Never been there myself, but should be this weekend.

Check the WORCS racing site. They have a description.

In the past the Kahoka WORCS / Moose Run round has featured their MX track along with creek bottoms, grass tracks and fields.

The MX track is laid out on some natural rolling terrain with some elevation changes.

I would expect to see a course somewhere around 9-10 miles in length.

We'll be coming down from Minnesota with both Kyle Nelson and Matt Stavish. As far as the big names go I would expect to see Ty Davis, Brian Garrahan and posssibly Shane Watts there as well.

Thanks for the info. Sounds like it is going to be a fun track. Are there any big jumps on the mx track?

No huge jumps on the track...they set it up for us woods guys who like to keep our wheels on the ground. If dry, the course will be pure joy. Unfortunately, the last two national hare scrambles have been extremely wet, which makes it a tough place to ride. The weather in our area has been relatively dry, so unless we get some rain between now and then, it should be a good course.

While we're on the subject, what about the cost? The web site seems to suggest that it would cost me $60 to race: $40 entry, $10 for a "day pass", which I think is the WORCS membership, and probably another $10 to get in the gate (as it is with national hare scrambles). Is this correct? It also looks like the race on Sunday afternoon is only 1.5 hours long (at best). It that also correct?

WORCS East Saturday races tend to be no longer than 1 hour. And use an ATV friendly course (they race immidiately after the bikes.)

Sunday races are usually just over two hours long and use some of Satrudays course along with fresh single track.

Short of it raining the course is probably the easist of all the WORCS East events.

Hopefully it won't rain. The last race that the UORRA put on was muddy, but I still had a lot of fun. I'll take what ever weather we get, but it would'nt
hurt to make it more of a challange.

I raced saturday. That was a great track. I really liked how they set it up with the motocross track, the woods and grass tracks. Hopefully they will have it next year. The only problem was the trails were wide. They needed some tight, single track.

Darren,

I believe Shane Watts took it all on Sunday! 3 in a row!

Check Skunkwrx.net for the complete run down.

What class did you run on Sat.?
I ran +30 C, #437, the course was a blast!

Munch, didn't your class race at 11am? If so, you were out there with my son, #053 on an RM85. He took 2nd in the 100B class. He loved the track. That sawdust was really deep on the mx track. I'm still trying to figure out how he pulled a 5th place start against those 125's & 250's in the Schoolboy class.

Sounds like he had a great day. The sawdust was extremely deep, pretty hard to pull through on the my 200 let alone on an RM 85, He must have been very quick out of the gates. The sawdust made the jumps pretty hard to clear, I tried and paid the price about every time but kept it on two wheels
and ended up overalling the the race.
Had some pretty good battles with a couple of guys on the way though. I made a couple of wrong turns but thanks to a spectator they didn't cost me too many positions and i was able to regain my position.

Do you know what all of the classes ran at the 11:00 race?


Good hearing from you

Greg,
I think you and I battled for a little. I not sure but we went for about a lap and then on the moto x track we passed back and forth and then finally I crashed going up one of the jumps and you passed me.
