Trikefest Moto Cross will be held on Friday, June 24, 2016 at Haspin Acres in Laurel, IN.
Riders meeting at NOON, with racing to follow shortly.
The track will be open to practice all morning and hopefully Thursday, as well.
Provided it is still there, we will be using the same small TT-style track as in 2015.

Classes have been added. There are now 13 classes from which to choose.

This lineup is not a race order - merely a listing of all classes available for entry. We will make every attempt to ensure that you do not have to run back to back if you enter more than one class.

There is no entry fee. SIGN-UPS WILL CLOSE Thursday evening (June 23). Make sure you find me or ATC-Tim to sign up prior to that. Advanced on-line sign up may be done in this thread.

Rule change: Each class will only run once. This not only encourages running multiple classes, but should also help move the program more quickly.

The 2-stroke classes listed are based more on rider ability than the machines. The intention is to place you on the track with other riders of similar skill level, for competitive and fun racing. If you have a question as to what class you belong in, please don't be afraid to ask.

As always, we will need volunteers to flag on jumps and corners. Please help out by flagging a few races if you can. Nobody wants to be out there all day, so the more people, the better.

Number of laps will be discussed and determined at the riders meeting. Weather and the length of the track will be two of the determining factors.

Unlimited Open Expert - No limitations on displacement or mods. Run what you brung. Expert riders with extensive MX experience ONLY!

2-Stroke Expert (A class) - Expert only class for vintage trikes. Any modifications must be 1980's period correct. No inverts, no 450 conversions.

2-Stroke Advanced (B class) Generally 250cc two-stroke riders with MX racing experience.

2-stroke Novice (C class) Mostly 250cc two-stroke riders with little or no MX racing experience.

(^^^ if you won C class last year, move up to B. If you won B class, move up to A)

350X class - Highly competitive and a blast to watch. Big bores and worked motors are permitted.

Mid Size Sport 200X class. Big bores and worked motors are permitted.

Mid Size Utility - 250cc and under 4 stroke, or 175cc 2 stroke with front and rear suspension such as 250ES, 250SX, YTM225, etc

Hard Tails (semi-suspended) Front suspension only, such as 200S, 200M, YTM200, YT175, etc.

Unsuspended Up to such as ATC70, 90, 110, YT60, YT125, ALT125, etc. Pitbike motors are permitted, suspension is NOT. Any common Lifan, Chinese, or other clutch pitbike motor (125, 140, 150cc or bigger is allowed).

Ladies Trike - Ladies of all ages on any size 3-wheeler.

Kids Trike Kids up to 13 years old and 125cc.

Geriatric class Age 40 and over on any size three-wheeler.

Conversion class - Dirtbike conversions, quad conversions, custom built 3-wheelers are all permitted. This is a brand new class for 2016.

Post any questions you have about classes in this thread.

2 NEW RULES for 2016:
1. Protective gear: Full face helmets are required for MX. No sneakers or gym shoes!
2. Number plates are required. Does not need to be fancy, but paper plates are no longer permitted. They rarely last the entire moto.

Protective eyewear, long sleeves, long pants, chest protector, riding boots, gloves, and tether kill switch are not yet required but are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


ONLINE SIGN UP BEGINS IS NOW CLOSED!!

Is there going to be a hard tail challenge bonus again this year? I think I could throw some swag to make it interesting.

Which class is least likely to have others flying over my head as I roll cautiously through the doubles: 2 stroke novice, or geriatric?

Can the numbers be just on the rear (hanging off the bumper), or do they have to be on the front as well?

Sign up for Geriatric, El. You can change your mind after you ride the track.

Excellent question. Both would be preferred, but the really important thing is to make sure the scorer knows who you are as you exit the track. Trophies only go to top 3, so if you get 4th or lower, none of that matters anyway.

If it's the same track as last year you don't need to worry about any high flyers. It was more of a TT track than MX, which made for some exciting racing.

If ANY of you riders are in need of a number plate please PM ME with color choice + race number/lettering so I can tag with your info and drop by my camp on AlkyHill to p/u.
Detailing these out for TrikeFest2016 is one of my holiday week end projects (on right ~ done / on left yet to do).
I have been in contact with https://www.facebook.com/Blue-Line-Graphics-126896510698501/ (Bruce),,, orhttp://www.3wheelerworld.com/member.php/4019-blue27
He won't be able to attend TF2016 this year so have your number/letters or what ever planned out ahead of time to affix to 1/4 inch mesh. Perhaps time left to get some of his awesome lettering/number products B-4 TF2016 no matter what you want to put them on,,,,
Looking SO forward to seeing some most awesome world class racing (in my world anyway) !!!

Hey Hottibaby, it just occurred to me that you may be missing the boat on a very competitive ATV class. Have you ever considered a Utility Class race? Participants would have to have rear racks and each would need to secure an equally weighted hay bale to it and complete the race without losing the bale. Duct tape permitted.

So what about signing up for other events, like drags, hill climbing, wheelie contests and barrel racing, or are the rest impromptu? I prefer to sign up online rather than onsite. Drinking and signing may not be a good idea for some of us.

We have done utility competitions before. It has been many years. So many events... so little time!


So what about signing up for other events, like drags, hill climbing, wheelie contests and barrel racing, or are the rest impromptu? I prefer to sign up online rather than onsite. Drinking and signing may not be a good idea for some of us.

As soon as MX ends, drag race sign-up begins. This is done in person with Billy and Xowner. Since those brackets need to be very structured and with tech inspection, etc., that process is more formal (about as formal as things get at TF). Sign-ups generally stay open for about 2 hours, are mostly held in the snack bar area beside the office. If you miss drag sign-ups on Friday afternoon, you are SOL come Saturday.

When you crest the top of Devil's Backbone to the applause of adoring trike fans, you have entered the hill climb competition.

Barrel racing may happen 2 or 3 different nights. It doesn't get dark until 10pm at Haspin in June. The lights magically come on (beside the mud pit) and the crowd just filters in. Show up at the starting line on a trike to enter. There are no rules and no losers. Attendance at this event constitutes a win in my book!!

I have never raced any sanctioned MX. But I've been to a hand full of tracks on practice days with my quad (around 30 times over the years). I am hope to get in some practice on Thursday and one of you veterans can tell me what class I belong in. I see 2 stroke A says no inverts. What about B and C?

Well, this isn't sanctioned either, so your perfect record will remain intact.

Here's the line of reasoning on inverted forks:
No inverts in 2 stroke A because we are trying to keep that class very vintage, pure, and period correct.
If you are good enough to race A class, and if you are sporting modern inverted forks, you should be running Unlimited Open Expert.
While we haven't held true to this in the past, 2 stroke A is from here forward about expert racers on vintage machines only.

B & C classes are much more about rider ability than machine. C is for guys who have never been on a track.
Having never seen you ride, it is really hard to say, but based on your description you sound like a B class rider to me.
Please come find me on Wednesday or Thursday. I am looking forward to finally meeting you in person.

I would like to join the Unlimited Open Expert class but would probably be getting in over my head. For now sign me up for B class. If we can practice on Thursday and you guys think i can move up I will. I will definitely come find you. I've only met a few members here at Rampage a couple years back.

I have you signed up in 2-stroke Advanced (B). Believe me, it is a very fast race for riders with track experience. I am anxious to see how it turns out this year. Good luck.

On-line sign-up is now closed.
I should arrive at Haspin tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon.
You have until Thursday night to sign up.
I will try to have the book with me at all times.
My truck is a black Tacoma with an oversized black/red cargo trailer.
Should be up near the house or just down the hill by the pond.
You will more likely find me at devil's backbone, shoe tree, dragstrip, etc.
I spend very little time at camp.
