Maryland Easton 5/21

Recommended Posts

Don you asked for my opinion and I'm going to give it to you. CONGRATULATIONS:thumbsup: The track was in the best condition I've seen in years! I'm glad you guys are listening, although sometines we get tired of screaming. I can see you and Chris spent a lot of time dumping sand and mulch on to the track and it made a HUGE difference. 1. Traction all day long; not the usual concrete slab. 2. Mulch held moisture which created some good lines thru the turns and challenging breaking bumps. 3. The new disc set up did an awesome job I heard a lot of positive comments and some suggestions. 1. You should post a sign to let riders know what times you will do major track maintainence. I've got to give you a B for the day. Keep improving, be consitent and I mjght give you an A:banana:

I was there on Sunday the 12th and thought the track was awesome! Lots of fun. Corners were great was able to try out different lines all day long and was agressive in all of them. Didnt have to tip toe anywhere on the track. The jumps are all forgiving for the most part and having the option to choose the large jump or the smaller one makes it much safer. Havent been there since the DELMARVA mx days due the track going downhill but its great better than ever if you ask me.

They need to do a better job flagging though. Many, many people fell without them knowing at all, not safe. I had to tell them once and that guy had 6 people/bikes around him helping him up. Riders there did a great job of doing the flagging but it shouldnt be up to the riders and spectators if you ask me.

All in all I had a great time and will be back for sure.

A/B riders will probably be bored with the jumps as I am a C rider and did all the jumps there by the end of the day pretty easily. But there are plenty of places to practice different lines, whoops, and tons of great corners to carve up. So its still worth it for higher level riders for sure. I used to race C like 5 years ago anyway havent raced in a long time. When im fresh and attacking the track I might maybe be a mid pack B rider haha but that goes away after a lap or two. At the gym twice a day right now to get that endurance and stregnth back though.

      I'm currently active military and have 4 years to decide on what to do when I get out. I have post 9/11 gi bill so I can go to college or technical school for free,  and I love the northeast and saw there's a good amount of mx tracks up there, good roads for motorcycles,  and excellent mountain biking. 
      I'm here for any input on good jobs up there that some of you have, I'm currently looking at real estate but they often work weekends.  So if you have a job that you don't hate going to everyday please let me know what you do and if you want to say the good and bad parts of it.
       
      thanks in advance

      So I'm starting to get a bit sick of riding the same old stretches of quad/sxs trails along the mass/NY border, and am looking to stretch my dualsport's legs a bit more in New England. 
      I know there's plenty of legal riding in the Western Mass state forests as well as class four roads in VT, I'm hoping there are some well traveled riders who can give me some recommendations for technical bike oriented trails in the area, or point me to riding groups who seek out such things.

      MCI is pleased to announce we have been working our butts off to create what we feel is the best Stump Jumper in quite some time! We first took the opportunity to (again) hold a Fall Sand Run. What that means to you is a more pleasant enduro experience. Pretty colors, no bugs, and virtually zero over-heating of the bikes/you. The fall is the best time of the year to ride, so come ‘on out and pin that thing!

      First on the agenda, we took a long hard look at NOT sending you down 539 in the morning so you know what that means… you’re going to get something a little warmer, a little “slower” to start the day. Trust us, we engineered things so you can start you day by testing your time keeping skills. No ridiculous “Tricks” that waste your whole day, just a fun way to show all you know how to get the 00/00!

      After the “warmer” morning you are going to be treated to an amazing route that crisscrosses the wonderful forest known as Bass River. The majority of your day will be filled with fun, flowing, smooth, clean pathways that have been painstakingly maintained by the elite MCI strike force. All you old MX guys, does the words “MX special tests” mean anything to you??? Ah yes, I can hear the rev-limiters popping now… If you come out of Bass River at the end of the day without a smile welded on your face, I’d recommend selling you dirt bike and taking up knitting.
