Bar-H Bash Competition
April 2, 2005

Saint Jo, Texas


Story by Stephen Maeder

Ever heard the phrase "everything is bigger in Texas?" That was certainly true of the trials sections at the Bar-H Bash in Saint Jo, a small North Texas town with a population of 977. In all the classes, from beginner to pro, sections were big and challenging.

Twenty-five riders came out to test their skills and enjoy hanging out together afterwards in the beautiful, dry, clear sky, 75+ degree weather. The sun made it feel like mid-80s and quickly dehydrated most riders. A large and enthusiastic crowd came to watch. They gave an encouraging applause to riders trying to get through tough parts of sections.

Riders in each class completed 3 loops on 3 sections. Beginners overcame small logs, sharp turns, and steep inclines. Sport riders made their way over small spools, boulders, teeter-totters, balance beams, and along felled trees. Expert and Pro rode junked cars, big spools, tractor tires, oil barrels, a large trailer, and big boulders.

A big thanks goes to Steve Hile, Jeff Edlington, and Stan Selejov for organizing the trials competition and all the riders who helped build the sections and volunteered their time.
