Of course we are enjoying being back at the track and out on the trails but more importantly the smiles on everyone’s faces when we make our best attempt at making you all more famous than you already are. In this issue find lots of motocross racing from the NJ State Championships to Miles Mountains record breaking North South Shootout. Also find lots of cool hare scrambles and enduro action from our friends at the ECEA and a little bit of short track from down south at Delta. In addition find some off road action, info from the PA OHV and of course our upcoming events and where to ride sections should keep you doing what you love. In addition to all the great coverage here please log onto our website at: www.brappmag.com as often as you can.

Harescramble Rocked Hosted by: ECEA and Meteor Story and Photos by: Joann H. Cornelius The Hurricane Harescramble came in like a whirl wind. This two day event offered the riders a fast mx track, tight rocky trails and a grass track for the main event with beautiful weather as a bonus. Saturday’s event turned out to be very exciting for our ECEA Fast Kidz, and they had absolutely no rain like last year’s event here. They truly had themselves a blast in the sunshine with the fast motocross track and trails, they really tore it up. The overall win for our peewee class went to Kenito Held. Kenito is in first place overall for the season and has really been on fire all year getting all first place wins but one. Our Junior overall went to Nathan Dulaney who also holds the lead for the overall this season. The youth event was interesting with an unusual restart to give the race a bit of a twist. The overall youth win ended up going
6 BRAPP MAGAZINE October 2015
to Landon Bruner who is currently also in the lead overall for the season with Michael Beeler in 2nd and Noah Palmer in 3rd. It will be interesting watching these three battle it out for the last few races of the year. Will Landon be able to hold the win for the season? Sunday’s race was just as interesting with a crash happening after the first few lines left the start which ended up rerouting the race for the first lap. Landon Bruner would end up with another win riding in the school boy division this time. Rounding out the line Jeremey Biggs takes 2nd and Johnny Manera 3rd for the morning overall. In the lead for the season overall in C is Cody Coleman, Johnny Manera and Ryan Gross.
In the Women’s class Shyann Phelps takes first place in her first year riding in the class. She is also leading in points for the year with Samathia Bird in 2nd and Patricia Blaire in 3rd. These women riders just blow my mind every time they pass me. They deserve much recognition for all their hard work and determination. Kyle Mcdonal took the overall win for the main event followed by Thorn Devlin and William Schoeneberg, Schoeneberg is in the lead for the overall for the season with Ryder Lafferty in 2nd and Kyle Mcdonal in 3rd place. McDonal is currently in Slovakia competing in the ISDE. This is the second year for Kyle taking part in the ISDE and the ECEA and Brapp
Mag would like to wish him luck along with all the other riders from the USA competing in this years ISDE, thank you for representing our country. It was a great weekend at Hurricane Lane with the Meteor Motor Cycle Club. You put on an incredible event giving the riders a bit of everything. It takes a lot of work as we all know putting on these events and you guys rocked it. Not only did you have a fast course with 9 laps in the main, but some awesome venders to boot. Plus going the extra mile to help raise extra money to show your support for Kyle Mcdonal way to go, Meteor !! You Rock. View complete results from this event at: www.ecea.org

The ECEA and Brapp Mag would like to recognize our next spot light, Zachary Garrison. Zachary was inspired by his brother Michael to start riding when he was 6 years old when he started out on a CRF 50 with training wheels. Since Zachary started racing he has been doing incredible, this year nailing one holeshot after the next he is certainly on fire. At this time he is in 1st place overall in his class. He is also at 100% with all the ECEA races, NEOC and is a straight A student. For Zachary when it comes to racing he believes in eating healthy and likes to ride his bicycle before a race and says he just wants to have fun, finish the race and give it 100% of himself. We can see that he certainly does that just by his track record this year. When Zachary is not racing he spends a lot of his time with his dogs, DISEIL, BELLA and, SASH all labs which he loves hole heartedly. He loves playing fetch with them in his spare time. He also enjoys going to the beach, the boardwalk and spending time with his friends.
Zachary would like to thank all his sponsors, Mom, Dad, Rich Lafferty, Cycle Playground and Vee Rubber. Zachary congratulations on being chosen for our next spot light recognition and I feel that if you continue on the way you have already done this year, you will definitely come out on top, as you already are - way to go!!!

Ecea and Brapp Mag would also like to recognize Ranger Emmons, Ranger is in 4th place overall for his class this season, he is also in the 100% Club for the ECEA. Ranger likes to ride tight trails and started riding when he was 5 years old on a KTM 50 and when he got on a bike for the first time he thought boy this is going to be fun. Rangers favorite race so far this ECEA season was MCI Sahara Sands and he is looking forward to the upcoming Big Bass Harescramble. He is also a straight A student, and believes in eating heathy. At the races when Ranger is not racing he is always with his brother and sister, Ranger tells me that spending time with his family is most important to him and that he likes just being a kid and doing the things kids love to do like swimming, fishing, crabbing and spending time with his best friend Jake. He also tells me just how thankful he is for his mother and father, he appreciates all that they do for him like taking him to the all the races. Ranger also mentioned to me that his little brother (Tanner) and sister (Madon) also race and they both look up to him. When they are out racing he is always watching out for them. We can see why they would look up to you, you do the things a big brother does for their little brother and sister. Ranger would also like to thank his sponsors with the main one being his family with all their love and support means the world to him and thank you also to Vee Rubber. Ranger you have very special qualities and it is great to see the strong bond that you have with your brother and sister and the whole family. I see how thankful you are that youâ€™re so grateful for your family and being able to race and how much you love just being a kid and loving the things that kids get to do, and having your family there to back you. Congrats on your spot light you so do deserve and earned it!! Keep up the good work!

RPM Foundation at Raceway Park 3rd Annual Ryan Patterson MX School
September 4-6, 2015 The Ryan Patterson Motocross Foundation is dedicated to help teach and inspire the kids of motocross. The goal with RPM is to provide young racers with schooling, nutrition, protective gear, and bike equipment so they can reach their fullest potential on the track. This foundation was started because of Ryan Patterson’s passion for motocross and his dedication in helping young motocross racers.
Attendees broke into groups and rotated through training in the morning then had lunch supplied by John Castaldi from Fun Factory Racing. Then Harold Glissen from Only One Inspiration talked to the kids after lunch before they hit the track for the afternoon training sessions.
This yearly event took place at Raceway Park this year and was attended by 82 riders under the age of 16. Riders had to complete an essay entitled “What Motocross Means to Me” and each made a donation of canned goods for the Holiday Food Drive. In turn they were invited for a day of instruction from some of the top pro riders from the area.
The folks from RPM would like to thank everyone involved for their generous donations of time and goods to help keep Ryans dream alive. Preparations begin in the early spring to make this all happen and if it weren’t for the generosity of the tracks, local dealers, trainers and the countless volunteers these kids would never get this opportunity. On top of the great training and personal interaction with the Pros’s riders were awarded over $30,000 in goods and services that were given away over the weekend. Add this to the great racing at Englishtown and this weekend was one not to miss. RPM would like to thank the following trainers for helping the kids and all who were involved. Brian Carroll, Barry Carsten, Ronnie Stewart, Aron Lampi, Greg Pamart (Frenchy) - GPMX, Ty Wozney – MX School, Dan Callahan-Callahan

Registration, Titling and Insuring Your ATV Who must register and title?
All ATVs in Pennsylvania, except ATVs used solely for business or agricultural purposes, need to be registered and titled with DCNR. ATVs used in Pennsylvania must be registered and titled with DCNR’s Snowmobile/ATV Section. The ATV registration and titling fees are NOT user fees for the privilege of using trails on state-owned land. The fees provide funding to administer the program, maintain trails in DCNR-managed parks and forests, and provide grants to profit and non-profit organizations for developing additional riding opportunities.
Two Types of Registrations Apply: • Registration
For ATVS used anywhere off of your own property or property leased by you, such as designated State Forest trails. $20 fee every two years
• Limited Registration
For ATVs used solely on your own land or land leased by you. Free registration No expiration, unless ownership of vehicle changes.
Plates and Decals
An ATV owner will be issued a registration plate for the vehicle. An expiration sticker to be affixed to the plate will be issued for standard registrations.
If you are using your ATV solely on land owned or leased by you, you are not required to get liability insurance. All other riders must carry liability insurance. Proof of that insurance must be carried with you when you ride. There are no minimum requirements or coverage standards established by DCNR or the Snowmobile/ATV Law for the liability insurance.

Michaux State Forest By Denny Mann The South Penn Enduro Riders held their 3rd Michaux Enduro on September 13th completing the commitment set by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources in accordance with the Motorized Event Guidelines. Over the past 3 years the Pennsylvania Off Highway Vehicle Association and a group of American Motorcycle Associations’ Off Highway Motorcycle Clubs worked long hours with the DCNR to create Guidelines that suited both the user group and the DCNR. SPER realized the commitment that the staff from Michaux State Forest had made and wanted to give back in some way.

them warm hart felt applause because the attendees are very aware of the declining amounts of available public land to hold their events on. This is not only a Pennsylvania issue but affects events all over the country.
Riders prepare for the start of the 45th Michaux Enduro
The Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation, established in 1999 as an independent 501(c) (3) organization, works closely with all 120 state parks and 20 forest districts across the commonwealth. PPFF’s mission is to promote and support the natural and cultural resources of Pennsylvania’s state parks and forests through leadership in recreation, education, conservation, and volunteerism. Currently, there are 39 state park and forest friends groups, or chapters, functioning under the PPFF nonprofit umbrella. These chapters are geographically dispersed throughout the commonwealth. These local, public-private partnerships build bridges between the community and their neighboring state parks and forests, take on tasks and projects that would not otherwise be accomplished, and engage the public in active recreation and the opportunity to contribute to the places they know are important.
SPER soon found out this was not an easy task because government agency personnel can not receive gifts. On February 3rd 2015 Governor Tom Wolf stated, “As elected and appointed leaders, all of us have a duty to be responsible stewards of the democratic process and taxpayer’s hard-earned money. Too often our leaders take advantage of the public, but I am committed to making government work so we can restore the public’s trust and make sure we are being open and transparent. Each of these agencies should join me in enacting sweeping reform to end a practice that has plagued the public’s trust in state government for too long.” Roy Brubacker the Michaux District Forester took the Governor very seriously and wanted nothing to do with SPER’s efforts to donate to his District. So it was suggested by PaOHV to use the Pennsylvania Parks and Forest Fund as the legal avenue for supporting recreational activities within the Michaux State Forest. SPER worked with Marci Mowery, President of PPFF and she bridged the gap between SPER and Michaux District office. This method was received with mixed feelings by the District office and in an attempt to show no connection to this donation the DCNR would not attend the event on September 13th. SPER considered this to be strange but expectable even though SPER paid the wages for the DCNR employees for the event. PPFF Board of Directors member Mary Soderberg received the ceremonial donation check of $2000 from SPER President Steve Bowman during the Enduro awards presentation at 3:30 September 13th in the Michaux Big Flat ATV lot. The crowd gave
In addition to the PPFF support of volunteer friends groups, PPFF strive to improve the visitor experience through inclusive recreation, events, habitat protection, promotion of parks and forests as tools for improving human health, volunteer experiences and opportunities, improvements and expansion of parks and forests infrastructure, and by being a voice for parks and forests. PPFF engage with the public through organized events, volunteer opportunities, outreach, and infrastructure improvements (such as work to improve access for those with disabilities), and through communication

pieces and publications. PPFF’s non-profit status allows ways for individuals and organizations to make charitable gifts to state parks and forests, and ensure that those gifts will be used as intended.

45th Annual Michaux Enduro South Penn Enduro Riders September 13, 2015 In Mid-September we traveled to one of the best kept secrets in Pa for the outdoor enthusiast. The South Penn Enduro Riders have been hosting their Enduro event in the midst of the 85,000 acre Michaux State Forest for 45 years now. This would be a first for me as I have never attended an Enduro before but found it a really cool day spent in the woods. Today’s event brought over 130 riders out competing in 24 different divisions and consisted of two 36 mile loops covering both paved and dirt roads and some of the lushest forest areas/trails around. Participants are scored by time as they complete different sections of the course. The day kicked off at 8:00am with four riders at a time easing off the line. Riders would complete different sections of the course then return back to the main starting area to start their second loop around 11:00am with an awards ceremony at 3:30 that afternoon. Today’s event was special in a number of ways as this would be the first event being held without club icon Joe Galie being with us. Joe was a long time SPER club member who passed recently and his presence was truly missed. In addition SPER made a donation to the PA Parks and Forest Foundation to help maintain the trails within the park system. Please see Denny Manns story here with more on this.

Matter of fact the facility was packed all weekend from practice on Saturday to a huge crowd of spectators for the Saturday evening racing and fireworks festivities. Sunday morning woke to the record crowd and some of the best racing we’ve seen all year.

Chaplains Corner Hello Brapp Fans,
In these turbulent times we live in, it has become increasingly comforting to me to know that Jesus will return for his Church. Jesus is going to take His disciples to paradise with Him. Jesus says He will be our comfort and guide in this life and into the next. My faith in Jesus as my Savior is my present strength and my future hope (I have hope no matter what happens-good or bad).
Saturday Practice from 10:00 to 4:00 and Sunday Race Doublin Gap and PAMX Series. Factory Contingencies & Rocky Mountain Gift Cards BOTH DAYS Double Track Points for DG **OPEN PRACTICE: - $30.00 FOR THE DAY OPEN TO ALL RIDERS (Bikes Only) Oct. 10 and 11 11:30 to 5:00 Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 11:30 to 5:00
You too can have this same comfort by giving your trust over to Jesus. Titus 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; Titus 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Jesus poured out grace for all of us,
p Z a c h a ry A . C a m
You know Jesus promised that in this world we would have trouble. It seems to me much of that trouble is self-inflicted by the choices we make each day. No matter if your trouble is from this world’s trouble or from your own choices, the grace of God is enough for you to overcome it. There is much to be said about victory in everyday life but what I want to share with you is the hope we have in Jesus as believers.
October 24 and 25, 2015 PAMX State Championship Race
This is your track Chaplain Zachary Camp. I have enjoyed many good laps at some of the area’s best tracks but not every race was always so enjoyable. During one of my first races in the expert class I had a good start and I was running in the top four. While in the second turn I looked to my side and saw Tim Schmelyun and to my left Scooter Jones and I became very intimidated. These guys were well known fast riders and as a new A rider in that moment I lost focus on the curled over rut...I went high side and blew out my knee. The day went from great to awful really quick.

BCTRA Flat Track Delta Fairgrounds August 29, 2015 By: Brapp Mag Late August took us south to the MD/PA line for the Baltimore County Trail Riders last outdoor flat track event of the year. As always it’s great to get out to a local short track and watch the guys and girls bang some bars. Flat Track racing is one of the oldest disciplines of motorcycle racing with its roots dating back to the early 1900’s. I love to get out to a few of these each year because you’ll see racers competing on everything from modern motocross machines set up for these conditions to 30 year old Bultacos and Triumphs that can still find their way around the oval fairly well. And then there are the kids. Tonight’s event was loaded in the 50cc divisions and that’s always a ton of fun.
The go carts took the stage to end the show.
To top it all off the Baltimore County Trail Riders who are in there 46th year have a tradition of putting on great flat track racing events. From the short tracks at Delta to the winter indoors at Timonium they always put on a great show. Check out some images and class winners here then head on over to our website at: www.brappmag.com to see more. Also watch for their winter schedule in a later issue of Brapp Mag.
Smith and Wherley battled all night in expert action.
The kid’s foot race is always a hit. Phil Libhart wins two classes at Delta.

Club News Geisinger Fund Raiser at AOAA September 12, 2015
There are Bikes without Motors?... By: Corporal Kaster
The Anthracite Trail Riders, (ATR) and Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area (AOAA) worked with Children’s Miracle Network at Geisinger to put on a benefit ride on Saturday September 12, 2015. In total there were 334 registered riders plus 25 volunteers that raised a total of $4,300 after expenses to help the children at Geisinger. We rode both the Western Reserve and the Eastern Reserve at AOAA for a total of 36 miles. While marking and clearing trails we had not had any rain for weeks and things were getting very dusty, even the usual mud holes were starting to look like puddles. That all changed with the rains we got on Thursday before the ride (yes 11 of us were out all day in the rain working on the trails) plus the rain we got the day of the ride. From the looks of most riders when they returned it looked like they got into a little mud. At least on Saturday we had a nice morning and it did not start raining until around 1:00 pm. This gave those that came early time to ride most of the course before the rain. In spite of the rain I think everyone had a good time. It is days like this that you remember and not the ones that are perfect. We knew we were helping children whose lives are far from perfect and it is fitting that we have a little rain in our lives as well.
So obviously we all want to ride our dirtbikes (or quads) all the time. However, only riding or training on the dirt bike will only work a particular muscle group. This article is going to explain the importance of bicycling! There are many forms of bicycling to choose from. Frankly they are all great options. So whether it’s road bike, mountain bike, fat bike, or even unicycling, they all offer many great training and exercise opportunities. Riding a bike is as easy as well….riding a bike! This basic exercise strategy is one that anyone can revisit from their childhood. You can find a bike that will allow you to ride virtually anywhere. Try riding the CR500 down Main Street, on second thought, maybe you shouldn’t. With that being said, in addition to the very minimal skill needed for bicycling, you can train anywhere. Bicycling is a universal exercise for all! Whether you live in the city, the mountains, or the country; there is a place to ride a bike. Contrary to popular belief bicycling is a great full body work out. Many believe it is only good for the legs; this is far from the truth. Of course it is going to build leg muscles but also hips, thighs and even that rear end! It is also great for the mobility of you joints as well, without the harmful pounding from activities such as running. Stamina is another great benefit of bicycling. It keeps you heart rate up at a nice constant pace for a long period of time; therefore, the more you ride the longer you are able to ride. There are also the unseen advantages such as improved balance, hand and eye coordination, lung expansion and increased Cardio-Vascular fitness. As previously mentioned, bicycling has the ability to keep your heart at a steady, rhythmic pace which has been found to increase cardio-vascular fitness by up to 7%. The British Medical association has found that 20 miles a week on the bicycle can reduce your chance of heart disease by 50%, combine that with the approximate burning of 300 calories per hour of bicycling and you are looking and feeling better before you know it! Not to mention the amazing feeling you get pedaling along a single track mountain trail or bombing down the road at 30 MPH. It’s a great stress reliever after a long day at work, plus think of the gas you could save! With all that being said, how about you start working a little pedal time into your weekly routine. A helpful tip I encourage you to try is to get your pedaling time in at the beginning of the week as a base training activity. Pair that with a good round of circuit training in the middle of the week and you are going to be feeling FASTER and STRONGER! After all, who does not want to be the last one standing at the end of a 20 lap moto or 2 hour long scramble! Ride on!

PVR Vintage Riders Harescramble Coyote Run - Ebensburg, Pa
August 29-30, 2015
Have you heard the one about the guy who goes to a race and a pig roast breaks out? No? Read on. The Potomac Vintage Riders’ Vintage Hare Scramble Series has crested the mid-season hump and is now rolling down the other side. The Coyote Run race happened the last weekend in August and it was a special two-day event. Series organizer Dave Kutskel graciously opened up his private compound to host this stop on the tour, and along with his trail team laid out two different loops for each day’s race. Saturday’s course was a more open and fast trail, featuring some mud holes, some dusty sections, grass trail, fun hills, and some downright beautiful single track through old-growth hemlock and fern forest that looked like something out of a movie. Sunday’s loop was slower and more technical, but still had good flow and little pockets of special challenges including a pit, a wall climb, two creek crossings and narrow winding trail through some sapling stands that would have had the local whitetail herds on their toes, (if they had toes).
Josh Miller won the overall in three of the four races on the weekend.
The club runs their racing in two stages; Vintage bikes (’74 and older) run first. Then the Post Vintage (75 and newer) run the same course a little later in the day- that way the iron men among us can run both. At this round, a kid’s race was held between the two main races giving the little riders a chance to experience what the rest of us were enjoying, albeit on a shortened and much more forgiving loop. Vintage had 18 entries and Post Vintage had 45 on Saturday. Among the Post Vintage entries was the series’ first female entrant, 16 yr. old Sarah Cummings. Sarah won her class, and said she thought the mud was fun, the trees were too close, and other riders were nice to her on the trail. Congrats to her! Series regular Josh Miller set the pace for the morning and not only won the Open Expert class but also took the overall win by about 30 seconds over second place finisher Drew Smith. (Yes, THAT Drew Smith.) Miller did double duty for the overall in the afternoon Post-Vintage race as well.
Drew Smith raced to second in the expert division.

After the racing was done Saturday, the club hosted a pig roast and pot-luck dinner for riders, families and spectators, giving everyone a chance to hang out and enjoy some great food and bench racing with old and new friends. The evening was capped off with a campfire and outdoor movie under the full moon for those with enough energy left after a day of sun and throttle.
Pig roast and awards presentation on Saturday
You’ll be hard pressed to find a better way for a bike guy, (or girl), to spend the day. Sunday’s racing got started after the course was blessed with an early morning rain shower to keep down the dust and grease up the tree roots. 17 Vintage and 35 PV entries signed up to tackle the tighter, more technical loop the club laid out for day two. Despite being the last on his line to get moving due to a hardstarting Husky, Kutskel was not going to be denied. He charged out to the lead before the end of lap 1 and never looked back. He, in his words, “left it all out there” and took a hard-fought overall. The PV race saw Josh Miller take his Maico museum piece to the Open Expert win, and of course the Overall, giving him a 0.750 win percentage for the weekend! Sarah Cummings sat this one out, electing to let her dad Steve ride their shared Honda. He made her proud, winning the PV 200 Novice class. After each day’s racing, riders were mulling around the pit area with big smiles on their faces, everyone talking about what a great job the club had done to lay out excellent courses and provide such a fantastic outing for the riders and their families. And that seems to be what this series is all about. Bring your old bike, get out on the trail, hang out with some great folks who share your passion, and have a great time. By the time you read this, there will only be one or two races left on the schedule, so try and hit one if you can. If that’s not enough time for you, now is when you should dust off that old scooter in the garage, poke through your Uncle’s barn to see what’s under the tarp, or keep an eye on Craigslist to get ready for next year. Technically, it’s racing, but it’s as much of a race as you make it. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better way for a bike guy, (or girl), to spend the day.

Rally in Bear Valley -
POKER RUN September 12, 2015
By: BrappMag Staff
The Rausch Creek Trailriders hosted their second annual poker run to benefit some of the local fire companies in the Bear Valley location just a short distance past the Trailriders grounds near Valley View, Pa. Brapp Mag arrived first thing Saturday morning to a long line of participants who had the same idea that I did. Get there early and ride all day.
The trails were great for vehicles of all sizes.
The event kicked off at 9:00am and even though the line was long, I was in and registered in no time at all. The parking area was pretty full and there were vehicles with any number of wheels and configurations that came to participate. It’s a great day when off roaders from all sides of the spectrum can come together and enjoy a day’s ride. There were people there on motorcycles, ATV’s and side by sides alike. I saw a few guys on the trail riding pitbikes and I even saw a young rider on an original Honda ATC 70. Your sign up included your all day riding fee along with a great pork and chicken meal. A DJ was also in the schedule for after the ride but that may have gotten rained out. I was out enjoying the trail and made it about half way around the 25 mile loop when the heavens opened up and the rain came down. I know what you’re thinking, you quit when it was just getting good. Trust me, when I came to the road cut out I was tempted to cross the road and continue the ride. My main concern was the camera gear I had on board and getting that protected.
Thumbs up for the BrappMag crew.
The Bear Valley course was fun and easily accessible to all. The Trailriders built this course so anyone could come spend a day in the woods riding with family and friends while helping to raise money for the local Joliett and Sacramento Community Fire Companies. If you like you can check out some pictures and videos on our website from the days ride at: www.brappmag.com and make sure you get this event in your schedule for next fall by checking out the Trailriders website at: www.rauschcreekracing.com. You’ll be glad you did.
Over 650 riders attended the ride.
