CVOTC TRIALS APRIL 30, 2017 ALBERMARLE, NC

Jeff and Alan Hensley put on their first trials at the Hensley compound near Albermarle, NC and it was a huge success.
32 riders attended. The 9 sections were very well laid out with just the right amount of difficulty to take points from everyone, but not too tough to beat us up on a warm April day. Traction was just about perfect, with hillsides, rocky creeks, gullies and a neat man made section with logs, tires, culverts, and timber walls.
Section #5 was taken over by a swarm of bees after the first loop....at least for the Sportsman riders....it was a great down and up hillside/gully section.
The competition was very close in most classes for the first 3 positions. It was even tied on cleans, ones, twos and threes in the intermediate class for the 1 and 2 positions. First place was eventually given to the person who was still there at trophy presentation.....you leave, you lose.
As far as the trophies were concerned, they were hand painted river rocks for the first three places in each class....very neat.
The CVOTC appreciates the continued support from Jim McKenzie of Competition Wheels of Concord, NC for showing up at most of our events with new bikes, parts, and gear to supply and temp us with.
Again thanks to the Hensley brothers and family for all the thought and work that went into what we hope is the first of many great events at Albermarle.
