Join us this Saturday near Jericho, Utah as the Sage Riders MC host Round 5 of the AMA/Kenda National Hare and Hound Championship Series near Little Sahara OHV area!

With prime weather conditions in the forecast – highs near 70 degrees – this year’s event will be far different from last year’s snow and mud-fest. The Sage Riders have laid out a total of 120 miles of race course with each loop totaling 60 miles each with one alternate gas pit stop for each loop. Gas trucks will leave the main pit at 10:45am sharp. Please put your race number # on your gas cans. (more info will be provided in the rider’s instructions and at sign-ups)

At this year’s event, both ATV’s and UTV’s are also welcome to participate with the club allowing the ATV’s to race the first loop twice for the A & B classes, to total 120 miles.
