Mota 1st Event In Indiana

Recommended Posts

Zippy,

I'm really looking forward to this weekends event. Unfortunately I have not been on my bike much, but now is the time!

Sam's property is great. I always enjoy riding there, especially before mosquito season!

Sam,

Are you all set for checkers? I know some folks from that New Paris enduro gang will be there. We could put 'em to work if need be.

Update!

All minors must have BOTH parents or legal gaurdians signature before allowed on the grounds, whether spectating or riding.

I have spoken to the AMA officials via phone and this is there rule! Jan-1-2008.

You may obtain the waiver off of the AMA website and have signatures notarized If a parent is not present!

I was reading the link and do find it hard to believe that a spectator at an AMA event must have a letter from both parents.

Just think of the indoor supercross's that have 60,000 spectators with 50-60% of those being minors. Maybe arena events will be exempt.

Still outdoor motorcross has a huge spectator base and so does flat track and not to mention the slowely growing sport of trials.

Thanks for putting the word out. I think untill we understand this we should all pass the form onto friends that may want to come spectate in the future.

Looks like the AMA has had enough lawsuits to warrent this extreme measure. The only good I can see is it may give the private land owner more safety.

It will be hard to turn people away that took the time to come watch the event.

Each club should make sure they have plenty of copies at sign up however most of the time both parents do not show up at events.

Thanks for the update.

Scott,

I have nearly blown a gasket over this subject!

As of today, minors who are spectating only need one parent to sign the waiver. Minors that are competing need both parents' signatures on the waiver, as well as the AMA ASSUMPTION OF RISK ACKNOWLEDGEMENT form filled out and signed!

Yesterday (4/2/08), I was told BOTH parents' signatures were needed because the event is OPEN COURSE, meaning spectators are walking on the loop where riders are competing. (MOTOCROSS is closed course racing, which is why this does not apply to motocross).

So as of 4/3/08, spectators under the age of 18 just need one parent's signature on the waiver.

Thanks from the whole organization for going through this Sam. We appreciate the fact that you are allowing us to ride on your land and setup the trials for us. If you need any help or if your going to blow another gasket give me or any of us a call and we will try and help as much as possible. Saturday night we will chill by the fire enjoy a brew :D and remember that damn section that nagged us all day. See you saturday morning bright and early.

Looks like I get to be the first here to say, Great Job Sam! :rolleyes:

I don't think I've ever seen that many riders at a local event, I heard 105 on Saturday :o

Great start to the season,

Thanks Sam :)

Had a Blast! :rolleyes:

Great turnout for the event. Biggest we've ever had I would say

Some may say Saturday was a bit tough on ADV and EXP (OK it was tough) BUT do remember that even I at the bottom of the ADV class tried every obstacle. And went away with a smile. :)

HEY SAM,

Great Job for a first time hosting an event, and BEAUTIFUL property.

Whollyyyyyyy cow.... <<<edited to be pc.

Against all odds super SAM came through with a great event!!!!

MOTA trials are usually 40-50 riders however through the power of advertising 105 showed up the first day and 100 showed up the second.

Hats off, gloves off, helmets off, to the whole (mind you brand new crew) michigana trials club. Bow down to the gods of trials!!!

There were so many who rode they ran out of score cards on day one.

There were so many spectators they ran out of wrist bands.

Scoreing got a little tedious as the sun was going down but we made due.

I dont think we expected all of trials incorporated to show up but it was good riding with the crew from down south.

Not only did super SAM have a cold and his cat ran away (but then came back) and he managed to hold a complete trials on single handedly.

You could not wish for a nicer piece of property and a greater selection of sections.

From those stupid rolly polly rocks to some of the biggest tires to huge barrels (both metal and plastic) to gaps to hill climbs with rocks to drop offs to mud to dry to logs..... very very very cool.

I will agree with Zippy that the day one sections were extremely hard however i had so many lines to choose from in Expert i couldn't decide on just one so i tried them all. I was so tired on day one that my arm cramped up shifting the car on the way to the hotel.

Day 2 was as it should be a little easier but enough to still get points.

Absolutely hands down some of the most fun i have had in a long long time.....

We got some videos for youtube from the pits. I will work on that tonight. Weather is in the 60s and my camp fire in the back yard is calling me but i will resist the temptation to get-er done!

I hope that i can return the favor in Flint.... I have work to do now.... I am thinking splatter..... hmmmm maybe some cement..... Ut oh now Biffs brain is running wild...

Great event Sam! Perfect weather and the best turn out we have seen at a MOTA event in 25 years! Thanks for all of the hard work you put into it.

Sections were tough on Sat but everything was safe. For myself I just wasn't in good enough shape to be able to work my controls for 4 loops. I think others had the same problem.

It was fun to have to ride the bigger stuff. Now that down hill on section 6 (Sun) well that's another story..Thank's for leaving the EXP line open on that one!

Thanks Again and great job!!

Finally some videos. I didnt get much of the actual event itself but after the event joe kutchey went out and played around.

Super Sam and his Lovely wife Laura helping with sign up.

And the sign up tent slash bomb shelter.

Then perusing the pits we found my rig and zippy around. My gasgas of course stole the show.

Heres Zippy living the dream.

Moving on down to the warm up people.

We had tons of people from Trials Incorporated show up. Here is Jon warming up. Show off....

Lets see some sections.

Section 1 on day 1 was a nice hill climb. It has some rolley polley little rocks but as soon as you got on the hill side tons of traction.

Section 6 on the second day was very tricky and very cool. The intermediate line had a pretty sweet hill climb. Here is an example of the expert line being riden.

Next to that he had a tons of tires and this silly rock that plauged us all day. Of course Joe clears it on the first try.

This section also had a bunch of sewer tubes or something along those lines. Very tricky.

Next to that section there were some huge oil drums. One of which i decided to break my upper tripple tree on. Oh well WGASA that is trials...

Not only did we have Steel drums to ride on but plastic as well... very diverse.

Then we had tons of rocks in section 10.

Thanks again Sam for a great trials.

Ok i think we filled up this post. Time to start another one. I suggest bent fenders 3rd mota event.
