    Region 8 New Rider Advice needed

    Hey,

    Ive been in the sport for almost 10 years now and have always wanted to try closed course racing. I've only been to once race at Lake Anna 2 years ago. So needless to say I don't know too much about racing.

    I'll obviously be running in begginner class at first. However, my ski is setup as a limited. Can you run a limited ski in begginer?

    I am also looking for some advice as to what to bring with me to the first race. And if someone is willing to help set me up and walk me through the first weekend. I don't have a 4wheeler so depending on the race site I may need help dropping in my ski.

    I'm trying to convince some friends to come up with me but may also need to find some holders. Is this a problem?

    Also as far as gear goes. I've got an old MX helmet, and some googles. I'm guessing i need some sort of shoes, a long wetsuit, and gloves. Anything else. Anything you all recommend?

    Thanks

    Cool sounds good. So I just need to register and show up and I should be set?

    This sounds like fun, however I had a major setback last night and was fired so I'm unsure if i can make it to the first race or not.

    Thanks for your help.
