I'm gonna blame it all on the trailsmasters

Glad to hear it. I really wish I could get her more (out of the) saddle time. She said it's frustrating to come back to camp, feel like you rode well, and discover you're in 4th place. Boy, don't I know that feeling...

Too bad it turned out to be worse than we thought. That sure was an awkward section even dry. After you left I decided to ride Expert to give Devon some company. Amazing the choices you make thanks to mr. coors. Hope you heal fast. Bob R.

The hardest part, except for trying to move with an immobilized left leg, was watching everybody go riding after the snow melted...
Sorry to hear about the leg Chris. Looked painful when I showed up. I was hoping it was just sprained or something and a few days of rest and ice would have had you up and riding again.

X 2! ^^^
Sunday's sections were set in the same spots as last year. Not acceptable when you have a venue that Lake Fork offers. When a novice lady gets to the second section and starts crying because she is frustrated, scared and "in over her head", that is just not acceptable. Another lady refused to even ride section 2. We have lost riders like Pete Baldwin, Eugene Waggnoer, Bob Micket, Mike McClanahan, Chuck Sutton and Dave Cole, Eric Tidmore and Brandon Nafus, etc,; it pains me to see this and hurts the club. Sections must be fun, challenging and with content & venue. Being a trialsmaster is a very difficult job and requires vision and much work. Having riders hurt due to difficulty of a section should make the TM pause for a while and wonder how can I make the sections great? Not easy but it can be done. I hate seeing veterans like Chris and James hurt riding a section. Tripping over a bike stand in the dark and under the influence of adult beverages is entirely acceptable.

Rant over, the snow on Saturday morning was epic as I thought it would be.

Boy, I though I had a good F**** you face. I'd have to go get my baseball bat, if you looked at me like that ...

ridenm, sorry to hear about your injury. I'm in the process of finding out if I need surgery on my left ankle. My XR 650 R bucked me off at 30 mph... I guess a bike injury is a hell of a lot better than a work injury.

Oh I'm a pussy cat unless...... Seriously, I was a bouncer in college, I was a negotiator not an enforcer. In high school I would rather fight than eat. But if I get into trouble, I just call in Brewtus.

Been riding in the evening with the boy.



He kind of looks like he's in MX mode here. Almost time for a bigger bike.

Went for another play at the Practice club on Sunday... a full 4 hours or more of riding and knee all ok.
I was keeping fairly sensible though...

It doesn't look like you are wearing any braces?

I remember fondly of many regional events in Oklahoma. Shan Moore used to host events in Sapulpa and the tape would be green and orange for Halloween. Should be an awesome event. Pics please.
