Three Springs Enduro

6/26/16

Bob and Troy cool off in the water crossing, after doing some Three Springs Enduro course work/prep.  The water crossing is a spectator favorite during the enduro, for obvious reasons.  Unfortunately Chris was shooting stills and missed catching a YouTube classic when Troy grabbed a bit too much throttle on one of the passes through the creek.  🙂

Clearing trail at Taskers Gap

Dan, Vince, Andy and Thom headed out to Taskers Gap last week to clear a pretty good size tree.  Dan made short work of it and we were able to hump the gear up the hill and to the vehicle just in time to miss the lightning and hail.  Fun was had by all.

2016 Old Dominion Horse Enduro

Half a dozen WATR members traveled to Bayse VA to clear and mark trails for the OD100. WATR has been doing this for over 15 years and plays a crucial role in the safety of  the horses and riders of the event. Many of the 100 mile riders travel in the dark on single track trail and our efforts in clearing the trail of tress and debris and properly marking it contributes to the success of the event.

Mid Atlantic Trials Event

Several WATR members went to New Windsor MD and competed in a trials event.  Billy, Doug, Heidi, and Adam were in attendance on a great Father’s Day event.  It was a great day to be out and about riding bikes.  Billy got 2nd in his class and I could only pull off 7th or 8th place.  I will know more when the post results.
