I'm iffy at best but may go the volunteer route too. Especially if I could get a little riding in to prepare for the Mex1K. Does anyone know if your a V can you hit a few sections a day or so early......or anything that would help me get my mind right for another rally. I know there will be training at night right

Only guy's who get to really "hit" the sections are the combo and sweep vehicles.

357, I can hook you up with some really sweet training routes that are very similar to SB routes. Best of all they're not far from the SB.

Hit me up via pm.

That's not a good idea, really. First, lots of the forest sections are gated when there's not racing there. Second, lots of the open sections have 25 mph speed limits on them. Third, a bunch of the other sections require buying a permit. Fourth, nothing is marked to help you find your way around.

So, if you're even thinking about it... enter and race. Prices might never be this low again.

It's an experiment. By lowering the price, do more people show up? If so... then it works and I'll keep the price. If not, the price will change. So really, everyone should call all their friends and let them know what's up.

I think Gilkey is coming, so your plan is working

Ok, what's the entry fee etc.....now.....I thought last year it was going to be around $500 or so. Not saying it's good or bad just can't afford that and still make the Mex1K

Thanks man! Sign up as a Volunteer with the Sandblast rally site but connect with me in February to see if my evil plan is going to happen. We're testing this weekend!

Anders,

In the interest of getting more racers it might be helpful to update the rallymoto.com site. The latest press release on that site is still about Sandblast 2009. I would be happy to volunteer to help keep it updated if you are looking for volunteers there. I am no web developer but would be happy to help update with relevant info like 2012 RallyMoto points.

Or, perhaps even better would be to include bikes on the very cool updated nasarallysport.com site (which looks awesome by the way!). My concern is riders outside of ADV probably wonder if RallyMoto still exists if they were to look there for info.
