We've spoken with several pro teams and it's shaping up to be a good battle between Orange and Blue. Both teams are sending their biggest names. Yes, Yamaha did sign the current GNCC Champ. Yes, KTM has the current Nat'l Enduro Champ. Those guys and many more are planning on attending the Battle of Atlanta. We asked some of the pros for some input on the obstacle course and they said "make it hard" and so we are. Good luck to the rest of you Of course, every obstacle will have an easy grass track bypass.


The "Planks of DEATH"




The "Treehouse of Terror"



Yes, that's the up ramp on the right and that's the down ramp on the left. No we don't need longer beams, there is a little bit of a drop.

Those two^^ obstacles are probably the most unique and maybe the most difficult. The bypass for these obstacles will be loooong as the reward for a higher risk obstacle will be substantial.



We have a firewood pit



(some assembly required)

We haven't really started the logs section but we do have some generic off camber powerpoles as part of the obstacle course. Yes, they will have a bypass too.


We're working on many more obstacles and we have 10 skidder tires to pick up. Also, many car tires to pick up and put on a power pole like doughnuts on a stick. Both ends of the power pole will be supported so the car tires are just a little off the ground.

The creek jump passed the beta test phase. Now we have to get the Bobcat down there and firm up the jump.



All of the bridges have fencing nailed down for better traction. (this picture was taken before we put the fencing down)

Oh, and welcome to our newest sponsor WESTERN POWERSPORTS!!! THANK YOU!!! Your donation of large quantities of trail ribbon and arrows is greatly appreciated.



That's Alex ^ doing the Planks of Death. And I must say, it is a little intimidating. But, he did it, twice even. The poles are several feet in the ground and the planks are attached with lag screws. They are stable
