I'm interested in the Enduro, and I'd be in the 40+ class on a 400cc bike. John we could fight for last place.

Emily might want to give it a go too, if there's a spot for new lady riders (under 40) on 350's.

I'd be a "Super Senior!"

Class of one, but I bet I can still nail down last place....

I'll probably ask him to add a Sportsman Class (non-competitive) to make people more comfortable.

In the interest of expanding the event and bringing more participants.....I would highly suggest a Sportman Class. I think a lot of ADV'ers would sign up for that one.....especially if it came with a sticker to put on the bike....a badge of honor for a first time racer!!!!!

Im all over the 40+ class!!!!! and I would suggest a 55+ class as well. I know a guy....ScramblerDavis who might be motivated to purchase an old Bultaco and do the 55+.

Plenty of time for me to snag another KTM 2T, and I'd do the 55+ Sportsman, it would be a great deal of fun

I was wondering if with a strong enough showing they might consider adding a "D" band-I suppose that equates to the Sportsman Class you mention, cool!

How do I sign up? This will be my first rally out west so I plan to do westfest then drive out to Moab and finish off the adventure at the RMAR. Trying to get some other flatlanders to come with me.

There are some pretty cool roads between Silverton and Moab.

Enduro

Count me in! I haven't done an Enduro for almost 2 decades.
I need all the help I can get, so I might just put the Revloc clutch back in to help stalling,
I'll take all the DS stuff off to save weight, and get into better shape.
Sounds like a lot of fun.

I'll do it the same way I do roadracing. Do the best I can and have fun.
I know I won't be in the front, or the back. Some where in the middle is just right.
And after a couple decade's, serious is not in the vocabulary regarding racing.

Maybe a pro-leisure class, with beer stops along the course....
