Meet your 2016 AA Hare Scramble Racers

By Leanne Dutlinger

For the most part, New England racers were graced with an unusually merciful winter in the Northeast giving them an extra edge as their seat time was hardly affected by the little snow that we received. The time has come. Off season work is in, bikes are prepped, and thoughts of another rocky, rooty, brownie-batter-dirt filled season is underway starting May 1st in Hurleyville, NY at the Tri State Clubs Morningside…

NETRA’s New President – Tony Gasper

When did you start riding and what was your first bike?
My dad got me a Z-50r when I was 9 and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.  Even on our tiny quarter-acre lot I had a ton of fun just riding in the back yard.  That started a long string of ’80s and ’90s Honda…

We cannot let this bill get beyond their vote!! Below is a link to their information. You must…
