This is the first time I have ever seen trials riding. All I can say is "wow"
I can't see how it's humanly possible for Cris to do the vertical leaps that he does, nor have that much awareness and control of his bike. Absolutely incredible. I'm not sure how many people noticed, but after the little volunteer demonstration that I was lucky enough to take part in (and even luckier that I was unscathed), I had Cris' tire mark on my forehead. While hopping on his back wheel, the guy lowered his front wheel down and just "kissed" my forehead with it. Holy control! I wasn't as nervous about that as I was he brought his front wheel down over my member/package
Littlebike - Thanks for putting this thing on. I'm going to try to make your trials competition, too, as a spectator. The demo bike you had seemed pretty affordable, though...hmmmm...
It was nice meeting people from the BB - Sherpaboy, Steve Kinley, Dan Harrison, Todd Scott, HID Kevin, Littlebike Brian McNamara & April. I didn't meet Average_Mike, but someone pointed him out to me. I didn't realize he was a young kid (young's relative...I'm about to turn 32). Average_Mike - I was quite impressed with your trials abilities, too!
Thanks to everyone who helped put together this great event. I had an incredible time.
P.S. - I also picked up a low-budget crankset w/rings for $1.50 at the swap meet...how cool is that?
