Club Sponsor Appreciation
As the Copper Classic approaches, it is fitting for TRS to express its appreciation to the associations, local bike shops, a regional bike equipment distributor and business and government entities that are supporting this club's effort to host the race. Some of these business and bike shops stand behind TRS throughout the year, not just for this race. For their support we are grateful. Copies of this banner will be prominently displayed on the Copper Classic race campus.

There Will Be Dust X, Thank You Message
Saturday’s There Will Be Dust X was an absolute success. The event execution was nearly flawless due to the hard work of the TRS Planning Team. The staging accommodations at the Amado Territory were appreciated by all who were in attendance. Our good friends at the Longhorn Grill & Saloon once again did a marvelous job providing the lunch and dinner meals. The raffle party under the big tent was a great way to end the day.Of course, none of this would have been possible without the fantastic TRS member’s volunteer support and the many business sponsors of the event. TRS volunteers were responsible for a wide range of assignments and tasks. Here is a short list of what the…
There Will Be Dust X Message
Greetings and a sincere Happy Thanksgiving to all.On Saturday November 19th. TRS hosted the 10th running of There Will Be Dust (TWBD) out of the Amado Territory in Amado, Arizona. This year was special for several reasons. Saturday’s event was a milestone year being the 10th. It was held where it all began back in 2013, Amado Arizona. Next, TRS experienced a record attendance number for the event. When pre-registration closed, we had 130 riders on the entry list. And finally, and perhaps most important, the founder of TWBD, Steve Brown made a special appearance coming all the way from Oregon to ride and socialize with TRS. It was great having Steve with us on Saturday.What made this year special…
