Event #9 – Results Posted

10/9/2018

Saturday: 45 Riders, 15 Volunteers   (Last Year 42 Riders)
Sunday: 40 Riders, 18 Volunteers   (Last Year  41 Riders)

Note, Worker Points (WPs) have been assigned for all the Work Parties, but WPs have NOT been assigned for those that worked the  NATIONAL at this time.  The results show this column shaded gray to emphasize that.

Congratulations to the following who have clinched their Championship this past event:  Bryce Pophal (MASTER), Dave Taylor (ADV B), Chris Seitz (SI B), Creighton Todhunter (SPT B), Paul Clark (MB-1), Sydney Taylor (JR-3).  

There are still some compelling stories leading up to the last event of the year.  Howard’s 5 year run as the ADV A Champion is coming to an end as a new champion will be crowned in either Trevor or Filip.  In the SI A class, Jackson and Brandt are tied.   Barry usually has his INT A Championship clinched by now, but Brian and Scott have competed well enough to force Barry to show up and score some points to win it for his 6th straight year.  Casen has 1pt lead over Connor in the JR-4 class.

Hope to see you all at the Spooky Trial in couple of weeks.

Scottish Six Days – Go Adrian, Jon, and Bert!!!!

5/8/2018

For some, this is a Bucket List type of event.  How does 30 “different” sections every day with Day 1 being a 71 mile Loop sound or Day 5 as a 96 mile loop?  For Adrian, this has been a way of life; Adrian managed to hook Jon Berlin as he’s gone back multiple times now.  Check out the sighting of our very own PITS members out on the trail.  Check out the official website for all the RESULTS and awesome videos of this spectacular event.

What a great turnout.  This was our Largest Saturday turnout and another huge turnout for Sunday.  It was a challenging trial as expected.  The Schaad Sunday Loop is the BEST LOOP that we will ride all year.  Man, that was fun!!!  Cow Pile is next and that Sunday Loop is pretty incredible too, so if you haven’t been to Cow Pile in Petaluma, make sure you get there next month.

Wow…Burrows Ranch can really handle the deluge of rainfall it got all week.  The weather cleared up just in time and made for a Great Trial.  This was the weekend we were supposed to compete at Prairie City, which would have been a sloppy mess and no where near as fun.  Kudos to The Bills for setting up during that week of rainfall.  This was our Largest Turnout for Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday: 57 Riders, 17 Volunteers
