First off I must say that for me 2016 marked an epic year of accomplishment for Trail Jesters Racing. Significant growth for many of our riders, a lot of wins, representing our sponsors well, great sportsmanship, excellent give back to our sport … and what it was really all about … helping some New England rippas reach for their dreams.
That said, as 2016 comes to a close it also marks the end of the three year commitment I made to the first 6 jesters in my garage in early 2014. I have been thinking a lot about what lies next for Trail Jesters. I do want to do some new things. I do want to reach into the New England talent pool to grab some new young guns to bring into the program. I also want to try to broaden TJR’s horizons and relationships in support of our riders.
So, chapter one of Trail Jesters Racing is now closed.
I want to thank the riders, sponsors, family and community for their great support over the past three years. I’ll be back in a few weeks to discuss chapter two.
