ORGANIZED PRACTICES!!! We rotate the following 3 classes:
Advanced Class - Clearing the large double in the back of the park is optional but the majority of the riders do clear it each lap. This class includes 85cc and larger bikes and ATVs.
Intermediate - No rider is permitted to clear the large double. You must jump it as two separate jumps. This class is generally 85cc and larger bikes and ATVs. There are a few Advanced 65cc riders that ride in this class.
Small Bikes/Beginner - Class is comprised of 50/65cc bikes (no training wheels allowed), beginner large bikes, absolute beginner quads, and adult riders on pitbikes. We watch this class closely and Beginner riders clearing jumps will be bumped to the Intermediate class.
All riders are expected to give right-of-way to smaller riders. This class generally isn't too busy but there are some crazy fast 50/65cc riders that practice at South Fork MX.
Parents may follow beginner 50/65cc riders on large bike or pitbike. Parent must sign waiver and wear a helmet. Adult riders in the Advanced or Intermediate classes can ride a pitbike in this class for no charge.
First 30 minutes is open to Advanced and Intermediate riders. Intermediate riders have the choice of going over the Loch Ness jump or going around the right side of it (since Advanced riders may be jumping it).
We will then start rotating the Beginner class then the Intermediate class then the Advanced class every 15 minutes.
Beginner 50cc riders can also practice in the starting gate area or in the back portion of the front fields located near the road. When you come in the driveway, you would go down the first road to the right. The road extends to that back grassy field area. Small kids can ride in this area. This is not for adults on pitbikes or fast kids on 50/65cc 2-stroke bikes. This is really an area for kids on PW50 type bikes (training wheels allowed).

$450 for a Monday or Friday. We will not rent the track on a weekend or Tuesday through Thursday except by special circumstance so you would need to contact me privately. You can have up to 20 riders on a private rental day. Track will be fully prepped and watered just like a weekend practice day. You must prepay via Paypal or check (with enough time for it to fully clear both banks). You must cancel by 8 pm the previous night to get a refund. If it is obvious the weather is going to ruin the track, you would get a full refund.
The bottom line is we've been promised one time too many that a group of 12 riders was prepared to come if we would open on a Friday only to find out after we opened it would only be 4. We simply can't operate the park at a loss so 4 riders can enjoy their Friday off from work.

Buy a 12 month membership card for South Fork and ride Saturday or Sunday for $25 or ride both Saturday AND Sunday for $40. Rocky Mountain will send a $10 gift card for each membership and $10 each time you ride at the park.
Non-membership ride price is $35 per day.
We are trying out a Family Membership for 2015. It is still $25 for each family member for a 12-month term. However, a family only pays $50 for Saturday or Sunday or $80 total for both Saturday and Sunday. The requirement for a family is 1 or 2 legal guardians raising children under the same roof. This isn't meant to be cousins, brothers, sisters, aunts, and uncles. We realize there are special circumstances so just talk to Connie. We realize sometimes kids are separated from a parent by "address" but are still provided financial support, etc. The truth is we love having families spend multiple days at the park and being involved in the sport. We are happy getting $80 to contribute towards maintaining the park and realize many families wouldn't be able to come often if they were dropping over $100 a day plus all the other expenses. We also realize many dads only get 20 minutes on the track an entire day if they are lucky.
No spectator fee for practice weekends. If entering the track area though, you must sign waiver at the sign-up trailer.
When you pay to ride at the sign-in trailer, you will receive a band. Place the band around the left side of your helmet's chin guard. Wrap it tightly and it won't get in the way. If you wear it on your wrist or bar bad, you will be stopped to show it each time you go out on the track. If you have multiple bands showing, you will be stopped.
Free camping. We have electric on first come first served basis at the front of the park. It is $10 per night for 20 amp service or $15 for 30 amp service, and $20 for 50 amp service. If you plan to camp near our camper, plan on paying for electrical service. I bear the generators on race weekends because there is no choice but on practice weekends I don't want any generators running within 100' of my camper. smile emoticon
