Thought this would come in handy........



March, 2009 Las Vegas, Nevada – Casey Folks, Director of Best in the Desert, today announced that plans are firming up for what is being billed as the greatest long-distance off-road event in this decade on U. S. soil. The latest news is Folks has received initial approval from the BLM for the entire course, which ends at the Dayton Events center in Dayton, Nevada, outside of Reno, Nevada.
Racers are being encouraged to sign up early using the letter of intent from the Best in the Desert Web site to receive a Best in the Desert early sign-up bonus of a special gift that is bound to be put to good use by every racer. Limited supplies are available, so racers and their teams are recommended to sign up now.
“With stops each night at ‘Camp Adventure,’ racers and their teams will have the opportunity to make repairs and adjustments to their vehicles - in a controlled environment,” Folks said. “They’ll also have great bench-racing opportunities, maybe even make some new friends, and I feel this is something the racing community will enjoy. The work area is a big part of the experience.”


The first day, racers will run 330 miles and stop for the night at Tonopah, Nevada. The second day the course is 356 miles, with an overnighter at Hawthorne, Nevada. The last leg runs 300 miles and ends in Reno, Nevada. Each of the nights at “Camp Adventure” will offer the opportunity to make some repairs, strategize for the next day’s route, and set the racer’s minds at rest ... if they can get some sleep! With the night’s action including live music, a beer garden featuring both hops and root style, these nights will go down in off-road racing history as some of the best.


The adventure in your race vehicle at this event will be a life-changing experience you will never forget. The question is, are you and your team ready for the challenge?


Schedule:

Time Trials Tuesday August 18, 2009 in Las Vegas


Contingency/Tech Wednesday August 19, 2009


Race Day 1 Thursday August 20, 2009 Vegas to Tonopah


Race Day 2 Friday August 21, 2009 Tonopah to Hawthorne


Race Day 3 Saturday August 22, 2009 Hawthorne to Reno


Awards - Reno, Sunday August 23, 2009


Further information is available at www.bitd.com.




Race this thing!!

rjdills,

I am working on the lighting... can you tell me the diameter of the fork tubes between the triple clamps, and the center distance between the two fork tubes?

I hope to have a picture of the headlight this weekend...

Thanks!

Jake

Jake, I'll go over to the rental garage where I keep the bikes tomorrow and get you the dimensions. It will be awesome to get custom lighting on this baby! Thank you SO Much!

I'm thinking we have two more major hurdles to clear; the bike could use new rear suspension, and we need riders. If we can get those things lined up, this bad girl will be ready for a race!

How about it guys; ideas? Volunteers?

Obviously, I would love to have my butt on the seat for a section, but barring that, I am sure I will be sharing chase/pit duties with Bomber and RickF...
