This was held in a motorcycle OHV park call Rock Creek OHV ,

May I merge this report with the original thread about the event so people following that thread can see the results there?

Yes , no problem merge threads ...
Thanks amberwolf

Really fun event, this is the future of off road racing.. No shuttle needed
Just ride bike all day... Would like to see 10,25-50 mile off road courses with battery swap...
Solar charged...
Not sure if next stop of Benduro will be able to allow ebikes..
Working on other location in Sierras, hope to post about it soon
August...
Best
Chris
