    Idea! OT... Mt Bikers Annual trip to AMA Unadilla Motocross National 8/18/12

    Every year a few of us mt biker/moto guys get together...

    ...a travel to the Unadilla National round of the AMA Motocross series.

    Unadilla® Motorsports | Home of Horsepower | New Berlin, NY | Home

    Anyone interested in joining us, tag along, about a 2.5 hour drive from the Wyoming Valley up into New York state. Directions are as follows: Rt 81 to Rt 88 to Rt 8 to New Berlin, NY. You will see the best the nation has to offer as far as Motocross competition. I think the gate fee is around 40 dollars, but you can save if you order online early. This is a Saturday event.

    my little car has nightmares of trying to get out of the large field with all the big trucks trying to escape any way they could (ditches/rocks/vehicles getting stuck & spinning out on the hill). got stuck in a line of trucks (in between lots of parked cars and nowhere to turn around) and had to drive over the fence and little ditch to get out very traumatic day for my car but the racing was awesome.

    maybe next year if the injury list is smaller (and b can get off work). hope you have a great time.

    disclaimer - i have nothing against the trucks; i wish i also had one at that time.

    I hear you about the injury list, my man R.V. wont be there, very dissapointing.
    I will get to see Blake Baggett in the 250's, he has really been impressive this year, his come from behind wins are incredible.

    Redhead,

    Last year DR6 disappeared from our party, we saw him with a garbage bag going around the track collecting aluminum cans saying he was "Saving the Dilla"

    After the race we got back to the pits and this is what we saw, and on the way home he kept saying "I hate little silver cars with hood scoops"

    If you have a small pocket radio, you can listen to the race on 90.5 FM, really makes the race exciting when you can hear what is going on in the race at all times.

    yea i would like to see blake too; he’s had some incredible motos (though i’m still pulling for my ktm guys to get some wins) the 250s usually always make for a good race. i was at budds creek for the mxdn and got to see rv win on the 250 against the 450s - that was awesome.

    glad my car doesn’t have a hood scoop; maybe dr6 was trying to get enough cans to recycle and pay for his entry fee. it really irks me how people just throw their trash all around - the best is following cars on the road with all sorts of “save this/end this/stop this” type of stickers on their car and then they throw their trash out the window

    now on to watching some nice video thanks to dr6

    Motoman,

    Speaking of Braaap

    Alex, will have the Legends and Heros tour there again. It was great to see Hannah's original Boyesen link bike there last year that won the Dilla years ago...

    ...again speaking of Braaap, Sleepy Hollow is hosting the Two Stroke Challenge September 22/23 at the Holllow, all 2 strokes all weekend, Jere Swarr will be at Dilla promoting it!... Brraappp

    Sleepy Hollow MX Park - Fredericksburg, PA

    I had a blast with you a few years back at the Hollow for the AHRMA NE event I'm prepping up my 74 Elsie for one more trip around da Hollow, just think that bike will be 40 years old in 2014 and still ripp'in around da Hollow. Two strokes just keep runn'in! You should fire up the IT465


    DR6,

    BB is the man can't wait to see him rip through the pack!

    Bagget reminds me of Mike Loracco, bad starts and at the halfway point when everyones getting tired he hits his stride finding another gear and going seconds a lap faster, amazing watching him overjumping landings he's going so fast and determined to catch the leaders, the one race he was posting times better than the 450's.
    It's funny though when he does get a good start he's getting passed untill he feels comfortable, and then it's hammer time!

    Good job!

    All had a great time...

    ...visited with so many friends...

    ...one being Doug Henry, famous for many championship moments now promoting alternative riding. Spent time with Nick Manzoros and Geoff Arron 10 time national trials champ at the ERE show where Geoff stunned us with his super riding skills on his Gas Gas. Alex, Steve, Ed and Barry Higgins at Legends & Heros stuffed with so many cool vintage bikes and bench racing stories, and lets not forget great Moto racing on the perfect Unadilla track!

    Ryan Dungy crowned national champ, a first for for KTM in the 450 class. J. Stewart crashes hard right in front of us and I know DR6 got the footage as he always does with his DirtRider productions. Baggett, Tomac, Muskin, and Barcia battled in the 250s, we all got our mugs on NBC Sports live TV, walked around the track twice getting lots of great pics, and dined on race food making for a great day at the Dilla.

    Here's the link:
    Lucas Oil Pro Motocross - Action Sports Events | Alli Sports Action Sports

    Thanks Joe and the guys for the annual super weekend...
    ...lots of pics will be flowing in...
