Yesterday, The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) filed a complaint against the Federal government to challenge the arbitrary closure of, “Trail 38,” a high value single-track motorcycle trail in Wyoming. The BRC Legal Program is representing a local AMA District club and local users in the case. “Though the trail mileage is small, the stakes are high,” said J.R. Riggins, a plaintiff in the suit and Wyoming dirt bike rider. “The Forest Service apparently thought it could fly under the radar and close this trail without meaningful analysis or public process. We are calling their bluff,” Riggins concluded.

It’s been a few years since the WORCS series visited the lush green scenery and tight, wooded trails of the American Northwest, but many saw it as a welcome change from the last couple rounds of wide-open (quite literally as far as the throttle was concerned) desert. Personally I have always enjoyed the races north of the Oregon border- the terrain is enjoyable and the green surroundings are surely a welcome change from the browns and yellows of Southern California- though I’ve never enjoyed particularly good results in the trees. It’s not for a lack of trying, it’s more down to my relationship with trees in general: I’m doing my best to ride smoothly in between them but their roots, branches and trunks just always seem move themselves right in my way. Joking aside, I’ve never quite been able to find the speed necessary to run with the fastest riders in the tighter terrain, but as we headed north I felt my skill on the bike in general had improved since the last time I raced in the forest and there was the added impetus of a championship battle with Gary Sutherlin; I needed to beat him.
