Perry Mountain 24 Hour Challenge

I'll be racing the 40+ Ironman class this year....No, not on the KLR again.

Who's gearing up for this event this year?

It's normally the first weekend of June....I think.

My brother(left) and myself after last years 24 hour.

Out 6 rider team went down to 5 when a death in the family kept one away. We went down to 4 riders when one guy was a no-show, went down to 3 riders after one guy done just 4 laps, then down to just 2 after dark....from 9:30 pm to 4am my brother and I kept the bike moving....but by 4, we were DONE !!!!! We both took a nap, then rode a few more laps each before the finish at 10am. The bike looks, and lasted, better than we do.

I wonder how bad the damage from the tornado that went through there last weekend is. If things go well I may come over, camp and watch the race. I don't have a bike that can run lights anymore so no racing for me. and I've been out of racing to long to just hop back in. I got a friend that normally has to work the track, so I may come hang out with him.

Y'all running the XR400 again this year?

I'll be riding the same bike, although in the 40+ Ironman class. The team thing didn't work out to well last year. I'll be going at it alone this year.

I Wish you luck Al.. It will be my 5th year at the event,PM is one of my favorite.. You guys are lucky to have such a well put on event in your backyard.. I usually race them, but its a bit far to bring a bike and all the stuff (people ) it takes for a good ride. Stop by and say HI..

6'1" 235 lbs. Makes an XR400 look small.

I'm going to try to make it to watch. I'm in no shape to try and race it. Might build a bike for next year and run a team.
