Race organizers reported no serious injuries in the two-days of events. BLM Outdoor Recreation Planner Marisa Williams said she was pleased that racers stayed on the posted and approved route that follows designated roads and trails within the OHV area.
The Fort Sage OHV area, west of U. S. Highway 395 about 40 miles north of Reno, offers about 90 miles of trails for motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and four wheel drive vehicles. It covers about 22,000 acres of public lands managed by the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office.
