As a complete noob to racing with lots of dreams and little for experience, this is an amazing way to learn the ropes. Please keep us updated about whatever dates you're thinking of Jimmy. I, and likely others, need to make work arrangements way in advance.

Interested....

Jimmy...
Fun to meet, ride and hang out with you in Tahoe this past weekend at the Adventure ride.
As we discussed, I am interested in attending one of these classes later in the year. Please keep me posted on future dates...

As a refresher and to cover a few quick points in this thread without having to read 20 pages, here it is:

We now have a successful and proven program for this class that will teach you how to navigate rally-style through the use of a roadbook.

The class is 3-4 days and requires a high level riding ability. In the works (and likely before this years Dakar) we may offer a introduction to rally navigation basics with simple routes that can be done on a Adventure bike without the true mapbook or GPS equipment.

You should have your own bike set up for Rally to do the class. I have rentals but they are usually spoken for from international riders who have to fly in. This is a great time to troubleshoot your setup and learn how you like to have your mapbook, odometer, GPS arranged.

We just completed a great class last week, thought it was a little too hot for my tastes with training in mind. I am open to repeating the class again in late October/Early November if there is interest (5 riders). Following that(late NOV/ early DEC) I plan on setting up a few days of long stages training through the use of routes through HogWild and myself. I'll set up the infrastructure so you can come out and do it unsupported for a small fee to cover the costs of support and mapbooks.

trying to figure out fundraising to get to the Tuareg rally in March, I'd love to come down and do some of Scott's routes again but I'm not sure I'll be able to find the $$ or time...sigh

As of right now we are getting close to an early November session. The dates to consider are Nov 6-9. Let me know soon if you are interested.

Additionally it is very possible some top riders will be training in early December on longer stages were we will have assistance and be able to do the necessary support and some light training for experienced riders. If I can get the time and there is the interest, I will try and set up a parallel experience for "fans" on adventure bikes.
