I ride a CRF450x with a steering stabilizer which I know will help in the sand. Are these rallys ridiculously tough or should it be not to bad for me? Either way, Im there lol.

Arrive on time, attend the new competitor orientation class (mandatory). Ride to finish and have fun. Try to learn how to do your timing controls etc. When racing just ride where you are comfortable and aim to finish. If the weather is dry then the sand can be deep and loose in places. If it rains then there is a lot of clay that gets greasy. Don't worry about winning the thing and just ride for the day progresses you will start to relax and have more fun as you get used to the conditions. etc.

My intuition nearly makes up for my lack of good judgement. Just installed my new trolling motor
