No one has done more with less for so long.
The Virginia Cross Country Series (VXCS) has done it’s last event.
When established is 2002, there were numerous goals that I wanted to accomplish.
Create a series for bikes and quads
Keep it small
Race once a month
Find new venues to hold events
Give riders more opportunities to ride
Get away from the politics of off-road riding
I accomplished everything I set out to do except the last one.
We did some cool things!
We did National Hare Scrambles events before the AMA split between east and west. After the split, we did east coast hare scramble championship events.
We did a GNCC / VXCS event.
We did a combination VXCS / VCHSS event. We did an event in Chesterfield County, on church property, on a Sunday. Beat that one!
We had some unique awards.
We had the best bike courses, period.
Our ATV courses evolved into being rideable and raceable.
What I am most proud of is the list of locations the VXCS found and introduced to off-road racers.
Virginia Motorsports Park
Lake Sugar Tree
Virginia International Raceway
North Carolina Center for Automotive Research
We also introduced riders to races at existing facilities.
Wicomico Motorsports Park
Promoting events is costly, time consuming, and if done correctly, a lot of work.
If you are in it to make money, you’re not very smart.
You have to be enthusiastic, love what you’re doing, and be consumed by it.
I am not that person any longer.
For the riders who truly appreciated what we were doing, I know your disappointment. You are the only reason we have carried on for the last few years. I am so sorry.
Some riders never understood, didn’t care, and never will. Not sorry.
Lone Rider Productions LLC was formed to promote the Virginia Cross Country Series and will continue to promote selected events as time, health management, and enthusiasm allows.
I can’t begin to thank the landowners, volunteers, and my own family for their cooperation, dedication, and loyalty to my dream.
