Amazing - Well done!

Im embarrassed to say we where mistaken on our finish, we where told by the promoter that we had 17th OA, but on the results posted today it looks like 36th OA. Oh well we still had a blast and rode the wheels off the big bikes.

Good times

I think I speak on behalf of the other support volunteers when I point out we didn't come to be cheer leaders, we came to do what ever it took to keep you guys running around the clock. It was busy for those first shake down laps, but after that it was all normal endurance race failures. If I'm not racing next year count me in for more wrenching duty.

You can race and wrench... the organizers allow it.


Maybe we can enter the short bald guy class next year.

Without the help we revived we would have been up a creek, the energy that it takes to push the beast around that track had me feeling like a rubber band man after every lap.
Thanks are not near enough..

Special thanks to the Cyclops crew for my foodbank donation raffle prize, a 1,000 lumen led helmet light. An outstanding light, capping off a thoroughly entertaining event from a spectator's perspective.

Now, if only Carri (sp?) of Dirty Girls could find a dirtbike. Is it really true that those gals had not only a caterer but also a masseuse? Is there a sign-up sheet for the cigar chomping grandpa position?

Cheers, Anselmo

Team Heavyweights

Team Heavyweights WILL be attending a few races this next year! Perry Mountain, and Vegas to Reno along with a few others are on the tentative list.

24 hour racing is a whole different animal that I truly enjoy, this last race at Starvation Ridge was one of the most fun races I’ve done in a long time.

Having the industry support, rider support, and pit support we had truly makes a difference in the success competing on these big bikes.

Wait till you see the photo's and race reports and video once things are put together...

You'll be wanting to join us that much more, which we are discussing in taking the “Team Heavyweights” into much larger spectrum than it currently is.

So with this being said and just a thought at this time, how many people would be interested in becoming “Team Heavyweight Members”. There would be benefits of course with swag, pit support, and product support.

How many people are seriously interested in racing their ADV Bikes in local and national events? Competing against the smaller bikes takes a bit of commitment, and skill but if you are willing it can be some of the most fun you’ve had on a bike, it sure has been for myself!
Cheers,
Alex

We have gotten the final cut on our 24 Hour of Starvation Ridge race the Team Heavyweights completed on their KTM 990's and 950 Super Enduro's. We had a fantastic time with this event, and its just the beginning of " The Heavyweights" competing against smaller bikes at various races. Check it out and let us know what you think!
