Spectator viewing

The rocky stream beds with high hillsides provide natural, amphitheater-type seating areas for spectators.

Fan catches foul ball Spectator catches flying clutch lever

IMG_3534 In Loop 1, Section 2 yesterday, one of the Junior class riders slipped off the angled ledge at the start and his bike smashed to the rocks below.

As the left handlebar hit the ground, it snapped the clutch lever and sent it spinning 20 feet or more into the air with a loud ‘ping.’ 

This spectator yelled out "I got it" and made a one-handed catch, earning a loud roar of approval from the assembled crowd. (Apologies for the fuzzy photo… I had to zoom way in.)

Big crowds, perfect weather

I’m heading back out to the sections for more photos. Until then, this will have to suffice!

Invasion of the Canucks

Andrew Blane and Tom Doroshenko IMG_3420

I met Canadian Tom Doroshenko at Trials Training Days last month (on the right in left photo with TTC instructor Andrew Blane). He returned this week with many of his trials-riding buddies and they had a ring-side seat on the porch of one of the TTC cabins for today’s practice session and subsequent afternoon of relaxation. In the group photo, Tom is the only one with his pants on. No wonder border-crossings have been tightened up.
