

On the way home. Temps much more reasonable today and lots of water breaks. Ignace visitor centre is a nice stop with shade, restrooms and cool ponds, fish, fountains

The southerners made it home from the VBR today after just over 2600 klicks, we some how managed to skirt the rain today through southern Michigan and stayed dry all day. It was good to see everyone, I had a great time and really enjoyed my first time watching trials. Hope to see you all again down the road somewhere, I,ll see what I have for pic.s later.

Cheers, Todd
