    Registration is open on BITD.com for the V2R.
    I've raced it about 7 or 8 times but I'll be Iron manning it for the first time this year.

    Anyone else in?

    In!
    If plans work out we'll be racing Open Expert on a new YZ450FX, the fallback bike is my CRF450X.
    Hopefully I won't mess up our speed average too badly :D

    I'm on a CRF 450X. I've been doing basic gym work to prepare and pre running the Mojave Road from Afton Canyon to Laughlin and back. later this month we're running that route there and back, twice which is about 550 miles. I found that filling my camel back with ice, then a bottle of coconut water, gatorade, and topping off with water is a great mix for staying hydrated.

    Come on out Mike. If you don't catch a ride with Shawn, you can ride with us. The guy I've been teaming up with over the last 8 years is also riding it solo, but we're going to try to stick together as much as we can.

    Just saw that bikes have to run a tracker this year, which is new, and adds $200 to your race budget for rental of the unit only.
    Don't want anyone to get to registration and be surprised!
    You also need to mount the unit so its probably best to get it done in advance, rather than in the hot parking lot before tech.

    Oh and by way of Chip's post, my main teammate had to back out this year so I'm working on alt plans, in case anyone is looking to team up or needs a rider, give me a shout.

    Waiting on this racetrax thing to arrive. I guess they are working on some different gopro style mounts. Kinda of a bummer.
