Why You Can’t Afford to Miss the Vurb Classic at MX207


As I’m sure you all know by now, this is normally the portion of the article where I would explain in complete detail what you’re about to read. However, to be honest, I’ve been sitting here for about 20 minutes now and I’m tired of trying to concoct a clever way to introduce this article. Plus, “Why You Can’t Afford to Miss the Vurb Classic at MX207” is pretty self explanatory. This being said, before your attention span gets pulled away quicker than clicking on a related youtube video — let’s begin. 

The Track 
Okay, this one’s a no-brainer. MX 207 is one of the raddest tracks that you’ll ever set two circular pieces of rubber upon (I’m talking about tires, get your mind out of the gutter). Let me explain. Have you ever thought, “Man, I wish there was a track that I could slash big loamy berms, blast through a gnarly rhythm, and toss it sideways off of some mellow faces all in one lap.” Well, your wish has come true young grasshopper. Our very own Danny Stuart has put his heart and soul into creating one motocross facility that encompasses every fun portion of motocross that exists. On top of that, these berms, ruts, rhythms, bumps and boota’s are all formulated by some of the best dirt in the Northeast. Basically, if sand and topsoil went on a date, eventually got engaged, devoted themselves to each other in a lawfully wholesome marriage, and then decided to produce a dirt-child — that’d be the dirt at MX 207. Okay, I think that’s quite enough. Let’s move on. 

The Competition 
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get some seat time in with some of the fastest kids in the country before you have to race them in a high pressure situation such as… oh, I don’t know — Mini O’s? Well, it just so happens that Stone Edler, Robby Marshall, Ramyller Alves, Justin Cokinos, Justin Cooper, and countless other rippas have confirmed that they’ll be in attendance this weekend with a target on their back just for you. Where else can you gage your pace against some of the fastest kids in the country in a completely low pressure situation? The answer is basically nowhere, in case you were wondering. The good news for you is that if you’ve got what it takes to battle it out with these shredders, you're gonna make a name for yourself pretty damn quick. And if you don’t, it doesn’t even matter, because I will guarantee that you’re going to leave the Alias MX Vurb Classic with a whole lot of fun memories — which leads me to my next topic…

Alright, let me spell it out for you. “F” if for friends who do stuff together, “U” is for You and me, N is for anywhere at MX 207 up here in the great Northeast! Well, Spongebob described it a little differently, but that’s close enough. For anyone that doesn’t know, the Alias MX Vurb Classic is completely and utterly focused on you having an extremely fun time, and this weekend will be no different. With slow bicycle races, Alias MX FreeMix 2-Stroke classes, a plethora of incredible awards, and some of the most hospitable people that you’d ever find inside the motocross biz’ — how could you not have a good time? This event, as well as every other Vurb Classic, is focused solely on creating a motocross environment that will produce a weekend full of good vibes and no stress, while still providing some of the most exciting racing you’ve seen in quite sometime. How is this possible you say? Well, think about it. When have you rode the best in your life? Oh yeah, when you’re having fun. So it only makes sense that a fun environment is going to produce some of the greatest racing you’ve ever witnessed, and/or participated in during your motocross career. Let’s put it this way, if you don’t have a supercalifragilisticly dope time at MX 207 this weekend, my name is Eric Shirk, and you can feel free to talk to me about any issues that you’ve had. (Please don’t kill me though. I’m trying my best here… seriously.)

All jokes aside, if you don’t make it out to MX 207 this weekend for the Alias MX Vurb Classic, you’re going to be missing out big time. I can assure you that this event is unlike any other dirtbike race that you have ever attended. So pack your bags, load up the rig, and head on up to MX 207… A.S.A.P.! (Only if you’re into super good times though — no grumpy guses allowed.)
