CTR members in the news

Well, our members may not make it to the pages of Dirt Rider or MX Action. But,  Frank (love him or hate him, the guy who laid out the A & B loops for the Flagstaff Mountain Madness Dual Sport) just headed up the project to re-coat the 14 foot mirror at the Discovery Channel telescope. With that kind of eye to detail, no wonder the GPS tracks were so good! And you thought your job was out of this world?!

We have a very important mission tonight, to finish off the beer left over from the Dual Sport event. 6:00 pm at the State Bar on Rte 66 in downtown Flag. Be thirsty and bring a growler. Oh, and we’ll discuss club business too……

Thinking of camping at the 2016 Mountain Madness Dual Sport?

Fort Tuthill county park has both tent and RV camping. Camping reservations are going fast, you can check out the availability at

The club has also reserved the overflow camping area. This is a no-frills set-up – no fire rings or picnic tables but still close enough to the bathrooms and event site. It can accommodate tents, campers, and RVs. Email if you want to camp but there are no sites left.
