Waiting, Waiting , Waiting...Again!


Last weekend at LEOR in Marion, Il. the Mid West trials guys held AHRMA's 2 day national trials in conjunction with ITSA's Mid West El Dorado Regional Championship.
The trials was just right...great weather, fun sections and good friends.
The problems were produced by AHRMA and their stubborn need to hold trials events after their cross country events. Never finishing on time and holding the start of the trials event until they are happy gets a lot old. Sunday saw riders leaving to head home before the trials started. Not good for our sport.
Thanks to all who worked so hard to put this event on. Your efforts are appreciated.As far as riding AHRMA events and being their red-headed step child we should consider not doing this again.
LEOR is a great site and should be considered for hosting a championship round of ITSA's North American Twinshock Championship.
Imagine that, a 2 day trials weekend all about TRIALS!

    Yeah, the schedule and the delays made for a couple of long days and I don't blame the guys who pulled the plug early. Putting that aside though, the Mid-West club put on a good Trial and the guys a LEOR always treat us like they're glad we came. I had a blast, even though I dropped about 20 times as many points as the Guru did. I think that JAMES must have a gyroscope working in it somewhere. 3 points in 2 days of rding? Come on......

    That would explain the strange noise that came from motor when I rode the James... a sound that only the rider can hear...... its all clear now...
