ATV Team Race - April 7th BE THERE!

Postby Miss Mary » Thu Mar 07, 2013 12:15 pm

The annual & always excellent 6hr ATV team race is coming up at Eddieville in one month.

Get your friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc together & come ride this thing! :ride This event really is the funnest of the year.
It would be a great introduction to anyone interested in getting into the sport.

The bikes just had their first team event of the year & they came up with pretty awesome names. I want to see how creative the ATV side can get.

This thread would also be a good spot to post if someone is looking for a team mate.
Why did we have to come home from Mexico????

This is the info from the OTBG site I found for last years team race:
The 6 hour ATV race will be held on 29 April 2012 at Eddieville. The race starts at 10AM.This is an ATV only event.
Many racers are coming in from a long distance and will be arriving late. The gates will be open. An arm band check will be made on race day. If you come in late please check in at signup in the morning.
Registration is open on race day in the morning and during the MX track playday on Saturday.There is no pre-registration for the ATV race.
The Saturday play day is open to quads and bikes on the MX track. The fee for all playdays is $20.
Race numbers are assigned by OTBG and will be provided at registration.
The fees for the event are $30 per racer on a team and $40 for Ironman. There is a $10 gate fee for all entrants. You can have up to six people on each team.
Camping is open to everyone and free. Water is available at Eddieville.
Early signup Saturday afternoon. Race day signup starts at 7:00AM Riders meeting at 9:30AM.


It should be pretty much the same for this year. Although from what I remember for AA & Expert teams there was a limit of 2 riders. You can have one bike for each rider on a team, and it's ok to ride your other team members bike. That way if one team member has a mechanical the team can still finish the race. You just can't have any "extra" bikes in the pits.

Scott usually puts together a good 10 miles for us give or take. I'm not super fast or really slow & 3 laps takes me right around an hour. Weather dependent we're going to the GP this weekend. I'll ask Debbie if they have a filer available or at the very least update their website. I'm also happy to try to answer any other questions anyone else may have.

:oops: ok......so I'm going to be the hypocrite here but, were bailing on the team race.
The weather is just too bad to make the trek. We've heard that it rained hard last night & the forecast is the same for tonight and tomorrow.

No feelings would be hurt here if it were to be rescheduled like last year.

The race is still on!! The boys are laying out a grass track in case it rains. Right now the sun is shining and the wind is howling!!! Good combo!! Hope to see you guys here. I'm afraid if we get a low turnout that Scott will drop this race. We don't want that to happen!!.

How long will the grass track be in length compared to the normal layout?
