MOTOMOTO: The Big Thanks!

What a weekend! Our intrepid Pointskeeper/Scorekeeper, Eric Mattson, before the finger incident.Two perfect days, with a classic rain shower hitting exactly as we were wrapping up, as the weather gods smiled upon us. Two hard-fought days, with only a couple of trips to Temecula Regional thrown in.

A HUGE thanks to all who made it happen, starting with Marcus Miller, outgoing SDTR President. Thank you for always pouring your heart, and sweat, into every event. Thanks to Jared Malmquist and John Russo of Motoworld, for ALL the amazing prizes(!) with all proceeds going to the American Trial de Nations team- nice. Thanks to Gabby Caperon for helping me count the cash and balance the books, and for just always being on top of things. Thanks to Ryan Miller for his georgeously lettered scoresheets- way impressive. Thanks to SDTR, for easily staffing all 20 sections with the best checkers, ever. Thanks to Gary LaPlante of Motoventures, and the Cahuilla Band of indians for the opportunity to ride.
Thanks.

PS: A few pics, here.
