Show-Me 200 & Show-Me 500
« on: February 11, 2019, 01:33:16 PM »
For those who may be interested:

http://www.ridemtra.com/events.html

From their site:

What can I expect?

For the 200, the dual sport is a mix of single-track, gravel, light blacktop, and two-track trail.  For 2019, the course is new and will not be run backwards from the day before.  New trail, new routes, etc.  We will assign individuals group leaders.  Your leader will guide you through the trails over the weekend.  As this is run on private land at times, please NO GPS, and no riding of these trails in the future.  This is not a race, so we can keep you and your friends together in one group, or if someone would like to run with the "fast guys", we can get you in with the right group.


For the 500, its a mix of gravel road, light jeep trail/forest roads, and light blacktop.  Lots of riding to be had. GPS routes are send out the week before the event for you to load into your system.   There are no formal group leaders.  However, riders typically group up to have some fun.

This event is listed on the AMA website for September 14 & 15, 2019. I have communicated with one of the organizers. He tells me there are folks that live in that area that will not take their 690 on the dual sport 200. The single track is tight and technical. So, for you all that have the 250's to 500's that may be right up your alley.
I'm going to attend the event and ride the Adventure 500 route. It looks like fun and that area of Missouri is nice riding county regardless of the surface you're on.
Who else is thinking of attending the event?

I'm wanting to go, and had planned on the 500. From their description the Show-Me 200 is the territory of 250-450cc stuff machines!
