    I guess I'm too old and grumpy to embrace the ebikes. That's for the next gen.

    Re: Let's get dirty...check here for rides.

    There is a race at Capeway Rovers this weekend, as well as the last NETRA Enduro of the year. I'm super tempted to jump right into racing MX, after one time at the track. A nice B card may be on the line if I place well at the enduro.

    go for the B card, that's a great accomplishment ... MX will be there allll next season ... too bad Stimilon is done, now that you have the MX bug you would have loved that shit. best weekends ever.

    Southwick is in..... Southwick. One town over from Westfield. And it's not where the Southwick Zoo is, either.

    I grew up in Southwick, so couldn't let that one slide. haha.

    Re: Let's get dirty...check here for rides.

    I did the Clarkies (Freetown) enduro and I think I've finally figured out the part I was missing with all the enduro stuff. I was overthinking it. Which is absolutely shocking if you know me well enough. Still managed to crew up a couple basics, but it's coming together. Ended up with some really gross looking heat rash and pretty sure I overheated myself a bit. Conditions were pretty decent in Freetown if anyone wants a trail report. A little wet/greasy in some spots still, but not totally swamped out.

    There's another enduro in Wrentham next weekend. Think I'm gonna be busy that day, but it's the back-up plan. Signed up for the NH Classic. And I think there's still Stimilon spots available.

    The wrentham enduro was super fun last year. Just a little greasy is about as good as Freetown gets. I wish I could have raced both this year.

    Oh, no shit. That was the one in the gravel lot right? If so, I was near the back of the pack on one of the few yamaha's. I was the clueless guy who asked if/when I should leave the check, then looked over my shoulder at the approaching rider and said "ehhhh I'll leave now, I want to be in front of this guy". Pretty sure it was someone I'd just passed. No sense in doing it twice. I hadn't quite processed how the Known checks can differ from the Secret ones until after the race.

    Thanks for standing around all day

    I feel like the conditions there are a shake of the magic 8 ball. It could rain for days, and you'd figure the trails would be a swamp. But delightful surprise that they're kinda normal. Rained heavily once two weeks ago? It's somehow become the bayou.

    Re: Let's get dirty...check here for rides.

    NETRA's got an enduro going on in Maine Sunday, and they're saying no Bike Reg required if any of you non-plated guys want to try it.

    Just did the Mohawk Harescramble and that was even better than I was expecting. Next weekend's another scramble in RI that I'm planning on going to as well.

    I'm still planning on the RI HS. Have plans tomorrow, so no back-to-back for me.

    The enduro was great. Not the most mileage, but it was all pretty good trail and not a ton of connector road. I had a way better time than last year's mudfest

    If you want attention at a MX track, show up with slicks. I don't think the winners of an AMA Supermoto event get the number of questions I do when I go to MX207 on the sumo.

    Re: Let's get dirty...check here for rides.

    I'm probably going to crow hill tomorrow and definitely going to WVRC Sunday for the family fun day (knobbies allowed on big bikes). Haven't been to an mx course before so I'm a bit nervous about crow hill.

    we were just up at Crow Hill last night with the little ones ...

    you're going to have a blast, it's been super groomed the last two times i've been up, seems they've been adding more loam + features. i haven't been up with my bike in a few seasons but it's always a good time. they will split skill levels when it's busy so stick your lines and you should be fine.

    Re: Let's get dirty...check here for rides.

    For some reason I thought WVRC only allowed smaller-than-fullsize bikes. Has that changed, or is this a special event? There's also a JDay in western MA on Sunday.

    I'm planning on going to the hare scramble in eastern CT sunday. https://www.netra.org/event/2019-ind...stance_id=1332

    It was great if you like NE-style trails Not much for flow - it was a fairly chunky trail with some kinda awkward lines. The heat killed me. I usually feel tired after, but this was something extra special. I dropped the bike quite a few times, all in stupid ways.

    The preview vid left me thinking it'd be mudpits and water crossings but there really wasn't much of that. Or I guess it was there - it just wasn't as bad as I was fearing. The course reminded me of freetown's long loop.

    According to Facebook it's a special event, apparently a "family fun day" where they allow knobbies on big bikes.

    that's a beautiful spot out in Cheshire for the JDay, did a SE there a few years back. i did awful but courses were fun, i assume the GP uses most of the same trail.

    does NETRA use that same location? just noticed the Mohawk HS was in Cheshire as well.

    I don't know why, but I want to say it's not the same. Maybe I read somewhere that it was new trail? The Mohawk HS course was beautiful though.

    Yep and a couple other guys. We did the NE24 and I think that's caused a theme for the summer.

    At one point someone joked that we could all try solo'ing the NE24 next year and I think that might accidentally have become a real idea.

    I kept debating jday vs netra for this weekend, and settled on jday. Figured we'd head down tomorrow afternoon and poke around greylock for a little then just camp there. Both areas look nice for woods, so it was a tough call.

    Planning to do the ammonusuc river turkey run on Sept 7 (just doing sat), and hopefully the westfield HS later in the month.
