This was probably the most challenging Buckeye Hare Scramble at Arizona Cycle Park to date. The weather was unusually warm for January. Plus, the sand wash was replenished in last fall’s rains which made it soft and deep. Add to the fact we have not had rain for quite a while made the whole off road sections dusty. It truly was a test for man, woman, and machine. Check out the galleries from the four races!
Once a year we get a day to leave the beaten path of the motocross track and forge new trails off in the desert. And that day was yesterday at the AMA Buckeye Hare Scramble at Arizona Cycle Park. It is always a treat to take off out into the desert sand wash or the single track through the foliage surrounding ACP. Check out the action from the mini-est of minis to the grisly veterans that have just as much grit in their personalities as the famed sand wash. Congrats to the winners and to those who were able to complete the marathon riding sessions!
The first race of the new year at Arizona Cycle Park was a two hour Hare Scramble. It may be “January” in other parts of the country, but it was partly cloudy skies, a little breeze, and temperatures flirting near 70° that the riders faced on the six mile loop. Check out the action!
Sand, elevation, motocross, endurocross, straight rhythm, and single track were what racers faced at the 2015 AMA Buckeye Hare Scramble at Arizona Cycle Park, round four of the AMRA series.
