The Colorado 500 is comprised of many very generous individuals who support many great causes.

A perfect example is their donations to local Colorado organizations that fight to protect motorized recreation including; Colorado Trails Preservation Alliance, WESTCORE - Western Colorado Riders & Enthusiasts, Colorado Backcountry Trails Riders Alliance (CBTRA), Colorado Off Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO), San Juan Trail Riders (SJTR) & Gunnison Valley O.H.V Alliance of Trailriders (The GOATs).

We really appreciate the donations that we've received from the Colorado 500.

Wow, Cody Webb will be on a Sherco USA, racing for the FactoryONE Sherco USA Team.

He looks good rocking his FXR Racing gear!

How does everything think he'll do? Was it his KTM or his shear amount of talent that made him so good?

Today some of our members ventured over to Moab, Utah to enjoy the Sovereign Trail.

While out riding they ran into Clif Koontz, Executive Director of Ride With Respect who works tirelessly to protect our motorized & mechanized trails in Utah from closures. You’ll often find him on the trail doing maintenance, marking trail and blocking bypasses. Today he had volunteer Scott Stevenson owner of moto-friendly 3 Step Hideaway near La Sal, Utah helping him.

If you’ve ever followed the paint marks along a trail in Moab, there’s a pretty good chance Clif was involved. We appreciate Clif and all of the volunteers that help him, and ask that you consider helping him as well if you have an opportunity to.

For many of us the Hermosa Creek area is very special as it's the first area that we can get into and ride the mountains after a long winter of riding in the desert. We share these multi-use single-track trails with many people from different user groups and have a fantastic time doing so. Many of our members use these trails for multiple forms or recreation too.

So it come as no surprise that many of our Members' hearts sank when they watched the area burn in the Summer of 2018 416 Fire. Our Board and Membership participated in many open forums and meetings in the months that followed and the same message kept being communicated that it would be 2 to 2 1/2 years before these trails would be open again. On May 1, 2019 the burn area opened back up to the public.

What happened next was nothing short of amazing. We had a number of members who headed into the burn with shovels and saws strapped to their in tow. Many of these members worked at least 3 days straight cutting logs, re-benching the trial & fixing drainage issues. In less than a week our members had removed over 400 logs which had blocked the trails. Their work continued into the summer, so that ALL single-track users could enjoy these trails again.

While it doesn't sound astonishing SJTR's turned in a total of 123 volunteer hours to the Columbine Ranger District - San Juan National Forest, consideration to the limited miles of trails in this district as well as how many of our members chalked up their time clearing the trails simply to giving back to the community they care about and didn't submit their hours helps clarify this total. Simply by evaluating the massive amount of work completed it's easy to see that our total hours completed were much higher for 2019 than reported.

With all that being said SJTR's would like to give special thanks to our following Members; Scott Kurlander, George Villanyi, Scott Steffens, Tara Morey, Landon Tate, Aidan Tate, Chad Hendrickson, Dallas Knoll, Jeff Roedell, Curt Larsen, Allen Christy & Deric Hook

Thanks to our Rockstar Members we just turned in 228 volunteer hours to the Dolores Ranger District - San Juan National Forest for 2019.

Our members organized and completed nearly all of this work on their own, paid for the supplies, and tools to complete this work out of their own pockets for the enjoyment of ALL single-track trail users, that shows just how great of people our members are!

So the next time you see one of the following individuals we ask that you take a second to tell them "Thank you!", shake their hand or give them a pat on the back because they deserve it.

As dirtbike riders It's always fun to face new obstacles and challenges.
This rider has some impressive skills, and perhaps comes from a trials background.

Do you have a friend that you think can pull off this move? If so tag them in the comments. If you're that guy or gal, give the rest of us mortals some pointers in the comments.

Thanks to Enduro Channel for sharing this video!

Wednesday night we had an excellent turnout at our October Membership Meeting.

Gary Wilkinson gave us an update on the RWD Litigation and other Trail Proposals in the Four-Corners area.

SJTR’s is working with the area Ranger Districts to assist them in the OHV Grant process by providing suggestions for projects and providing letters of support. We really appreciate Drew Hollen, Scott Steffens & Tara Morey for stepping and offering to help.

Jeremy Shoning gave an excellent presentation on his 2013 ISDE experience and answered questions from our members.

We won’t be holding meetings in November & December since this is such a busy part of the year. Chairman Heather Hormell is already working on getting a very informative meeting set up in January so we can start 2020 off great!

If you have any other fun pictures from the meeting you’d like to share please put them in the comments.

San Juan Trail Riders realizes that not all heroes wear capes, our heroes carry saws, shovels, Pulaski’s, sledge hammers & loppers to take care of our trails.

Saturday, we had an excellent turnout of heroes in the San Juan National Forest - Dolores Ranger District for our Trail Work Day, we had eleven (11) hard working guys and gals came out to give back to their public lands with many driving an hour and a half each way to improve Priest Gulch Trail #645 for ALL single-track trail users. Over the course of the day over sixty (60) hours of trail work was completed.

Though we didn’t get everything done our members made a tremendous difference, lots of laughs were shared and the comradery ran deep.

We would like to thank the following members for coming out and helping: Curtis Cowan, Jeff Roedell, Brian Gerst, Allen Christy, Gary Wilkinson, Jason Chapman, Clive Heller, Heather Hormell, Scott Steffens, Tara Morey & Deric Hook

Thank you everyone!

All of us can learn an important lesson from Lil John Frey when an obstacle is in your way, whether it be on the trail or anywhere in life focus on it and concur it! Then let out a loud “RAWR” afterwards and the victory will be that much sweeter!

Thanks, Munn Racing KTM and Husqvarna for sharing this picture!Full Throttle! LiL John Frey tackling the Endurocross course. The STACYC 12EDRIVE breaks the boundaries on what they'd think your 4 year old can accomplish.

Let us know in the comments what do you see as the biggest technological improvement(s) that improved dirtbikes?

Was it liquid cooling, power valves, electric start, fuel injection, single rear shocks, PDS, 18" rear wheels, digital ignitions, oil injection, new era of four-strokes, lock-on grips, or something we completely take for granted?
