Participating with District 16

G

etting started is actually pretty easy, assuming you have the right bike and a way to get to the events, you're already half way there. Finding a dealer and buying a bike: Whether you already own a bike or are planning on buying a new/ used bike you will still have to find a dealer to get parts and service. A local motorcycle dealer that is involved in the sport is a great source to help you get started in racing, and you’ll find that dealer is just important in the years to come. Establish a good relationship with a quality local dealer. When purchasing your bike, it’s important to purchase the correct machine. Racing classes are designed by the AMA to fit the age of a rider to a machine engine size. Youth classes are designated by age and machine engine/ frame size. Adult classes are either formed by machine size and age or rider classification/ experience. You must have a machine that matches your age, ability and the rules of the racing you are interested in. When in doubt, read carefully, double check the rules, make a few phone calls and avoid the heartache of making an incorrect choice. Important reality check... Motorsports racing is inherently dangerous. There is always a risk of serious injury. Riders should not participate in events or ride unless they have adequate medical insurance. Riders and/or their guardians are solely responsible for using adequate equipment. Ride at your own risk. As a rider, you must rely on your own judgment. Although all AMA District 16 sanctioned meets are conducted under the guidelines established in the AMA rulebook and District 16 supplemental rules, each club or promoter may operate a bit differently. Several things you can expect regardless of where you race: •You must be a AMA member to compete in any type of AMA amateur competition. If you are not already a current AMA member, you may join at the facility on the day of an event, or by going to the AMA’s web site at www.americanmotorcyclist.com. Another good tip is to go to the Racing - Getting Started portion of the site, and check into the annual release, in particular for minor riders. Family members, look for the special rates that may be available to you. •You will be required to agree not to sue the AMA or the organizer, at each event you’ll be required to sign release statements. Minors often need additional release forms completed by both parents or guardians. Most events will require parents or assigned guardian be present to enter the grounds as a spectator... best bet, contact the event promoter in advance if you have any doubts. •District 16 registration will also be required. You will be able to join the district organization at the event as well. The Registration information is also on the district’s web site. •All participants and spectators attending a race may be required to pay an admission fee upon entering the facility. Race participants also pay a registration or entry fee in addition to the admission fee. •All participants must wear a protective helmet, eye protection, gloves, a long-sleeve shirt, protective pants and boots that are at least eight inches high. •It is your responsibility to know the rules. Become familiar with the AMA Rulebook. The AMA competition rules are available for

download in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. Go to www.americanmotorcyclist.com. District 16 has some additional rules, and they can be found at www.amadistrict16.com A district organization is composed of enthusiasts like you, as well as clubs, promoters and elected district officials. District 16 covers Wisconsin and Michigan’s UP. AMA District 16 has an abundance of motorcycling activity. The task of finalizing schedules, issuing racing numbers and points keeping is handled at the district level, by volunteers. As a registered member of District 16 you may be issued a racing number if applicable, be eligible to earn points at events in which you participate, and have those points recorded for possible year-end awards. For a schedule of events in your area, refer to www.amadistrict16.com, this event guide, or the Cycle USA magazine which you will start receiving as part of your district membership. All these sources also contain contact information for the event promoting organizations. You can always contact us at District 16 for information on schedules, racing numbers, rules or other questions. A good place to start may be the director/ referee of the side of the sport you want to get involved with... example, the motocross referee to answer a motocross related question. Easier yet, show up at an event as a spectator and start asking questions, you’ll find everyone quite welcoming.

Motocross, fast action for all riders - of all ages

Motocross events are fast paced and action filled.

M

otocross is the most popular form of amateur motorcycle racing and with classes for machines from 50 to 500cc, and riders from four-years-old to fifty plus, it's a sport for

the whole family. Motocross races are run over closed courses utilizing natural terrain and manmade obstacles to test riders' skill and speed. Tracks include hills, jumps and

Motocross offers a full range of Youth classes to make it easy for today’s youngest riders to get involved.

tight turns. One of the most strenuous sports in the world, motocross is a rugged test for both rider and machine. Most motocross events consist of two heats, called motos, that are run for a prescribed period of time, or a set number of laps. Points are earned in each moto based on finishing position and the rider with the best total score is the overall winner. Motocross events in D16 kick off in April, and run through the end of October. Frequently there are multiple events per weekend. These events are all day activities. The practice sessions get started right away in the morning usually followed by a riders’ meeting where schedules and other announcements are made. All the classes will usually run through their first motos before starting the final set. There’s a large selection of classes available, and a majority of the riders will qualify for multiple classes, often on the same motorcycle. Age divisions and engine size usually determines many of the classes, as well as experience levels. The C classes being for new riders while the A classes are dominated by experienced riders and even local professionals. 2018 AMA District 16 Event Guide

2018 AMA District 16 Event Guide


The Youth oriented classes require some sort of rider age for certain engine or machines, referred to as minis. You can get a feel for these class limits by looking over the membership application on the District web site, where you will also find links to both D16 rules and a

link to the AMA rule book. You need to make sure a rider’s age will allow them to ride a particular size mini class bike. There are also limits for how large of a motorcycle riders can be on as they age, so again, become familiar with the rules. Youth classes offer opportunities for riders as young as four years old to get involved.

It is very common for families and riders to make motocross events a weekend affair, showing up the afternoon before the event and camping out. This is just one of the many aspects that make this such a great family sport. Spectators are always welcome and often find the day filled with excitement and good times.

Premier cycle-training at the famous Road America

R

oad America has quickly become a mecca for motorcycle fans and enthusiasts, not only because the popular 4-mile, 14-turn facility hosts the exciting Superbike race every year. But also because shortly after the Superbike weekend subsides, vintage motorcyclists flock to the area for the Rockerbox MotoFest and AHRMA Vintage Motorcycle Classic. The AHRMA/ Rockerbox weekend is crammed full of vintage iron. Fans can walk along the rows of motorcycles and parts while taking in live bands, a custom bike show and vendor offerings. In addition to being a haven for everything two-

wheeled in the early summer, Road America also has its own motorcycle school. The Road America Motorcycle School (RAMS) is one of Wisconsin’s premier cycle-training facilities, educating two-wheel enthusiasts in a variety of

courses. Endorsed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF), Road America’s Basic Rider Courses, Clinics and Dirt Bike School are taught by awardwinning rider coaches who have completed extensive training through the MSF and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT). Successful completion of the school's basic rider course enables participants to obtain a class M endorsement on their driver's license. Widely known as the largest private motorcycle training facility in Wisconsin, Road America’s Motorcycle School is designed to maximize the fun and minimize the risk of motorcycling. A current schedule of RAMS courses and a full event schedule is available online at www.roadamerica.com or by calling Road America, 800-365-7223.


Hillclimbing in District 16

B

Hillclimbs are entertaining for the entire family and there’s classes for youth riders as well as professionals on huge 1000cc plus machines.

2018 AMA District 16 Event Guide

ack in the 1920s, hill climbing was the most popular form of motorcycle competition. Although the number of hillclimb events has dwindled over the years, the enthusiasm of the participants remains strong and District 16 will host eight of these very exciting events in 2018. Hillclimbs are essentially a one-person drag race up the face of a challenging hill and each rider is allowed at least two attempts to conquer the climb. The winner is the rider who climbs the hill the quickest. In cases where riders don't make it all the way

to the top, results are based on footage, or the distance traveled before losing forward momentum. There’s a variety of different classes starting with a youth group and continuing through the open class monsters with ground shaking power. Hill climbs are exciting and very convenient/ popular for spectators and families. You’ll usually be able to get some great viewing without having to move around much, and the action is pretty much non stop, right from the start of the day. If you’ve never been to one of these events, make plans for one in 2018

Enduros - where it all started

E

nduros don’t have mass starts like a Hare Scrambles. Rows of usually 45 riders start every minute. This avoids a lot of the congestion and jockeying in tight, wooded trail. If a rider comes up from behind, and you are caught, you let them by as you are already beat because they came from a minute behind you. Riders of different classes can be on the same row which makes it easy to ride with your friends. Enduros vary from event to event, but are generally run on wooded trail consisting of single track, two track and open fields. There are usually logs, water crossings, rocks, roots and other obstacles that must be traversed along the trail. With land being eaten up by housing and other development, many of the events are held on properties of many different land owners that must be connected via road. There are some “closed course” events around that do not traverse roads, and the clubs hosting the event try to keep the road mileage to a minimum, but in most cases, it can’t be

avoided. So in general, your motorcycle must have a headlight and taillight. The clubs are generally pretty lenient about what constitutes a headlight or taillight, and work with local law enforcement. Enduros have evolved over the years to make the events more inclusive. The days of keeping time are pretty much extinct. In

a “Traditional time-keeping Enduro” the goal was to maintain a specified average speed throughout the course. Within the course were hidden, unknown checks. If you were early or too late you were penalized. Whoever had the lowest score at the end of the day won. Many riders were turned off by the time keeping and just wanted to ride. Recognizing this, the Start Control/Restart format was born. This is the most common format for today’s Enduros. There’s no average speed that must be maintained. Essentially, each section has a start and a finish where the start is the “check in” and the finish is the “check out” and riders are scored based on how much time it took to ride the section. At the end of the day, the scores from each section are totaled, and the rider with the lowest total score wins. If you are out for an easy day of trail riding, your time is longer, and if you want to race full out, your time is shorter. The event can consist of several sections, usually connected via road, or you may ride the same course multiple times, starting/finishing with each lap.

The Annual District 16 Banquet! The biggest and best event of every season

E

ach year the District 16 Awards Banquet arrives on the second weekend of November. In recent years, it has always been held in the popular and centrally located Wisconsin Dells. In 2018 it will be November 10th at the famous Kalahari Resort & Water Park. Riders from all the divisions come together to spend a weekend having fun and celebrating the just completed season.

Top performers get beautiful plaques, and customized jackets. There’s also a bunch of cool door prizes and raffles, often including two motorcycles and a lot of other fantastic prizes, all following a great dinner with special friends. You don’t have to be a top finisher to enjoy this, as it is a great time spent with others that love this sport. We get a very special rate at the resort, so it is a prefect chance to make it a family weekend.

Dual Sports - Fun on/off road riding in beautiful settings

D

ual Sports are catching on in District 16, and in 2018 there are five of these fun events, kicking off in June. To participate in a Dual Sport event you first need to be of legal driving age and have a motorcycle that will be “considered” street legal. We say considered, because of the wide array of motorcycles that can be used at these events. There are the popular on/ off road bikes offered by most of the manufacturers, bikes that you would swear just don’t belong off-road... like the 1000cc plus adventure style bikes, and then converted “dirt” bikes. Bottom line, the bike has to have a license plate, meet maximum noise requirements, and have lights... semiknobby tires are a good idea, but not always needed. Each ride is a little

Some of these events are adventure bike friendly as well.

Great riding with great people, it doesn’t get much better.

different, and if you are questioning your reason... to have a good time, and get in bike’s set-up, a call to the sponsoring some great riding. Give one of the event club is a good idea. Dual Sport events often cover a hundred plus miles per day, and combine some road riding, gravel/ fire roads, and then some challenging off road trails. Usually the most challenging sections have optional routes, allowing the less “off-road” style bikes and less experienced riders to still have a great time by choosing their level of difficulty. These events are noncompetitive, fun rides where rider camaraderie is at its highest. While riding in an event, you’ll find groups frequently stopped trailside taking photos, grabbing a bite to eat, or discussing an adventure they just experienced. The participants will be from all aspects of our sport; racers, experienced trail riders and newbies to off-road riding. if you own a dual sport bike and have never done Everyone comes for the same one of these events, you really are missing out!

looking to ride/ race in the woods and on fun trails, this is where it happens!

2018 AMA District 16 Event Guide

Fun, challenging, endurance testing all well describe the popular Hare Scrambles and GP racing in District 16.


Hare Scramble Racing Off-road fun for all ages

H

Youth classes run at these events as well!

are scrambles are conducted on marked courses over rugged natural terrain. Youth classes usually run for 30 minutes, C class (beginners) an hour. The A, B, and adult age divisions typically race for two hours. Since hare scrambles are conducted on closed courses, operator licenses aren't required and the machines do not need to be licensed for street use, and they are about as off-road oriented as it gets in the midwest. District 16 hare scrambles at times combine a portion of a motocross track and plenty of wooded trails when available. Courses can range from two to six miles in length. Events start mid morning and continue through the afternoon, making for a comfortable day. District 16 has eight Hare Scramble events in the 2018 season, plus another five GP events. Some of them are in neighboring states offering new locations and a mixed group of riders. All the events pay points towards

year-end awards and recognition. These are often great events for newer riders with some trail experience all the way to the fastest of off-road racers. The challenges of the trail are often very reasonable and meant to make it a fun day for everyone. They are like competitive trail rides for some, just to enjoy the ride and added challenge of a little competition.

GP Racing! (New) Introduced in 2017, a couple of our clubs are running GP events. Once again, there will be a class for anyone to fit into and points from these will count towards the year-end Hare Scramble championships. Some will run on a weekend along with a hare scramble. These will have a two moto format, sort of like a motocross. Each roughly 25 minute race will count towards your day’s overall. Courses will likely be a little shorter. This is expected to be a really fun mix of off-road with a little more of the motocross pace and urgency added in.

looking for plenty of ride time? Hare Scrambles offer it for sure. The new GP events offer a more motocross feel to off-road, where you’ll run two motos, each around 25 minutes long. expect them to be a lot of fun as well!

Trials... No Speed Needed

T

rials is a form of motorcycle competition that emphasizes precise balance and control while riding over a designated area of difficult terrain. It’s not a race... only one rider is ‘observed’ at a time. It can be slow, so slow that the rider may even stand still, as long as he (or she) doesn’t put a foot down. The range of skills and techniques employed by the best riders is deceptively varied. Just imagine trying to fling yourself and your cycle up over a five foot wall. Or edging down a steep, rocky, moss-covered hillside, then turning across the slope to cross a large sloping log before charging and winding your way back up. How about leaping and balancing your way up a stream loaded with both

small and large rocks. So, Observed Trials is a battle between the rider and the terrain. The rider who makes the fewest mistakes wins. And since it is essentially a solo battle, the rider can practice at home, even on level ground, perfecting such skills as balance, turning and clutch control. Trials ‘Obstacles’ can even be set up in a backyard. The sport is very spectator friendly... but expect to do a little walking through the woods for the best views. Trials events in D16 offer free spectating, so make sure to check one out this summer! They are perfect for families.

Trials competition isn’t racing, it is a test of skill, with most obstacles actually challenged at very low speeds.

Trials events have a wide range of classes for riders of all abilities.

Spectators can walk the woods, and easily observe a day of fun riding. 2018 AMA District 16 Event Guide

Some trails are open to street-licensed OHMs but not OHMs that cannot be registered by the Department of Transportation for use on public roads. These OHMs are called "limited use off-highway motorcycles" and are commonly referred to as dirt bikes. This list is intended to give you a feel for the opportunities, please research any destination you intend to go to for hours, potential changes in access and conditions.

Michigan offers many trail riding opportunities. An ORV is a vehicle built primarily for off-road recreation. There are different types of ORVs, including motorcycles, ATVs and route vehicles. Michigan’s designated ORV Trail/Route system covers more than 3,800 miles of trails and routes throughout the state, frozen surface of public waters, several hundred acres of special ORVuse areas and state forest roads (Upper Peninsula only). In the Upper Peninsula, it is legal for ORVs to operate on the ORV Trail / Route system, frozen surface of public waters and state forest roads (unless posted closed to ORVs). Trails may be lightly groomed and riders are likely to encounter narrow sand trails, rough moguls, steep hills, stumps, rocks, brush, loose surfaces and other hazards. FREE Riding Weekends!!! The DNR invites off-road enthusiasts to enjoy two Free ORV Weekends this summer. During these weekends, Michigan residents and nonresidents can legally ride DNR-designated routes and trails without purchasing an ORV license or trail permit. Riders save up to $36.25. During Free ORV Weekend, Michigan residents and nonresidents can legally ride DNR-designated routes and trails, including the state's five scramble areas, without purchasing an ORV license or trail permit.
