BJEC Scipio, OK

The Tulsa Trail Riders recently invited me down to cover their race and provide the racers with an opportunity to purchase photos after the race.  Half of the fun for this race was actually getting there.  With all of the twists, turns, and varied terrain, it seemed like a roll chart and long-travel suspension parts were needed just to get to the race site.  The staging area was great and it seemed like the place was well cared for.  Thumbs up to the TTR for that.  The PeeWee course was the best course that I’ve seen to date for the small-wheeled riders.  The TTR gang really went all out on this one.  It took Nathan Rector more than a few minutes to navigate this course…and that’s saying somethin’.  The big course had a rock or two embedded in it, but the armadillos who were out pre-riding the course didn’t seem to mind.

Brady Meador and the rest of the AA gang were moving along, even in the first transfer section.  Sadly, the bike pictured below was stolen after Brady got home and cleaned it.  I was bummed to hear the news and I hope the bike and the van make it back home.   I hope to get some information in to Trials and Enduro News soon to get the BJEC series some well-deserved press.  If you’ve never been to a BJEC race, get ready for a day full of riding and eat some sort of breakfast cereal… a lot of it.
