Quarry Run -- AMA National 2 Day D/S -- Hancock, NY -- August 9 & 10

Any of you inmates going to the AMA 2 day dual sport at Hancock, NY? I went a couple years ago and had a real blast. There were 400 entries! Did 165 miles the first day and only rode half the second day doing 90 miles. Great trails and some tough hero sections. Two of us are headed there this year.

For 2008 they have added an adventure ride for big bikes.

Here is some info I copied off their website for this event.

---

We will be hosting an adventure ride in conjunction with our dual sport. Bring your KTM 950 or BMW and enjoy some of the most twisty ans secluded dirt roads in the northeast! Route is separate from the regular dual sport and geared toward adventure bikes.

The Quarry Run D/S is a challenging event. More of a trail ride. The Blue Stone region of the Catskill Mountains lends itself to fantastic riding trail and road riding opportunities.

A lot of these trails have been used for the ISDE and World Enduro Championship Series.

2008 will feature many trails that will be used in our upcoming two day National Enduro!

The event is lightly marked, you will need a route sheet and odometer.

The Quarry Run is a two day event, averaging 100 miles per day. You can ride as much or as little as you like. The Catskill Mountain region lends itself to fantastic riding opportunities, so our event is generally more of a trail ride than pure Dual Sport. You can ride a GS BMW, but you will have to bypass some sections. A hearty lunch is supplied Saturday on the course route and Sunday after the ride the Hancock Fire Depatment serves their world famous roasted chicken free of charge.

I'll be there. I've been the past 2 years and it's a ride I look forward to each year. Great trails, great people.

One year some yahoo didn't like the ride going past his place (apparently last house on the road which then turned to trail). One of the riders was telling me that the guy hauled a couch out to block the trail, and was sitiing on it cradling a shotgun.

It backed up the ride until one guy just said fug it, whatcha gonna do, shoot me, and rode around him, then everybody rode around him.

Generally the ride is supported by the community for the money it brings in, this was an anomaly.

local help?

Anyone on the list involved with the run this year?

I've heard from a buddy that it was pretty impossible last year, because of sections added from the International event.

Is it going to be toned down for the mere mortals this year?

I did it a few years ago, and it was pretty neat, though challenging.

Great event!

This is awesome ride not to be missed on your little bike of course.The hero sections are clearly avoidable as indicated on the route sheet

This will be the 7th year I've gone to this run (got flats 5 of the last 6 years ) and this is .........................THE RIDE OF THE YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you like tough stuff, don't miss this ride . They have "go-arounds" past the hero-sections for the faint of heart Because..............they don't call 'em hero-sections for nothin' They range from "WOW! That was tough, but fun!" , to..."What the fuck did I get myself into???? When is it gonna end .
This ride is the best! You'll be beat up at the end of the two day's and won't be able to stop sayin' how you can't wait 'till next year
Hope to see a bunch of you FF's there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chris





PS........BRING EXTRA TUBES!!!!!!! For both ends!!!!! Wouldn't be unheard of to need a tire or two also!! And don't forget the tire irons and some AIR!!!!!!
Just sayin'!

You hit the nail on the head! This is exactly how I felt ... beat up but looking forward to the next time.

Hope to see a bunch of you inmates there. Maybe we should pick a meeting place and time to say hello (and have a beer.)

Great event!
A guy on a GS rode the whole thing last year some hero sections and all.
Another guy rode a Husky SM with 17" street tires.

The main route had only one or 2 tough hill climbs last year ..all the rest was 2nd and 3rd gear WFO!

There was one 8 mile section on the prior yrs WEC trail that kicked some Piney butt but only because some of our crew had little if any experience riding in the mountains. You could go around that.
