PICKERINGTON, Ohio (May 28, 2015) – Competitors will roll off the line at the third round of the Appalachian Championship Enduro Series this Sunday, May 31, in Chandlersville, Ohio, at the Freeland Antique Power Club Grounds.
The Grassman Enduro, a restart format enduro hosted by the Ohio Woods Riders, will feature six special-test sections. An 11-mile test section will be the highlight of the day. The 70-mile course is loaded with single track and unique terrain tests.
“The Ohio Woods Riders have put together a really great course,” said ACES and Ohio Woods Riders President Kory Young. “We’ve spent the last seven months cutting new trail, and opening up trails from years ago. These trails are 100 percent on private property, and a lot of fun to ride!”
Young also said there is a short woods/grasstrack transfer section prior to the first section, and racers can ride this Saturday as much as they like, but must sign the liability release first.
With an average of 160 riders for the first two rounds, the series strives to keep riders coming back.
“Whether you’re a novice or a pro, ACES races are meant to be challenging, yet fun,” Young said. “We see so many riders return race after race because they enjoy the trail, hanging with their buddies and bringing home bragging rights. Newer riders can test the waters with either the sportsman class, or dual sport class.”
Fresh tires are advised, as Young says the club has “some nice hills” in store for competitors.
There is free primitive camping, but no campfires are allowed. A food trailer from the Rushing Wind Biker Church will be at the event for breakfast sandwiches, coffee and juice. There will be burgers and hot dogs available after the race.
There will be two Sheriff deputies working for the Ohio Woods Riders at the event. There is a “Spartan Run” event taking place just a few miles east of the enduro location that could cause traffic to be jammed at times.
Modified travel directions:
From the east: Take SR83 south from I-70. Take SR83 to SR313 west. Go left on Herron Road (gravel), and left on SR146. The club grounds will be on the left. Pink arrows will be up from SR313 to the start.
From the west: Normally SR146 east from Zanesville is the fastest way. You may want to explore backroads just to avoid the Spartan Run traffic. If you take SR146 east, give yourself some extra travel time.
