in Northeast Events
Added by c.smith , --

Taking place Aug 08, 2009 through Aug 09, 2009 06:00 AM - 06:00 AM (Recurring Event)


Hancock, NY.

We've put alot of hard work into this years event and I am confident in saying there will be no dissapointments. Both days will be just under 100 miles each. Completely different courses both days. I would put our routes up against any enduro. No killer stuff, just all fun trail with plenty of challenges. I would not let rain scare you off. Our trails have a good solid base. We've had rain weekends plenty of times in the past and I'm sure guys will vouch for mr saying it is just as fun. The event has not reached its rider limit. We put that on the entry to encourage pre entry because we do not have enough manpower to sign up hundreds of riders each morning. We are considering pre entry only for next year.

Saturday starts off with an all new 12 mile woods section, passes back by the start for mid day fuel, or gas up in town, More nice trail to Art's lunch, Then a really fun enduro style points taker to end the day, not tough about 5 miles of grass track and cool trails.

Sunday starts off with a few miles of different grass track and nice trails, a few miles of dirt road in the mid day to get you to fuel,( you will not be near the start, two strokes should carry oil) Then into 40 miles of heavenly uninterupted woods trail to end the day. Free chicken dinner at the end of the day.

There is not one day that is easier than the other, but there are bypasses for all of the heavy woods sections. Please take the time out to bring a few dollars along and spend it at the cookie stands you pass during the day. These cookie stands have gotten us some of our best parcels of land and your kindness goes a long way for all of the events held in the Hancock area. Please go slow near houses, there will be plenty of time to show off in the woods. Keep in mind if you are on an improved dirt road, it is public and there is a good chance there will be cars coming at you. We need legal bikes with working lights and license plate mounted on a drop down fender extension. A plate on top of your fender won't fly. Please be patient a respectful at signup. We only have a handful of people putting this event on and Lin Rizzon has to sign up 500 riders in two hours every morning. We do not arrow this event like an enduro. We supply route sheets and you will need it. Bring tape and scissors. If you don't want to use the route sheet, go out back in the pack so you don't get everyone else lost.

For the second year we are holding an adventure ride in conjunction with the dual sport catering to big bikes. The course is all new this year and has very little overlap with the dual sport Mileage will be 125 miles on Saturday and 140 miles on Sunday. Trail boss Dan OConnell says Saturday has a few kind woods sections and Sunday is more dirt road oriented. Dan laid the adventure ride out on a BMW 650.
