Over Christmas break I may be going to Tecumseh To do a little indoor riding. Any tips on what to do, how to do it? And is it worth the 4.5 hr drive?

Thanks,
Farmer T.

Tom, there's also an indoor riding spot in Zeeland (next to Holland), which is about 1-1/2 hours closer for you. Check out www.zeelandmx.com if you're interested.

Definately check out Zeeland over Prosource - Zeeland is much bigger and more fun for big bikes. I rode Zeeland a few times last winter - including opening weekend. Nice place and they are constantly making track changes as well (and it's pretty safe too). One plus it has over some other indoor places is the lighting is pretty good, it's well heated, and it has REAL bathrooms! :)

Just another tidbit about Zeeland - it's run by an ex-pro MX'er. His career was cut short by a collision with John Dowd. He used to have a really nice track by his house, but housing expansion around it put an end to the outdoor track.

hmmm. Alright. Are the jumps at Zeeland freakishly steep or not?

man,
well here are my thought on prosource:
yesterday i drove through construction zone after construction zone to get out to Tecumseh. about an hour into my drive i decided to call out there and make sure everything was still strait. this chick was trying to tell me it wasn't a good day to pick my bike up because it was race day and things were hectic.... so, gimme a break i had numerous conversations with the owner about picking this thing up.
so i get out there, she pulls all the paper work out and such and i'm like hey
" can i see the bike " ? she looked at me like i was wasting her time... so i look at the bike, it's cool, i pay for it and get all the paper work... i'm standing there she walks away... i go hey " can someone help me load this thing into my truck?" all eight of these girls look at me dumb founded... well, no... i say never mind and storm out. the guy from pro-action suspension was there to work on a bike, he helped..
ok, here's the kicker..
i go back in and i tell this girl that i'm going to look at the track.
she tried to tell me that i had to pay a spectator fee because it was race day.
i just spend $2343 in a matter of minutes..
the guy who was running the races kinda laughed and let me in.
the track is great for 50cc - 110cc. i cannot see how anyone can race this thing. it looks like it's all first gear.
i will not buy another thing from prosource let alone ride there.
if my bike wasn't such a steal i never would have gone out there.
oh ya, it's a 2003 rm250 $2343.. a local b rider gets two a year and this was one of his trade in's..

hay dude who bought the prosor.... bike..... Its a deal but all the bikes that they sell there have been raped... thats why its so cheap..... And im hopeing it didnt have a orange seat!.. Prosorce last year had some bad ass woops i will give them that.... And its not a place for a 450 because most of them jump form one side to the other in a sec..... and the kid whos dad owns it is a ****ing dick...he likes to start fights with people and runs into people because he just rides the used for sale bikes form the store and dont care

I asked my friend Nick Boley who is in the top 10 in 125 B for indoor mx, and he said that that track is probably one of the most dangerous tracks in MI.

We must have missed you everytime, Nikki! We have been there quite a bit this year.

I thought Gil injured himself in a car accident, and that's what screwed up his knees? I used to have a membership (before the housing developments) to his outdoor track. That wasn't bad either. He rode once too...still pretty dang quick for his age.

I've also heard a lot of bad things about Pro Source.
