As far as i know these events are piggybacking off existing downhill events…? Is that correct?
Like @sofu said. Piggybacking on DH. The DH community has it all figured out. Taking a look at Maryhill, Wa for April 27, 28. 2.2 mile

Thank you all and I can’t wait to see your shining faces on race day!
No wrenching ok what about battery swapping. I’ma need to swap once or twice
Bakersfield is my backyard!
I would hope he is specifically talking about The paying DH classes. Bring your tools, bring your battery swaps. If ya wanna add weight well…
Ok I miss read. Makes more sense now. I was like well I’m not going to put dumb bells on my board if I’m trying to go up a hill maybe stuff my pockets full of rocks on the way back down lol.
What’re the classes we can race and costs associated?
Can you add me to the list? Edit: not 100% on what board I’ll be riding
Details will be finalized. Stand-by. Got any ideas please share.
We might want to have top speed range classes. 30 - 35, 35 - 40, etc. Really depends on how much time they give us. Might just be another 20 on the starting line. I’m fine with that. It’s hella fun either way.
Yeah the mass start was fine, we need to remember we are guests at these events. Save the complicated and time consuming heats for later.
Please get better documentation, video and photo, for the people on other continents! Cameras positioned beside the track and a camera on a bike upfront additional to drone shots of the complete heat would be awesome.
@MoeStooge You know I’ll be there! Any idea what time the uphill race will be at? Just trying to figure out my driving schedule.
4wd hummie hub most likely
Wow. I certainly wouldn’t win lol It would be awesome to attend! But I don’t know if I could. Seasonal firefighter hiring starts around that time.
But hey, I’ll RSVP on the chance that I WONT have to go to rehire training that week
At this point, 2wd 12S TB belt drive build.
Bakersfield Outlaw Roster.
I’m totally stoked on how quick the roster is filling up. I will bring a generator in case anybody wants to bring their charger and charge up there batteries. I will also bring a couple gopros and an old fisheye handycam to pass off between riders during practice runs. Also I just bought a radar speed kit to set up on the hill somewhere. Not sure how it’s gonna work yet. But I will probably need a volunteer to stand there and pull the trigger. Preferably across from one of the photographers. Also I will bring some rear foot stops if anybody wants to try them out before the race.
