Shan Moore, DR 's roving reporter, met me at the airport, and the next day we arrived at the Trials Training Center. It was so great to be back, as I had been going to TTC every summer from 2002 to 2012 as a trials rider. I have competed in youth national trials, national trials, and world trials events there, and I was shocked when we drove through the gate; I had never seen the parking lot so full. The property had received heavy rain on Monday and Thursday night with showers on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. There was no rain in the weekend forecast, but I knew the terrain was bound to be extremely slick, especially with the mud that would get tracked up onto the rocks.
