2011 RMZ450
2007 RM250
I split time between the 2 mostly depending on the track and conditions/weather.

I race every round of a 12 round series every summer. On the off weekends I will either go to a practice day or race as a day pass member at some other local series. 40 year old Vet B

2008 KTM 300 XC that's like new from lack of use, and a 2009 Gas Gas 280 econ trials bike. I probably get 50 hours of cycling in for every hour of moto.

2010 KTM 250 XC 2-stroke. Mostly ride high-elevation tech single track, but have a goal to try to get back into racing (desert, I guess) this year. The mountain bike has become my primary two-wheel obsession the past couple years though.

I primarily just ride mountain bikes now. I recently sold my 2004 RMZ-250, but if I ever want to ride I'll just hop on my dad's 2014 Factory-Edition 450.

Let me be the first to welcome you to the USRA desert series (assuming you are in SLC)...First race of the season in Feb 7th, in Mesquite...

There are GP's, Hare Scrambles, Hare and Hounds (including two NHHA's), and a couple Enduro's on the schedule this year. A little bit of everything.

Thanks and thanks for the info.

I grew up racing in the Midwest (off road, GNCC-type events, National Hare Scrambles, etc.). After college I moved to Vegas and started doing the MRAN series and some WORCS. Didn't enjoy it; at all - insane dust, rocks, chaos. I was stuck behind slow goons, but couldn't pass because I couldn't see. I would take a break for a few months, get the itch and go do another one and felt the same way. Just got to where it was more fun to ride with my buddies (same turf, but with visibility, which was fun).

Last year I did a Hare Scramble in Montana. It was awesome (tighter, more technical riding - much more my style). But, the closest one is about 6.5 hours away; the rest of their series is WAY up in Montana.

I've kept my eye on the USRA series, but I'm assuming they're very similar to MRAN, so I haven't really had much interest. I've ridden Cherry Creek plenty of times (its ok, but my least favorite place to ride out of my staple of areas), and driven pas Knolls / Dell / Wendover and, again, it just looks like MRAN-esque territory. Wide-open fast rocky dusty desert.

Let me ask you this: there is so much great riding in the Spanish Fork / Diamond Fork / Hobble Creek area, they can't hold events out there?

The enduros might be fun - do you know which ones they are?

Thanks again.

Ride - 2008 SXF 450 (though I honestly haven't swung a leg over it in ages - my own fault).

Also have - 1987 YZ 125 (My first bike still laying in bits waiting for me to rebuild her one day...)

Want - 06 RM 250 (18 of yrs of MX and Iv'e never even touched a Suzuki. I want to experience an RM before I get too past it).

The forest service won't let them race in AF/Diamond Fork/Spanish Fork/Hobble Creek...of course, I'm not sure if anyone has asked about holding an endure format there (like the Idaho City 100). For a traditional Hare and Hound or Hare scramble there would be no way of doing the start (no place for a bomb run)...but an endure format might work if one of the clubs wanted to jump through all the hoops to try and get approval (the enduro format is the only way they got a race in Chimney Rock down in the San Rafael Swell....the BLM said No to the bomb runs but approved the endure).

Lots of dust in the desert, no way around that (unless its raining, then its muddy). And so for the most part (whether its st George, Cherry Creek, Monticello, Knolls or Wendover)...you get a lot of dust, its the nature of the beast if you're racing in the desert.

You might try some of the spring and fall races...in the past few years, there have been great conditions at these events (so like Feb-April, and Sept-Nov) with little dust.

The enduro's that I know of, are Wendover and Chimney Rock. They ran an endure on private property up in Yost last year which was an absolute BLAST, but that race was replaced by a NHHA so its not happening this year. I've heard a rumor that St. George might be an endure, but I have no idea if that is true or not.

I love the enduro's...but I also love the hare and hound format as well (anything were you never ride the same trail twice). I'm not a fan of GP's and Hare Scrambles as the courses get hammered from a few hundred riders riding the same trails a bunch of times..

That is sad. Kyle had one built by Varner in 2003, and I had that thing in 2004 when I moved up. By far the best 125 I ever rode. I'd jump back on that thing in a heart beat if I had the chance.
