“With a $6,000 purse and a world-class course, our event is becoming internationally recognized,” said David Chambers, Rev Limiter communications director. “Spectators will be watching some of the best male and female riders in the world at this premium off-road event.”

The B Class riders will head off at 10 a.m., the A Class riders start at 12 p.m.
