my buddy is racing. He pre-ran Tuesdays and said the same, chatter bumps are a joke. Said course is so bad that Plaster city is a freeway compared.

But wait, these chatter bumps are just washboard, remember. Just bike guys bitching and complaining. Have fun.

I like trails as rough as possible, when its ripping off parts....it adds to the challenge. But if the main trails in havasu are getting that bad, there are "groomers" you can build/buy and drag behind a tractory and smooth them out. Personally i like the roughness, but if its just non stop like this on the main family style trails (not branch trails) maybe someone should work on gromming them a bit?

The only section of the Havasu course that saw a blade was the youth course. But to be clear not only were there chatter bumps, but it was hot, there was dust, and lots of rocks too. It was terrible, no off road racer should ever have to race in those conditions...

not sure what happened but why run a course for over 5 days before the race then race it for another 3 straight days with no water, no prep one deep line on your skid plate to run at aprox a 30 mph top speed. this is why running utv only on a course that has only seen a utv on it ever.... is not a great idea but hey they just go feel what racing a utv on a utv only course is like......... it sucks!!!!
