A staggering amount of work and planning goes into hosting a race

Hosting an ATV or UTV race is much more involved than simply hanging some banners and throwing out a few course markers. Most ATV and UTV races take weeks of planning that culminate in a week long (or longer) effort to build and mark the actual racecourse itself. Everything from safety to scoring and even spectating is taken into consideration and we thought we’d give you the inside track on what all goes into putting on a top notch ATV or UTV race.

It’s worth noting that in a cross country or GP style event, there is typically a lot more work involved than a motocross event, for example. Most motocross tracks are considered closed courses and while the layout and some of the features might change over time, the basic flow and design of the track remains in tact. Most motocross tracks also run a host of events throughout the year so there is at least some level of ongoing maintenance occurring.

As a XC racer I appreciate the ton of work the promoters put into running a race. They work their butts off so we can go have fun for a couple hours, then clean up after us once we leave. I see posts from our crew all week leading up to the race giving the racers/fans updates on how the track is coming along, etc.. Most of them have real jobs too, so this is a "hobby" for them.
