The 24 Hours of Starvation Ridge race is coming up quickly October 26th and 27th. Myself and Daryl from Cyclops Adventure-sports have assembled a team in which we will be competing on our adventure bikes.
We have named our team The Heavyweights for obvious reasons. We have started a Facebook page so our progress on bike preparations, modifications, rider interviews, and race updates can be easily followed.
The facebook page can be found at. http://www.facebook.com/advheavyweights
Our team consists of riders of varying skill from AA NMA hare scramble riders to Baja 1000 racers.
Radek Burkat- KTM 990 Adventure
Darryl VanNieuwenhuise- KTM 950 Adventure
Alex Martens- KTM 950 Super Enduro
John Isenburg- KTM 990 Adventure
Richard Miller- Honda XR650L

We have had a lot of interest from companies in the industry willing to support our race effort:

Attempting to race the 24 Hours of Starvation Ridge on 500lb + adventure bikes has yet to be done, this will truly test our skills, and possibly our sanity.
