Indiana Hare Scrambles

Indiana

May possibly be moving out there, while I was checking the D15 site I started to notice all the HS races are only 1.5 hours in length. Whats the reason for that - I am use to a 2 hour race time frame in my currently local series.

Also, can anyone give me any insight as to what the courses are like out there, my understanding about IN is its pretty dang flat.

Thanks!

I've been living in CA since '94 but used to do Hare Scrambles, Enduros and MX in Indiana & Illinois back in the '70's and 80's. All the HS races were 2 hours back then. The Northern half of the State is VERY flat but the Southern half is VERY hilly. There's a lot of sand in the North and a lot of clay in the South. Trees, trees and more trees is the norm for races there.

the races are usually 90 minutes plus a lap which usually end up around 2 hours total..

Like it was mentioned earlier, the north is pretty flat but the south is hilly with lots of trees. The three series I listed also run quads. MAXC is D15 AMA sanctioned. The other two are not. Some of the places on the D15 schedule are single track only. Most of the tracks are in the central/southern part of the state. Tracks are mostly in the woods but usually will have some field sections. You can expect creek crossings, rocks, logs, hill climbs, mud, and sometimes a MX section. HS racing is doing very well in Indiana with three series right now.

Doh, and of course I would be moving the the north-eastern part of the state - if things go though! Hope gas is cheaper there, as it looks like I would be doing a lot of traveling to the southern parts. (Southern part sounds a lot like what I am more use to).

If things move forward, I will post up here and see if I can find some riding buddies - as I will be losing the land I ride on as well as my partners in crime. Only guy I know out there is in Indy and rides a huge Harley.

Thanks for all the responses thus far!

4 series if you count district 15. i live in east central area, about 1 hour south of fort wayne, i have 15 miles of trail here.

you could head up into michigan too. lots of enduros in IN, and MI too. You can pretty much find a race almost every weekend if you do both and don't mind driving a bit.

I am looking at the fort wayne area currently. If things pan out I'll let you know and we can go for a ride.

Thanks for all the info everyone!

Done deal. I will be starting my new job out there on the 25th of this month. I will be in the South West side of Fort Wayne. Toss me a PM and give me your contact info, we'll hook up and go for a ride. I am use to crazy hills, but I will adjust I am sure. I also havent ridden at all this year minus a very few play rides, work has killed my riding this year. - I get sore just looking at my dust covered bike.

Welcome to Indiana. Here's a thread that I started last year for us IN riders to find others to ride with. We have a lot of good people participating on it and even a few up in your area I believe. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=891823

Plymouth Blackhawks are having two more Hare Scrambles this year. Dates are September 11 and October 16. We are located in the North Central part of Indiana. Straight shot down U.S. 30 from Fort Wayne to st. rd. 17 and south to In. 8. We have a web site with some info, but it's still under constuction. We are also on Facebook. Come on over and give our race a shot we'd enjoy having you.
