I did the Grizzly there back in May and talk about a mudfest. I probably had about atleast 50 pounds of mud on my bike and myself when we finished.

Me and my bike after the race

I saw a few people spraying their bikes down with WD40, I dont know how much that helped the mud not stick, but I am sure it was better than all the mud I had sticking. My bike is air cooled so I didnt have to worry about it boiling over, but there were alot of people that were. Might want to think about getting some nylons or something to stick over your radiators, I heard this will help with mud sticking to them. I saw alot of guys taping an extra goggle lens to their visor to extend it so they could put their head down and still see and not get roosted in the face. I ended up taking my goggles off not even 1/4 mile into the first lap................I think cutting up a 2 liter pop bottle would work as well. It was a slippery mess. I had almost wished I would have dropped my air pressure down, I could hardly give it any throttle without loosing control. I had kids on 80's flyin by me. Not sure how long this race will be, but a hydration pack is a must, especially if the conditions are kinda sounding the same as it was for the grizzly.

Have fun washing your bike when you get home and good luck at the race. Hope some of these tips I mentioned will help.

Stay out of the ruts they can get deep enough to bury your bike. Look for fresh lines. Good luck :applause:

I spray the motor, under the fenders, rims, etc down with PAM cooking spray making sure not to get any on the rotors. works pretty good.

I rode last year. What a mud fest! Was thinking of doing it again but too much rain last couple of weeks. Last year was a 7 mile loop. People did the best with new tires and spikes or lots of sheet metal screws in the tires. Big ruts! Hope it helps, and good luck.

Dont think I will be heading out there now has rained all night. I went out last night and looked around and there is a ton of standing water. I had to be in four wheel drive just in the parking lot and was barely getting around. Good Luck to all who go. Maybe I will just go out and take a few photos.

I rode 200 amature, got 5th (3 laps). I made a lot better time of it than last year. I did only manage to fall once, when I did fall it was that huge mud pit in the middle of the course, head first. Home made drink system worked great, studs in the tires made a world of diffrence.

That mud hole ended my 3rd lap, I went right down the middle and hit a deep hole,,,, I went down with the engine running,,, gulp gulp, water in the engine. What a mud bath! Sorry about your moto,, sounds like you were in teh second moto and I did not get any pictures of that one, I was getting ready for moto three.

molleedawg,

You gota try the gallery man,,, you are going to love it. There are some super cool features for uploading. The one I like the best is publish to the web right from your desktop. I upload hundred of pics at a time with a few clicks. Also, the gallery builds your thumbnails, sized images and retains the original file size. Users can add comments to each picture. You can search, and it searches the comments,, super cool.

Joe.........
