THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ....BEFORE YOU GO. PLEASE READ!!
You will need a Dot rated helmet, riding boots, gloves, goggles, and it is highly recommended to have a chest protector, knee guards/braces, hydration pack, and tool pack. Although there are sweepers during the race, carrying a few specific tools can be the difference between finishing and a DNF.
Know your bike and it's capabilities. Bring a gerri can with fuel if you think you will need a pit stop. At the riders meeting promoters will advise where fuel can be left or transported for remote pits. Hare-scramble are under 35km courses that you complete as many laps as possible in the time and Cross-countries are courses up to a 100km loop that you complete only once.
REGISTRATION & INSURANCE
Be aware that all bikes need to have valid registration and insurance. Promoters will apply for a headlight and tail light exemption from the registrar to be applied during the event. At all other times (before/after the race) bikes will require a headlight and taillight to be deemed legal and compliant with the OHV Traffic Safety Act. Neither AMSA nor Promoters will be policing this, it is the responsibility of the individual rider. If a rider chooses not to be compliant with the law, they could end up with fines.
Bikes should have a silencer that is less than 96dbs and has a spark arrestor. Event promoters will be conducting random noise test to ensure compliance.
Travel responibly on designated trails.
Respect the right of others including private property, recreational trail users, and campers.
Educate yourself by obtaining maps and regulations from public agencies.
Avoid sensitive areas such as meadows, lakeshores, wetlands, and streams, unless on designated routes equipped with bridges.
Do your part by leaving the area better than you found it, and join a local group of enthusiasts.
