Super Finale to the 2011 CMA Trials Season

2011 Muskeg Trial competitors
Muskeg Trial near Cremona was well received by competitors.  New area offered loads of natural terrain obstacles. 

Rob Healy, 2011 Advanced Champion
After securing 2011 Advanced Championship, Rob Healy stepped up to the Expert class against 2011 Champ, Stephen Foord.  Intermediate class was super close with points.  Only 4 point spread between Max and Mark and a tie for 3rd between Glen and Aaron.  Pressure was certainly on in this class.  Junior also closely matched with host, Rob Norton taking first with Lexi and Jeff close behind.  Whether dirtbikes or trials bikes, these 3 are always battling....that is the fun of competition.  SuperVet class saw host, Dale out front ahead of Ken, who recovering from an arm injury, just couldn't stay away for yet another trial.  Well, now you can rest that arm during the winter and be ready for the 2012 season!

Stephen Foord
Oct. 2nd CMA Wildrose Trial Review  

RESULTS - http://db.tt/sJhp9y2
The new Endurocross track at Wildrose MX Park offered new sections for trials fans!
Stephen & Ray marked out a 10 sections from Youth to Expert level.  Everyone was challenged with new rock sections, culverts and really BIG rock sections.  Nothing but adding to an already fun trials area.  

Stephen finished 1st with 9pts, followed by Shane 2nd with 38pts.
Doug & Rob battled in the Advanced class finishing with only 9 point spread.
New 2011 Intermediates were challenged but closely matched with Glen out riding Aaron by 20pts.  But didn't bother Aaron...he just kept on smiling all day.
Great to have some new riders in the Junior class...even a couple girls in the mix.  Jarrett all the way from Grand
New to trials, Brittany Wilson
