MT1000 2nd running

We are putting together the MT1000 again for July 17th-22nd 2011.

We will be starting at the Darby Logger Days grounds, just as we did last year. The route will be different, from the route we ran last year. The only part of the route that will be the same is throught the Gravelly's into Sheep Creek.

The route can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/mt1k2011/
The final routes will be available as soon as possible. Which means a week or so prior to the start of the event. It takes a while to get the snow cleared out and routs ran prior to the event.

This will be a mostly dirt, moderate, scenic route through the back roads of Montana. Each day will be aprox 168 miles. I recommend a fuel range of 150 + miles just to be on the safe side. Alternates, will once again be available and this year will have some more difficult sections. There will be a couple of pre-ridden single track as well that will require a smaller more woods worthy bikes.

You will have to be responable for your own sleeping accomidations. We are planning on stoping at a few campgrounds, however they will not be reserved. You may have to do some primitive camping.

We will depart Sunday AM, July 17th, from Darby. We will be returning to Darby on Friday July 22nd, for the start of West Fest.

Innie!

To wet everyone's appetite, a couple pics of the route through the Big Belt mountains east of Helena. Last year's MT1000 route didn't pass through this mountain range. It offers great riding and we've already plotted alternate routes through it for those able and willing to ride a bit more challenging terrain.

I'll repeat my offer from last year's MT1000: If anyone wants to ride the 2011 MT1k with me at a photographer's pace, I'm looking to hook up with no more than 5 others. For me it's not a race, I just like to ride, eat, camp, sleep, and repeat for 5-6 days. The MT1k will be a warm-up for doing the WABDR starting 7/31 and following the DS rally in Stevenson.

I'm up for the photographer/fisherman/primitive camp pace & will probably be going on to WABDR.

Hey Rod!

I'm so tempted to just type "IN!" but it's too early in my game yet. Had surgery for level 2 SL advanced collapsed wrist a week ago. Trying to save my wrists, job all this kind of stuff. Still, they haven't thrown any dirt over me yet...

Last year's ride was great - really enjoyed it and the Rally. Good folks and I'd love to do it again. I will too, if I can.

Which bike will you ride this time?

Hey Stovey- I'm not sure what a collapsed wrist is but it doesn't sound good. Hope you heal well and fast my friend.

I had a great time with you guys last year and hope we can all do it again. After the beating I took last year on the GS, I'm bringing the 4-fiddy this year! I'm prepping it now and it'll be in fine form by July. Woo-hoo!

Could you find some routes of serious single track alternates for a couple of the days or more? It is easy if camping means no hauling extra weight on the bike. Last year we enjoyed it and will try to attend agian this year since we will be in the area to do the tour of Idaho.
