On Nov. 7, 2010 the DIRTRIDERS, Inc. held their 18th annual charity race.

This 3 hour Hare Scramble event was for the benefit of Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Macon County.

To participate in this race, riders paid a $10 entry fee and donated a new unwrapped toy with a retail value of ten or more dollars.

Conditions for the event were ideal. The temperature hit a high of about 70 degrees under a clear sky with about a 10 to 15 mph breeze. It had rained about a inch on the Thursday before so dust was minimal. 142 riders participated and about $3000 in cash and toys was presented to the BB/BS foundation to help promote their Christmas Partyn.

There are over a hundred photos here (courtesy of club member Bob Johnson and Steve Arteman) If you recognize a certain rider and would like to get their name posted with their picture, send me the info and I will take care of it. If you have pics to share, email them or mail them on a CD or DVD and they may be posted also.

Thanks and enjoy the pics.

Now for the big bikes. I picked a few of pictures and identified the riders.
If you would like a caption for other riders, email me and I will do my best to fulfill the request.






































































Ed Catlin: One of the founding members of the club.
Ed (68 years old) partnered up with Mark Whitted and rode in the +50 Team event.












Just follow the arrows stapled to the trees.........
Or try to follow the guy in front of you; whichever works best.

Here's a place to pass


















Getting a helping hand















Ed Catlin - lookin' good


















Kyle Steinbaker - using all the suspension travel here
























There wrer plenty of "helping hands" when a rider had a problem


















One of the fast guys tearing up the trail






Gettin' a little air















The idea is to ride - not push.
But maybe he's just picking it up after crashing?



Not sure, but this might be Mark Whitted who is riding with Ed Catlin in the +50 Team





















Lookin to pass? Ran off the course? Trying to cheat?












Kyle Stinebaker - late in the day and all alone


















Here is where they found MUD to ride through



The "bottle-neck", slowing the riders down,
forcing them into single-file getting ready to be scored.



The score-keepers record the lap times of each rider.



Dalton Garecht receives his trophy



It was certainly a beautiful day for a race!
