Below are some recent comments we’ve received on our hosting of the USGP Trials World Championship/Wagner Cup. If you have feedback (compliments or criticism), contact us:
We had a good time and all you staff were very nice . It was a long trip from Iowa but worth it to see the World class riders . Thanks for putting on this event . – Wade Clark
Hi Ashley, Just to let you know, 6 of us came down from Mont-Tremblant in Québec to come to your event, we just had a great time. Thanks for all. – Pierre Brisson
Dear Ashley, I hope that the necessary arrangement after this fantastic event was not too difficult! You can be proud of the work which you made. I confirm you the satisfaction of the FIM Staff to have collaborated with the TTC Staff ! Looking forward to see you again soon, greetings. – Thierry Michaud, France
Ashley, we made it back to Canada today. Safe and sound, but a little tired. Thanks again for making our trip a huge success. We both had a great time, just loved Tennessee, and enjoyed meeting you all. – Ian and Wah Buttar
Hi Ashley, thanks so much to you, and everyone involved at the TTC for such wonderful hospitality, and an amazing event! – Stuart Preston
Hi just like to say thank you for the super weekend , thank you for the meal at the restaurant. I am back home after a total of 7400 KM. If you ever come in Canada in the east coast for vacation the door is open for you and your family. – Stephane Vallee
I came down with my two teenage daughters and had a wonderful time. My two daughters had a great time too, and you know how hard it is to impress teenage girls with the outdoors. I race outdoor MotoCross, and various other off road races, and have even been to an indoor trial, but was thoroughly impressed with the riders skills and conditioning, as well as with the facilities you had to offer. Thank you for putting on this event. We had an all around wonderful experience! – Eric Caldwell
Thanks to everyone at TTC for hosting the World Round again. Have been to every one and will continue to come watch the most amazing riders in the world. I sure hope the FIM eliminates the “no stop” rule as we came into it with an open mind and left wanting the rule abolished. Still a great event none the less and you guys did a great job hosting! – Tom Bledsoe
Hi Cat, Memorial Day weekend I really enjoyed the opportunity to work the World Trials Event. Also, the Dirt Rider magazine had an article that noted the Tennessee Knockout is one of the world’s toughest events. Very cool, and congratulations on that. I am looking forward to the event in August. – Reggie Wrinkle
As always, great job on the world round. This was the 3rd at TTC for my wife and I but we brought our daughter and 7 year old grandson. We all had a great time! Over the many years I have helped worked multiple Nationals in various jobs and know it is a lot of work. Thanks to all who helped in all areas. You did a GREAT job. Much appreciated! – Jay Decker
Ashley, What a weekend! I arrived Friday morning… and didn’t slow down until I got home (St Louis) Sunday night. This was the first opportunity I’ve had to spectate a world trails event. Let me say how much I enjoyed it. The team at the Trials Training Center knows how to put on an event. The layout for the sections was very good. Very easy for me to get to all the sections. All the sections were world class for challenge. Very fun to watch the riders. I hope you can host this event again soon. Anyway… just wanted to let you know. Job Well Done! Cheers! – Jeff Mueller
Dear Ashley, Belen and I really enjoyed meeting you at the trial. We have had many good weekends together. On our way home we decided that weekend was as much fun as we can remember. We were particularly impressed by the blue shirts. They were everywhere. We did not meet a single shirt who was not accommodating, polite, and helpful. Please pass along how special we thought they were. And you and your focused group of leaders were amazing. Never tired, obviously having fun, extraordinarily efficient, and all this while moving at the speed of light. We hope you will convey how deeply impressed we were. Please resign and come immediately to Mobile to run this medical school. The improvement would be amazing. Belen wants to send a special thanks to Darrell Davis. She really enjoyed their work together. Warm regards, – Wiltz Wagner
We didn’t have time over the weekend to take photos ourselves so as we become aware of the photos by others, we’ll link to them here. Thus far:
Shan Moore’s album of 39 photos on Trials and Enduro News
Vonda Roper’s album of 80 photos on Facebook
Laura Peters’ album of 21 photos on Facebook
Longtime mototrials competitor, importer and enthusiast Martin Belair posted this to the Trials Central forum and we got his permission to post it here:
I just want to say how great it was to have 1979 World Champ Bernie Schreiber visit the USGP this past weekend at the TTC. The response from the public was amazing. People lined up for 2 hours to get an autograph and to meet the man. Bernie was very gracious and took time to speak with everyone.
Throughout the weekend Bernie could not walk far without meeting a fan. People brought their scrapbooks and photo albums to show Bernie and to get them signed. I am sure that everyone that met Bernie this weekend now has a story to tell.
Bernie wanted his visit to benefit the US TdN team so all proceeds from the book signing, t-shirt and poster sales went to support Team USA. The generosity of the people was amazing. I can say that it was the biggest weekend fund raiser in US TdN history.
I also want to thank everyone that helped arrange a proper welcome and made Bernie’s visit a success. Dan Brown and his amazing TTC staff, Brad Baumert, Pete Croft, Vonda Roper, Jim Watson and everyone that worked the TdN booth.
Below is a link to a great story by Jake Miller on the FIM-Live website:
King Bernie is back in town

Thank you so much for inviting me to come and organizing accommodations.
