“The weekend was good. I got off to a decent start. I ended up getting in the 6th position and riding it home from there. My mechanic Jason was awesome along with team manager Carlen. Looking for that top 3 finish!”

“California Trials Invitational in Murrieta was as always a challenging layout. Going in to the event I was full of confidence as I have done well there in the years past. Unfortunately, this year was not great for me. I felt good in warm up, and then it started going wrong in the first section when my hand slipped off the bars going up a rock and causing me to pull the kill switch teather off. From there it snow balled. Little mistakes instantly turned to fives. I found some form as the day went on and had some decent rides, but all in all I am disappointed with the outcome.”

El Trial de Espana

Anza, CA

April 24th, 2022

The golden anniversary of the El Trial de Espana was held just outside Temecula, CA over the weekend. This historic event saw another high-level contest between the top trial riders. The tests were routed through big boulder sections at the MotoVenture venue. Alex Niederer was riding well enough to finish 2nd on the day but an unfortunate 5 in the 6th section cost him the podium finished. He ended up in 4th place. His focus now turns to the NATC in a couple of weeks.

“Saturday morning was awesome, finishing the morning loop on 0 points. Then in the shoot-out, I was right in the hunt until the 6th of 9 rides. Unfortunately, I was given a 5, which was the difference from second to 4th place. Finishing the El Trial in fourth was not the goal, but my riding was spot on and I am really happy with the progress, moving in the right direction. Sunday started well but a big crash on the 5th section of the day left me behind and paused my confidence for a while. My last loop on Sunday was good again. Looking forward to the Nationals again in just over 2 weeks.”
