Amidst all the x-ups, no handers, supermans, back flips and front flips during the slopestyle competitions at Crankworx this week, lets not forget about the beautiful and awe-inspiring art of trials. This year we have not one but TWO members of Team Muddbunnies competing at Trialsworx on July 27-28, a husband and wife team: Lisa Howey-Louter and James (Gee) Louter.
Lisa Howey-Louter, you’ll remember from the Brodie Rat Race. It was her first DH race and she killed it on her hardtail (a beautiful Santa-Cruz Camellion). Amidst bailing not once, but twice on her race run she placed a respectable 4th. Lisa is a regular competitor of trials competitions and we’re expecting big things from her this year.
And if any of you were at the South Surrey Bike Festival last month you’ll recall Gee’s stunning performance guest riding for Trialsstars.com Michelle Santos (Muddbunnies co-founder) was so impressed she went and bought herself an Echo mod bike with 20 inch wheels!
