    Do your rules allow 2 riders in the 3 rider race? Any video of the previous races?

    Guys Im sorry but we are going to have to postpone the race due to the property is just to wet to race on right now. The water isn't draining out of the river side of the race course, we have tried several times to dig drains and whatnot its just not enough. This has been a very hard decision to make but the property owner and I think this is the best thing to do. I don't wanna put everyone through an 8 hour mud bog and destroy your bikes. I am looking at dates this morning for the new race weekend. I hope everyone understands, please help spread the word to anyone that has plans to run this event.


    Thanks Jeremy
