Not much...depending on the location of the race. There are several dune areas in Southern California to ride, they just don't typically hold NHHA rounds there.
Doesn't really matter--he knows how to ride anything. Throwback-type rider in that he rides at a elite level in X-Country races (NHHA), SCORE (Baja) races, short-course GP style WORCS stuff, ISDE (multi-time class champ), AMA MX (qualifies for mains at AMA Nationals Outdoors), WEC, GNCC, etc.
Navigation is where he needs work...but he is a total class act, can ride the wheels off the bike, has the factory backing and has the right temperament for rally imho.
