WHOA! This month’s National Challenge at Colorado Off Road Extreme was just that, EXTREME! We ended the weekend with 45 drivers who all got 16 runs in which is an amazing 720 runs, not including re-runs, for the weekend! Granted we did start earlier than usual, but 6 runs before 1 PM on Sunday is still amazing! And it's all thanks to every competitor for being where they needed to be on time. Let's keep that kind of motivation up for the rest of the season! Friday afternoon also saw a great turn out of competitors who turned out to help keep Saturday's schedule on time by getting through registration and tech the day before. And by doing so they also saw countless numbers of practice runs which was going so smooth and relaxing that it ended up being left open for an hour extra. Saturday also saw a great turn out of folks who mounted up their high beam auxiliary lights and gotten in tons of none timed runs. Then as the evening got dark and things claimed down, the camping chairs came out for a good evening of watching a movie on the side of the bus under the stars.
Coming up next we will be headed back to CORE on July 7th for more fun in the sun. And if the temperatures will be anything like they have been then bring lots of water to help you keep hydrated and focused on the task at hand, catching Tommy. Also don't forget all of those things our Mothers have been telling us for years, sunscreen, sunglasses and hats. As usual, CORE will have their great food menu available on site to fill our stomachs appetites.
And lastly, coming up at the end of July will be the return of the PPIR Gravel/Tarmac special. And while the course design is Top Secret, believe me you will not want to miss out on it. So get the word out and bring lots of fiends to come play for we will need as many hands on course in order to cover what will be a very long and exciting course.
