Dirt Quake USA News
Here's how it works.
If you want to race you choose one of the following four classes:
Inappropriate Road Bike
Street Tracker/Street Scrambler
Lady (female riders on any of the bikes above)
Send in a photo of the bike you want to race and the class you choose to be in. The DQ USA Committee then decide if it's inappropriate enough. If your bike is accepted then - when entries open, you have to get your payment in to guarantee your place. Race entry is $50. Racer goody bag included. Gate entry included.
Note: having your bike approved doesn't mean you're in, you must pay (by paypal) when the entries open on 1 April. Entries Close 17 May. No entries on the day, sorry.
Dirt Quake is for ROAD bikes. It's for people to dip a toe into racing who might never have tried it. There are plenty of races for real races bikes.
$10 on the gate, $10 for camping. Live music, chopper flat track, minimal risk of injury, good times.
Saturday is elite flat track racing (the good guys on great race bikes).
Sunday is Dirt Quake (misguided fools on inappropriate road bikes)
CASTLE ROCK, WA
31 MAY - 1 JUNE
There is more info on the Dirt Quake USA page.
This sounds like a lot of rules, but it allows the day to be a lot of fun with less hassle.
