    Looks like fun. Hopefully it dries up a bit more though.
    I went to burnt river in August (I think, it was the day before the Soggy Boot ride), and the endurocross track was extremely overgrown. Still a lot of fun, but some spots were hard to see through the weeds. It looked like they were changing some stuff up and since it's on the OO schedule this year I'm really looking forward to going back.

    Sometimes I wonder how MX can be fun because it's just lap after lap after lap. But it is the most fun I've had a dirt bike. Pushing yourself and the challenge of hitting everything perfectly make it a ton of fun. I love going to the MX tracks that have single track too so that you can change it up a bit.

    I'll stick with enduro and xc. And you're welcome to come by a race and see how your trials bike stacks up if you like.
    Different clubs may do it differently, but here's how Steel City Riders does it. You can race in three classes. Each class gets two motos at 10 mins plus a lap each. So it's a tiny bit more than your "couple 20min motos", lol. But yes, it is a lot of sitting and waiting.

    For me it's the close quarter racing of MX that I find more enjoyable than enduro and XC. But I still find all racing fun.

    I race with Robp and I agree with what he said. I usually cap it at 2 classes, 3 is a lot for me. It's true the days are long but honestly with the intensity of moto I don't desire a lot more riding time on race days. Mind you I can burn laps all day for fun. I'm usually more tired and sore after a day of mx races then our club hare scrambles.

    Always good people at the track to bench race and spectate with between motos so that helps to pass the time.

    I enjoy ripping through the trees but it's really hard to get away from the competitiveness and challenge of banging bars racing mx. It never seems to get old either as the better you get the more fun it seems to be.

    I don't even like riding the same section of singletrack twice in the same day. Hahaha

    I get so lost in the Ganny most days that it makes riding the same section impossible

    The good thing is that motogp first practice is in 2 weeks and after that we are almost in dirt bike season again...
