BLAST FROM THE PAST

Loretta_Lynns_2
Kevin Hines had a tough nut to crack racing in an era where Terry Cunningham, Scott Summers and Scott Plessinger were the working mans racer. Kevin broke out of the ‘spoiled rich kid’ mold with a huge win at Loretta Lynn’s in 1985. He dominated the 100-Miler in spite of breaking off his front fender early on in the race and went on to become one of our most benevolent racers who ended his career with a stunning resume.

image009

 Coming back for it’s third consecutive year, the fun and challenging KLIM Cow Tag Ride will be held June 24th in KLIM’s backyard test lab in the heart of Idaho’s backcountry. Come ride great trails with the team from KLIM, win amazing prizes and support Off-Road Trail Advocacy Groups by signing up to attend today!

“Protecting shared outdoor recreation on public land is really important to KLIM, the porpose of the Cowtag is to spread awareness on this issue and raise money for organizations that work hard to keep our riding areas open” said KLIM Marketing Director John Summers.

Register at https://www.KLIM.com/cow-tag-registration to guarantee a spot (limited to 350 entries). You’ll enjoy breakfast and dinner on the day of the ride, an event T-shirt and Maps and GPS tracks to the Cow Tag locations. When the ride is over, you’ll be eligible to win amazing prizes donated by the best companies in off-road. Proceeds from the event support Trail Advocacy Groups to keep trails open.

About the Ride

The goal of the ride is to collect Cow Tag numbers posted at various locations in the local riding area. The locations are shown on the provided trail map and GPS tracks only. Each rider will be responsible for reaching the locations and snapping a photo with the tag. Each Cow Tag is worth a different amount of tickets—the harder they are to get to, the more they’re worth! Riders will decide where to invest their earned tickets based on individual prize raffles at the evening’s dinner.

 

Location

Once again, Kelly Canyon Ski Resort will serve as basecamp for the ride. The local spot offers great access to some of our favorite local trails and is only a few miles away from KLIM’s Idaho headquarters.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

IMG_3210
My first ISDE was in Sweden. I had built a very trick DRZ400 for the event, with the help of Suzuki’s Charles Halcomb. This is at Parc Ferme at the end of day one, the bike was barely running, shooting ducks on decell and I’m trying to get the carburetor off, cleaned and reinstalled in 10 minutes.
IMG_3211
I made it to the final special test on day 5 before a rock bent the rear sprocket and I sucked the chain into the cases. I houred out a half a mile from the end of the day, which would have guaranteed a medal. Big bummer for the Wolfster.
IMG_3212
As my friends were finishing a brutal ISDE, Randy Hawkins (who also DNFed on a similar machine) helped me drag the bike out of the woods and stick it in our rent a car. I had to clean ‘er up and ship it back home.
