    Ultra4 Racing has finally arrived again in Landers, CA at The Johnson Valley Recreation Area. Unfortunately our RV is in storage for the harsh Midwest winter but we are fortunate enough to be in California and will be camping at the race for a few days. Looking forward to taking tons of video and pictures to share and getting to talk first hand with the King Shocks folks about possible improvements on our Bronco.

    The big race is Friday, Feb 6th from 8am-10pm and I can't wait! The weather forecast is better for this year so it should be a great time. Only a $20 donation requested for entry which is really reasonable for such an incredible event and goes to support keeping public lands open.

          Dry camping in the dirt is interesting. Wishing we had an RV!

          That's our little red tent down there. See it? Ha ha! This is the view from atop Chocolate Thunder.

            During the race I happened to catch a rollover on a brutal hill climb called "Backdoor". The rollover happens about 45 seconds into the video then the rest is the ensuing complicated recovery effort.

              "The KLiM King of the Motos Presented by Trail Tech proves to be the toughest US extreme enduro."

              This is at the beginning of the race week and unfortunately we couldn't make it to be there in person. Hopefully next year!

              Check out this King of the Motos highlights video from Ultra4 Racing. This is run on the same terrain as King of the Hammers.

                  A big part of the King of the Hammers week of racing is also the Smittybilt Every Man Challenge. Stock and modified vehicles take on the course the day before the pros get out there. It motivates me to want to work on my Bronco more. Check out around 44 - 47 seconds into the video, looks like an early to mid 80's ford. Maybe there's hope for mine?!

                    Here's another cool video of the area, a 360 panoramic view of part of the course. Gives a great perspective on how huge and incredible this public use land is. We are so lucky to have this and need to make sure it stays public!



                    This is a great view of az954rr's Jeep LJ Rubicon descending down one of the hills on the course right before the start/finish line. You see some people camping right near the course. It's great to wake up in the morning to the sound of race cars!
