Another riding opportunity this weekend

Anyone headed to FVOR tomorrow? I was thinking about either heading down there or staying closer to home.

Unfortunately I'm out for today going to go enjoy some of the other "toys" today. I'll probably just head to Rocky Glen tomorrow for a bit.

rode fvor Saturday, place was packed, not near as many as last year rider app day but a full lot , it got dusty and they wouldn't water in the afternoon after a too little too late watering mid day, if you don't water when its packed when do you use the watering equipment? went to Joliet sunday and it was getting dry when a 2pm quick shower hit, let it soak in for 20 min while everybody packed up and went home, had a perfect track to ourselves for an hour till it started raining again about 330

RG is getting much nicer. Sticky and I were there two weeks ago. It's a long way from great - but they are definitely putting the work in.

Should be there most Sunday mornings this summer.

Is anyone riding Sunday? I am waiting to see how much rain we get Saturday. If I go, it will be Joliet or FVOR.

Anyone know if the Joliet area got hit with rain today? Fox Valley was closed and posted that they will be open Sunday but that it is very wet.

Thanks
Brian

It rained all day here yesterday here in Joliet.

Call before you haul. That track is in a low, wet area.

rode joliet last night, track has been changed, all the jumps are the same except for the small 6 pack which is now twice the size it was, but they tore up and changed many of the turns and connections , I you are used to turning right after a jump you now might turn left,, added a ton of sand in 3-4 sections, made 1 long sweeping sand turn that developed a 2 foot deep rut the whole way around, and added lots of mulch too , its a different track than you are used to, so much so that I spent half the night on the SX track first time this year for me, and its fun and in good shape, probably easier than the MX track is now, the work on the mx track is new and may not be finished or it may settle in a bit , watch it on your first lap!
