Earlier this month, Terrain Racing was the center of the OCR world after three races were postponed to 2017 and their registration system had a glitch in their system. This happened in the wake of BattleFrog Series closing up shop and the industry was still reeling from the announcement. Today, Terrain Racing issued an apology to the OCR Community for the undue stress the postponement caused on many who love OCR.
An eight-hour drive on a Friday afternoon through desert roads that reached 118 F. Setting up a tent in the dark. Post-race thunderstorm, and damp sleeping bags from not sealing the windows before we went out. Getting up early on Sunday morning and facing another 8h long drive home. All of these were totally worth it for the chance to run the Terrain Race in Flagstaff on Saturday.
Terrain Race Dallas was an excellent race to kick off our OCR racing season after taking the first two months of 2016 off. The race was held at Village Creek Motorcross in Fort Worth, TX and they offer both a 5K and 10K distance with competitive waves in both distances. We chose the 5K race. I was a bit apprehensive about the race being held on a motocross site because I envisioned endless loops on a dirt course up impossibly steep climbs and barreling down the ensuing declines.
