Default Valley Dirt Riders Harescrambles

Going to go watch my buddy race in the VDR harescramble this Sunday up at the track in Berthoud. If my bike was ready I'd be racing! Anyone want to go? They have a series through the winter.

Sorry Tim, missed your post on my Tapatalk app I guess. The racing usually starts at about 10:30 or so, so my buddy likes to get there around 9-9:30 to get ready. I didn't race, but want to in January. Have to get the bike ready and be mentally ready for the ice and mud!

It's a little different than I was hoping for. It's like a long motocross track, 6 miles. I was hoping for some enduro style obstacles - I guess they have some big tires you can ride over if you're up for it, now that I think about it.

Both of my friends broke their rear fenders, good thing we recovered the license plates.

Bumping this as it's less than 2 weeks out at this point. Finally got my 2nd set of plastics fitting up pretty good with the new decals. Just have to do an oil change, fresh air filter, check valves and lube chain.

This
Was
Awesome

Probably not something I should do too often, as I want to reduce my chances of getting hurt, but WOW!

So much fun to feel the adrenaline rushing and see what I and my bike can do.

Crashed once, fell over another time, but got 5th in the Sportsman's Class out of 8 or 9 I think. Got passed by a girl on a 200 EXC though

Didn't get any pics or video except of my dirty bike when I got home, I'll look and see if pics come up online sometime soon.

Here's the results page:

The track was about as perfect as I think it could get. A couple muddy spots, no dust, not hard, but mostly just tacky
