Hell, I'm in central Illinois and nothing is open yet...well because all the snow melted and it's a wicked mud mess right now. It's been in the 60's and the ground is so saturated!

FredBud in Hopkins Park (outside of Kankakee) was open last weekend and will be open this weekend. All sand.

Taylorville- Southfork Dirt Riders was open last weekend. The track was in good shape. Not sure how it will be this weekend. If no more rain it should be fine.

Taylorsville was actually where I was thinking..probably next weekend more than this one. But thanks to all I appreciate it!

We rode Fred Bud last weekend too... nice thing about the sand, when everything else is muddy, the sand is rideable! Bob... I thought I saw you out there, Saturday right?

In addition to Taylorville, Crossroads and LTM are a few more tracks in that general area that would likely be open. If the weather cooperates, we might go to Crossroads next Saturday, then race the Belleville HS on Sunday.

From the LTM site yesterday:

It's a beautiful day at the track. Track is in good shape. Track and woods open for riding. Come out and play while the weather is good. Check back later this week for track prep on Sunday.

Thanks LTM

Hi Nikki, yes I was at FredBud last Saturday. I thought I recognized your bike and number there too! I told Anne I thought I saw you there. She's home now recovering from gall bladder surgery. She said she was going to try to find you on Facebook.

I may be out there again this weekend, probably on Sunday, if the weather holds out.

      So, Im looking for a good rear tire to put on my KDX200.  Ive thought about a hybrid tire but here in Ohio we have lots of mud and loose gravel.  I was wondering what tire would be best for loose gravel filled hillclimbs but also works good in slimy type mud. but also works decent in hardpack. Main concern is the loose gravel hillclimbs, been thinking about a soft terrain tire as well such as a Metzeler MC360 Mid-Soft tire which has good reviews. anyone from Ohio have any good suggestions? not looking for a DOT tire though either.

      There's a bug in our Clubs Feature that we're about to fix. But, it's not retro. Long story short, when riders joined your club, they were not automatically subscribed to be notified of new discussion topics, events added to the calendar, or photos posted to the club galleries. 
      So, what's the fix?

      Was curious as to if anyone has any detailed trail maps that depict the easiest ( For the training wheels just coming off) to the extreme diamond trails (for veteran riders who have rode all their life)?
      Thanks in advanced!
