I biked the kids down to the Ruston waterfront for the 3rd Annual T-town Throwdown Trials Event. We arrived at noon for a little picnic on the grass. While we waited for the competition to begin, Gwen made a new friend and they ran all over the place as three year olds are apt to do. The riders were still walking the courses and warming up.
The Pro courses incorporated the large shoreline rip rap, but even watching the Beginners navigate small boulders was impressive. The crowd wasn't huge, which allowed for good views of the action, but many of the passers-by on the pedestrian path stopped at length to check it out. Lots of good, wholesome, family fun that few were willing to miss.
