Pilgrim Sands Trail Riders – Woods O' Cross Series 2019


Series Information

The Pilgrim Sands Short Course Series is partnering with Wareham MX to provide a fun, safe racing opportunity. The course is a combination of a motocross track and woods trails, around 2-3 miles in length. All racers must obtain a transponder which sticks under the racer’s visor, available at Sign-In.

Race Format

Each heat lasts one hour. The checkered flag, signifying the end of the heat, comes out 60 minutes after the first row starts. PSTR reserves the right to shorten the heats at our discretion. There will be 30 seconds between each wave.

Classes

Classes are based on a combination of a rider’s ability and the motorcycle they are riding. Riders should enter the appropriate class based on their ability.
