    Happy April, everyone. Ive always heard the saying that April showers bring May flowers. As we enter this next full month of racing, Im hoping that old wives tale will be proven false. We certainly got a break with winter and from those frigid March races we are so used to. For the most part, the season has started off pretty nice, and we hope that it stays that way.

    Ive also enjoyed the early season race participation. Tomahawk had a huge Loretta Lynn Qualifier turnout, as did the NEOC season opener hare scramble, which hosted close to 1,000 riders at that two-day event. The local races have also seen fairly good rider turnouts for March. As we venture into warmer temperatures, I can only image that things will pick up rather nicely.

    This issue gets us back on schedule, so you can expect to see a MRA every u p c o m i n g month. We have changed our format a bit, hoping to feature more racer interviews and images, and utilizing less space for results. We have built

    a page on our website where you can enjoy those any day of the week plus lots of other cool stuff like race schedules, industry links and updates, and of course our photo page

    where you can link to images from just about every photographer out shooting in our coverage area every weekend of the season. Check out the QR codes below - just scan them with your smart phone and link

    directly to the page desired. Just download a free QR
