A MESSAGE FROM THE DREAM RIDERS CREW:
Yes, bad weather is here but we are racers. NO CANCELLING HAPPENING. I believe everyone will enjoy the track, and the track should hold up fine. Slippery, yes! We already have secondary routes for the hills if they become impassable, and even a secondary to a new downhill if it's too slick! We put plenty of alternative and pass lines into this track.
Parking will be slippery and there is one soft spot near the start, but beyond that no one should be buried anywhere, on or off the track!
Bring warm clothes and some wet gear, we'll see you all this weekend! Braaap!!
-Dream Riders Crew
A little series preview of the Kenda New York X-Country State Championship, an AMA Featured Series brought to you by Bobcat of the Twin Tiers......
For 2019, Kenda is our new Title Sponsor- featuring the great Kenda Tire Giveaway, brought to you by Budget Racing (same as last year- 6 sets of tires per event!)
They offer such a great variety of tires---bikes, quads, minis and peewees, and even utv models! Check them out online or at the Budget Racing rig this season!
Round 1 gates open Saturday at 10am and the Dream Riders crew has some great events lined up to please everyone in the family.
Registration sign up will be open from 12-6pm on Saturday and again on Sunday at 6:30am.
On Saturday afternoon/evening consider being a part of the Chinese Auction that benefits the NYOA Scholarship Fund (given to riders furthering their education after high school) or grabbing some food from 4-7pm to benefit the Trevor Cobb fundraiser---Trevor has been a huge part of the NYOA family for years racing the AA Bike line and was paralyzed in a riding accident in Ocotillo Wells, California in late February. The Chinese Auction will also be going on Sunday.
Also happening on Saturday & Sunday morning at Dream Riders---A bounce obstacle course and slide for kids AND ADULTS!
Ever wanted to watch Supercross at a race? Head to the white tent across from vendor row on Saturday night!
In other news, the former "Finale" race has a new name, date & location! Round 2--Finger Lakes X-Country--May 19th---Mills Rd, Montour Falls!
And, even more, Valley View (Round 5) has a new date and location too!
There has been quite some buzz and excitement around these rounds and their new locations!
Also back on the schedule for the 2019 season---GNCC's!! We are SO pumped to be co-sanctioning the Tomahawk (Round 4) and Black Sky (Round 13) events with the GNCC crew and trust our riders are too. Last year many NYOA members were seen as spectators or riders at the Tomahawk and were sadly disappointed when Black Sky had to cancel due to weather. As many of our riders support and race the national series, it will be an added benefit for them to get State Championship points as well, in its inaugural season.
As a reminder, there are NO 2-day events scheduled.
*The gate fee for ages over 10 is $15 (under 10 free!).
*Senior Citizens 65 & over is $10 (Sunday only)----new for 2019!
Race entry fees:
Looking SO forward to seeing all of you this weekend! Good luck to all this season!
ATTENTION parents of ALL youth riders:
It is an official NYOA rule that all youth riders (under 18 years old) need to have a birth certificate on file. Please look at the attached list of riders. If your son/daughter IS ON THIS LIST, please bring a photocopy of their birth certificate for our files so your child can remain eligible to compete in all NYOA events.
*Bobcat of the Twin Tiers is excited to announce that we will be continuing our partnership with the New York Off-road Association for the 2019 season of the Kenda New York X-Country State Championship, an AMA Featured Series.*
Bobcat of the Twin Tiers will again be providing a Bobcat T595 compact track loader to assist in track and event preparation at each race in 2019. Again in 2019, NYOA members will receive a special promotion/discount of a $500 credit toward an attachment with the purchase of a new Bobcat product (skid steer, track loader, or mini excavator). We will also offer NYOA members a 20% discount off daily, weekly, or monthly rental of Bobcat Equipment or Lift Trucks (Toyota, Crown).
We will also be announcing current offers and incentives Bobcat has in place throughout the season at NYOA events.
Bobcat of the Twin Tiers again thanks NYOA for the opportunity to partner with the series, and we wish all of the racers, promoters, and spectators a successful and safe 2019 racing season!
We understand that some people have purchased new machines and can no longer race the class they originally registered for.
Please understand that registrations are processed weekly; this means helmet stickers are printed, registration cards are printed and laminated, and then everything is either mailed in the SASE provided, or sorted and filed to be brought to the races.
Anyone wishing to change classes needs to mail in a new application with a $5 class change fee.
The deadline for mailed-in applications is fast approaching! All mailed-in applications must be postmarked by tax day, Monday, April 15th.
*Anything postmarked after April 15th WILL NOT be processed prior to the first race.*
