All the workers were super helpful (helping me get my bike over that stupid rock at check 3....) and friendly. Im really bummed to be missing the band and BBQ thats going on RIGHT NOW... Cool shirts too....Right on RUTS!! Great job yet again!!
Thank you again to the gentleman from RUTS that was passing out cold water to all of us at the finish.
Hats off to RUTS, even in the gnarliest rocky washes. the quads fit through, barely. Hard to believe, but it seemed someone even built little "rock ramps" on the approach to some of the bigger boulders we had to go over with one side or the other, not kidding. RUTS, we notice things like this . Great Band, and as usual RUTS "after race event" was awesome. THANKS, to all you RUTSTERS !
BEST WEEKEND OF RACING THIS YEAR! Weather was perfect, both race courses were fun, free food, prizes, brownies, what more could you asked for. This is what a District race is all about! Thanks RUTS, you guys put a lot of work end to this weekend and it showed.
The whole weekend was fantastic. Both courses were a blast; I liked the A course the best today. It was more technical than I was expecting. What a great weekend; I love me the Euro's.
Quality event by the RUTS, as usual.
Both days were beautiful . The total package RUTS puts together is awsume.
I had a FANTASTIC time this weekend! RUTS was my very first D37 race last year. I've tried to do all the races since then to now and I can honestly say that RUTS puts on one of the most fun, unique and awesome weekends of the year! Got to meet a lot of people this weekend too.
Thank you to Julie for the tray of brownies!! I didn't get the pit bike but I did win A LOT of very cool stuff. The raffle and live band is such an incredible touch to top off the weekend. This has been the highlight of my year so far, not just racing, but life in general! I had a good racing weekend too, got 1st in class both days. Liked course B a lot more than A. Had great starts both days. Today I nearly holeshot the entire novice line on my 125. Damn 450's just have more top end, especially on an uphill sandy start. Thanks again RUTS, you guys put on a great weekend. See you all next year!
Favorite RUTS course's to date! Vet race sat. felt really akward for some reason trying to get on my bike from the rear wheel straddle position. It was like slow motion getting on, got to the end of the bomb and realized my goggles were around my mouth guard on my helmet . luckily had clean air , slowed enough to put em on then fell into 5th position, had my pucker moment of the weekend on the first road crossing just after the start. Chased Ken Reber for a couple miles put a pass on when he took a corner wide, then caught another Vet hwt V33?, chased him for a bit then we both lost the ribbon on a right turn out of a wash, i found the course first and was able to take the position. 1st and 2nd overall were checking out, i was able to hold 3rd overall though . Loved course A minus the rough straight away to the finish.
Sunday I practiced my bike mount technique , and got a better start, fell in right behind Shultz and another Hwt Vet and the end of the bomb just tried to keep pace, then Dodson passed and a few miles later Liebelt passed. Held 5th overall for a lap then Hasting put the pass on me and so I just tried to stay on his rear wheel but dust on B course was insane and i started riding over my head just to keep pace. I backed off and held onto 6th overall Vet. The silt bed on B course was crazy, 5th gear pinned sitting on the rear fender floatin accross it was a blast. Loved every bit of B.

Thanks for bringing the Good News....Food good, Band Good, Message Good, God Is Good, all the time....
The BBQ and band were great. I loved the video this year; I was in it as was my husband Mark and son James!!! Awesome!!!
My hubby & I just started racing during the last half of 2010. The RUTS race was by far the best weeekend we've had to date. I loved course B on Saturday and thoroughly got my butt kicked on Sunday on course A. But dagnabit, I made it up RUTS hill - twice!! All the extras (band, raffle, kids race, bbq, welcome committee, brownies, slideshow) really made the weekend enjoyable and memorable!!
Great weekend with family and friends!
Thanks RUTS for laying out two great courses...loved B on saturday @ 1200
watched a four ace execute a knarly endo and jump right up with his thumb in the air..unbelievable!.......always alot of good dudes on the 40+ line
Sunday was a blast! looking at the RUTS map I was expecting a whooped out fast course..great layout RUTS with a bit of everything.
My front end washed out and I landed pretty hard on a "big fluffy rock" before check 3 I think.. it was just hold on to the bars and finish from there on ...
Going over RUTS hill was alot of fun! never took the alternate but probably would have done a little better with the log jam on the hill my first time through.
Great guys on the hill trying to keep everyone flowing.
loved hearing all the cheering on the hill!
D37 peeps are pretty cool...Thanks for the Burger,Band and Brownies!All the course workers were awesome.Cant wait till next year! Kudos to all the hardworking RUTS and we're looking forward to next year's event!!
This was my first RUTS Meltdown and I had a great time, thanks for the bbq and fun events Saturday night.
