So Devin, Forrest, Ben and I had planned to team up and race the 8hr hare scramble down in Sparta, Ga. The weather didn’t look too good, so Ben backed out as we packed up (don’t think too harsh of him…). Since Durhamtown Plantation OHV Park was close by the race venue, we planned to hit it on Saturday. We got there too late to ride, but with the potential mud fest for the race and the prospect of riding the vast Durhamtown Plantation we decided to stay and just ride there on Sunday instead of racing.
It ended up being a good choice. The trails were muddy and slick. I can only imagine how impossible the race track would have gotten. DP is a really nice venue. They have 6 MX tracks and miles of singletrack and ATV doubletrack. The singletrack is TIGHT and I mean TIGHT. I had a few tree close encounters and busted up my plastic pretty good. However the best part of the weekend was getting a change to ride a good beginner friendly MX track. I rode a MX track years ago but never got comfortable on my old 125. The movie is anything but awesome. Considering I have only spent about an hour on a track ever, I am pretty impressed with myself. If nothing else, I had a blast.
