Chris and Eyvand will be heading to Arizona Cycle Park for Round 1 of the AMA West Coast Hare Scramble Series on Sunday January 2, 2011.
Both riders will be competing in the 40+ B Class this year and anticipate some very fast competition. The B Class is a step up for both riders who advanced after the 2010 season.
A race report will follow upon their return.
Happy New Year!

It looks like some changes in the AMA National West Coast Hare Scramble Series for 2011. The AMA has only just announced the first race of the series which will be in Arizona on January 2. There has been concern from many Northern California riders about the AZ course and lack of information. On top of it all planning the race whith not much notice on a Holiday Weekend might make for a low turn out. The other issues are what type of terrain will be riden beside the MX track? Further, the poster indicates that there will be a Saturday MX practice which is usually not allowed in AMA and offers an unfair advantage for those who are able to make it there for the practice sessions.
How do you feel about the 2011 seires? Is anyone from this area going to be racing the AMA seires?
The District 36 announced the races for January and February, but I have not seen the entire hare scramble series. How many people are going to be racing this series?
Let us know your plans so we can begin to prepare for the upcoming race season.

Chris Ow won #1 Plate in the 2010 AMA National West Coast Hare Scramble Series in the 40+C Class. He was followed closely by Eyvand Fortney who earned the #2 Plate in the series.
Chris suffered a fall in 2009 breaking 7 ribs, collar bone and punctured lung. After the experience he felt he better race a series while he could still ride.
At the first race of the series Chris and Jon met Eyvand Fortney. They learned that Eyvand was racing the series in honor of his late father-in-law Mike who got him into dirt bikes. Mike had told him for the past few years to race a series. After his passing from cancer Eyvand decided to listen to Mike's advice and raced the series in his memory. Congratulations to Eyvand a fierce competitor and honrable man!
