Motorcycle racers will converge on the Bureau of Land Management’s Fort Sage Off Highway Vehicle Recreation Area in Lassen County for a night race from 9 p.m. to midnight, Saturday, Aug. 27. Trails in the racecourse beginning and ending at the Raptor Trailhead will be limited to competitors only.
The BLM expects 40 riders to form into 20 teams for a relay-style race on a measured course. They will complete as many laps as possible during the three-hour event, competing for fastest time.
For safety reasons, there are no provisions for spectators along the course. Team supporters and spectators will be allowed only in the pit area at the trailhead. The event organizers will provide course marshals, and BLM law enforcement rangers will be on hand to monitor the event.
The event is being sponsored by the Lassen Motorcycle Club under a special recreation permit issued by the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office in Susanville.
The Fort Sage OHV Area offers about 100 miles of roads and trails for dirt bikes, all-terrain vehicles, utility vehicles and four-wheel-drive trucks. Detailed information, including directions for getting there, can be found here: https://www.blm.gov/visit/fort-sage-highway-vehicle-area.
