I moved out here a few years back, bought a dual sport last May and recently learned about all the desert racing here in SoCal. I'm a little guy on a big bike so I suspect I'll have some interesting experiences. If I turn into a racing junkie like some people seem to do I'll likely buy a more race oriented bike - if the other half gets something she wants too.
I'm heading up to Teagle Wash for Jackrabbits Hare and Hound this weekend. All I'm hoping for is no injuries to bike or body and a finish. If I'm better than last place that's icing on the cake.
I'm hoping I'll turn in some top 10 finishes this year - how many 40+ beginners can there be?
Download and fill out the competition form ahead of time and bring it to the race. Most of the info should be the same - just the name of the race should change.
