Ted Marriner replied to RACE NUMBERS yesterday

I know you will be using the same transponders we use in our offroad series for both the MX and the CC race. Our series' scorekeeper is doing it. Not sure about numbers but my bike has them already from our series. As for the CC race, yes, that is what they are calling the hare scramble. I'm sure they'll end up using the MX track and such to add mileage since Beasley had previously cut down most of the woods there. Also be sure to read the rules for the CC race. There are some weird ones...

RACE NUMBERS

I haven't competed since 2005. Back then, we were given numbers to display on our bikes. Will we be getting numbers again this time? Or just using transponders??? Also...I already registered for what was called the "cross country" (?) race...is that actually the Harescramble? Thanks. Sue McCarron

Hello, racers!

I want to inform everyone that there will be a prerequisite for the WPFG Motocross and Cross Country competitions at Budds Creek.
In order to compete, racers will have to be AMA members at the time of competition. It is a $49.00 fee, and you can either sign up or renew your membership with the AMA here: www.americanmotorcyclist.com/membership/…

It is a great organization to be a member of, and the member dues include AMA Roadside Assistance, American Motorcyclist Magazine, and...

Are we able to sign up for MX races at the track? My concern is registering for both the CC and MX, and not being able to do the MX for either technical or physical issues. (hopefully neither happen!).

Ted Marriner My understanding is MX practice Monday, MX Racing Tuesday, and the CC is Wednesday. I haven't decided on the MX yet as I'm really bad at it so I'm hoping they do sign-up at the track too. 1 month ago

Gday all,

As an International rider do we need a special license to race???

Also insurance for racing, are we covered through WPFG???

Thanks

Rich Merrell Tim, you do not need any special license or permit for Motocross as you are never on a public road. Your insurance question, you can refer to the Official Entry Book found under the Athletes tab on the home page. 1 month ago

ATHLETES - A new FAQ for your MOTOCROSS event has been posted to the social sports group. You can find the blue button link in the right hand column under Rules and Venue info or you can click here: fairfax2015.com/sports/…

I see now that we are holding the CC event at Budd's Creek MX. Will we be using part of the MX track like we used to when my series raced there? Wondering what the event schedule will be like. Can someone run both CC and MX without have scheduling problems?

Morganne Sterl Hi Ted,

The motocross and cross country will be held on separate days; motocross will be held on June 30th, and cross country will be the following day on July 1st. You are more than welcome to race both events!

I have a similar question as Joe Pittman. Is there multiple hour long races for the Quad Cross Country races or is there one single Cross Country race? If so, do you know which day it will be held? The schedule has Motocross scheduled for June 29th, 30th, and July 1st. I live a few hours away and am trying to set up my vacation schedule to attend the Cross Country Quad race. Thanks.

Morganne Sterl Mike and Joe,

The Cross Country races will be held on Wednesday, July 1st. The plan is to have a separate Cross Country race for the quads, and have all of the bikes run at a separate time as well.
