Last race of the year

I entered in the Delaware Enduro Riders Hare Scramble last Sunday. It rained a ton, was even a tornado watch. The race started at 1pm and lasted 2 hours. My class was C-Vet. First 3 laps I was 6th, 8th and 7th respectively. 28-33 minute lap times. I (meaning my body) ran out of gas. I crashed alot, picking up a muddy bike can drain a person. I wound up finishing 11th. One more lap and I may have made top 5. Oh well, was my first hare scramble, I'm a Moto guy. I plan on doing better next year. There were huge mud pits scattered about that would suck up half of your bike. I don't think I was ever that dirty.











A short video. You can see some of the bikes still standing upright stuck in the mud. LOL

We just set up cone courses at local short oval tracks, and we have one big race in the parking lot at Miller Park.

I've only ridden a motorcycle a few times, and that was mostly on neighborhood streets and some easy trails. It looks like you guys had a blast!

It was alot of fun, but tiring. I played it safe and pulled off before I hurt myself or my bike. You can see in that video where I could have been.....and most of those guys were a loooong way away from the pit area.
