Saturday the fiancee and I decided to do some organizing. Ok well, I really wasn't involved in the decision :wink:. But I did manage to come across this:

Image

Flipping through the pages, I realized why I had saved it. There was a report of the 86 NORBA Nationals here at Edgemont Ranch in Durango.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Quick email to Ned to learn the route, and it was planned for Sunday morning. Woke up to a chilly(3 deg celsius) morning. Master of Puppets on the ipod and off I went.

Image

Edgemont is about a 20 minute ride northeast of town.

Image

Ned said the route would be hard to find, but I learned quickly it would be impossible. 20 years brings progress.. houses, roads, etc. I managed to take a few shots, but nothing that resembled the former race trail.

Image

Anyways, enjoy the scans at least.

'86 - was that at the time where everyone had to ride trials as part of the US champs? (or did I just dream up this fact?).

we're not jealous at all Ameybrook!

Nice pictures, just a shame you couldn't find the old trails. Those stills look very similar some scenes in the film 'Rockhopper South'? (My copy disappeared in the post enroute to Wu-T so can't check :cry: )
