Virginia Looking for private MX or HS track to practice on

Recommended Posts

I'd like to get into racing hare scrambles but I don't have regular access to any small tracks or woods loops to practice on. I'm willing to put in work on the track and to help pay for machinery and/or land use.

I know most people don't want to just extend an invitation to a stranger but I'm in Gainesville if anyone wants meet up and BS so you can feel me out that is fine.

I ride a CRF450x, 30+ C or B skill level

Just me an email LCrugby12 at hotmail

The best way to find private places to ride is to starting hitting the races and meeting people.

I agree with the "go to a race" comment. Check out VCHSS.net, great organization and they are racing this weekend in Bristol.

I doubt you will get many invites just out of the blue, but stranger things have happened.

Yeah actually I live across from he RTJ track! And I don't expect any handouts but this board has always been good to me, so you never know. I already learned about the Eagle bay track which I didn't know existed.

and yeah I'd like to jump right into a race but I need to test the new suspension and tuning before I go embarrass myself.

How many of the VCHSS races incorporate MX tracks? its one of the aspects I need to improve on. thanks

I actually humored the idea just because its 10 minutes from my house but after sending them two emails without a reply the decision was made for me

I had the same issue when I first moved up here, so I didn't join. I got a response after I joined another club.

Like some of these other guys said, just start entering some races. The best practice is to do it with a ton of other riders. I tried some H.S. and just was not comfortable doing it. I always raced MX and I hav a fear of trees. I had fun doing it but I was not fast and had to make room for other riders to get past me. I know guys who just do H.S. and enduro and say I'm nuts for racing MX.
