You heading out tonight or in the morning? It's supposed to be a 10am start so you have a little wiggle room in the morning. I'm bailing after work.

im trying my hand at the USDR racing this weekend.

this isnt the exact race, but its very similar.

http://usdesertracing.com/race_flyer...nd_2_flier.pdf

The format is similar to that of D.37 but not exactly the same. Methinks it will be fun to try something a little different.

They actually do a course ride on Saturday and the loops are only 17 miles. Beginners do two loops and everyone else does 4. Everyone is saying that the courses are much faster. Also, it s a live engine start, which will be great so I dont botch the start like last time! I can let the 650 eat the turf and if im quick about it, get in front of the rest of the beginners!

we will see!

Heya Eatpasta, hope the mrs. is doing ok.

Hmm, Innit Round 3 that you want to do this weekend?

Looks quite hectic, especially on a 650! You guys are so blessed to have races every other weekend.

Have a good one, will be checking this thread out when I get back. I fully expect to see videos, a ride report and more photees

Just getting caught up on your thread, eatpasta. I've only done a handful of races myself, so I'm still pretty much a rank noob as well and each race is like a whole new experience. You're definitely right about fitness, the fitness level required is far beyond the capabilities of the average Joe off the street, I don't think people realize just how demanding off road racing is. All the races I've done are hare scrambles back here in the east, so the terrain looks a lot different, but I'm sure the feeling on the start line is the same and once you get into the thick of things your heart rate also pegs at 180+ and maintains at red-line for the duration, just like back here.

Good luck your next race, it's great you have someone with a lot of experience to help - that's invaluable.

BTW, here's my most recent race, it turned out to be a very difficult mudder, carnage everywhere, it felt like my heart was going to explode in several situations. There's some helmet cam footage in there, too.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=559618

We have a race coming up in our series this Sunday, I'm not 100% sure I'll be able to make it, but so far that is the plan. I will be looking forward to seeing your next installment. As a beginning racer myself, it's good to see others' take on their experiences, so keep the reports coming. Good luck, and good luck to the Mrs., too, hope she recovers fully.
