My boss sent this to me the beginning of the week but I just got around to posting it because he sent it in Windows Media format. I was a little worried about chewing up too much of my bandwidth if I hosted it. Go Clipless posted a link to this YouTube version so I don’t have to worry about the bandwidth.
Back in the early 90’s when the Colorado Off Road Points Series was a 10 race series and all but one was 2 days of racing, I tried trials riding since I could generally do it after the circuit race. I was single and had plenty of time waiting for the next day’s cross-country race. I was pretty good at getting through technical sections that didn’t require hopping. I never got good at hopping. I won some beginner category trials competitions but never made it past that. It was amazing to watch guys like Hans Rey jumping all over the place.
