McCALL, IDAHO, JAN. 7, 2013

Flashpoint, the world’s premier snow-bike race, is coming up on Saturday, January 26. It will be happening on the McCall Golf Course in Idaho, right in the middle of the 48th annual McCall Winter Carnival, which is a great, family-friendly event featuring fireworks, ice sculptures, and much more! Come watch wild, handlebar-to-handlebar racing, starting at 2:30 p.m. Visit www.flashpointsnowbike.com for more information.

The 2013 Northwest Hillclimb Series will kick off this year with a new, earlier date for round one, the World’s Steepest Hillclimb, which will be held at the Owyhee Motorcycle Clubgrounds in Boise, Idaho, on Saturday, March 30. Round two will be the third annual Northwest Nitro National, held in Yakima, Washington, April 26-28, and of course the 11th annual Big Nasty Hillclimb is set for September 13-15. Visit www.bignastyhillclimb.com for more information.

We are adding an all-new, nonmotorized weekend at the Big Nasty Ranch on May 18-19, too. It will feature a 3-mile mud run on Saturday and a mountain-bike race on Sunday. This will be a total hoot, kind of a “Dirty Dash” kind of thing with assorted water crossings, mud pits and rope climbs. Come and visit Big Nasty Land in May for a whole new kind of experience.
