I am so excited to be the announcer for the Rapid Angels Motocross this Sunday. I hope you'll come out to check it out. It's at Dyracuse Recreational Area 15 miles south of Wisconsin Rapids off Hwy 13 on Cty Rd O on Sunday, racing should get rolling around 9am. You can race or watch races for ATVs, PeeWees, and all adult dirt bike classes. Concessions are available on the grounds and spectators 12 and under are free.
For those of you unfamiliar with my background I grew up around motorcycles. My dad has worked at and eventually became an owener of Country Sports Inc in Wisconsin Rapids my whole life. He has also always been a Rapid Angel club member as well as an ATV Club member. He raised us kids on and around motorcycles. We attended the events at Dyracuse every year and as I got older I started helping out whether it was in the food stand, sign up, or now in the announcer booth. I remember watching my brother and dad race there year after year. Two years ago my brother actually proposed to his now wife as he crossed the finish line during the Harescramble. He jumped off his bike still on the track, let it fall to the ground, dropped to his knee, and proposed. It was awesome and just so fitting.
Dyracuse is a special place for riders. It gives them a nice, well kept place to ride and have fun all summer long. It is a great place to practice and race. It is kept up by the town of Rome and the Rapid Angels Motorcycle Club. The funds for the upkeep come from the motocross (4/29/12), up coming hillclimb (5/20/12), and harescramble (9/30/12). Come out and enjoy the races while supporting motorcycle riding in Central WI.
