Black Friday Ride @ Prairie City

11/23/2016

Traditionally, a bunch of us head out to PC on Black Friday, Nov 25th.  Come on out and re ride some of the Turkey Trial sections.  If you’re new and just want to check us out, come on out and stop anyone of us to get some information; most of us will let new riders try our bikes.  The weather has been good all week and should be nice on Friday as well.  This is NOT a SACPITS sponsored event.

Saturday (VB): 34 riders, 12 volunteers

Sunday (Class A): 35 riders, 14 volunteers

A special thanks to MIKE’S CYCLES for providing so many prizes for the Raffle on Sunday’s Event. If you’re in the Placerville Area, stop in and say hi (and buy something).

The weather kept some of our fair weather members away. It’s too bad because although it rained lightly off and on Saturday, the sections were great and everyone seemed to have a great time. We had no rain on Sunday until the Awards Ceremony. The Organizers (Shawn, Joel, Ralph) opted to cut the number of sections from 10 to 8 in hopes to get the riders completed before the rains and it worked. The traction was better than you might have thought after riding on Saturday and warming up on Sunday morning; it tacked up pretty well.

We had some of the closest battles this year as two Championships (MB-1 and JR-3) were decided by the Head-to-Head Tiebreaker.  On Sunday, Bryce pushed Martyn beating him on Cleans (18-15) but Martyn edged Bryce by 2 points to retain the Expert Championship.  Robby edged out Joe on their battle on Saturday.  Dick and Marty kept trading wins all year long but MARTY holds on and wins that Championship.

What a great Season….The competition is getting better up and down the classes.  Can’t wait until next season already!!!

Oh yeah…look over your WorkerPts.  I started Redistributing your Family Points where it made sense to me, but you need to look it over and send us an email on any corrections.  There is still one more event Training Day on Saturday Dec 3rd to get more points and also the JOBS which will be approved by the Board.

2017 NATIONAL SERIES EVENT @ BOREAL POSTPONED UNTIL 2018

11/2/2016

The 2017 AMA/NATC Moto Trials National Championship Series Event @ Boreal Ski Resort has been postponed until the summer of 2018.  Sacramento PITS is committed to hosting the finest National Trials event possible, but due to construction that will be taking place over the summer of 2017 at the event site, the Sacramento PITS Board of Directors made the decision to postpone the event. The construction would have impacted access to the main riding areas, close off the shuttle route for spectators, and compromised the parking area as it will be occupied by heavy equipment.

A special thanks goes out to Martin Belair (SCTA), Adrian Lewis & Kevin Davey (SACTOPITS) who brought this series to life and also Mandy Lewis and Rich & Michelle Fullen and all of the volunteers and let’s not forget all of the riders including those that came from Oregon, Utah, Nevada, and Southern California.
