This part of the track is called "Carmichael Falls" and was once a part of the AMA National track back in the 1990s.

Andy Jefferson is the pit boss of the Ty Davis Husqvarna team. Andy isn't riding, but the 24 Hours of Glen Helen has a way of drafting fast riders at about the 12 hour mark.

There are parts of Glen Helen's massive layout that few people have ever seen--this tree-lined singletrack for example.

Riders actually get dizzy in the Corkscrew. The riders come down Shoei Hill and then ride in a circle for three revolutions before riding up the stairs of the bridge.

Interesting that they went with the 2-stroke. Maybe they are making a bit of a comeback.

HYR 24 HOURS OF GLEN HELEN

(10/18/2009) Ron Lawson

The 2009 running of the 24 Hours of Glen Helen is now done and in the books. And once again the results showed that there's no substitute for experience, The top three teams all had former winners of the event or had heavy Baja experience. It was Team JCR Honda that won with solid performances from Colton Udall, Nick Brozovich, Ryan Dudek and Benny Breck. The fifth team member was, of course, Johnny Campbell, who didn't ride, but was responsible for the win in no small way. The team ran flawlessly on its CRF450X, trailing in the early laps but eventually winning by over a lap.

The team that turned some of the fastest laps was Northland Kawasaki, with Robby Bell, Taylor Robert, Steve Hengeveld and Ty Renshaw. The man behind that team was Bob Bell, who has prepped more Baja winning motorcycles than anyone. A few minor issues took them out of the lead: two flats, a broken radiator hose and the like. Last year's winner was the dark horse of the event. Team Zip Ty Racing showed up riding a Husky 300 two-stroke and rode a great race, just waiting for the leaders to show any weakness. Ty Davis was team captain, with Trent Pugmire, Chris Keefer and Gary Sutherlin pitching in. The team dropped almost a lap early in the race when they ran out of gas and had to push into the pits.

Number one on the hard luck list was Team John Burr. They got as high as second place, then Gordon Ward flew off the course on a fast section of whoops, crashing in an enormous pile of rocks. He survived, but the John Burr Kawasaki was damaged and eventually lost all its oil.

Brad Goolsby was once again the ironman winner. Glen Helen Racing experimented with a live feed to the internet, showing laps times and results in real time throughout Saturday. Official results will appear soon on www.glenhelen.com.

There were a surprising number of two-stroke entries this year. The one that was in the hunt was team Zip Ty Racing.

Andy Jefferson, there's a name from the past. He was riding Huskys then and is still with them. Third overall is damn good!
