24 hr dirt bike race on a 990?

I have been working on bringing Adventure bike racing to the PNW for the last few years.
I thought maybe some of you in OC might find this interesting.
This year we finally have enough dedicated riders to field a team of big KTMs against the 450's and smaller bikes at the largest 24 hr in the country.

The 24 Hours of Starvation Ridge race is coming up quickly October 26th and 27th. Myself and Alex from Konflict Suspension have assembled a team in which we will be competing on our adventure bikes.
We have named our team The Heavyweights
Several ADV members are involved with our team.

our facebook page can be found at the address below. Please checkout our progress as we setup the bikes and prepare ourselves for the ultimate test.
http://www.facebook.com/advheavyweights

Our team consists of riders of varying skill from trail riders to Baja 1000 racers.

Team riders:
Radek Burkat- KTM 990 Adventure
Darryl VanNieuwenhuise- KTM 950 Adventure
Alex Martens- KTM 950 Super Enduro
John Isenburg- KTM 990 Adventure
Richard Miller- Honda XR650L
Jason Williams- KTM 990 Adventure

We have had a lot of interest from companies in the industry willing to support our race effort:

Giant Loop Moto- www.giantloopmoto.com
Konflict Motorsports & Suspension- www.konflictmotorsports.com
Renazco Racing- www.renazco.com/
Tigatu Clothing Company- www.tigatu.com
Cyclops Adventure Sports- www.cyclopsadventuresports.com
Coastal Instruments Inc.- www.facebook.com/coastalinstruments



Attempting to race the 24 Hours of Starvation Ridge on 500lb + adventure bikes has yet to be done, this will truly test our skills, and possibly our sanity.

Race information can be found here: www.overthebarsgang.com

What do you guys think? are you ready to race your beloved RC8's?
Would you if you had a venue to do so?

You're only 1859 miles from me, according to Google Maps.

The contingency fund doesn't run that deep unfortunately.

Lyndon Poskit and friends did the Baja 1000 on a 950 if I remember correctly.

Either way Rock On.

Hey- you got Radek

After reading all the reports from he & the"Wans" I believe you've got one really experienced off roader there. Go Radek!

Good luck! Probably doable unless it gets muddy. I can't imagine 24hrs trying to wrestle an adventure bike in those conditions.

Thanks guys!! Our team is coming along nicely. Last week we received conformation on our 6th and fastest rider Jason Williams.
later this week we will start prepping bikes for a rough and fast race.
We aren't just going out to ride, we plan a win of some sorts.
This is mostly a night race with at least 13 hrs of darkness. If it does not rain and all goes well, we plan an excellent finish.
