Here is how to get there.

From I-40 take exit 22. Go north to first intersection of Hasler Valley Rd and Miyamura.

Go east on Hasler Valley Rd (north frontage road to I-40) for 1.2 miles,

look for big red sign on left (Gallup OHV/Mx Park). Take dirt road one mile back to park.

Well, final Gallup NMTA event on April 7th update....

All 8 Upper Class sections are set! Took some clearing of brush and rock and a lot of searching, but in a big park, we ended up with a fairly short loop. 3-4 sections are very spectator friendly and within walking distance of the pits, 3 sections on top of the ridge above the pit area and one in a small canyon about 1/2 mile north of the parking area.

The locals seem pretty excited to have a trials event in the Gallup area and are curious to see what trials competition is all about. We were asked at dinner Sunday night if we were with the "trials group" by a waiter! They made a new banner for events at the park with our event first on the list!


Hoping for a decent sized local spectator turnout for our event too!



A little look at the terrain...

Sneak peek of Section 4 (within walking distance of pits)


Section 1 - Rock Crawler Hill!
The people of Gallup OHV Park built this road near the pits as a challenge section for serious jeeps and rock crawlers. We didn't see any reason not to throw ribbon up it! It will be kind of a 'Micket's Gulch' type of section with not many gates...just find a way through the boulders to the top. I'm sure the locals are curious to see how trialers do on the boulders compared to their mega $$ rigs!


Entrance to Section 5 on the ridge top. Yes, I rode many of the Sportsman lines on the XR100 on Monday so no whining! Even cleaned one of them! We need a pit bike class! (Could this thing tackle big guys on TY80's? Hmmmmmm..... :-)


The general rock mess known as Section 2! Looks easy, but the dirt is loose!!


Beginning of Section 7


Big Al 'riding in' the EX entrance rock to Section 5.


Al pondering Nate & Sam's line on Section 4.


"There's a Semi line in there somewhere!" Entrance to Section 4.



That's the preview!

Hope everyone can make it out. Weather looks decent at this point if not a bit 'breezy'! Plenty of trails to ride big dirt bikes on Saturday, so if you got 'em, bring 'em!
See everyone this weekend!!

I also want to thank everyone for coming out! It was a really fun event...like some of the ones when I first joined this club. Good times! Was awesome to have a good turnout from the Arizona club as well!!

I got a ton of photos...a couple of them even good!
