I race under a few of these races for points(off road series) but i dont travel all over to them all. Just wondering how many of you people race / have a PNWMA licence. Just rode Bear Creek yesterday and it was pretty good, but nothing compares to Vernon.:cool:
Yup, I've done seven events so far this year. Plan on doing the last three in canada. I've never raced in a NMA event though. I haven't talked to anyone from Washington who have said that the trails we race on in BC aren't some of the best they have ever ridden. They also say we are very friendly and nice people. I guess they haven't met all nine people in Vernon. just kidding.
I'm thinking of going to that race in September too. But i've never riddin in the Duffy Lake area. How is it>tight, open,sandy,rockey???. How do it compare to Vernon and Kelowna?. Maybe i'll se ya there. Are you guys racin in Vernon in October at the new'night' rooster and the the normal Big Rooster. I'll be sure to be at the Big rooster but no night riding for me(no,lights on my bike:p ). I dont know why they moved the Vernon races to October because it's going to be damn cold and thats close to snow time here(in the mountains):scream:
The Rooster conflicts with an NMA event so we're going to stay on this side of the border to race.
Never been to Duffy Lake so I'm not sure what we're in for. If it's anything like to terrain that Guy rides in the Fox videos then it should be a blast. Fast and pretty open. I'm hoping it's a lot like Lytton.
I rode at Duffy Lake a couple weekends ago and I was on some VERY tight, technical trails with tonnes of roots, logs, creeks etc, etc. But there were some spots that were open and fast like grassy feilds. My cousin said that the trails we were on were the ones that Guy Perrett made ( he knows Guy !!!!). They were not that sandy compared to Kelowna (Bear Ceek) but some spots were a little soft. Im looking forward to going back there later this summer :)
