I have been working on bringing Adventure bike racing to the PNW for the last few years. I thought maybe some of you in OC might find this interesting. This year we finally have enough dedicated riders to field a team of big KTMs against the 450's and smaller bikes at the largest 24 hr in the country.:eek1 The 24 Hours of Starvation Ridge race is coming up quickly October 26th and 27th. Myself and Alex from Konflict Suspension have assembled a team in which we will be competing on our adventure bikes. We have named our team The Heavyweights Several ADV members are involved with our team. our facebook page can be found at the address below. Please checkout our progress as we setup the bikes and prepare ourselves for the ultimate test. http://www.facebook.com/advheavyweights Our team consists of riders of varying skill from trail riders to Baja 1000 racers. Team riders: 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 Jason Williams- KTM 990 Adventure We have had a lot of interest from companies in the industry willing to support our race effort: Giant Loop Moto- www.giantloopmoto.com Konflict Motorsports & Suspension- www.konflictmotorsports.com Renazco Racing- www.renazco.com/ Tigatu Clothing Company- www.tigatu.com Cyclops Adventure Sports- www.cyclopsadventuresports.com Coastal Instruments Inc.- www.facebook.com/coastalinstruments 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.
