    spookytooth had 2 death races. they were kinda a rally everyone road up about 20 miles then the race was around about a 20 mile loop then back to everyone who wasnt racing then everyone road back. i got second in the second race because i went down the wrong road. i could of won if i knew where i was. it was pretty fun tho about 40 people showed up for the second one and 60 to 70 for the first but i didnt have my bike then. they filmed the whole race but i never saw any of the footage.

    :idea: Tie it all in to the last three days of the 2007 hurricane patrol

    Drag racing-1/2 mile
    Short Distance-10 miles
    Medium Distance-35 miles
    Marathon-100/150 miles which includes 2 pit stops

    Digital photograph time/stamps can be used as "proof"

    Somehow we have to get handicaps in this. For gambling purposes only....

    Would you be allowed to pedal to get your bike to go faster do you think?

    If spookytooth does this again, I think I will have to go down to AZ

    the pedals wouldnt engage because the wheel is moving fast. you can peddle to get a better launch and gain speed tho. spookytooth moved from tucson to bisbee so they dont host any races or rallys anymore anyone who lived here could find enough people riding around and tell them about an upcoming race/ rally.

    I know that this is an old thread but........

    Hey Tom
    No need to drive all the way to Tucson and back as I have already
    put on one race at Willow Springs in CA and the next race is on Oct 22nd
    in Apple Valley, CA.
    Yes, you can pedal your bike to go faster and having functional pedals is
    just one of the few rules.
    Would love to have you at the next race right here in California.
