Everett Endurocross, Oct 26

Postby robd0gg » Thu Oct 03, 2013 10:40 am

Anyone going? if you haven't been before, this is probably the single most exciting motosports event you'll ever witness..

I can't think of any more physically challenging activity on the planet, at least for the 10-15 minute motos they put themselves through. The winner is usually decided by attrition.. either mechanically, or physically, although Taddy Blazusiak, the Trials champion from Poland seems to have an edge over most every one else, but Mike Brown has been giving him a run for his money this year.

If your interested in going, maybe we can meet up somewhere before the race.. I am taking my seven year old grandson

I was wathing those on TV a few weeks back, and they looked intense. I would love to go but might have to make a last minute decision, wife is due pretty much a week from so I have to be ready for "all hands on deck". :shock:

what's really unique is that the arena is so small, you can really see the entire track without difficulty, and while I love (and grew up) with flat track, motocross etc, there is nothing like it when you have a dozen major obstacles and the best riders in the world struggle getting over and through them.. you could be watching someone struggle through the log pit and causing a pile up, while at the same time someone goes over the handlebars on the six foot tire crossing, and then another pile up in the rock garden, all on the same lap and at the same time..

Hey..., maybe I should enter. I can go over the bars and cause pile ups. (and that's just unloading the bike outta the truck) :lol:

I'll join you Rob and send out the notice to a few other friends......
82 Suz. GS 1100G (all there but needing restoration)
03 Yam. FJR 1300 (IBA certified)
05 KTM 400 EXC (for the real off road endeavors)
09 Kaw. KLR 650 (when I can't decide between the others)

...wherever I go, there I am!

I've watched this on tv, looks like torture. Entertaining none the less.
