Hey, I planned on comming last year but never made it.. I am definately comming this time. This will be my first race, so I have a few questions... First, can I enter more than one class (the TT class and the 250 beg/nov class)? Also will anyone be out there not this weekend but the weekend after, because I am not sure if I should enter the beginer class or the novice class (im looking for someone to tell me what class to enter). Like I said, I have never raced, but I have been riding for about 3 years. Last, do I need anything other than numbers on my bike to make it "race legal"?

Im looking forward to seeing all of you there!

Yes you can enter as many classes as you want. To be race legal you will need a number and the proper protective gear.

Here is the website for "Splendora MX" http://www.splendoramx.com/

You can contact them and see when they are open for practice. My advice would be to ride the beginner class if you have never ridden before.

We look forward to seeing you there in October! Don't forget, the track will be open the Saturday before the race for practice as well.

I had a few questions.

1.) What exactly is double gating?

a. Where Beginner/Novice riders all line up and take off at the same time.

b. Where the Novice class lines up then leaves, followed by the beginner class.

c. None of those

3.) How well do you think I'll do in the 250 Beginner class? I'm consitantly clearing everything except the tripple (which I'm doubling), I have every section down pretty smooth, and I'm not too bad in the corners.

4.) I'm planning on registering in the TT/ATM class as well. Is this hard racing or are people out there kinda playing around together? I watched the GMBII video (I think it was II) and I saw everyone stop and wait for the 393 bike to go by. Did that occur in the TT/ATM class? What should I expect from it?

5.) Would you recommend camping out there after practice Saturday, or just heading out bright and early Sunday morning? I'll be staying about an hour or so away. So to make registration I'd have to be headed out around 5:30. Meaning waking up and getting loaded up at 5'ish.

Thanks in advance guys! :thumbsup:

I will try my best to answer :thumbsup:

1. B

2. You will do fine in the beginner class. This sounds like your best option however you will have a fair shareof sandbaggers but that is at every race.

3. The TT/ATM race is for fun. Not saying that anyone will be putting but it is not a knock down full on race. We do wait on the last lap just before the triple step up to allow Mike Berg to take the checkered flag.

4. I believe you can camp there....however personally I like to sleep in a real bed before a race! That is all personal preference.

Looking forward to seeing you there !

actually I believe we wait in both motos...but I could be wrong. They will inform everyone before the race starts.
