Most Open Riding days start with the Novice 1 & 2 groups combined, and the Expert 1 & 2 groups combined.
As more riders sign up, the Novice and Expert groups will be split in half as needed.

All 50cc bikes ride on the KTM Kids Track (a.k.a. the 50 track).  65cc, 85cc and small trail bikes can choose to ride either the Kids Track or the big track, but can’t go back and forth from the Kids Track to the pro track.  If you’re not sure, start on the Kids Track. If/when you’re ready to move up to the big track, come to registration and exchange your wristband. Mini quads also ride on the Kids Track.  Kids Track groups are typically as follows:

50 TRACK RIDER GROUPS
50ccMay be split into groups by size and/or speed as needed.
65cc 2-strokes, up to 110cc trail bikes
85cc 2-strokes, up to 150cc trail bikes
Miniquads

Equipment Requirements:  Helmet, goggles, long pants, long sleeves, over-the-ankle boots; gloves & chest protector recommended.  Quads must have a tether kill switch and nerf bars.

If you’re not at least 18 years old, your parent must be here to sign you up, and must stay while you’re riding.  If your parent can’t attend, you can bring a NOTARIZED consent form from your parent, assigning another adult as your temporary guardian for the day.  We can’t accept the form if it’s not notarized (due to insurance requirements).  

For more information, click for the Info, Rules page and find the sample consent form.
