The National Trials Championships ARE HAPPENING at Mammoth Mountain! PRO PURSE IS GUARANTEED. The USA Cyling CEO himself, Sean Petty–USAC CFO, NORBA and the Mammoth organizers have come thru big for us. The National Trials Championship will be held as scheduled, exactly per the information put out earlier! Whew! We just finished two days of high drama mega-trials defensatory risky grandstanding! As many of you know NORBA granted the trials community our own organization last February; the United Biketrials Association – a name originally proposed by Brisa owner Roger Rodrigeuz. JP and I had to lay out how we intended to organize, fund and operate the new association since we would now be wholly responsible for supporting ourselves separate from NORBA’s umbrella. That’s where the National Trials Series came from, the euro-based team training and why we were unable to have pro purse at all the events in our first year. Anyway, since we are now a separate organization Mammoth has to work with us and not NORBA and we said our riders are telling us they want pro purse at a minimum and that’s what would get us there and nothing less. Mammoth flipped and called NORBA. NORBA called us. We called the USA Cycling CEO. CEO makes calls. Mammoth calls NORBA again. NORBA calls JP and hammers out a purse for us when they were under no obligation to help us-YEAH, NORBA! I’m telling you, this new CEO Girard Bisceglia and the new NORBA management are really doing an incredible job supporting trials this year. NOW WE HAVE TO SHOW THEM WHO WE ARE! We’ve got pro purse, class winner jerseys for ALL classes, medals 5 deep, an actual prize list and National Championship jerseys. And Mammoth isn’t too shabby a place to do some sick trialsin! SO EVERYONE SHOULD COME that can come and show Mammoth that they need to be careful about what they wish for because we’re gonna TRIALS THAT TOWN DOWN, BABY! Full Comp info at the top of this forum. See you there!
