Last post before taking the laptops out to Eddieville and setting/testing the scoring system.
Weather/conditions look PERFECT!! Sunny, 60+ degrees, light + variable winds. Doesn't get much better than that.
The MX track is drying out, but since we are only using a 100 yards or so of track, it doesn't matter. MX track will be prepped for Saturday's MX practice.
Tons of grass track, an optional short cut called "Riding the plank", log section, flat track, and a new, bumpy, rough section up on top.Entry to the MX area will be a new terrace section. Planning on Discing a few areas to get that soft, power-robbing experience.
THERE WILL BE ROCKS! ( some, not as much as I would like.)
We have bypassed a couple wet areas to avoid mudholes and left out one complete section just because it is borderline.
Course length should be around 8 miles.
Pit/exchange area is on the east side of parking, next to the wheat field. Please back into pit lane, do not park sideways along pit row.
STAY OUT OF THE WHEAT!!! Anyone caught out in the wheat will be DQ'ed.
New trophies are on the way, should be here Friday, along with some swag we are raffling off before the race to the Endurance Challenge teams/riders. Be sure to sign-up for the endurance challenge to be eligible for year-end awards and give-away goodies.
This will be the most unique course we have laid out in a long-time! We are using as little of the GP course as we can get away with in an effort to keep it Fresh & NEW.
Start? Honestly haven't decided on where or how yet. I will announce at riders meeting.
Rules are on our website. Most important rule is " Scott has final say on all rulings" . That rule applies to everyone, even AA's. NO ONE IS EXEMPT FROM RULES!
Should be a great start to the new years racing. We are kicking out all the stops for this season because....... Nothing lasts forever and our core group is getting on in the years. I don't know how much longer we can maintain the enthusiasm.
We are building to the 25 hrs of Starvation Ridge on Oct.31-Nov1. The longest, biggest 24hr race in the U.S., if not the world.
HAVE A GREAT YEAR!
