Let's go! World Champ Trials May 25, 2013
I will be leading a ride to Sequatchie, TN for the FIM World Trials Event on Saturday, May 25. We will leave the Campbell Station Cracker Barrel at 8:30AM (kickstands up). The ride to the Trials Training Center is ~130 miles and will take about 3 hours. I will try to stop once or twice for fuel and/or bathroom breaks. The event actually lasts two days. I recommend that anyone going take clothes and shoes that are comfortable for walking. Some sections have been real hikes in years past. Usually there are a few vendors, but I suggest taking drinks and snacks to ensure you have some. There is an entry fee of $20.
Everyone is free to walk to any of the sections and stay as long or as short as they like. The return ride will be less planned, less formal, and possibly more direct depending on time. I don't expect everyone to return together. Some may elect to stay overnight, but I suggest checking on the camping availability or nearby accommodations. I hope to be home by dark.
If you've never seen trials or have only seen amateurs or demonstrations, this is a "must see" event. These guys can traverse obstacles and do things on bikes in places where I can't walk or climb (and never could). You will be amazed; guaranteed.

Jerry D. has Rene's UGR book, thinks it's great!
"Choose gravel or tarmac roads, and flank them with wild animals, magnificent sanddunes, deserts and waterfalls. Rest comfortably at our carefully selected game lodges surrounded by world class hospitality and stories from the days' ride. Let us carry your luggage and your logistical worries, leaving you to immerse yourself in one of the least populated areas on earth - and one of the most spectacular! "
