Trying to figure out if Jack (my 15 yr old son) and I are going to Majestic this weekend or the Hare Scramble.  If the Hare Scramble, we will both be in the Beginner Class.  Would be my third time doing a hare scramble and his first.   

Alan, are you going to have a parking area blocked off?  Will let you know on Saturday if we are coming or not!

Not that I have a vote, but I would go harescramble.  I'm sure Jack can handle it, he was doing great on the 450 at the MB.  Plus this harescramble is the best event of the year so.... 

I'm also racing beginner class.  Unless it rains then I may do the afternoon race.

I'll have a spot blocked of as usual.  In previous years our spot has been a little light but I'm still doing it anyway because we can. :)

That would be great if you are in the same class as us, Jack had a good time following you at the Monkey Butt!  Will check in on Saturday!

I don't know if they've run final mileage on it yet.  I'm going to guess not, but we will keep an eear out for that number.

Jack and I had a great time at the Hare Scramble today!  Trails were in much better condition than I thought they would be with the rain that we had earlier in the week.  Thanks Alan for setting up the reserved parking.  Always lots of fun when we can all hook up at these rides!

It was a great race, and we had ONE THOUSAND people through the gate.  that is HUGE.

I had a good race but not such a good start.  I got on the line in the front row of beginner, and commented to a friend how the guy in novice who was the last one to go must have been pretty embarassed.

Then the race started, I got moving, made it about 20 yards, and got PLOWED into.  down on the ground, hit my head pretty good, bruised a bunch of stuff.  But I was OK (aside from thinking Chris was someone else,oops) and finished the race.

I was 81st of 81 so I had some shit to make up.  but i passed a bunch of people on the first lap, mostly because the back of the beginner class was filled with people who can't ride AT ALL :)  Ended up somewhere in the 50s which is good considering where I started.

Adam also is now "King Quad" after his 12th place finish, decimating 10 guys on race quads on a 13 hp, air cooled, shaft drive, children's quad.

After laughing at the guy down the row smoking a cig with his helmet on before the race, I had a shitty start. With only 13 hp and almost zero suspension i knew this would be a rough one, i wasn't prepared for how rough.  I barrelled into the pack, jammed into the XO section, and right away i regretted my enthusiasm as two riders in front of me went over the bars i knew i was going too fast, and i went too, and as i heard my visor go crunch, and i saw all the quads i had just passed ready to run me over, all i could think was "please let her little atv still be upright" and it was. I remounted and quickly booked with the pack to the first bottleneck on the second downhill, where it was a parking lot. Thats where i got the rest bulk of passes, i made my own line through the bushes (sorry bushes) and went up the hill. From there all i saw were the "A" quads that lapped me in lap 3-4.
I was not at all prepared for how different that was. It was unstable as fuck in off camber, and powerline hill was fucking plain SCARY on that little thing. I kept putting my foot out on plain instinct and forgetting to lean over, and it kept trying to overturn.  It's all upper body/arms, no leg. I couldn't lift my arms this morning. Oddly the reverse of bikes, the course got easier as the laps went by. It was about 7 miles i heard, i did 4 laps. Bonus- only used barely a half gallon of gas to boot. Now thats a cheap race! And i don't think i would ever do that again, at least on that quad haha. Maybe if i could borrow a real racer.

Matt, did you ride the Harescramble?  Also, wondering who won the expert class and if the guy that appeared to have the lead on the first lap by a couple of minutes was actually in the race or was he just making sure the course was clear, out ahead of the afternoon race?  Didn't seem like anyone could be that far ahead of the pack after one lap?
