For those that go both ways (or those like me that used to)
 
FTR hare scramble race last weekend in Bartow.
 
Brutal track, hardpack/concrete like holes.

Gets my heart rate going just watching....

So funny, as I'm watching this video and I keep trying to reel in riders ahead of me in my mind. I guess once you race you can't just casually watch a video like this. I used to hate straight aways when people were ahead of me. You never knew when they might decide to have  break attack and cause you to slide out into the weeds. I had only of the only electric start bikes in my class so 9 out of 10 times I got the hole shot and maintained it. Didn't go the FTR route due to not being all that competitive (was more of a fun racer). We took part is a low budget series in Perry Ga which was split between two different trails that alternated every month. What a great time that was. I just wish we could ride some of the places that FTR holds their races at. Florida really sucks for dirtbikes/atv. They do make up for it in mtb though. I think we are pretty damn lucky at least in central Fl.

Exactly, there are way more places to ride MTB, Vs Moto today.
 
MTB makes more sense today for me.
