I'll do the China hat ISDE, and the Millican race.

Probably wont do much else. Maybe Shedd.. and eddiville later on.
I'm going to try to get the 8 races in for the series, we'll see.

I heard the Clarcks Branch race was nasty. Mud pits and mud hills and poison oak, oh my.

Thank you.

I didn't notice you when you passed me, but I did notice your friend on the airhead. He was just plain smooth.

When you're slow, the second lap is totally different. No crowds, no dust. From looking at the timestamps on the pictures I was actually slightly faster on the second lap.
Don't let him kid you, he did it just for the T-shirt

Pat blew by me 3 times during the race and I had to fight hard to get by him again. He's the real deal. Rode pro for Yamaha for several years, raced ISDE. 3 years ago I was riding gravel roads thinking I was doing something cool then he showed me what a big bike could actually do, I was hooked and haven't looked back.

Oh i watched the videos, it looked like a bitch. wrestling 400-500+ pounds around. I want to do it though hahaha.

That one video of ktm adventure here.. where he is burried to the axles and digging it out like its a freaking snowmobile LOL.
I would of gone longer if my left thumb wasn't sprained on the first mile or so of race. Going 17 miles was surely a bitch, fun but work. May think of next year with the Tenere.

I'm doing the XC series. They are usually longer trail races. There's also a GP series that's shorter track races. There's an endurance race series at Starvation Ridge and Eddieville. http://overthebarsgang.com None of the races have an 'adventure' class, but nearly all the classes are open bike so anything is legal to run.


In general, the events east of the Cascades are rideable on a big bike. To the west, no. For example, the China Hat race on May 4th and the later one at Millican on the 18th would be doable on a 690. Devil's Head would be a poor choice.

There is an ADV class at the 24 hr at the ridge, The Heavyweights declined to race in it last year, opting for competing against dirt bikes, If we see the response and desire from other ADV riders this year we can change that, or race two classes.
I would love to see others start racing their ADv bikes in regular races, Myself and Alex raced a team night race last Saturday night, another's coming up next weekend in castlerock

Thanks to all of you for the videos and reports. I'm gathering info and have noticed that the videos don't do justice to the hills, and so make the whole deal look like a nice trail ride. I'm well aware that it ain't so. However, at the advanced age of 66, and the technicolor vision of my youth, I would love to enter my XS650 in the adventure class. If I were to not worry too much about time, how bad would it be with 3 inches of rear travel and 4 inches of fork travel? Back in the day I used to race a 74 CZ in the desert. Wasn't fast then either, but was all about finishing in one piece, mostly.
