US Grand Prix, World Trials Championship, April 26, Sequatchie, TN

Went up to this event Saturday - simply unbelievable what these world caliber riders can do on a motorcycle.

Will post more video later.

Yeah, I was seeing it in front of me...

...and still couldn't believe what I'd just seen...

I was going frame-by-frame thru one video and pulled this one off as a still. The rider literally leapt 10 feet across to scale a boulder that was more than 10 feet high. And made it look easy

Just amazing!

Thanks

That is great; I would love to attend one of those events with my son. I have shown him the videos and he too is amazed. Thanks for posting.

When and where is the next event(s)??

Next event? I am being told in two years, western US, Colorado I think.
Sorry if you missed this event, no video will do justice to seeing them in action. Seeing Fuji clean the waterfall section has to be the best ride I seen of the event. Everyone said the waterfall section could not be ridden, then Fuji cleaned it on his first attempt. Words can not explain the energy that was in the air for everyone watching his ride. A one point loop for Fuji, WOW. Nothing like that HRC engine tapping the rev limiter before a 10' jump straight up a vertical rock face. Go Fuji-Gas.
