We worked on the course last night at it is taking shape. I have a few options for the vintage course short and maybe too easy or longer with a couple elevation changes.

Well, it seems as though there will be a lot of dust control between now and the 18th. After last weekends mudfest I know which way I would vote! :bomb

Even with rain this will not be a Netra Erzburg event. I will do my best to get a mix but making 3 separate tracks is very difficult even with many helpers.

The harder the better for me, apparently. How about some HERO sections? :biggrin
Valves are STILL for toilets!

Don't matter to me hard or easy its all good. The more technical it is the better shot I have keeping the big bores in sight. Lol

My goal is to run the longer course if the weather holds out. The guys are going to wrap up all the arrows and layout this weekend. I will then work on removing any nasty sections I can remove. I will try to include a small grass track if possible.
Thanks

I’ve received word that trailboss Big Dave Dussault has parked his RV at the track and is staying there til Monday to make sure he can devote as much time as possible to our course for us. :thumbsup: Weather is looking better and better every time I look too! :letsgo

Unfortunately I'm going to miss this one, some fresh stitches in my index finger is going to keep me from the line :bleep:
Always looking forward to this event...

Alright Dave, let's hear about the course. I'm on the fence about which bike to ride, the IT200 or maybe break the KX250 back out. Or maybe even the WR500... :shock

What say you?

I want to know if I need a plow. Planning on Husky. I know you put excellent vintage courses together but how much mud now?

Dave has minimal service up at the track so he asked me to relay that course is more “woodsy” than last years course and not nearly as much grasstrack. As always with a course that Dave puts together it’ll still be awesome. :thumbsup:

Grass track is over-rated. Except Wrentham which is heaven.

Says the guy with brakes and suspension. Get back on the MX and learn to love grass track.
