Brandon Wince on a section called "Heartbreak Hill"
From Dave Rhodes
With more than 50 riders on each of the two days of competition, plus a dozen vintage riders on Monday, there was good support for the first two rounds of the 2013 WTC national championships.
The championship rounds were held at Scotch Creek, BC on the Victoria long weekend at a brand new location. The original course that had been planned for Summerland (BC) had to be cancelled due to potential land-use problems. Thanks to the local Shuswap Trials riders, the event turned out to be a huge successs, with competitors from all over Western Canada during the three-day weekend. The competitions also included a vintage round on Monday. There were only six DNF's during the entire weekend As can be seen from the results, the competition was very close, with Brandon Wince and Thomas Cordner swapping places in the Champ class. We saw some amazing rides over the weekend as the varios classes tackled sections that had never been ridden before in this new area. We will be posting a full gallery of pics on the Outlaw Trialsport website. A big thankyou goes to Tom and Peggy Zinck who allowed us to use their land -- the future certainly looks bright for trials in the North Okanagan. |
