Just SoCal and AZ.

I haven't actually entered a race in well over a year, but my last three were in AZ. At the time out here, I just more fun riding at Glen Helen or Pala.

It'd be nice to find a 5-6 race series where I wouldn't miss a day due to work. Been curious how the C and Vet B classes are doing.

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!

Ohio - D11 and now ACES enduros and Hare Scrambles. I raced a few MX races in the old D11 as well. There is a reason Ohio has produced so many offroad superstars over the years. Southern Ohio is slick clay and rocky with tight trees and big steep hills. If you can go decent down there, you can ride almost anywhere! As seen below, I have been all over and still look to the southern Ohio area as some of the best dirt bike riding there is!

Indiana- I have raced D15 Enduros and now D14 enduros as well as some IXCR races. Mudobbers MC enduro is one of the best races I have ever ridden

Illinois- I haven't done a lot of riding here but I did do a trials event in Mendota IL last year.

Kentucky- Back in the old days there was D10 HS which were all held at Eagle Creek Park. The place was gnarly. Rocky rutted and beat. I loved racing there and know that the time spent there helped make me into the rider I am now.

Michigan - I won the 2018 250A enduro championship in D14 and my wife and I ride together in the family enduro series. The trails up here are sandy and fun. A lot of the trails are pretty tight single track. Also, Tomahawk Trail in Wolverine MI is one of the best places to ride.... Anywhere.

Pennsylvania - I have raced a few enduros here. Both as National Enduros and ACES Enduros. The Green Marble Enduro was super fun and not as sketchy/ rocky as the Rattlesnake.

Maryland - Deep Creek Maryland, WISP GNCC. The first year they ran this event it was gnarly. Wet, rocky, and tough. This is how I remember GNCCs. They weren't always bulldozer wide trail, 3hr GP races...

West Virginia - I raced a couple GNCCs here in the early 2000's. The best being the Hard Rock (?) GNCC in Fairmont WV. It was super fun and had a pro hill called "Papa Hill" that was CRAZY!! I watched Lafferty struggle on that hill and have to hit it twice. Myself and a couple friends also got lost in the wilderness after dark the night before the race.. Good times. There is also a couple really good places to ride that i won't post online but on the right day you can ride with former national HS champs and ride terrain and trails that will blow your mind.

South Carolina - Sandlapper National Enduro. The name says it all. Sandy, and on row 101 or whatever, it is WHOOPED out beyond belief! I also rode the Little Brown Jug Enduro in 2003ish timeframe near Greenville SC. That was an amazing race. I loved it and would love to go do that one again.

Georgia - Raced the Cherokee National Enduro there a couple times. I always struggled there. Slick reddish clay and exposed pine tree roots. This race was always early in the season and being from Ohio, I never showed up in good enough condition to be competitive.

Tennessee - I raced an one of my first ever hare scrambles down around Morristown? in 1999-2000 timeframe. It was rocky and tough with some HUGE hillclimbs. I also raced the Rad Dad National enduro in 2010 on Dick Burlesons row. It was a great day. I got to talk to one of my heroes all day while riding in awesome weather. The trail there is on a private riding clubs property so a fair amount was beat and hardpacked but it didn't matter. I got to ride with Dick Burleson!

Missouri - I only rode one race in MO. It was a National Enduro at St. Joe's State park area. It was called the Lead Belt enduro due to all the old lead mining done there. It was really weird. It was a bunch of sand left over from mining days that was on top of a lot of slick rock and roots. It poured rain all day and I hated the day. The A/AA section there is tough and has a "waterfall" section that has you running down a creek with 6-8 drops (waterfalls) down the length of it. Ton's of good youtube videos of that section.

South Dakota - I didn't get to ride my actual dirt bike in SD but I put quite a few miles on and offroad on my Africa Twin adventure bike. We saw all of Custer State park, Needles Highway, Etc. It was a great ride on the old gravel access roads off the beaten path. Both my wife and I weren't impressed with the touristy crap like Deadwood, Sturgis, and Wall Drug.

Utah - Moab. Enough said. I rode both my dirt bike and my adventure bike here and prefer the adventure bike.

Wyoming - I got to ride my trials bike here when purchasing it and rode my Adventure bike around as well. Beautiful wide open country. More Pronghorn in the state than people.

Colorado - I rode around Gunnison on my Adventure bike and at Taylor Park on the dirt bike. It is rough, rocky, high elevation. It was so awesome. Look up Timberline Trail and Star Trail on Youtube. Super Gnarly.

Arizona - Rode MTBs and Dirtbikes around Sedona, and Prescott area. Desert riding. Not my forte. Too much wide open, not enough trees for me.

California - I just recently got to ride the High Dez near Keefer on a new Honda 450L with a friend who works for Honda. Great trails. Conditions were awesome. It was the day after Anaheim 2 and had rained a ton the week before. We rode near Pinnacles? and up to Arrowhead Lake. It was a lot of double track with some single track thrown in. I was super impressed by the 450L dual sport bike. I rode it like I would my 250XC race bike and it took it well. I definitely felt the weight when jumping it though.

I may be missing one or two.. Most of those are places that racing has taken me.

This thread would be a lot more interesting if you all would add in a little bit about it. How about some comparisons
Which place was the best , the worst
How where the turn outs ?
Something more than state state state
