Oregon 2011 Funky Chicken sign up is open!

Recommended Posts

Go to http://www.etra.net/funkychicken.html

The 12th running of the Funky Chicken will once again be an AMA West National Hare Scramble and, of course, Round 5 of the OMRA Cross Country series.

The course is another bruiser with the usual assortment of new and old and up and down and in and out and fun and misery and dust and mud and ferns and blackberries and trees and roots and grass tracks. But there aren't any rocks!

Check out the videos, shirts, sponsors and entry forms. Any questions can come to me through PM or the email on the entry form.

Hope to see you there!

For anyone that has not attended this event, you should! This event is held on private property so this is the only chance you have to ride it. It is a great venue with plenty of west side single track action as well as places to pass. Put this one on your bucket list.

I think all the NMA guys are scared to go head to head with the Cali invasion crew:devil:

They issue race numbers at sign up for those that have not pre-registered. You do not need numbers on your bike before the race.

I plan my entire deployment schedule for the year around this race. Not only is it in my hometown, but it is the best hare scramble I've ever ridden. Competition is pretty stiff with the national guys coming up from california. Absolutely a top-notch event, weather looks good, wouldn't miss it for anything!

Planning on making this assuming I get my bike together in time. My boy (5) is all amped up about riding in the 50cc class... Does anybody have any info on the kids race? Is there a seperate track that we can spectate the whole race, or is it a shorter woods race?

Thanks!

Hi Blake, the 50cc course is basically the 1-mile grass track at the top of the hill. It will be a 30-45 minute race. The grass will be slippery and there will be elevation changes. All good for kids with gusto.

Cheers

My hats off to the ETRA guys... They put on an amazing course this year. It is sweet you can work with the Big K, to secure this venue.

The course was gnarly, and my boy and I had a blast... He didn't want to leave when our races were over!

Did anyone see that idiot in the Open C class that tried to jump part of the log pile and ended up wrecking in front of everyone??? What was he thinking??? :ride:

Hey Blake, did you see Jake and Shane out there on the bumble bees? (125's) He got some good vid of the track.

Shane was there but is too fresh off Lasix to spend much time in the dust. The other 125 was in the row behind me off the start on an 08 or older 125. He seemed to have his game face on so I didn't chat with him.

Blake rode on Saturday so our paths didn't cross.

Don Matheney grabbed my camera and took some pictures, and I have a quick helmet cam video up. I will try to get 1 whole lap uploaded tomorrow.

Later,

Jake, that is world class video. Please put on youtube. We spent 5 months cutting that course, all to be undone in 30 minutes! Cheers!
