Brad’s a great rider. HOw’d he do? That endurocross stuff looks a lot like the trails up in the adirondacks 😀 only without the spectators :lol
sad to hear. Never got a chance to meet him.
Just got my July/Aug issue in the mail a day or two ago. Been a busy summer. I’m sure the volunteers who are writing it are out riding, right now! 😀
My friend Andrew took some pictures:
I think its too bad you felt that way, Jess. It was very casual. Ah well, NEXT TIME 😀
Nice pictures, Jess. Should have come said hello! And WHY didnt you ride in the trials? you would have done well!
[QUOTE=AntonLargiader »]Hey Jason,
Does Jon have any pics elsewhere? That FB album requires a login.[/QUOTE]
Yah, they would have been Smugmugged, but the Connection Failed sometime overnight… and FB was a way to get there faster. HE’s flying home today and should get them up soon, I hope. There’s a few good ones of you floating around the ADV site, and I have video which I have yet to edit. :thumb

Think we got permission to turn the firewood pit of death on the Trials course into a bonfire, Saturday night 😀
Yes, there are several different versions of Dual Sport rides available- all of varying intensity, if you will, and I think the worst of the bunch will be on Saturday Morning. Short Ride of Great Difficulty 😀
All week long prior to that, though, Route sheets will be available from Steve Mauk at Max BMW motorcycles. Something for every skill level and every tire.
158 miles of racing on twisty mountain public roads (that have been legally closed for this race)
Date: About 2.5 weeks from now, Memorial Day Weekend. 1 day of checking out the roads and a practice, then two full days of racing
Where: Linden, TN, about an hour west of Nashville
Who: You. No previous racing experience is required. Each rider is let off at one minute intervals, so you’re racing the road, not elbow to elbow with other people.
Nice to meet you, looking forward to the in person part.
Nice to meet you, Jack. Looking forward to actually meeting you this summer. got pics of your bikes? 😀

BMW Motorrad USA Invites GS Owners to Defend U.S. Title in 2010 BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy Challenge
Selection Process Will Be Held April 29-May 2 During Adventure Riders/GS
Challenge at RawHyde Adventures
Woodcliff Lake, NJ – March 15, 2010…BMW Motorrad USA is calling upon all of its dirt-loving enduro riders to help defend the U.S. Team championship in the 2010 BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy. The world-famous biennial International GS Trophy returns in November, with three riders selected from each of several countries around the world to compete on new R 1200 GS bikes for victory in a vicious series of off-road competitions and challenges in exotic and faraway South Africa.
Two BMW GS owners and one journalist will be selected from the USA for this once-in-a-lifetime, all expenses paid trip.* Their selection will be made during the Adventure Riders/GS Challenge at the RawHyde Adventures facility in Southern California from April 29 – May 2.* This year’s “Double Jeopardy” event at RawHyde is now revamped to include two sequences: the Adventure Riders Challenge, open to all enduro riders, and the GS Challenge qualifier from which two BMW riders will be selected to compete in South Africa.
“The competition finalists will not only need strength and endurance, superior riding skills and guts, but they must also be able to navigate their route ahead, pace themselves and collaborate with teammates,” commented Laurence Kuykendahl, Community and Communications Manager for BMW Motorrad USA. “It also helps to have a sense of humor under adversity,” Kuykendahl added, “because, after all, this is all about fun, isn’t it?”
