We'll be there as well. Son racing 100B. We'll be sticking with our Michelen (spg?) tires. Bring extra jets to be ready for the weather.

You are going to love the track....a variety of wood trails and national level MX tracks.  We helped Guy install two bridges that made crossing the river MUCH easier.  We had the pleasure of breaking in new trail - Dirt Week was GREAT!!

We did not change tires or jetting from our Michigan set ups and had no problems.  The tires were either intermediate or soft...we had a lot of rain the week we were there and the soft tires worked well.

Good Luck!!!

We live and ride at 7,000' elevation here in AZ, so we will definately rejet, wondering if plain old stock jetting is the hot ticket.

And most of us will be on either soft/int or int tires.....

Thanks for the info.

Any gearing suggestions for the following riders:

30A
40A
50
200B

All on mx bikes except the 50 codger is on a 400WR yamadog.

I heard that the track is only 3-4 miles is this true and is it wide open just threw the fields to that creek? and run a little tight woods or any at all?

There is about 4 miles of woods, some tight some not. there is also a LARGE grass field, and a huge MX track. Not sure what is included in the WORCS race.

Looks like we should bring some extra sprockets as well. We're geared a bit too low for a lot of wide open stuff. Good thing there's practice on Friday, for some time to dial in the bikes.

Elevation is around 1000 feet so if your jetted for 7000 you'll be lean.

Dunlop 756, Michelin S-12, Maxxix IT tires were real popular. Michelin M12 frt/ S-12 rear would work real well too. I don't think you need to gear real low, it's not that tight. Guy said the woods trails would be different than what we rode at DW but the stuff across the river would be included.

The track info said practice was from 10am to 3pm Friday. We're not worried about being geared to high, but too low. Back east he races on a lot of tight single track.

Guy said that WORCS wanted all skid steer cleared trails i.e.WIDE.
I would geer high, grass track is large and flat with one g-out if they include it traction is spectactular. No rocks in the woods, go soft on tires, creek crossings are awesome with loamy soil and high steep banks.
Motocross track is extremely fast with a great flow.
My money is on Josh #211...See you at the RFGP in Ft. Smith

The creek crossing should have bridges.  I helped Guy install two bridges while at Cooperland for Dirt Week.  Enjoy!

So how'd everyone do that attended?

Kevin took 4th in 100B. Pulled the holeshot. Trails were tighter that we expected. Woods and fields were pretty dry on Saturday morning. MX track was the worst portion of the course.
