For all TNMX, off-road, and Flat track events, sign ups open about an hour before practice begins. In person sign ups only. All events are open to both members and the public.
A: We all want to ride too! Many of our riders are young, and though the big bikes might be able to get around the circuit in 6 inches of clay mud, the 50's won't make it down the start straight. Because of this, in extremely wet conditions we don't get enough entries to cover the costs of holding an event.
For the first practice of the year, we are also limited by our ability to put heavy equipment on the track. If the bulldozer can't do track prep, we don't run an event.
We get it. MBMC is a non-profit run by volunteers; everything we charge is to cover the costs of operation. Property tax, Liability and Property Insurance, Equipment Maintenance, and Utilities are just some examples of major year round costs that all have to be covered by relatively few events during the summer.
1000's of hours of volunteer time go into keeping the club up and running, it is a labor of love. Our prices are the minimum that we need to pay the bills.
MBMC is run by volunteers, each TNMX round takes about 20 people working 4 hours apiece, not including track prep. It just isn't realistic for us to do more than one event per week with the people we have.
If we had more volunteers, we could have more events...
We hear you! As one of only a handful of MX facilities in Western Washington, we know you want to come ride on the weekends. We are limited by the number of members available to operate the track on Saturdays and Sundays, many of our most dedicated volunteers also travel to events all over the west, and some even further afield.
This year, we will be hosting a round of Pac-West on Aug 1st and 2nd, as well as an open MX practice on May 2nd.
