The group ride this year was a fun time for everyone and for the first time it didn't rain most of the weekend. The Ride was held May 14th - May 16th at the Rausch Creek MX Park in Tremont, PA.

This years ride was held in conjunction with the GNCC race at Rausch Creek, which worked out really well, and I plan on having a group ride every year during the GNCC weekend at Rausch Creek in the future. Several of the members spent most of Saturday at the race and rode on Sunday while others went home Saturday night.

I didn't arrive at the MX park until late Saturday night, so I actually missed seeing some of the members that rode Friday and Saturday and left before I arrived. I couldn't ride because my hands had some nasty blisters from the GNCC race, so I spent Sunday taken pictures.

John Natalie jr. did some riding Saturday at the MX park before I arrived, but his bad luck this weekend continued when he YFZ quit running. He was forced to clean up early and head home.

All and all it was a fun weekend, but a few members find out the ground wasn't too forgiven. Ralph found out the hard way.

Admin

His quad didn't fair much better.

Admin

the cool thing about rausch creek is that if you don't feel like riding the MX track, you can just hit the trails like this guy and his boy did on his 1988 LT250F Quadrunner.

I tell you that quad was in almost new shape and he was the original owner. I also still have one, but it looks like junk compared to his.

Nah Me "Brent", Ralph, Paul and a few other guys that day really didnot know about this jump being messed up. I knew I could hit it easy 4th gear and make the landing with ease but somehow I clipped my rear tire on the landing of the jump. The intermediate track is also alot of fun with pretty decent sized jumps and most with easy landings for a 400ex or soo quad a 300ex or smaller models stock might have a problem there because some of the jumps would deffenatly make stock shocks bottom. Ralph Ill keep my eye out on the steering stem for you ill let you know if anything turns up. Rausch is a very safe track I just sugjest you look at ANY jump your sceptical about watch another rider and see how he properly does the ramp, I was cocky and just didn't even look at the thing and hit it without thinking. Hopefully next exriders ride me and eveyone else wont be as hurt. I guess it was just a bad weekend for really all of ous. Hope you heel up quick ralph didnot get a chance to talk to you but I saw you and the other guys near Harlens trailer.
