There's a LOT of red tape here, Garry, unfortunately. I'm not an expert on the matter, but I've heard those in the know talk about land use impact studies and the like being necessary before the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) to even consider permitting an activity on public lands. Anyone can see the trend of public lands closing to motorized use and surmise what the likely result of any such impact study would be.

The ridiculous total-lack-of-personal-responsibility/I'll-sue-you-for-any-old-damn-thing culture here is a huge hurdle in accessing private lands.

I sympathise greatly for sure, its the exact same reason we lost Day 1 of a 2 day event with the Yilgarn Rallye this year

Okay fine! Tim's body position looks way better than mine and he flew at least 10 feet farther!

#83 is Damon Powell aka: Team Dual Dogs, great guy. I remember Andrew Horton working out of the bike junkyard over by Burbank Airport. I built a bunch of XR muffler end caps for him. What ever happened to Andrew??

Seemed like Andy kept Four Strokes Only going for quite a while one way or the other. Not sure at all what he's up to lately. I pretty much never do Facebook anymore but he is one of my friends on Facebook, as is Damon, but I never really interact with him there.
Damon did the Nevada Rally twice. His preferred message board avatar is of him in a cool rear end drift at the 1994 Rally prologue on the ATK he got from the factory. Damon is another guy who loves long-distance rallies and doing big miles.

Damon "Dual Dog" Powell here.

Yeah, that was an awesome race. Not sure if I have pics of Peterhansel or Meoni machines, but here are some links to pics and the video of the race on Motoworld I uploaded on YouTube:

Awesome thread revival. I have been poring over some old map books and i saw this advert. i was about to start a thread asking about the history of this event when i found this thread. Google doesn't give much but it does show notifications from BLM regarding temporary closure of public trails for the race days. Must have been a blast!

I wouldn't be caught dead in those jumper suits, Michael! Lol. That was the French and Italian thing to do!

Acerbis America was run by Franco's right-hand-man, Bill Berroth (Motonation) who did much of the race marketing along with Casey Folks.

The way the race was handled in many BLM and Forest locations was by helicopter and a PA system telling visitors that a race was in progress and not to move.

And BigBearJoe's comment about sparkling water is correct. I was dying of heat stroke in my last 30 miles of the race and a doctor's helicopter was landing to give riders the bubbly water from exhaustion. I just about spit it out but damn I was dying of thirst in that 120 degree Mesquite, NV heat! lol
