2009 AMA Nat'l Enduro in Mt and WY!!


This is great news for those of us up here!:worthy::ride:

So, if any of you out there run into Larry of Billy Hamilton with WPS be sure to give them a big thank you! It is pretty amazing to see what they have been able to accomplish with their annual enduro that they've been running at the "Rockpile."

I am definitely marking off the weekend of June 28th on my calendar!

With my KTM 505 I'd like to say that it will be like this... :ride:

but I am sure it will be more like this...:D

but it will still be this...:ride:

Wow the Upton race is one of my favorites and to see it will be a National is great!!!! Paul Douglas is the promoter and he is a great promoter. Great news!!!!!!

This is great news! I grew up in Wyoming and have been meaning to go to the Upton race so my Mom could come and watch my girls and I race. If all goes well Minnesota will have some representation at the Wyoming National next year!

What type of race is Upton? Is it in a treed area with single track or is it more desert type terrain? I grew up in Riverton and that was more like desert stuff. In Minnesota we have mostly woods races.

I can't wait... :D:worthy:

Wow, I was thinking about trying an enduro for the first time and was thinking about Upton.

Having back-to-back enduros in this part of the world is nothing short of excellent! :worthy:

Marking the calender. :D

Upton has been through the forest area up there. Very tight trees in places. If you do A/B stuff the last test is a 20 mile butt kicker in tight trees and canyons. This year we got a break and the temps were only in the 80's the last few years it has been near or above 100. Most guys finishing the long course feel like they have accomplished something just by finishing. The terrian is absolutly a blast. Now what they have to do to meet National Enduro standards I'm not sure but what ever it is I have no doubt it will be good.

      Three of us decided to get the heck out of the Midwest weather as we are suffering a bad case of the wife is driving us crazy right along with the cabin fever.  A couple of us have been to MOAB once before but we're only three and we like a bit larger group when the riders are fairly well matched.  However, and this may show what I DON'Y know about MOAB, the one day of riding I was able to do out there last year before having to head home for a family burial, it seems to me that the skill level required for most of MOAB is fairly dialed down compared to Taylor Park so matching up skill level as a group seems less an issue.  Now don't skin me alive if I am wrong, I already said I don't really know the area yet.  So anyway, if anyone is interested in joining us on the trail, we'd like to know about it!

      Weather should be awesome, thinking of taking the day off to go ride rampart or something else close Friday. I'm not one to go riding by myself so if anyone is thinking about it let me know! My usual riding buddy has plans.

      Spring is almost here and I was wondering if anyone has been by pipestone... How is the snow looking?? MTDOT pass web cam is down so I could not get a visual on the snowpack. is the lower area still a bit wet or is it starting to dry up a bit. Looks like we have some really good weather this week. I think I am going to head there this saturday to check it out but if anyone has any updates post them here.
      Also, last year was my first year there and we only hit it in the late fall. We really liked the area and were able to go 4 or 5 times. If you are a regular shout out and lets go riding.... I plan on spending a lot of time there this year.
