       NMOHVA and NMTA Announce the Sipapu Shindig

First Annual NMTA/NMOHVA Sipapu Shindig

When : Friday May 31st-Sunday June 2nd, 2013

Where : Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort 5224 New Mexico 518 Vadito, NM 87579 Phone (800) 587-2240

The New Mexico Trials Association (NMTA), and the New Mexico Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance (NMOHVA) are proud to co-sponsor this observed trials event/dual-sport motorcycle rally in Sipapu, NM.

Here’s a taste of what you can expect during this 3-day event :

2 great days of dual-sport motorcycle riding in the beautiful Carson National Forest near Taos, New Mexico-(Friday-Saturday). Friday and Saturday will feature a variety of dual sport, single-track, and road riding options through the mountains of Northern New Mexico. All riding off of ski resort property is strictly "no fee", and at the event participant's discretion. Maps of suggested routes will be provided and we anticipate plenty of people who would be willing to let others follow them as they explore the beautiful and varied scenery around Sipapu, Taos, Angel Fire and surrounding areas.

All road riding requires a legal, plated bike. Trails system riding requires a valid NM OHV sticker or sticker from a reciprical state. The NMTA event is being held on private land (the ski resort) so no stickers are required.

2 great days of observed trials motorcycle competition at the Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort—(Saturday-Sunday)

Saturday and Sunday will feature two rounds of NMTA-hosted observed trials. Both "halves" of the event are headquartered out of the beautiful Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort. Bring several bikes and do it all! Your first competition event with NMTA is free and they encourage all to participate. (must have a current AMA membership to participate in NMTA event and spark arrestors are required).

Free admission to spectate at the NMTA observed trials competition, with easy access to great food and beverages at Sipapu Lodge.

A chance to make new friends, catch up with long-time friends, and support New Mexico trials & dual sport motorcycling. Registration for this event includes a dinner Saturday night, an event T-shirt, sticker, and a chance at raffle prizes. (we’ll have some good swag for you!)

This is a fund-raising event. All funds above event costs will go directly to NMOHVA's Access Defense Fund. Lend your support to the ongoing battle that NMOHVA is fighting on our behalf to maintain/preserve our motorized access to public lands in New Mexico

Mark Werkmeister and Joanne Spivac of NMOHVA have done a ton of work responding to the FS Camino Real District Travel Management Plan trying to help NMTA get more trials areas and to keep trails open in the Sipapu area.  We can't thank them enough.  Please help by signing up for this event!  It is a great cause!

Agreed Brian and thanks! Don't forget the current lawsuit on the Santa Fe National Forest which directly affects our beloved Lake Fork riding area. Don't think of it as "why should I spend an extra $30 for an event when we would already be there" as much as a $30 access defense fund donation to NMOHVA that you will get a BBQ dinner and a t-shirt for!!
