The Appalachian Championship Enduro Series continues with Round 2 on Sunday, April 9, in Wellston, Ohio. The Little Raccoon Classic Enduro is a restart format enduro hosted by the Appalachian Dirt Riders.

“This past weekend the trails were in really good shape following a flash flood on Friday that caused our club to do some minor re-routing,”,” said Michael Jolly, ADR club member. “The ADR crew has five tests with the mileage as follows: 10.4, 7.2, 4.5, 5.0 and 6.5. The first two tests will be run at 24 mph average and the last three will be ran at 30 mph. There is only eight miles of road throughout the whole event.”

Riders should log into LiveLaps, and create a rider profile BEFORE THEY GET TO THE EVENT. If they already have one, then they are ready to go. Otherwise, they will have to stand in a separate line to do it at the race.

Riders should go to to create a rider profile.

Online Rider Profile Setup

  • Each rider will set up their personal profile online (1 time only). Once you set up your personal profile, you will receive a LiveLaps ID number that is unique to you. A rider can edit their info at anytime, so you can up-date your class, bike brand, etc.
  • Personal profile mandatory info includes: Name, address, birthdate, emergency contact, AMA number, class, bike size and bike brand.
  • Personal profile optional info includes: Riders photo, sponsors, social media links, local series numbers and phone number.
  • That’s it! Come to signup at the event, and we will take care of the rest.

Registration at the Event

  • At the event, you will come to signup with your transponder chip if you already have one or purchase one for $10. The transponder will be programmed while verifying your class.
  • Riders will still draw for row numbers. Yes, pro spots on rows 21-25 will be reserved. If your a pro that doesn’t have a reserved row, you must contact the club by Wednesday before the event.
  • Riding with friends: If you want to ride with friends, the first person to draw will be given a row number and the three additional friends can be manually added to that row by the staff running signup.

Event Scoring

  • Be sure that your chip is adhered to your numberplate sticker that is given to you at registration. Then attach with the industrial velcro we supply. These chips will be attached opposite your brake hose. (the left side of the numberplate when looking at your sticker). You may use clear tape over your chip to further secure the chip if you are concerned that you may lose it. DO NOT use duct tape to secure the chip. It will stop the chip from being read at the check points.
  • You will “STOP” at each checkpoint the same way that you would if you had a scorecard on your fender. The check crews will use a hand-held device to “SCAN” your chip at each of the checkpoints. This is faster than writing on a scorecard. You may leave the checkpoint once the check crew has your scan confirmed and tells you to “go.”
  • At a “RESTART” “IN” check, your chip may be scanned before you are released to enter the section. The checkpoint crew will release you once your minute flips. As long as you are early to your “IN” checks, your scan will read your keytime for the check. If you are late to an “IN” check, you must be stopped and scanned as you come through.
  • Once the event is over, remove your chip from your disposable ACES event rider number decal. Keep the chip in a safe place for the next ACES event. Bring your chip to sign-up at the next ACES event. If you lose your chip, you can purchase a replacement for $10.

Event scores will be viewable on under ACES and the event name.

A gas trailer will be available for those who do not have a pit crew with them.

For competitors choosing to camp, there is space available at the race location. It is all primitive camping (no water/electric).

Saturday night sign-up will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Race day sign-up starts at 7 a.m. and ends at 9:30 a.m.
