  1. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory racing’s Jarvis Earns a Hard-Fought Runner-Up at Erzberg’s Hare Scramble with Billy Bolt Seventh June 18, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis has finished as runner-up to Alfredo Gomez at the 23rd running of the ErzbergRodeo Hare Scramble. Just over three minutes behind eventual winner Gomez, Jarvis rode yet another highly impressive race around the Iron Giant. Once again overcoming a cautious start and having to work his way passed countless riders during the faster, dustier sections of the course, once into the more technical sections he worked his way towards the front but ultimately ran out of time to challenge for the win. Once again showing himself to be one of the best ever ErzbergRodeo competitors, Graham Jarvis made a typically steady start before increasing his speed as the unforgiving Erzberg terrain intensified. Making up time on his rivals through the extended Karl’s Dinner section, the veteran racer worked his way towards the front, passing all but one of the early pace setters. Closing in to within just over three minutes of Gomez, Jarvis claimed a well-deserved runner-up result. For Billy Bolt getting to the start line at Erzberg was arguably a bigger challenge than finishing the race. Riding a bike just once during the three weeks prior to the event following a foot injury that required two operations, Bolt showed incredibly determination and focus to earn a highly creditable seventh place finish. Reigning AMA EnduroCross and FIM SuperEnduro champion Colton Haaker endured a challenging Erzberg 2017. Claiming an 11th place result, Haaker suffered with arm pump and a number of small crashes while charging hard during the early stages of the race. Battling his way through the hugely demanding Karl’s Dinner section, he then pushed as hard as he could to claim his first Erzberg finish in 11th. Graham Jarvis: “I’m happy with second. Hats off to Alfredo he was very strong, he rode a great race, and I just wasn’t able to get close enough to him early enough. I didn’t get a good start and then lost five or six positions when I messed up one of the hills. I was behind then in some of the single file wood sections. I had to fight my way back. But I felt pretty strong during the second half of the race. I pushed through Karl’s Dinner and made up some time there. I seemed to get a little energy back after Karl’s Dinner, things were pretty close to Gomez – if he’d have made a mistake I might have been able to catch him. I don’t have any complaints, it was a difficult as it always is but there’s not too much I’d change. The younger riders are getting more experienced so I’m pleased with second.” Billy Bolt: “It’s hard to be disappointed with a Hare Scramble finish, especially when I’ve only spent one-day on a bike in the last three weeks following my foot injury, but I feel like I could have delivered more. I felt like my speed was where it needed to be, but I just made one or two mistakes that were costly – against riders like Alfredo, Graham and Cody you just can’t afford to do that. My foot was sore, so I was trying to ride in a way that I didn’t use it too much. But when you’re trying to ride across Karl’s Dinner that’s not easy. I guess a seventh place result isn’t too bad. Congrats to Graham and the other podium finishers. I’ll be back stronger next year.” Colton Haaker: “It’s certainly better to finish this year, rather than not finish. I put a lot of work in this year because I really wanted to be one of the finishers. I thought I was in a pretty good position early on, but suffered with arm pump. I pushed crazy hard, passing riders, but had so many simple falls. I kind of came good after Karl’s Dinner, had a cool battle with a few riders and eventually got to the finish.” RESULTS – ERZBERG HARE SCRAMBLE 2017 1. Alfredo Gomez (KTM) 2:17:06 2.

  2. So, I am now the proud owner of a 2021 KTM 300 XC-W erzbergrodeo. I thought I'd just post a follow up here for any other Californians who are tempted to buy a bike out of state like I did... read this and be better prepared than I was. It wasn't HARD, it was just time-consuming (as is everything involving the CA DMV). Buying the bike was the easy part. I bought my XCW from Gresham Powersports, east of Portland, OR. They were totally cool to deal with. All the paperwork was done remotely. I had to get some signatures notarized and then sent them that paperwork via UPS. Once that was in their hands it was a done deal. So, last Thursday afternoon, I left Auburn and headed north. Stayed on Southern OR Thursday night and then drove the rest of the way Friday early am. Got to the dealer at about 10:30a. I was all done there and loaded up by 11:30a. Then, I hit the road back to CA - got home about 9:30p. &%$#@! me that's a long ass drive... 1,200 miles in ~30hrs. Rained off & on in both directions. Got home & rested. Sunday, I rode the bike @ Mammoth Bar (my local rinky-dink OHV area) for a couple of hours to break it in. Went to the Auburn DMV today to complete the paperwork. At least they have online appointments now - you can get in (virtual) line via their website and you get notified via text a number then you monitor the webpage to see what position in line you are. Way overdue. But, &%$#@!. I hate the CA DMV. First I had to actually take the bike in the have the VIN verified - and they won't do it while it's still in the truck. So I unload it. They look at the VIN & engine number and match it to the paperwork/MSO. FFS. Ok. Done. Check. Next I had to prove to them that the bike was approved for a red sticker (a CA thing) - by providing them a copy (I had to give them a printed copy) of a document from KTM (which I found here: https://www.southbayriders.com/forums/attachments/551312/). Of course they could have totally looked at the document online, and even printed it at the DMV.... But, OH, NO... I had to get a printed copy. Got document copied. Back to DMV. Gave them copy. Paid use-tax, paid sales-tax. Got red sticker. Good until June '23. Done and dusted. Did I mention, I &%$#@!ing HATE the DMV? Now if you bought from a CA dealer, this would all be handled for you. But when I called around CA dealers there were none left in CA...
  3. "While at Machu Picchu, one of the seven wonders of the world, Ryan was counting down the days for our dirtbike tour." Todd explained just moments before heading out on the trail. It's hard to look down upon the Andes as you fly into the Cusco valley, and not have your mind blown with the enormity and vastness of the terrain below the wings. If you are crazy passionate about dirtbikes, it's even more mind blowing to imagine riding it on two wheels. Todd and Ryan joined up with Scott Englund of MotoMission Peru for a custom three day hard enduro ride. The ride catered to their skill levels, journeyed across the type of terrain that the boys wanted to ride, and filled their minds with hundreds of unforgettable images of Peru. Each teetered on the edge of comfort as Scott managed to push them beyond their norms of riding in Colorado. The official tour video...Check it out! Toothbrush anyone? "There is something special about leading a father son duo into the back country." Englund said as he explained how his own father bred a bit of adventure in his own heart. "I get people from every corner of the planet. They are all awesome peeps, but to share this experience with Todd and Ryan, that's a thrill." Three days of exotic dirtbiking. Beginning at Englund's home, the trail begins just minutes from the garage. "No trailers, you'll see what I am talking about. You won't even have time to warm up before we hit the trail." Englund explained. What goes on inside of Motomission is nothing short of a dream. Scott has been running MotoMission Peru for a number of years. He is a social entrepreneur who gives 100% of the profits of the business to charity. His family is supported by a number of people and/or businesses who believe in his mission. Sponsors have supported MotoMission with equipment and gear. The marketing arm of the business are happy customers that tell others about the experience and share the included tour video via social media. Scott does what he loves to do. Riding dirtbikes, exploring new areas, cinematography, adventure, travel, serving others, business...It all fits his lifestyle. You can see it in his smile when he hands over the bike to you at the beginning of the tour. So many views! "I've got the coolest gig on the planet!" Englund states. "In my wildest of thoughts, I couldn't have dreamt up a better situation. I live here with my amazing family, all who ride, and I get to do what I love to do, while giving it all away." It's not all happy and easy. "It really sucks when you have to haul a bike out of a canyon in backpacks." recalled Englund of a time when a customer launched a bike off a ledge so steep and deep he couldn't see where the bike had landed. Good times with Dad! Todd and Ryan got the full package. Englund was able to lead the men into an unforgettable riding experience like they had never imagined. Beyond tired, they had to make it to the next town for the night. They rode a section that is typically a two day ride, all in the scope of one day and a little bit of night. "My hand is so tired I can't squeeze the clutch anymore." Ryan said as the cramping in his forearm curled up his hand. When it comes to an exotic dirt bike adventure, MotoMission Peru has the holeshot. With countless untouched routes, an epic landscape, and a personable and capable guide, you owe it to yourself to check out this little gem in the Andes. You can reach Scott at Scott@motomissionperu.com to find out more about tours and riding in the Andes. He is always ready to talk shop! Also, don't forget to "FOLLOW" this blog if you want to have access to MotoMission Peru's new posts and videos.
  4. I was watching the Erzberg race a few weeks ago and it occurred to me: why doesn't anyone use a trials bike? It would need to have enough power/top end to get up the crazy hills. I think knobbies would be the best choice for tires. The low seat height and light weight of the trials bikes would seem to be a big advantage in the crazy rock/hill sections. Any thoughts?
  5. The official ride video...Make sure to watch in HD The day started by waking up in a lavish hotel room at the Aranwa Resort in Urubamba, Peru. I had a couple of hours to eat breakfast, gear up, and drive across the valley to another fine hotel to meet up with Imad. A month prior, I received an email inquiry about running a one day hard enduro tour. I was available for the dates, so I began discussing the options for the tour. What I found out was that Imad, who lives in Dubai, was vacationing with his wife. He had come up with a brilliant plan to offer a full day at the spa for his wife which in turn allowed him to take advantage of another type of "SPA." Brilliant! Normally, I begin the tours from our headquarters in Cusco, but in this case, I was able to accommodate by starting at Imad's hotel in Urubamba. This gave me an excuse to bring my entire family to the valley, put them up at a nice hotel complete with all the fixings, and combine it with a one day enduro ride that has kept a smile on my face for days. I hung out with my family when I was at the hotel, then snuck out for a ride with Imad, then returned to spend more time with the family. Perfect! A couple of happy fellas I arrived at the Tambo del Inca, one of the finest hotels in Urubamba. I unloaded the bikes, prepped the lunches, warmed everything up, then headed into the lobby to find Imad. There he was with his happy wife who was about to be pampered for an entire day at the spa. She couldn't have been more happy. Imad was stoked to be able to enjoy Peru on a dirt bike. A win-win in my book! His wife made sure that I was legitimate. She was a bit concerned about me bringing him back in one piece. She mentioned the fact that there are two young kids who have a special relationship with their dad. I also fit that scenario, so I piped in my story to appease his wife that it was indeed my plan to bring Imad back alive and in good condition. Within minutes, Imad and I found ourselves mounting up on the two Husqvarna TE 300's. The trail head, just a minute away from the hotel was screaming for us to come try her out. The trail started out with a daunting strip of tight rock walled single track that resembles a jungle tunnel. It wasn't raining at the time, but it was extremely wet from the rain the night before. Imad pounded out the section with a bit of wonder about whether or not the rest of the day would be similar. I think it scared him a bit. To his pleasant surprise, I explained that it's not all as difficult, but that we would face countless obstacles in the days ride...But not to worry, it would all be worth it. Just a little rocky section to play around on We continued to work our way up the canyon with a goal of reaching the lower lake. I figured it would be a worthy goal to reach the lake, have lunch, then work our way back down the valley. Along the way up, we encountered numerous switchbacks, rock gardens, open meadows, creeks, and many a wet alpaca poop pile. The ride was just what Imad had hoped for. As a guide, I never know how people will do with the altitude. It can be a butt-kicker for some, and for others, it hardly makes a difference. With Imad, he struggled with it at first, but somehow caught a second wind as we reached the bottom of the last big obstacle before the lake. It was a rocky staircase climb that typically wreaks havoc when its dry, but this time it was soaking wet. We had our work cut out for us. Like two mules, we worked up a good lather climbing up each of the rock steps. I made sure to tell Imad that the view would be worth it. Within a few minutes, he had the opportunity to agree with me. The view was just what Imad needed. In fact, he was so stoked about the view that he told me he wanted to try to reach the upper lake. We had plenty of time, so why not? Taking a break! The stakes go up on the route between the lakes. The terrain we saw below the first lake was only a warm up. Imad confirmed that he was indeed ready to give it a shot. Atta boy! The coolest part of the section is a waterfall that cascades down the mountain as the trail goes right through it. Check out the video if you want to see what I mean! We worked our way through the water, up a number of tight rocky switchbacks, and finally through a stand of scary red-barked trees where one would expect to find a creepy murderer with an axe. The ride is so fun that you forget the altitude. Just past the forest was the final climb before the upper lake. Imad was feeling his oats at this point. We crested the top to discover a sight to behold; The upper lake. It's absolute beauty. It was a perfect place to eat our lunch, take a million pictures and get ready to ride around the side of the lake to an untouched area where a dirt bike has never been. That is always a special treat that I can do for my customers. There are hundreds of places like that which can be explored on my tours. The upper lake never disappoints...well worth the effort! A bit of food and drink, then we mounted up and began a fun trials type of terrain complete with granite rock slabs, bright green grass, tons of mud, and views that continued to blow us away. We played around for a good hour until it was time to begin our descent to the bottom of the valley. Although it is the same trail, it seems like a different valley and route altogether. The downhill is sketchy. It's fast and rhythmic, but there are so many places to find yourself on your face. We experienced a couple of crashes, but coming down provides such a thrill...in fact, it's that type of thrill that keeps me riding. Pure smiles all the way down. A little ride through a waterfall We made it back to the hotel with nothing left in our tanks. No gas, nor energy. Completely smoked, but so satisfied! Another typical ride in the Andes of Peru! Make sure to check out the ride video to see what I am talking about. I can't wait to share another one next time around. Stay tuned and make sure to follow the blog so you can see the next post when it comes out.
