The TITAN Hare Scramble by KENCO Motorcycles
Vancouver Island Hare Scramble Series (VIHSS) Round 5

Volunteers are needed, please contact Geoff Ross via FaceBook

The TITAN is a fairly new Vancouver Island race that began in 2012. This
year we dedicate the race to the late Lars Nyberg of Sooke. Lars was one of us, A mountain biker , dirt biker, and a trail builder. Lars built many trails on south Vancouver Island and several at the Tansky Rec Site. Lars' latest trail (before he passed) was close to being complete and so we got together with the mountain biking community to have a work party in order to finish this last trail. We call it "Lars from Mars" ,and this trail is part of a greater vision that Lars had of connecting several "gravity" trails together to make a continuous run from top to bottom of the rec site. There are still a few sections to be built. We are including sections of Lars' trail in this years TITAN race. ENJOY !

LOCATION
The race will be held at the Tansky Rec Site in Jordan River on South Vancouver Island, this is west of Sooke

There will be race route arrows at the hi-way turn off for you to follow.
There are many places to park or camp along the 3 km route to the race staging area, There will also be certain sites ribboned off limits (reserved for staff)and/or part of the race route. Please respect these areas and find somewhere else to park. There are several camping/overnight sites that are big enough for a camper/trailer combo. these are first come, first served, but please, if you are in a truck with no trailer, avoid using up a large site that would accommodate a truck/trailer. Race-day parking will be mostly along both sides of the JR Main logging road (keep one vehicle width open for emergencies)where space is available (we hope to have a parking attendant, do you want to volunteer? contact us)

FIRST AID: will be on hand. Please note THERE IS NO CELL COVERAGE IN THIS AREA

RULES
VIDRA Rulebook

LEGAL: This race is run on "Crown Land" and therefore subject to the laws of this province and while we have never seen (law)enforcement of the OHV registration plates/decals, you are riding on or crossing "Resource Roads". The law states that OHV "registration" (at the least) is mandatory to ride on crown land, and that insurance is required to ride on or cross public resource roads. This is up to you. VIDRA does not enforce this.
