    I will be there!

    I've never run a hare scramble, what type of trail should I expect? Is it going to be enduro trail, or stuff you'd see at the hammer run, or something totally different?

    In any case, I am super looking forward to this!

    Hare Scramble is part (mostly) Enduro part Motocross. Nothing crazy in the MX section just an open pit with bermed sweeping turns, hills and a few small jumps.

    Sounds awesome. :D I'm pumped for this. I am probably going to get my ass kicked, but that is totally fine! I will start at the back of the C riders. :)

    Won't know unless you try! C class riders(beginners) ride a 8 mile loop.

    Here is a link to the official flyer:

    Wish I were ready to ride "event level" this early in season. Cracked my hand up, a few weekends ago, and have not ridden last couple weekends. I am sure it will be a great event with awesome trails and terrain. Uncharistically good for "south NJ". :D

    Only requirement that I know of is that you be an AMA member.
    I'm not sure about the ECEA "licensing"/"test", but if that's the case, it's likely you will be able to do it at signup. There will be AMA signups available on site from what I've heard.

    Nope, this isn't a rally, they won't make you pay seven thousand dollars to ride on public roads. :rofl

    My understanding of the rules is you only need to be an AMA member. If you want to accumulate series points you need to be an ECEA member.

    Was out earlier helping setting a tent up and some other stuff, it's shaping up pretty well! Course looks fun, and guys are out today double and triple checking to make sure it's all arrowed perfectly.

    I'll be out tomorrow and Sunday on a hill ensuring your kids and you make it up. Might have to fab up a GoPro mount for a mini tripod I have to get some footage the event for those of you who can't make it.

    How's the weather down there? Is it setting up for swing arm deep ruts? I'm picturing bikes strewn across the woods, steam, rev limiters... Not wanting to waste 3 hrs of drive time for a mud bog!
