As a serious enduro rider, Wayne Pierce would have had an appreciation of the T100C scrambler. While Triumph's hulking 650cc "sleds" ruled the deserts of the Southwest, it was the company's lighter, nimbler 500cc twins that held sway in the tight woods of the Midwest and muddy conditions found on the East Coast. In fact, the talented Bill Baird won seven consecutive AMA National Enduro Championships from 1962-68 riding a largely stock T100. Pierce may have even (literally) crossed paths with Baird in 1968 when the Triumph rider notched an overall win in the prestigious Jack Pine Enduro run through rural Michigan's maze of densely packed trees, where 500cc Triumphs won outright seven times before lightweight, purpose-built two-strokes became the enduro bike of choice.
