Happy Valentine's Day! <3

Rounds 6 and 7 of the SCTA Championship Series are next weekend! The whole V.O.T.E. crew will be out in force on Valentine's day, showing our TRIALS LOVE, and getting the last of twenty sections and two loops in place. Still looking for a few checkers for Saturday, so let me know if you're interested.Brad, Trevor, Darrell, FNG, Gabby, Russ, and Steve. Me behind the camera, per usual.
The graffiti has been power-washed away from the rocks north of the pits, thanks to Steve Leffler and Brad Allred, (Awesome humans, both- and just another reason they're featured on the flier).
One last thing, if you're coming in from the OC, the 91 will be shut down all damn weekend. So take the 57 to the 60, then south on 215. That's 30 more minutes for you to rock the stereo, and hype yourself up for some super cool trial action! See you, on the rocks!

V.O.T.E. Presents: Two Days in Romoland!

Yep. Two weeks away, The Valley Observed Trials Enthusiasts bring you not one, but TWO awesomely crafted days of trials action. Our favorite VOTE president, Gabby Caperon, has been leading the charge, setting up the course for some brand spanking new sections. Sunday is shaping up quite nicely as well, following the "Happy Loop" with a few new twists and turns along the way.

Big shout out to Gabby of course, and Steve Leffler, Darrell Palmer, Mikey Jenkins, Chris Cullins, Brad Allred, Art Bradford, and even more who have helped get the place ready for YOU. Heck, See that guy in the picture in the post below? Steve and Brad brought in high pressure equipment and de-graffitti'd the rocks all over Romoland, and I couldn't be more proud of their efforts. Super impressive, men. Make sure you thank these guys, they are what makes me love this sport.

And now, guess what? We need some checkers, and some volunteers. All VOTE members should be out at Romoland THIS Sunday the 14th at 9:00 am for a rocking fun set-up party. Bring your hammer, bush trimmers and staple guns and we'll get this thing DONE. Then go get all romantic with the other half.
