2014 Perry Mountain Motorcycle Club 24 Hour Challenge

June 7-8.

You ever ridden a 24 Hour long Hare-Scramble? Here's your chance.

Perry Mountain 24 Hour Challenge(Perry Mountain Motorcycle Club) Mapelsville, Al.

I'll post a link just as soon as they have one up on their web-site.

I've finished 3rd in 2012, 4th last year in the 40+ Ironman class.





12 Hours in

I was just talking to my buddy on facebook about getting back down to this race either this year or 2015. I've enjoyed reading your race reports from perry mountain. did you ever do a report/recap from 2013?

I believe I did...Hmm..can't remember for sure. I know I did one over at www.Bamarides.com though. I had a good race there 2013. I set a goal of 15 laps before the lights went on, a little over 10 mile laps. I done them in 5 lap sessions, then limited my breaks to 15 minutes. I got that done, but...my after dark laps didn't amount to as many as I had hoped.

No mechanical problems, just lack of proper fitness level. I rode more laps than the year before, but fell to 4th in the 40+ class(the largest class there)...

I'll try to make it there again, but as of now my work schedule interferes with it.

I'll try and keep this updated as information comes out.

Did it in 2010. It WILL push you to your limits. But you always look back on the tough ones and remember them fondly.

I hate to say it, but this event has been getting fewer entries the last couple of years. I hate seeing it dwindle down.

We need to spread the word, although it's still a BIG event, we need more entries.

I'll be in the 40+ Iron man class once again, 49 years old.....next year-50+ class.

I'll be on my trusty XR400 again, although, after 3 consecutive years on the same engine, it's getting a new top-end.

I did it in '07 & '08. It kicked my butt both times.. Not to be undertaken lightly, & I didn't. Just a few tactical errors.
