Last Dog Standing 2013

Ok - let's hear it..... who's game?





http://www.prairiedogsmc.com/html/la..._standing.html

I raced the GP at Glen Helen last weekend and what a cool facility....

last year the race generated the best review I have ever seen in my life for anything - Max Gerston's review of LDS....

http://youtu.be/cA1mDUcIKKk


Mike did pretty well last year...will he go again?

I doubt I would even qualify for the actual event seeing as you need to place pretty well in the qualifying race.... I may give it a go because, what the hell right?

Anyone else?!?

honestly the bike thing is the #1 reason why I probably wont do this event. Even if I got bikes for free, I would hate to needlessly abuse a perfectly good bike. I dont care about injury, or not finishing.... I care about my KTM!

They can't stay pretty forever. I just took all my abused shit and bolted it on, fucked up seat and fenders, the shittiest pipe and muffler I had. Still have the stuff, so IF I decide to do it again, it's going to be parts bin special racing
(somebody here called my bike that at the time so I'm using it)

I'm starting to consider it, How does the qualifying format work? It'd suck to drive 11 hours just to get eliminated in the first round.

As far as I can understand, it's like Erzberg. They have a Hare Scramble and you have to place in the top 50% or something or you go home right away. Then there are 3 rounds of the actual tough course, each round harder than the last.
Mike raced it last year and he decided to hang it up after the second round I think.....it looks pretty nasty....

I raced it 2 years ago, the inaugural event. In that event the 1st qualifier was a Grand Prix format, on the GP track, race for 45 minutes and finish in the top 50% of everyone, not just your class. Then you had to finish the first round within 1 hour of the leader to continue on to the final round. I made it with about 5 minutes to spare, but found I was the only one in my class and I was really, really tired, so opted to not ride the last round. Had I done it and finished, I would have received 125% points. As it was I still got a 1st and 100% points.

I know they changed the format some last year, and I imagine they will do something different still this year. Best thing you can do is watch the D37 website for info or contact the Prairie Dogs and get the scoop from them.

Thanks for the info guys, another inmate and myself are trying to cajole each other into coming out from Colorado for the event. I don't think either of us care about points. I just want to get past qualifying as GP style MX stuff isn't my cup of tea, but falling down the side of a mountain is.

Id love to try this event but I know deep in my heart that I wouldn't qualify for it and if I did, I wouldn't belong there and I certainly woulnd't make it past round 1
