We are the Trail Jesters
First full day in Slovakia … we got up early and spent the day walking the special tests for days 5 & 6 of the ISDE. A lot of beautiful forests, steep hilly terrain and climbs that seem to go on forever. Altitude ranged from about 600 ft above sea level in the city to over 2,500 at the high point of several tests. A lot like New England … but steeper ups and downs! The guys are in great spirits and we all went to the first AMA meeting this evening to meet the Team USA riders and hear from AMA officials about the basic plans for this week as we (riders and support crew) get organized and ready to race!
Trail Jesters is sponsoring the JDay Mohawk Sprint Enduro on August 29 in Lanesborough, MA. Come on out race or spectate … and to wish Ben Kelley, John Kelley and Josh Toth well. The team leaves the next day to fly to Slovakia to race the 2015 FIM ISDE.

“Ben Kelley has taken the 2015 J Day Sprint Enduros by storm! Ben has proven his raw speed by winning 3 out of 3 #JDayE events! With the series 4 rounds deep and Ben fulfilling his work credit at round 1, he is a definite favorite for the 2015 Sprint Enduro Championship!”
Ben Kelley rode strong and distinguished himself at the first TOUGH Like RORR event in Tamaqua, PA. This event showcased Pennsylvania’s best technical, tight and rocky terrain. Riding against many top national pros Ben took a strong second overall after the four race weekend.
