Saturday morning bright and early (almost) we headed up to Donner Ski Resort as we heard a rumor that it had snowed. There I go, off track again.
The AMA National Trials were this weekend at Donner. We arrive about 10:30am and picked up the group at the 3rd section.
Some rules for spectators:
Please stand outside the section boundry
Please be careful not to knock rocks into a section (??)
Do not talk to the riders
Dogs must be on leash
Do not assist a rider
Then for the riders, they are scored by losing points:
Footing once 1 point
Footing twice 2 points
Footing more than twice 3 points
Moving backwards 5 points
Dead engine, with support 5 points
Handlebars touch the ground 5 points
There are more but you get the idea.
Ok here we go.
You will see two different angles on the pictures, Trudy stayed above the action for shots & I satyed down in the dirt & rocks to shoot looking up.
