Motorcyclists enjoy late-winter races at Dry Valley
A cool and dry late winter day greeted motorcycle riders of all ages and abilities for two days of racing March 6-7 on public lands in the Dry Valley area of northwest Nevada.

Bigger, faster motorcycles and experienced riders dominated the day on Sunday. These racers competed on longer courses with much more challenging terrain.
Competitors raced on courses ranging from two miles to 42 miles in length. Routes, which included existing roads and trails, were pre-approved by the BLM as part of the race use permit. There were no reported serious incidents on injuries.
