Just FYI for those that might be interested. I'm planning on wrecking...er....racing it. Looks to be cold weather that weekend...so I might pull my big trailer out for the trip. (Place to put heater, etc, in the morning.)

Even if you've never raced a scramble before it's relatively cheap. Fees I've encountered before there:

Park entry : $15/person
Race fee: $25
AMA Year license fee: $39 (Depends on who is putting this on...might not be needed.)

Yeah...so future races are basically $40 plus gas money. And ya wonder why folks go dirt racing instead of track racing? Good training though.

Bring some food and a camelback....you will want that. Amateurs (Vet C class) are broken up depending on bike size. Race is 1.5 hours long for amateurs....as many laps as you can. You can take breaks as you want....minor adjustments on bike, rest, etc. It's an endurance race. So after he first lap you are generally riding around with guys about the same skill level. (Or lack thereof in my case.) 1.5 hours may sound short....but by the end of an hour you will be looking for the checkered flag at the lap station. Oh yeah....because of the maybe 200 bikes out there...the course and conditions generally change every lap. What is a passable mud area on lap 1....might be almost impassable by lap 3. (Happened 2 years ago I think...I ended up jumping a small ravine to continue onward....bypassing 30+ bogged riders.)

They score it by laps completed. A scan barcode sticker is attached to your helmet. At each lap you stop at the lap station and get it scanned to record your lap time and lap count. The course is generally a mix of woods, motocross track, and occasionally the oval track. It's probably the easiest scramble course I've been too yet. Nothing too hard, lots of really fun hilly trails sections. I look forward to riding this course each year.

KX is the designator for Kawi's MX 2-strokes.

Good luck in the race!

I've chased all over those damned woods....not a rabbit in sight. I'm thinking I've been lied to. It's a conspiracy!
