    Well done! Yeah best way to race is to pick and choose your events.. stuff like DVMCC gisborne and murrindindi as well as some of the mcrcv stuff like floweberg and 3 bridges and also national events like 4 day and hattah and that are the way to really enjoy it i think. Straight up vorc season can get a little monotonous. I guess alot can also depend on what format you like.. VORC is heavily sprint based.. i tend to like CC/Enduro etc more. I think i saw vorc more as something that rounded me as a rider moreso than straight up fun

      You should do the Friday/Saturday night pub sprints at the VORC. That is what rounds the weekend off.

          Now I've got a couple of questions. Feel like knob asking so many but i like to be prepared.

          Quick Shade/Pit tents - 3x3 or 6x3, are 6x3 frowned upon because of their size? Full size walls, sides or half size walls? Or harden up a bit, No walls?

          Fuel, Spares and extras -
          Fuel for the w.e. obviously depends on the event but would a full tank and a 16L tuff jug be enough. 25L of fuel in total?

          One set off fresh tyres on the bike enough?

          Spare Mousse tubes?

          Obviously i will take all the usual acceseries that i would take on a trail ride such as tools to do most work that may be required on the bike, spare levers, brake pads, oil.

          Anything else im forgetting?

            6x3 would be okay, but its really more than you'll need, and you'll need to set up earlier to get a decent spot. most people share a 3x3.
            I don't run walls, a half wall or two would be good for extra protection from the sun, but will be more prone to getting picked up by the wind.

            Fuel depends on how much your bike uses, over a 2-2.5 hour cross country I'll use as much as a days trail riding, a day of sprints uses less.
            Two tanks of fuel does me fine for a race weekend.

            Last year I ran a fresh rear every race weekend, and changed the front every couple of races, I also trail rode on the tyres between races.
            I'll probably change less often this year, we're not racing for sheepstations so a slightly worn tyre's not a big deal.

            I always take new set of wheel bearings, a couple of spare air filters oiled and ready, front sprocket, all fluids (brake, clutch, radiator, engine)
            I run 3 sets of goggles (2 with roll-offs) and have a couple of spares lenses handy. Probably heaps of other stuff I can't think of.

              I just turn up with a tuff jug of fuel for the weekend, then invite myself into someone's pit tint. Doesn't matter if you know them or not. Everyone's friendly.



              I take the usual spares that go on a trail ride, plus a spare front AND rear tube, and some pre-dirtied airfilter's, just in case.

                Every year I turn up with less and less. I have had to borrow socks at the last two races I went to.

                An esky with ice and water is good for sprints. A good chair and snacks. Band aids and panadol.

                Spare rear pads like all ktm riders need.

                  Keep that up Keg. By the end of the season you'll be neglecting to bring your bike, and I'll Bradbury you for points for the final podium position.

                    I was amazed at the 350 though. It doesn't have the power of a 450 but has more than a 250, so it was just like riding a bike in between the two, wow.
