Local motocross enthusiasts compete in Renner

On Sunday, June 9, some dirt bike racers from Woonsocket headed to Renner for an endurance race called a hare scramble. According to the Internet, a hare scramble is a form of off-road motorcycle racing that is conducted on a closed track and varies in distance from 2.5 to 40 miles or more. The terrain is wooded and fairly rugged in order to test the riders’ skills and endurance. An event may incorporate a short portion of a pre-existing motocross track. Some tracks are single width and double width in different portions of the trail. The natural terrain tests the riders’ abilities to navigate through obstacles such as creek beds, logs, hills, mud, rocks and ruts. The winner of each class is typically determined by who completes the most laps within a predetermined period of time. The most common time periods for a hare scramble competition is one, two or three hours. 

In the hare scramble in Renner, Brayden Eagle brought home first place and Tim VonEye came in second out of 11 racers in a two-hour race. Evan VonEye earned second and McCoy Schulz got fourth in their one-hour division. Dayton Eagle earned first place in his division.
