I went to the two-day DirtWise class put on by Shane Watts this past weekend near Lebanon, OR. I caught a bit of the off-road racing "bug" and did my first ISDE race last month (China Hatp, and plan to hit a few other ISDE or XC/GP races later this year. I signed up for OMRA's 2011 Dualsport series, but so far I don't really understand how that works, since the events all seem to say they are not races. In any case, my off-road skills could use improvement, and CrazyBrit talked me into taking the class Then he went and pulled a neck muscle or something, so I ended up taking the class without him. The event was held at the Rock Hill Rec. Dirt Bike Park. This is apparently a large operating farm/ranch that plows some of their fields into motocross courses. You'll see in the photos that it's a really pretty area. I'm not sure how you go about riding there other than at the class. The class was limited to 18 students with one instructor.
