RMVMC Season Finale Race Action Report!

Thunder Valley was a success with great racing action and many competing for final year points. Helped by great PR (the Denver Post, etc) and weather that held off all day we had 101 riders and over 150 class entries!  Although we had over 20 modern entries, the large majority were Classic, Vintage and GP classes.  It took all the volunteers could do to keep up with the action.

Chris L. lies over the Finish Line Jump




  
Track: The track held up well, some deep ruts in corners, but for the most part the track was tacky and great for vintage racing.  Dave Clabaugh and crew worked late Saturday and early Sunday on track prep paid off with a challenging track that was ride-able by even the Classic bikes.

Check out the great photos with our Members from Legends and Heroes!

Legends Event

Legends and Heroes 2014 
Really happy at the great turnout. Larry started off the weekend organizing a great Fan Fest at Sun Honda! Then on to Legends and Heroes at Thunder Valley where Scott and Marlin got us a great location. Take a look at the amount of traffic that came by. Many good stories exchanged and hopefully a few new members.



I drowned the bike 3 times, good fun
Steamboat 2014
Many RMVMC members showed up for an Epic and wet Steamboat! Check out the amazing virgin grass track. Craig Hager did the Start with his amazing rubber band machine and Bob Winter won two expert classes. Moe flooded out in the mud but was a great time!
