SpookyTooth Death Race 2009: YOUR input is requested
Spooky Tooth Cycles is proud to announce tentative plans for the annual Death Race, with a twist...they want YOU to make the plans for this wicked jam!
To further show appreciation for all MB riders, the location of the event and possible after-party, will be chosen by you.
The date has been chosen, however: Sun April 19th.
Location should be in/around the Tucson area, lowest traffic routes with pavement throughout.
Keeping in mind, previous races have already been held at Gates Pass, Mt. Lemmon, and Saguaro Nat'l Park:

and 2008: http://motoredbikes.com/showthread.php?t=10493
If you can think of a good place to hang out and party (and brag!) afterwards, throw in those ideas, too.
Submit your "idears" (OCC) in this thread, and all input will be reviewed by Spooky Tooth Cycles. The winner of chosen location will receive an autographed thong, worn by Evel Knievel.

Name the spot and I'll be there. Location doesn't matter because I'm from Gilbert and it will be a long trip anyway."If you are the smartest guy in the room, then you're in the wrong room. - Unknown
me n azvinnie will be there (3rd year)
as usual, I will be rallying rather than racing
(vinnie raced the last 2 years and blew up doing it, engine turned 'bronze' 1st year- grenaded his rear wheel bearings last year)
I'll go first.
in my opinion, a good mix of utilizing torque, top-end speed and endurance, would be a route from Oracle Junction to Mammoth.
total distance is 32 miles.
the elevation difference between the two towns is only 200ft, but there are some 5300ft hills to go over and down again. thats around a 3,000ft climb. thats a lot, when you consider most of the climb happens in just a few miles
EDIT: previously, we went up to 9,157ft in 24 miles, from 2,400ft

I think it should be in Colorado Springs and be like the Pikes Peak Race each year....a race up to 14,000 feet!

Thats my Birthday!
For public visibilty, we could ride old Hwy 84, in view of I-10, from Cortaro Rd to Red Rock. Unfortunately, I don't know of any watering holes in that area that would meet our strict standards (meaning I don't know of ANY at all).
A stock 48cc with a 200lb rider is not a racer, so I will be there to cruise. Cheers."If you are the smartest guy in the room, then you're in the wrong room. - Unknown
