AMA-logo-230PICKERINGTON, Ohio — About 25 riders and supporters celebrated the re-opening of phase one of the Rattlesnake Bay OHV Trails in Mississippi’s DeSoto National Forest on Saturday, the American Motorcyclist Association recently announced.

The Friends of Rattlesnake Bay off-highway-vehicle group joined U.S. Forest Service officials for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for 9.5 miles of trails in an area that has remained “temporarily” closed for more than 11 years.

“We are elated that the Forest Service has begun the process of re-opening these trails, and we want to thank the Forest Service officials and the Friends of Rattlesnake Bay member volunteers for their hard work that made this day possible,” said Dale Tallman Jr., volunteer coordinator for the Friends of Rattlesnake Bay.

SCORE-Logo-11-28-11RENO, Nev.—SCORE International, the global desert racing organization that has held events for over four decades on Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, has joined the massive relief efforts to assist the thousands of people impacted by last Sunday’s devastating Category 3 Hurricane Odile.  While the hurricane pummeled the entire peninsula, especially hard hit was the southern State of Baja California Sur.

In the midst of final preparations for November’s 47th Annual SCORE Baja 1000 that will start in Ensenada and finish in La Paz, SCORE has been working with Cruz Roja Mexicana (the Mexican Red Cross) since this terrible event to facilitate movement of supplies down the length of the peninsula.

AMA-logo-230PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency must stick to its proposed Renewable Fuel Standard for 2014, protecting motorcyclists from the detrimental effects of fuel blends with ethanol content above 10 percent, Wayne Allard, vice president of government relations for the American Motorcyclist Association said today in a meeting with the White House Office of Management and Budget.

“We support the realistic change in Renewable Fuel Standard and Renewable Volume Obligations for ethanol proposed by the EPA last fall,” Allard reiterated during an afternoon press conference. “We oppose any attempt by the administration to backtrack from the EPA’s position for a number of reasons, and are very concerned when we hear that the EPA may change course and recommend a higher standard for 2014.”
