Damon just let me know this event has gotten some discussion going on ADVrider, great! I rode it in 1995, after working the event the previous two years. It was so much fun in so many ways, and the experience left me with a deep appreciation for the state of Nevada that won't go away. It really is a beautiful place, if you don't mind the lack of green! Riding the Rally was an eye-opener. I should have had a dual sport bike with a soft suspension for my ride, but instead rode a stock KTM that was damn near rigid. At the slow speeds I was traveling the bike pretty much beat me to death! But it was a helluva experience. Of course, I owned Trail Rider at the time and covered it for the magazine. Recently I pulled the Trail Rider stores, added some more thoughts to them, gathered a bunch of pictures and published a Kindle book that's now on Amazon, if anyone's interested. Hopefully I won't get flamed off the site for gratuitous self-promotion (I won't post a link, just do a search), but it was a fun project and I think a lot of folks will enjoy it.
If they ran the Nevada Rally again, I'd for sure be there in one capacity or another. I don't think I'd ride it, though. Once was enough. I was slow and ill-prepared then, and now I can proudly add "old" to the mix as well!

Paul Clipper wrote a Kindle Book on the subject but was too shy to mention it. Here it is for your reading pleasure:

http://www.amazon.com/Nevada-Rally-A...s=Paul+Clipper

Paul's Bio:

Paul Clipper got his start in magazine writing by taking a trip to California in 1976 just to see what would happen next. He was hired as Assistant Editor at Challenge Publication's Dirt Rider magazine, working under Editor Rik Paul. His auspicious start lasted only two months before Challenge killed the title and left both the editors jobless.
A small amount of freelance photography and writing, as well as a job in a commercial photo lab, kept Clipper on the West Coast, where he eventually landed a freelance job with Rick "Super Hunky" Sieman, writing copy for a pair of enthusiast car magazines. This association led to a job at Dirt Bike magazine when Sieman was asked to come back and edit the failing title once again (he was the creator of Dirt Bike magazine in 1971).
Paul Clipper signed on as Managing Editor in late 1978, and within the next six years the pair worked to make Dirt Bike the number one off road motorcycle magazine in the world. A disagreement with the publisher of Dirt Bike in 1985 led Clipper to take a job with KTM America as Advertising Manager, and his West Coast residency ended in favor of a move to Ohio.
In 1986, Clipper bought New England's Trail Rider Magazine from the second owners of the title, and he began a small publishing company to deliver Trail Rider to its growing list of subscribers every month. Clipper was the publisher of Trail Rider for more than 24 years, writing hundreds of feature stories and columns, and shooting thousands of photos along the way.
In summer 2010, Clipper sold the Trail Rider title and retired from the off road scene. Permanently? Probably not. In the mean time he stays active riding dual sport bikes and street bikes, and digging through his archives to find more things to publish!

There was no Rally in 1996 which was a shame. This video was the 1995. Also a shame is the terrible audio in that video, but worth watching.

And is Peterhansel on the Yamaha? I'll have to dig that up or maybe Paul Clipper has a pic. That was a bike I admired as well and not sold here in the U.S.

Yeah, I suspected the date was wrong seeing Peterhansel on this bike, it's actually the bike that, evolved, was used by Orioli at the Australian Safari in '96. Thank a loto also to Stteve for the picture. If you find other, would be great

It think it would also be nice to collect on this thread other photos, and especially entry list, results of the various editions of Nevada Rallyes. If I find anything useful on Italian magazines of the time, I'll post it here

The word is Casey lost his ass on the last multi-day event he put on. Waaaay too many BLM & Nevada Highway Patrol headaches, logistical nightmare. Norman might be talked into it simply because he won't know how much money he'll lose!!!

I didn't ride it, but for some reason I have memorabilia from it.

I have results pages from some of the days of the 1995 Nevada Rally but they're buried out in the garage in my memorabilia box. I was pretty "green" when I rode the event in 1995. It was really cool to go back years later after I had really become an enthusiastic rally spectator and see all the famous names that I had been racing with!

There was an article in Cycle World at the time. Not sure if I have that issue but when I get home in January I'll look.

Nevada 1994 results

found this on a French magazine


funny that Peterhansel did it on a XTZ660 in '94 and reverted to an "older" 600 in '95
this was the French XTZ prototype for Nevada '94
