This Sunday is the harescramble race at Pine Lake in Ashtabula, Ohio. A friend of mine is racing in it, and trying to get me to race too. I've never raced before, but he's confident that I would do good. I just don't know what class I would race in with my 700XX. Its a CRA race, so I guess there is 4 Stroke, Open, and Woodsman. He told me to stay away from woodsman, so I'm not sure which class to enter. I will also need a tether switch in order to race. I will probably need a good set of boots, chest protector, and some pants more comfortable than my usual riding jeans. The track is 1 hour plus 1 lap, on i think a 6 mile track. I've been to the track to watch many times, and my dad raced his LT-250R in it when I was a baby, and my brother raced his RM-125 in it about 9 years ago, so I guess it's my turn. My conditioning isn't the greatest, but I'm in all around good shape, and I expect to be pretty tired, probably after the first lap, lol. From all of the guys that race their 700XX's in harescrambles and cross crountry, what else can I expect from these races?
